There have been a few times where LEGO has made “versus” sets and have that idea run rampant throughout the theme. Space Police III, Galaxy Squad, and DC Universe Super Heroes are a few examples of this and The LEGO Movie sets are following suit. Normally this means that in a set, you would get a GREAT main model, and then a laughably smaller set so that the good guys can fight the bad guys. I personally can’t stand this approach as I would rather have the element count used for the small model be used to make a better main model. This is true for Space Police III and Galaxy Squad. DC Universe Super Heroes faired a little better, but in the end you still ended up with two medium-sized, mediocre models instead of one really great model in most of those sets.

LEGO has revealed all of The LEGO Movie sets on their Google+ page as well as the microsite. Now that we can see the full gamut of sets, these look to be some of the most fun and creative sets made. Some people have compared them to the parts-dump themes like Time Twisters, but these don’t strike me as being a parts-dump. I don’t have much of an opinion of the flying castle, but the ice cream truck and recycling truck look fantastic. These images also more or less confirm what I suspected all along in that there are alternate model builds for some of the sets.
I’ve included all previous images published before into the gallery below so that you can see everything at once. Enjoy!
LEGO Shop@Home updated their site with some entries for The LEGO Movie sets. There are only five sets listed out of the 11 that we know about. The LEGO Movie sets are part of the January 2014 assortment, but Shop@Home lists each of the sets as “Coming Soon on 29 Dec 2013″. Price and piece count information is listed as well as final box art.

Big thanks to Keith for emailing it in.
LEGO.com has updated their site to include a new section for The LEGO Movie. The section has two subsections, Products and Videos. The video section has both trailers released so far for the movie. The other subsection, “Products”, showcases some of the new Movie-based setss. Two new sets have already been revealed in addition to the previous sets we’ve already seen with the others partially hidden under a cloth. It’s unclear how often the sets will be unveiled, daily or weekly, but if you can’t wait that long, you can view some pictures that Brickipedia has unearthed.
