One of the best things to come out of The LEGO Movie are the various different head prints for Emmet. They are comicly expressive on a level not seen in LEGO before nor after. Minifigure heads always held the line of simplicity and efficiency. But these Emmet heads fully lean in on being cartoony. Today’s set, 5002045 Pyjamas Emmet, is a perfect example of this.
Seen at the beginning of the first movie, what we have here is Emmet in his pyjamas, just waking up and starting his day. The head is double-sided and the side you see on the bag has Emmet winking. Well, it may not be a wink but him just trying to open his eyes from a long night’s sleep.
The other side of the head is a full on, wide-mouthed yawn. Just look at the size of that pie hole! It could also serve double duty as a face that is strenuously yelling. In any case, it is just great. The mouth takes up more than half the surface area of the face!
The rest of the fig isn’t all the unique but rather difficult to come by at this point. The pyjama torso and legs were also seen in a Collectible Minifigure Series 6 minifigure, Sleepyhead. And those are some pretty sweet pieces featuring printing on the arms and the sides of the legs. Just awesome.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set rocks! A simple promotional figure that has one exclusive part. That may or may not be irksome, depending on how you feel about rare minifig parts. Some fans may cry foul due to only being through a newspaper promotion in one specific country. I dig it though.

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.
