The LEGO Movie 2’s Sweet Mayhem Alternate Figure Revealed

The LEGO Movie 2 sets are about to be released this month (right after Christmas exactly), and now that LEGO has listed the first wave of sets for this theme at shop.LEGO.com, it seems that more info is coming in regarding one of the film’s mysterious characters. The person of Sweet Mayhem is still shrouded in mystery, but thanks to LEGO Shop@Home, the character under the enigmatic helmet is now revealed.

There are three sets in particular that includes Sweet Mayhem’s minidoll figure. And among these three sets, we get to see her featured at the back portion of some these sets as posted on LEGO’s shopping portal. To be exact, only two out of three sets actually shows Sweet Mayhem with her helmet off, revealing a personality that is both sweet and chaotic at the same time. Take a look below.

 

Introducing Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi (70824)

115 pieces | Ages 6+ | $9.99 USD

 

Sweet Mayhem’s Systar Starship (70830)

500 pieces | Ages 9+ | $69.99 USD

She kinds of remind me of Vanellope von Schweetz from Wreck it Ralph in terms of personality. From the looks of it, my guess is that she can be both emphatic and mean at the same time. Will she turn out to be the film’s lead baddie as we thought she will based from the trailer? Will soon find out in February once the film lands in US theaters.

The LEGO Movie 2 is slated to hit theaters on February 9, and voiced by the same awesome artists from the first film such as Chris Pratt (Emmet and Rex Dangervest), Elizabeth Banks (Lucy), and Will Arnett (LEGO Batman) among others.

The LEGO Movie Streaming For Free on Black Friday

By now it’s plain to the LEGO community – and perhaps the cinema-going community as a whole – that The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is a major big deal. Considering the runaway success of the original back in 2014, it’s no surprise that the anticipation for it’s gone fever pitch. And perhaps, the excitement for the LEGO Movie sequel can only be escalated even more by a most generous gesture from LEGO and Warner Bros. in time for Black Friday. They’ve inked a deal with video-sharing giant YouTube to do something incredible: to have The LEGO Movie streaming for free.

Oh, yes. LEGO-Warner and YouTube are going big when it comes to hyping up the further adventures of Emmett, Wyldstyle and friends by giving fans a free viewing of the first big film from this epic franchise. It’ll help everybody refresh their memories of four years ago, in preparation for the sequel’s coming next year.

To avail of the free LEGO Movie streaming, fans need only visit YouTube on Black Friday, watch the latest trailer for The LEGO Movie 2, and clicking the ad to watch the first LEGO Movie, free of ads (because it’s inserted as an ad itself). Speaking of TLM2’s newest trailer, you may want to check out our review and fan theory surrounding the sequel’s official trailer

But remember! This window lasts only for all 24 hours of Black Friday/November 23. In addition, it may only be available within certain territories, not worldwide (a big bummer, really). As for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, don’t forget that it premieres next year on February 8, 2019.

Here Are Seven Things That I Noticed After Watching The LEGO Movie 2 Official Trailer

A few hours ago, Warner Bros. Pictures has unleashed another trailer that will make 2019 more awesome. The LEGO Movie 2 official trailer has been uploaded over the internet and in case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the clip that shows a handful of new brick-built, and minifigure characters to watch out for.

As expected, the TLM2 official trailer is jam-packed with details that we could have easily missed if not for that handy pause and screen capture button. And now that the cat is out of the bag, here are some of the things that I’ve noticed that are either surprising or puzzling about the events that took place in Bricksburg following the aftermath of the infamous Taco Tuesday. Not only that, but also the presence of some of the main characters that we saw in the first LEGO Movie are noticeably absent in the trailer such as Good Cop/Bad Cop and his boss President Business.

These and other interesting, details are outlined here which will hopefully be answered when the sequel arrives in theaters on February 8, 2019.

The city of Bricksburg will never be the same again.

As Lucy mentioned in the trailer, they need to be tough in order to survive the hard, cruel world where they now live in. After five years since the events of Taco Tuesday, the good ol’ people of the city eventually learned to adapt to their apocalyptic world as seen on how they carry their usually brooding themselves – except probably for Emmet. Most of the city’s landmarks were also drastically changed, and even Batman’s abode was never sparred. The good thing though is that the highly fortified Batcave has now become a saferoom for the residents of the city in the event of another Duplon attack.

