For The LEGO Movie, there were a whole mess of one-off minifig polybag promos. I can’t even begin to remember what all the methods one had to go through to get them all and I’m not even sure how to look up all that information. Today’s polybag, 5002203 Radio DJ Robot, is one such minifig promo.
According to the internet, this was a pre-order exclusive for The LEGO Movie Video Game. I don’t own a copy of the game so it must have found its way into my collection by the good graces of a former GameStop employee.
Radio DJ Robot probably had a very short cameo in the film. So short in fact that I couldn’t even begin to guess which part of the movie it came from. First half, back half, yeah I have no idea. Can you sense a theme here?
Despite my apathy towards this polybag and its origins, it’s still a nice little minifig. Just check out that torso print! The torso and leg elements feature unique prints which makes this minifig unique. And unlike the recent Star Wars minifigs we’ve reviewed, this one doesn’t make me want to throw it in the trash. The name is a bit questionable. Nothing about this invokes any sense that it’s a radio dj. Radio DJ’s tend to be older folks that look like they’re trying too hard to be young and relevant. He strikes me more as a disgruntled gen z-er.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set rocks! Sure, it’s a unique minifigure of an obscure character that had just scant seconds of screen time. Where have we experienced this before?
There’s no sponsor this week, and with sponsorships lasting a whole week, you can get plenty of exposure for mere pennies. Pennies I say! Want to sponsor a review? Send me a message to email@example.com or hit me up on discord of the polybag set you have that you want me to review. If selected, in exchange for the set you’ll get a mention right here in the review post and a link to your website or social media account or just about anything else.. Nearly free advertising, so what’s stopping you?
You Can Win This And Every Other Polybag I Review This Year
I’ll be raffling every polybag I review this year in one big lot, all 260 sets (with the possibility of more). Each set will be individually stored in a ziploc baggie complete with the extra pieces, instructions, and the actual polybag bag it came in. The cost of a raffle ticket is just $1 USD and you can enter as many times as you want. Send a PayPal payment to firstname.lastname@example.org for $1 USD for every ticket you want to purchase. DO NOT send one payment for multiple entries i.e. do not send one $5 USD payment for five tickets; five $1 USD payments must be made instead. Raffle is open to everyone in the world except where raffles are illegal. Be sure to put “POLYBAG RAFFLE” in the notes section of the payment in order to be entered successfully. Winner will be drawn sometime early January 2023 and contacted at the PayPal email address the payment was sent from to arrange for delivery.
