Hi all, when I saw new The LEGO Movie 2 sets I fell in love with Ultrakatty set 70827 and began thinking about what else I can build out of this set. The first idea was to build Ultrapuppy but I was not able to give it cool enough appearance and personality. Then I got another idea that excited me much: What about giving Emmet and Lucy real alien that would fight with those Duplo monsters? ...and it should be the coolest alien of all - alien queen! "Who is cooler alien now?" I tried to build her as close to original as possible with limited sort of parts in set so I added such details as second jaw, big collar behind head and many thorns on back and tail. I also had to forfeit some details like the second pair of hands on chest and use pretty "wild" color scheme. Finished model features good articulation and big feet gives it some stability. I hope you like it. Any comments are welcome.
Hi guys. As you know TLM2 is within our reach in 2019, there's some time for us to guess what references would like to be used. As we knwo from TLM1, there were quite many references used, especially in the "master builder" when many major LEGO themes representives showed up. There's a very high chance for the same thing going on again, but it's not like LEGO/Warnerbros would always be obedient to what fans want. (for example, the famous Disney-owned media case, we all know that), so I start this topic to check if each franchise has the chance to be in TLM2 or not. *References can be anything, the bigger one is of course having a character figure appear, the smaller one include buildings, world map, scenes, or even just lines. *This topic is mainly activated before TLM2 officially released and all referenced are digged out. *All franchises from TLM1 are all considered available options of references in TLM2, despite I personally wish to see new ones instead. Category 1: franchises between TLM1 and TLM2 Which weren't able to make it into TLM1 so they might be starred in the first place. UniKitty Oh well, the direct spinoff of TLM featuring the very lovely UniKitty! Honestly it seems not very necessary to show all other characters beside UniKitty if she is already the representive from that franchise. But it wouldn't be bad to give Puppycorn and the others in some footage when Emmet and others visit the re-built Cloud Cuckoo Land again. Mixels In some aspects of CN cartoon shorts, it's the predecessor of UniKitty series. I think it's fine to have one of the Mixels or use the cubits references, but not quite sure if this discontinued theme has the popularity in marketing? The Batman Movie Similiar with UniKitty, they might not have to highlight TBM either because Batman and other DC heroes have been featured, or the story is possibly in a different canon. But TBM have grabbed lots of fans and it'd be sweet to see Alfred, Dick and Barbara from the TBM canon also show up in TLM2. Elves One of the current long-running LEGO originals, with unique elf characters and world. It'd be nice to show any elf character as a master builder Nexo Knights The other current running LEGO original, despite it's gonna discontinue this year... Scooby-Doo I assume the chance Scooby appearing in TLM2 is 100%. No explaination. Jurassic World Also 100% chance to have Owen in TLM2 considerin how big this franchise is to WB. Minecraft I think it'd make it in. Especially wowing audience by literally throwing Emmet into the Minecraft worlds and making him chase by the zombies, that'd be fun. Team DFB Well, not sure, Perhaps these guys will take O'Neal's place to star in TLM2? The Angry Birds Movie I'm not sure about this one as well (or should say I'm not sure how is WB doing with Rovio). ABM is gonna have sequel in the same time, but if we're not having ABM2 sets then, would that mean also no any bird in TLM2 as well? LEGO Ideas exclusive franchises Including Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, The Big Bang Theory, The Beatles, NASA ladies All inroduced from LEGO Ideas, but Ideas franchises remain unknown. It'd be stated later. LEGO Dimensions exclusive franchises Including Sonic the Hedgehod, Gizmo, Jake, Betelgeuse... etc. Given that this film has the be closely based on physical figures, the other in-game characters might not be in the movie unless the sets have them. I'm neutral to see them in the film but the regular themes should still be prior IMO. Powerpuff Girls One of the extended franchise from the LEGO Dimensions, it'd make sense for them to be in as CN's main representives. Category 2: past franchises before TLM1 Franchises which didn't make it into TLM1 for unknown reasons. Back to the Future If not counting the original Minecraft building set, this is the very first minifigure-scale LEGO Ideas licensed franchise. However, for unknown reason Marty and Doc didn't make it into TLM1. Despite without any other official regular set, the characters still returned in LEGO Dimensions and this proves it is still an active LEGO license. So, if BttF finally get included in TLM2 canon for this time, the other later LEGO Ideas franchise