 

Unikitty has a new look – and she can even transform at will.

We already know that Unikitty is the epitome of good vibes and happy feelings. It’s therefore interesting to note that even with the apparent destruction of Cloud Cuckoo Land in the first LEGO Movie film, such catastrophic destruction of her kingdom did not forced her to go through a metamorphosis in such a way that we now see her in the person of Ultrakatty. When the first sets from TLM2 were revealed last July, most LEGO fans assumed that Unikitty simply grew up to become what she is now, like she suddenly had a growth spurt of sorts. However, as we can see from the trailer, she can transform herself at will to become a fierce-looking battle cat whenever needed. The first LEGO Movie clearly established that Unikitty’s moods can alter her appearance, and now her capability to completely transform to a battle-ready feline is perhaps another step to her abilities.

 

MetalBeard also gets a couple of battle-ready builds.

This is no longer a secret, considering the recent reveal of the new TLM2 sets particularly the MetalBeard’s Heavy Metal Motor Trike (70834) and Battle-Ready Batman and MetalBeard (70836). However, we can surely expect to see the dauntless pirate captain suit up additional brick-built gears later on in the film. LEGO is yet to reveal it’s LEGO Movie 2 D2C set which we hope to see another version of MetalBeard later on.

 

Where on earth did Rex Dangervest came from?

The first LEGO Movie film clearly established how the various LEGO themes (such as those from LEGO City, Superheroes, and Classic Space and Kingdoms), are all somewhat related to each other and has existed within the LEGO Movie world on multiple dimensions. Given this context, it is understandable how the Duplon that invaded the city of Bricksburg came to be. In a similar vein, the existence of the Systar System can also be explained through this “multiple dimension” theme that runs across the film. So it begs the question: from where did our galaxy defending, archaeologist cowboy and raptor wrangler came from?

The trailer did not leave us any answer of Rex Dangervest’s origins since we only see him arriving in the scene where Emmet gets caught up in a nasty asteroid belt. Is he a true friend to our brick heroes, or does he have another agenda of his own? Plus, his mean looking ship gives me the same feeling such as that when I first saw Thanos’ Sanctuary ship in Avengers: Infinity War. It just doesn’t feel right in a sort of way. I guess we just have to wait and see when the film arrives in February.

 

What’s up with Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi?

The official trailer now gives us a close look at the film’s main antagonist, and new character Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi. From the looks of it, the Queen of the Systar System seems to have a lot of explaining to do on why Lucy and the rest of the gang ended up kidnapped by Sweet Mayhem and brought in her kingdom. Watevra Wa’Nabi may look simple and unassuming in the surface, but like any other LEGO build, can offer a lot of possibilities – even change to a mean, scary looking brick monster that even makes Batman cringe.

So what is the story behind Queen Wa’Nabi and her kingdom, and what is her ultimate goal? We’ll soon find out.

 

The Systar System is like a brick fantasy world.

Sweet Mayhem’s single overarching goal is to capture Bricksburg’s fiercest leader for no apparent reason yet, except to bring them to the Systar System at the end of their known brick universe. What is puzzling right here is the very nature of the Systar System itself. From what we saw from the trailer, it is somewhat like a dream land where all the previous places and builds that our protagonists have previously known and loved can be found. We saw a goofy and dreamy looking Superman and the rest of the Justice League. We also see a semblance of Cloud Cuckoo Land at one point in the trailer where we find Unikitty enjoying herself, with the rest of her kind. And with the reveal of the Benny’s Space Squad (70841) set where good ‘ol Benny gets to see some of his Classic Space pals, it further strengthens the notion that the Systar System is like a place where minifigure dreams can come true. So what kind of place exactly is the Systar System and what dangers or opportunities will it bring to our heroes?

 

So… what happened to the Man Up Stairs?

The LEGO Movie introduced us to its own version of breaking the fourth wall when Emmet traveled through dimensions to eventually meet the Man Up Stairs. As Emmet soon realized, everything that he knew about his brick-built world is created by the Man Up Stairs and his children. As you may recall, these live characters represent two extreme school of thoughts within the LEGO building spectrum: the fixed and permanent builds characterized by the father; and the adventurous, experimental builds as symbolized by his son. These seemingly opposite school of thoughts in LEGO building were soon reconciled when the father realized the value of the LEGO brick for creative play and expression. He relaxed some of his ‘rules’ in playing with LEGO bricks, allowing his son and daughter to play in their LEGO hobby room.

