Theme Guide: The Lego Movie (2015)

I'm glad to see that 2015 will continue to deliver sets based on The Lego Movie, as the film still has lots of potential for sets - They could mine it for eternity considering how many Lego models there were within it! The three sets coming in the winter wave are all quite small scale, ideal ways to collect the main characters if the larger sets in the second wave of 2014 sets are a little too pricey for you.

Continue below for a look at each set. (Images first revealed by Youtuber just2good):

70818 Double Decker Couch
  • One of the most iconic designs in The Lego Movie - Ok, that might be overstating it, but the double-decker couch is certainly memorable. I'd have loved an all-clear version from the Emmet mind-meld scene, but any version is pleasing. This has already appeared in the much larger 70810 Metal Beard's Sea Cow, so this is the more accessible version, this time coupled with Emmet's car and a jumble of characters from the film, including ghost Vitruvius!

70819 Bad Cop Car Chase
  • A perfect companion to 70808 Super Cycle Chase, we get a police car and bike, plus a chair for Bad Cop to kick! While the bike design is quite unorthodox, this set feels a bit ordinary to me, if not for the robots it could be any other City police set.

70817 Batman and Super Angry Kitty Attack
  • This set definitely feels like its functioning purely as a way to collect all the main characters (along with the other two sets here) relatively inexpensively. There are at least ten other Micro-managers across the existing The Lego Movie range, so this is a bit dull as the center-piece. What is more exciting is that great Super Angry Kitty printing!
