Feng-huang0296 posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesWell, the first poster for The Lego Movie 2 has officially been unveiled. Now, it could be just me, but those proportions don't look look like that of a minifigure. They seem far more reminiscent of a mini-doll. I'm also noticing that several of the main characters are getting appearance changes - Wyldstyle has new goggles molded into her hair, as well as what looks like a scarf and bow combination, while Batman has shoulder pads that look like they're made out of car wheels, and . . I have no idea what's going on with Unikitty. Also, Metalbeard look so like he's completely differently built; more streamlined and less bulky, so that'll be cool to see. I hear we're getting our first trailer tomorrow. Hopefully we'll find out whether mini-dolls are indeed the antagonists then.
I've recently acquired the SDCC-exclusive Apocalypseburg Unikitty for a comparatively reasonable price on bricklink and decided to post a short review on here since apparently there hasn't been one up to now (search function please don't fail me now!). Usually, I just skip the SDCC exclusive minifigs as most sensible people do (one day, they'll all be MINE though). The only current exception are the movie related ones, I simply lack the force of will to resist those Luckily, they're on the "cheap" end of the SDCC exclusives most of the time... Without further ado, let's take a look at the packaging: As with the SDCC Unikitty from 2014, the parts are neatly sealed in a bag that for some reason doesn't contain any replacement parts (not that I'd need those, they'd be as common as angry comments in a random youtube video's comment section ). Speaking of angry: I dig the artwork on the back of the packaging even though a lot of the space is taken up by the copyright and trademark info. It has to on there somewhere, I guess, or the IP owners might get really upset I think it's also quite humorous how the packaging refers to the two facial expressions as "angry" and "rage". Quite fitting though, as shall be revealed... Those are some angry facial expressions, alright. If you thought previous versions were angry, you haven't seen these Looks almost like me whenever of my cats "helps" me with assembling a LEGO set or whenever I open the latest newspaper The "set" if you can call it that (technically, you can?) didn't include any instructions, but I managed to build it nonetheless, haven't felt so proud of myself in a long time </obviously obvious sarcasm>. The build was like any version of Unikitty except for the not-so-subtle arrow on the side which is attached with a bracket and a modified 1x1 plate (both in reddish brown). As was discussed in the LEGO Movie 2 thread back when the figure was first revealed, the neck is still attached the old way instead of how it's done in the Unikitty! sets. No big issue though, it's not like you would ever in a billion years let a kid play with this... which gets sadder the more I think about that. On a angrier happier note, the new spiked tail piece looks superb and is very neatly printed, can't wait to see if it gets used in similar creative fashions as the first one was. In order to show off compare the two SDCC Unikitty versions, I also took a shot of them next to one another: And finally, here's a picture of the whole happy angry family: In conclusion, I really appreciate this version of Unikitty with its unique prints and the new spiked tail which will surely make at least one if not multiple appearances in the LEGO Movie 2 sets. Too bad this is an exclusive since these two expressions are really cool to have and I can't imagine the other expressions included in the set version(s) being as good as these. Let's hope I'm wrong... or get angry
Transparency for Effect posted a topic in Special LEGO Themeshttp://www.huffingto..._n_5124829.html Great news! It really pleases me to hear they're addressing could-be-better representation of women the first movie arguably had. :3 So, just for fun, what pre-existing LEGO characters would you like to see in the next LEGO Movie? Here are some of my ideas: (More of) Wonder Woman Fabuland Representatives (like Bonnie Bunny, it'll be funny to see whether they 'count' or not) Ann Lee and the Vampyre/Zombie Brides from Monster Fighters CM's Cheerleader and the (for some reason controversial?) Female Scientist Simpsons Representatives Have fun!