Now given that five years have passed since then, and the yet to be revealed daughter of the Man Up Stairs may have outgrown her toddler years of playing with Duplo bricks, could it be that she is now introduced to minidolls as her next LEGO set? If that is the case, then that will somehow explain the presence of the minidolls in their LEGO universe, mixed with several 4+ and Duplo sets. My best guess is that the Man Up Stairs may no longer be actively involved in the movie, but instead it’s his children that now play a major role in the events of The LEGO Movie 2. Well, it’s a fan theory so I will have to wait until February if my theory will hold or not.

We still have less than 3 months to see how The LEGO Movie 2 will turn out, and like its predecessor, we can be sure that it will be filled with all manners of twists and turns that will appeal to all LEGO fans regardless of age. And similar to the first film, we can expect that it will touch on themes like fostering creativity and letting go of expectations to welcome new and endless possibilities.

So do you have any particular question in mind about The LEGO Movie 2? Let us know in the comments section below and let’s talk about it.

New The LEGO Movie 2 Sets Revealed!

Everything is becoming more awesome, especially right after the official trailer of The LEGO Movie 2 has just dropped over the Internet. And finally, we now have official images of nineteen – yes, 19 – new The LEGO Movie 2 sets known so far.

We first had a sampling of things to come with regards to these TLM2 tie-in sets when the first three of them were revealed just in time for the San Diego Comic Con last July. This time around, we can now clearly see how the LEGO designers in Billund explored and stretched the possibility of LEGO’s full range of sets, combining them in one sandbox of a theme. It’s like creative play in action and the outcome can never be more awesome!

I’m looking forward to most of these sets already: we have now have an idea where to find that new teal brick separator (if you’re the completionist type), and I can just imagine how many AFOLs will love to have their hands on that new line of space minifigures. And as expected, LEGO is definitely pushing forward for a more noticeable developmental approach in offering their sets, with a new 4+ and Duplo set included in the theme.

We’ll, enough of my comments. Let’s just feast our eyes on these new The LEGO Movie 2 sets which will be available to the public starting December 26, 2018.

First Look at the LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Builder Box (70832) and Lucy’s Builder Box (70833)

After spotting the names of some new, and upcoming LEGO Movie 2 sets over at a Polish online retailer website, we now have a first look at two additional tie-in sets: the LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Builder Box (70832) and Lucy’s Builder Box (70833). These new sets were spotted over at eBay by Minifigure Price Guide, with both sets featuring a nifty toolbox design.

The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Builder Box (70832) comes in at 125 pieces and allows you to create multiple minibuilds such as a facade of Emmet’s home, a bulldozer and a mini-version of Emmet’s Construct-o-Mech (70814) from the first LEGO Movie. The set also includes an Emmet minifigure and a Duplon figure made up of Duplo bricks.

Lucy’s Builder Box (70833) on the other hand features Lucy and Unikitty, and several mini builds as well. It includes a mini concert stage, a motorbike and ramp, and somewhat of a play area for Unikitty. This set comes in 141 pieces and as mentioned, includes a new Lucy minifigure and the usual brick-built figure of Unikitty.

Since these images have already popped-up on eBay and are now being sold over at the secondary market, we can somehow expect that other LEGO Movie 2 sets might already be out there particularly with other retailers. We can also expect that more info (and hopefully more official images) will come in towards the end of the year especially by January. LEGO has already revved up promotions with the reveal of additional characters like Rex Dangervest (voiced also by Chris Pratt) and the brick-built Watevra Wa’nabi (voiced by Tiffany Haddish). The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is slated to hit US theaters on February 8, 2019.

 

LEGO Movie 2 Character Posters Released Online

The LEGO Movie 2 official social media channels have uploaded a nice collection of character posters to speed up marketing efforts for the sequel. After actor Chris Pratt (the voice behind Emmet) revealed the physical minifigure counterpart of Rex Dangervest and announcing the scheduled live stream of the film’s next big trailer, we now have our first wave of LEGO Movie 2 character posters that gives us a glimpse on some of the new personalities that will grace the sequel.

Take a look at the following posters of some of the returning, and new characters of The LEGO Movie 2 such as Rex Dangervest and Queen Watevra Wa’nabi. My only complaint is that Benny is seriously missing out from the limelight. He is rumored to have a new robotic arm by the way, so probably LEGO is still putting a tight lid on these new developments. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is slated to hit US theaters on February 8, 2019.

