The Lego Movie 2 is about to be released in cinemas. The film once again has heavy script involvement from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, is directed by Mike Mitchell and stars Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks and Will Arnett.
The movie takes up the story of Bricksburg five years after the original – a new threat sees Lego Duplo invaders from space (crossing the themes, there) destroying the city. Naturally, our heroes need to restore balance to the Lego universe!
Lego released the first sets from the second dose of The Lego Movie at the end of last year since which it’s also announced more sets including the range-topping Welcome to Apocalypeburg And Rex’s Explorer. Rex's Explorer is the only set not out yet.
While those sets are at the more expensive end of things, there are stacks of sets for all ages (yes there’s a Duplo set) and all budgets.
Some of the sets are pretty meaty, while there's also some super retro sets like Benny’s Space Squad below - but, as with any big Lego theme, there are a few less appealing models. However, we haven't seen the film yet and the ones that we (and you) might not be so keen on could be the sets that take up a pivotal role in the movie, you never know...
Here are 10 popular Lego Movie 2 sets ranked in price order from lowest to highest! All available at Amazon UK, click links for current prices and offers.
70841 Benny’s Space Squad, ages 5+, 68 pieces
You can role-play scenes from the movie with this space toy including four 1980s Lego Space-themed astronaut minifigures with assorted accessories. There’s also a spaceship toy with a minifigure seat and a lunar buggy with dual-minifigure seats.
70822 Unikitty’s Sweetest Friends EVER!, ages 5+, 76 pieces
A bit of an add-on set, this one. Enjoy a drink and a snack with this set featuring three buildable figures - Unikitty, Ice Cream Cone and Chocolate Bar. There’s also a tea trolley with teapot, cups and cake.
70823 Emmet’s Thricycle!, ages 7+, 173 pieces
This rather crazy Thricycle features a minifigure seat, three stacked rubber tires and foldout stabilizers. There’s also a mini petrol/gas station with parking spot for the Thricycle, plus an Emmet minifigure and a random brick-built alien invader with a chomping mouth and rotating cyclops eye.
70821 Emmet and Benny’s ‘Build and Fix Workshop’, ages 4+, 117 pieces
Designed for younger builders over four years old, you can fix up Benny’s Spaceship (which, yes, is themed around 1980s Lego Space) and Emmet’s Escape Buggy in the workshop. The set Emmet and Benny minifigures and a bunch of tools to play around with.
70836 Battle-ready Batman and MetalBeard, ages 6+, 168 pieces
This Batman-themed set features pirate MetalBeard in slightly off-putting “crabmech” form, opening treasure chest with MetalBeard’s internal organs (!) and flip-down crow’s nest, on top plus Batman is sitting on what can only be described as a throne. Includes a brick-built Star figure and numerous weapons and accessories.
70824 Introducing Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi, ages 6+, 115 pieces
Here’s Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi in horse form with a rotating platform, plus five interchangeable face expressions for rebuilding the shape-shifting queen. The set also includes a buildable (and rather loveable) Banarnar character, Sweet Mayhem and Susan minidolls (yes, that’s a thing) plus a Lucy minifigure.
10895: Emmet and Lucy’s Visitors from the Duplo Planet, ages 2+, 53 pieces
It’s hard to believe that the Duplo characters are the menaces of the Lego Movie 2, but here we are with a set aimed at toddlers. Naturally the characters are designed so they can mix it all up and create their own characters. Emmet and Lucy are in Duplo figure form, too. Our nearly-two-year-old will be all over this one!
70827 Ultrakatty and Warrior Lucy!, ages 8+, 383 pieces
Another set with a random alien invader, you once again get Lucy and Emmet minifigures. The key part of the set is, of course, Ultrakitty, who comes with three different facial expressions and a posable tail and legs.
70832 Emmet’s Builder Box, ages 5+, 125 pieces
This one comes in a carry case that snaps shut. Seemingly inspired by 1980s Lego Basic sets, you get Emmet and a brick-built alien invader in addition to a digger and rather odd-shaped construction vehicle with demolition balls and bucket. There’s also something described as a house, but it’s probably the worst Lego house we’ve ever seen.
70825 Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi’s Build Whatever Box!, ages 6+, 455 pieces
This set is pretty cool, probably the best for creative minds. You can build and rebuild shape-shifting Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi in 15 different forms. There are instructions to build each version, but of course you can create your own!
