Following up on their Number 1 box office debut weekend, The LEGO Group announced three new sets scheduled for an April release. These are marketed as a “call for families to play together”. I kinda got the feeling that the idea for “families to play together” is somehow related to the plot of The LEGO Movie 2’s live action segment… I haven’t seen the movie yet, but that’s just a feeling I get…
The three sets are listed below with an anticipated release date of April 1. Some observations: Emmet’s Mech Couch is a Target exclusive. And I was confused with the Shimmer & Shine set since there is a Nick Jr. cartoon series of the same name. I thought there might have been some strange crossover with Nick Jr. but I’m guessing the name is just a coincidence. I imagine the lawyers at Nickelodeon are taking notice right about now.
