LEGO Movie 2 LEGO sets are a great way of finding builds that many of us could never imagine. The weird, chaotic world of Apocalypseburg is the subject of this new set and promises collectors an exciting, complex build. Players can explore the different hide-outs and buildings, as well as the heights of what remains of the Statue of Liberty. There is also the chance to recreate lots of great scenes, and concoct new ones, with a range of mini figures. Batman, Harley Quinn and Green Lantern join Emmet, Lucy and more.
There are lots of different areas to this build, all with their own features and weird characteristics.
The standout feature in this Welcome to Apocalypseburg build is the Statue of Liberty – or what remains of her. The scrap elements of the stature and her torch stick out from the building, ready to explore. The head opens up to reveal a look-out with a telescope where the gang can keep an eye out for trouble.
Down below, there are different hide-outs and businesses that may be of help. The Coffee Unchained cafe is surprisingly well equipped for the post-apocalypse. There are even parasols on the tables outside. The tattoo parlor/barber is also open for business, as is Fuse’s workshop. Elsewhere, there is a hide-out for Lucy, and office for Scribble Cop, an armory and more. Each area has features and accessories to help the group on their mission. Some are great tools for the business, some are weapons for battle and many can double up as both. Players can spend time plotting missions, waging battle or just chilling out in the spa or coffee shop.
The beauty of this LEGO 16+ set is that it offers a challenge for builders and fans of the movies
The design of this Apocalypseburg region looks a little like it was thrown together from old parts in a haphazard manner. This look, with the wonky walls, weird additions and eclectic use of bricks is deceiving. Builders may assume that this a simple construction, but there is great attention to detail in the placement of the hide-outs, the design of the leaning Statue of Liberty and the little details in the exterior. There are 3178 pieces in total, from the street signs and building interior features, to the new barbed wire. Once complete, fans of the LEGO movies will have a “realistic” piece of Apocalypseburg to call their own.