might all have the chance as well? Friends Currently the second longrunning LEGO original franchise behind Ninjago, which just faced a new reboot this year. It was in the third year when TLM1 was introduced, but they were not really presented in this film (only cited in the world map as a small reference). But now given how notable this franchise it nowaday, any of the Friends should really be in the TLM2 cameo this time. BIONICLE / Hero Fcatory Similiar with Friends, it onlt got small reference from the world map. But it also face huge issue of not quite fitting in the minifigre-scale world as buildable figure toyline, it's even more cruel for being discontinued once again before TLM2 comes. But as an important page of the LEGO history, I still wish that LEGO at least make another reference in TLM2 for this time. Belville Duh... I dunno, like BIONICLE, maybe just a small reference is enough. Time Cruisers / Island Xtreme Stunts Since Johnny had made apperance in TLM1, I would suggest these two historical franchises gets footage in TLM2 for this time, and it'd be sweet if Pepper Roni or Dr. Cyber gets some redesign in physical LEGO sets. CITY Undercover Okay, since Chase McCain has made it into LEGO Dimensions, hopefully also in TLM2 as well. LEGO Universe / Clutch Powers It might just be my personal wish, but I do think LEGO still owe these two franchises a footage since they were suppsoed to be the origins of LEGO crossover projects despite being only in LEGO non-physical media works. Category 3: rumored future franchise after TLM2 Like how they inserted Milhouse in TLM1, it'd be predicable to have another one this time. Overwatch Okay, this is new, I wouldn't be too surprised to see Tracer hop in and steal Wyldstyle's glamor. Here's my personal prediction Main cameos: Unikitty, The Batman Movie, Nexo, Jurassic, MInecraft, Powerpuff Girls Small references / not quite sure: Friends, Elves, Mixels, BTTF, Team DFB What do you guys think? Do you have different ideas about these franchises or you have other unmentinoed options?
This weekend I got my hands on some of the new Lego Movie 2 CMFs. As one of them was the "Apocalypse Abraham Lincoln", I decided to create a post-apocalypse version of his rocket chair from the first movie. I went for a Steampunk theme to go with his new look and for a few hour's work, I think the result's not too bad. I give you The Emancipator Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr I also came up with a little backstory for the pilot... Obviously he's not the real Abe Lincoln, he's actually a former history teacher who, following the DUPLO invasion, found himself living in Apocalypseburg. Like most of the town's citizens, he had heard of the horrors beyond the town's walls; the cat worshipping warrior women, the mutant swamp beasts, the rogue biker gangs and worse (not to mention the DUPLO aliens themselves). Unlike many of the other citizens though, he decided to do something about it. Creating a persona based on the original Abraham Lincoln, he set about bringing freedom to all with the help of his steam powered, lighter than air, balloon chair airship (there's a sentence I never thought I'd type!!). Named The Emancipator it takes him out across the desert wastelands in search of the weak and vulnerable who he guides back the the relative safety of Apocalypseburg. I like to try an imagine how such a craft might actually work and this is what I've come up with!! (complete with dodgy Steampunk pseudo-science!!) Lift comes from spherical balloon filled with lighter than air gas.. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr While the rear mounted steam driven propellor provides forward thrust... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Heat from the firebox (the 2x1 black textured brick) heats the water in the rear most cylinders. The resulting steam is fed into the power unit where it drives a turbine and spins the drive shaft and the prop. The exhaust gases from the fire escape through the chimney while the steam condenses in the forward cylinders for reuse. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr For defence, The Emancipator is equipped with 2 "Faraday Cannons". Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The specially designed glass cylinder collects and stores atmospheric electricity. When needed this can be released as a powerful burst of lightning. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The craft is still a WIP, "Abe" hopes to continue to improve on the design (a larger hot-air version using the exhaust gases to fill the balloon is one idea, he is also looking to fit it with searchlights and enhanced vision equipment to allow it to operate at night) but for now, "Abe" and his craft remain a welcome sight for those pour souls trapped in the wastelands... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr I have to say I really enjoyed this build. Having never built a Steampunk inspired model before it was good fun and we may see more of "Abe" and his adventures!! Thanks for looking - comments are always welcome!!