 

Chris Pratt Reveals New LEGO Rex Dangervest Minifigure

It looks like the LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is getting a marketing boost now that we’re just a couple of months away from the film’s debut. After the reveal of more additional names in the LEGO Movie 2 tie-in repertoire, we now have actor Chris Pratt taking a hand (pun intended) in revealing the new LEGO Rex Dangervest minifigure.

Shared via social media, Chris gave us a glimpse on one of the first physical minifigure that will accompany Emmet, Lucy and the rest of the Bricksburg gang. In his usual comic antic, he also revealed that a new LEGO Movie 2 trailer will be streamed over the Internet tomorrow Tuesday at 11AM (EST). The LEGO Movie 2’s official Facebook page has also set a reminder for its next big trailer, so you may want to turn on your notifications for that.


What do you think about this new LEGO Rex Dangervest minifigure? What new adventures will this newest character bring in the lives of our brick heroes? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

 

A Closer Look at the New Wasteland Batman Minifigure from the LEGO Movie 2

It looks like LEGO is revving up its marketing for its next big film The LEGO Movie 2 as we inch closer towards the end of the year. After a month of inactivity, the film’s social media channels are now up and running again with several teasers that they posted during the past three days. Other than the usual roster of characters such as WyldStyle and Emmet who were prominently shown in the film’s official trailer, we still need to see more details on some of the movie’s prominent characters. Earlier in September, you may recall that LEGO gave us our first look at Batman’s Apocalypseburg swag with the new Wasteland Batman minifigure. This new rendition of Batman is definitely impressive, giving a sort of Mad Max vibe to the Dark Knight’s usual garb.

Thanks to two most recent posts from the LEGO Movie 2’s official Twitter page, we can now have a closer look at the Wasteland Batman minifigure, and some of the hidden features of this much-awaited minifig. Check the following post below.

And just in time for Halloween, LEGO seems to be giving us more hints on this new Batman costume. What is particularly interesting is the new torso print beneath the rugged, wasteland look as can be seen from the film’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) greetings.

Staying true with the film’s apocalyptic version of Bricksburg, other than the rugged new armor, the new Wasteland Batman minifigure also comes with a worn-out sleeveless shirt underneath secured by a brown body strap across his torso. It also looks like that this new minifig rendition comes with arm prints that resemble arm or elbow guards.

If this on-screen version of Batman turns out to be a physical minifigure, then I will not be surprised to see that this is perhaps one of the best minifigure versions of Batman in recent years. And if LEGO intends to create this air of exclusivity for the Wasteland Batman minifigure, then it will not be a wild guess to consider that LEGO might opt to include this in just one particular set. With 15 or more LEGO Movie 2 sets to be revealed on top of the first wave of sets shown last July, I am particularly excited to see what set the Wasteland Batman minifigure will be included.

What do you think about this latest LEGO version of Batman? Do you think it is worthwhile to add another space for the Wasteland Batman in your minifigure collection? Let us know in the comments below.

First Look at Rex Dangervest from The LEGO Movie 2

More details are coming in about The LEGO Movie 2 as we enter the last quarter of the year. Thanks to Amazon UK, we are now introduced to one of the new minifigure characters of the franchise. A new LEGO Movie 2 tie-in book entitled Little Library has just been listed via Amazon’s UK portal, and we have a first look at our new LEGO character, Rex Dangervest.

Rex Dangervest

Rex joins Lucy, Emmet, Unikitty and the rest of the gang as a cool archaeologist off in a mission to save the world. Based on his rugged look, I say that he might be the film’s smart, cool guy – a sort of an alter ego for the always optimistic, but hopelessly naive Emmet Brickowski.

It will be interesting to hear a conversation between Rex and Emmet considering that both of them are voiced by none other than Chris Pratt. It’s also reasonable to assume that we will see Rex Dangervest included in one of the fifteen (15) or so LEGO Movie 2 sets said to be revealed by next year. For the record, we already have our first wave of set reveals from The LEGO Movie  2 theme which were announced just in time for the San Diego Comic Con. There’s also a LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigure Series rumored to be released by February next year in line with the film, so that’s something to watch out for as well.

Here’s a quick rundown of the book’s description courtesy of Amazon UK.
