No doubt this has been the week of The LEGO Movie news. And it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon. LEGO Shop@Home is celebrating the release of the movie (and let’s not forget the video game) with a special promo for the month of February polybag set. Get 30280 The Piece of Resistance with any purchase of $50 or more. They really should lower that requirement by a dollar. What if all I wanted to get was The LEGO Movie Videogame for the Wii U? Or 70802 Bad Cop’s Pursuit and 70803 Cloud Cuckoo Palace? I would be pennies short from getting the promo set. Tsk tsk, LEGO! Free shipping if your order hits $75 or more. And VIP points. And, and… I think that’s it. Deal is good from now until February 28th or while supplies last.

While 70805 Trash Chomper was the set I knew I just absolutely had to have when I first saw the alt-builds, 70803 Cloud Cuckoo Palace was the set I wanted based on the box images alone. I couldn’t even really tell you why, honestly, other than the fact mixing insane colors, a Candy Land vide, and a Lego snail is just a quick way to get my money. I mean, how can look at that thing and not smile, thinking about Gum Drop Mountain.
Oh, and also there’s a unicorn kitten, which I assume is just what pulled the strings and controlled the unicorn dogs from Star Trek. And a snail, which some people eat and the rest of us kill on site (especially if they’re those nasty invasive species ones). And of course Emmet, but we also get Wyldstyle and a robot, because we get robots in pretty much every set.
At $20, this set is downright budget for the color mix you get. A good portion of the colors have only been available in Friends sets previously, so you can stock up if you’ve been avoiding those for some reason. Of course, if you’ve been avoiding them, you’re kinda crazy… the Friends line has been a great source of unique stuff. Anyway… on to the review!
