Just in case you weren’t already stoked to see The Lego Movie (and if you aren’t… what’s wrong with you?), Lego went and released a trailer that should just make your Friday. My personal highlight was “Ha! First Try” after a batarang throw… what was yours?

Well, that was quite a wave of reviews, now wasn’t it? It’s certainly was a record for the reviews on the site… probably more we do in a few months. I know that I certainly never want to see another Emmet minifig (let alone the six or so that come in a box) as long as I live (or until I buy the rest of the sets in the line, whatever comes first). I think it’s safe to say that everyone who had sets to review on staff are now officially excited for The LEGO Movie. Of course, once it’s out, we’re going to review it, but it will be interesting to see how this amazing exercise in marketing brilliance plays out.
We missed a couple of reviews, compliments of the Canadian postal service and/or U.S. Customs service, but they’ll be up early next week just as soon as they get past the polar bears or what not that are slowing them up. Anyway, here are all the reviews we have available for the sets that dropped today! Stay tuned as we finish up the remaining sets in the next few days.
Many thanks to LEGO for providing the sets for review.

Forum member Gooker1 emailed me today these set of pictures showing promotional megafigures for The LEGO Movie found at his local AMC theaters. I’m sure everyone’s drooling over Batman, but I’d take that Wyldstyle in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, they will eventually go back to the studio. What happens to them after that will be a mystery. I’m sure though that they will end up in the hands of a lucky duck or two.
Hoth Bricks posted this image of the next CMF series which will be based on The LEGO Movie and I have to admit it looks like a lot of fun. They list the names as: Calamity Drone, Gail the Construction Worker, Abraham Lincoln, Larry the Barista, Panda Guy, Mrs. Scratchen-Post, William Shakespeare, Taco Tuesday Guy, “Where are my Pants?” Guy, Wiley Fusebot, President Business, Wild West Wyldstyle, Hard Hat Emmet, Scribbe-Face Bad Cop, Velma Staplebot and Marsha Queen of the Mermaids.
I personally can’t wait for Lincoln, Shakespeare, Panda Guy, the Liquid Terminator and everyone else.
Also, Yahoo Movies unveiled the above set in an exclusive peek last night of the Cloud Cuckoo Palace set featuring a character called Uni-Kitty (voiced by the adorable Alison Brie) and a set so colourful it should rival the Friends sets on the shelves for eye burning rainbow appeal. They report the set should cost $20, so I can see multiples being picked up quickly… by me.
Thanks to chat troll murphquake for rattling the bars of his cage and waking me up.
I was a little ticked at Warner Brothers this week after the news they were pulling DC Comics out of NYC and relocating them to Burbank CA, presumably to be able to hang out on the set of The Price Is Right, but all is forgiven now. The film is due February 7th, 2014. Just in time for Valentines Day, in case you were trying to come up with the absolute perfect date.
Bask in the glory of this new trailer for The LEGO Movie and see that it is indeed full of win!
Thanks for the heads up ninnymuggins. Again.
USA Today posted an in-depth article on The LEGO Movie. The article has a slideshow component that breaks down most of the major characters in the movie, who voices them, and their individual motivations. Not many details are given away in terms of plot line, but we do learn that Will Ferrel’s character, President Business, has an alter ego, Lord Business, who is trying to control the world. Master Builders Wyldstyle, voiced by Elizabeth Banks, and Vitruvius, voiced by Morgan Freeman, believe that a very normal construction worker, Emmet, voiced by Chris Pratt, is “The Special”, the key to saving the world from Lord Business.
The LEGO Movie opens in theaters on February 7, 2014.
Thanks to ninnymuggins for the heads up.
Once again we compile all of the LEGO related events happening at Comic Con. In addition to whatever LEGO has going on in their booth, and there will be a lot, there are a few additional items of interest to catch. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be an LEGO Star Wars-themed panels this year. And with that, on to the list.
On the eve of the San Diego Comic Con comes this image from Warner Bros. of an exclusive poster of the upcoming film The LEGO Movie, reports Superhero Hype. No word yet on how to obtain the poster and I’m not familiar how Warner Bros. distributes their posters. Based on how other booths distribute these sorts of things, it may be a timed event meaning there will be a daily schedule posted when you can swing by, get in line, and pick up a freebie. Or, they could do it randomly like other booths and you’ll just have to be there at the right time. Whatever the case may be, if we end up finding out information on how to get a poster, we’ll make a post about it here.
