Everything is awesome! This is a massive original D2C set ever which stayed true to the movie setting.

Wow! Stunning set and really well done by Lego. Unfortunately not in my wheelhouse so I won't be getting it. I don't want it, but I want to want it. If Lego reads these boards, however, know that it is an impressive model. Good job.

I will have to Bricklink Green Lantern and Harley.

Harley is a figbait!  :wub:

Fully agreed! :wub: 

Rendition is similar to the design in Suicide Squad movie in 2016.

Since it's very akin to the Ninjago City D2C, I do hope to see these "skyline" representations of cinematic Lego cities continue on as a trend for future Lego Movies from Warner Brothers. I mean, imagine if Lego had done the same back in 2014 and 2017 for The Lego Movie's Bricksburg or The Lego Batman Movie's Gotham City! :purrr:

Is it me or the torso looks silver instead of yellow? Or is it an armour?

The silver is meant to match the armour. It looks a bit odd as the sides of the figure are black to depict the curves and hips so there is a break between the part and the print, whereas if this was a male figure then the silver would be more continuous.

In a strange way I am happy I am not doing the review. Now I can simply relax and enjoy the build. I feel sorry for you @Ecclesiastes :tongue:

Great looking set... definitely a day one purchase for me!! Love all the pipework and the ramshackle appearance and the minifigs are great (love the Mad Max vibe with Bad Cop!!) The only thing that slightly bugs me is the Statue of Liberty which makes it a bit harder to use it as a generic post-apocalyptic settlement but I'm sure I'll cope!! :wink:

I really hope this isn't what we're getting in the place of a Ninjago City add-on.   It's not very appealing  to me in that you can't really expand onto it linearly, which I derive a lot of fun from.  It feels more like a discrete 3D sculpture commemorating TLM2.

 

The minifigures are great though

Yep, I've understood the print now. It's like a corset simulating the abdominals, ala Immortan Joe.

It's so awesome! The amount of details put into this set is incredible! When I first saw the box image, I thought the Statue of Liberty's face look a little weird, and it still does look weird on the box art, but when shown from a distance, it actually works really well. :drool:

It looks fantastic!

My favorite part so far is the little print shop.  Also, the Batman minifigure is awesome.
