Now that the first wave of the LEGO Movie 2 sets have been released out into the wild, we’ve finally gotten our first official glimpse of the new LEGO Movie 2 Minifigures Series, featuring a stacked cast of 20 characters!
As is the norm with LEGO Movie tie-in collectible minifigure series, there will be 20 characters to collect in total.
The release date for The LEGO Movie 2 minifigures is 1 February 2019.
My recommendation is to purchase complete sets outright as it just saves you time hunting them down. You can usually find complete sets on Amazon or your local specialty LEGO retailer who will most likely sell complete sets.
Here’s the full list of unofficial names and a character checklist above.
The box breakdown and distribution is super simple this time around – there will be 3 complete sets of LEGO Movie 2 Minifigures in each box, which makes it 3 of each character. None of that rare “chase” minifigure nonsense this time around.
- DJ Emmet
- Apocalypseburg Lucy
- Apocalypseburg Benny
- Gone Golfin’s President Business
- Flashback Lucy
- Vest Friend Rex
- Sherry Scratchen-post and Scarfield
- Dorothy Gale and Toto
- Cowardly Lion
- Tin Man
- Apocalypseburg Abe
- Crayon Girl
- Giraffe Guy
- Swamp Creature
- Candy Rapper
- Watermelon Dude
- Hula Lula
- Kitty Pop
What’s new for this series are the new white base plates which look great. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like there’s any printing on them which is a bit of a bummer! A LEGO Movie 2 logo printed on them would’ve been sweet.
Outside of the main characters like Emmet, Lucy, Benny, President Business, Unikitty (who’s snuck her way into being categorised as a minifig!), Rex Dangervest, we’re also getting all the main characters from the Wizard of Oz, which is a bit of a surprise!
Here’s a look at the box of 60 blind bags.
Here’s a look at the individual blind bags. You’ll notice that the shape has changed slightly, and they’re a little taller than previous versions.
Its design follows the Unikitty Collectible Series, which means there’s a bag within a bag, which may make it slightly trickier to feel for the minifigs.
For fans of the classic movie, you’ll be pleased that the series contains Dorothy (with her trademark ruby slippers and Toto!), the Tin Man, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion!
Rounding out the cast is a huge cast of costumed characters – I’m really looking forward to Watermelon Dude, Giraffe Guy (looks like an homage to Geoffrey the Toys R Us Giraffe. RIP) and Crayon Suit Girl.
There are also some inhabitants of Apocalypseburg, who are all tricked out for life in an apocalyptic wasteland, which have also appeared in the first LEGO Movie such as the Swamp Creature, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and the Sherry Scratchen-Post with her cat, Scarfield which now sports an epic mohawk.
This looks like it has all the elements of an amazing series, and as a massive fan of LEGO Minifigures, I absolutely cannot wait for these!
Only time will tell what the box breakdown and distribution of these minifigures will be. I just hope that LEGO stops the silly practice from Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts and Series 18 where they introduced a super-rare, one per box chase minifigure.
