I’ve been slowly learning about new LEGO sets that will be released in February 2019. All the info you see here is official, meaning that it doesn’t come from a rumor website, or a strange twitter account. If the set appears on the official LEGO website, I use their photos (with credit of course).
Wow, after the blockbuster release of new sets last month (there were over 100). There were so many sets that came out that I had to do two blog posts about it – one of my usual January new sets where I featured the new Overwatch series, and another list of all the 100+ LEGO sets.
Honesty, I didn’t think LEGO had any more new sets to release.
With the upcoming The LEGO Movie 2, coming to the US on Feb, 8, I think LEGO Group wanted to save a few of those themed sets to be launched closer to the movie dropping.
The LEGO Movie 2
I’m so excited for both of these! Welcome to Apocalypseburg! and a LEGO Movie 2 based CMF with 20 new Characters.
Let’s start with the Welcome to Apocalypseburg! set. With 3178 pieces this set is targeted for ages 16+ and in my experience this will be a more advanced set.
Welcome to Apocalypseburg! will have 12 new minifigures based on the movie:
LEGO 71023 LEGO Movie 2 Custom Minifigures
The LEGO Movie 2 Custom Minifigures will be set number 71023, and will consist of 20 new style blind bags where it is going to be harder to “feel” which character is inside.
I don’t know the official names for each of these Minifigures, and will update this post when I learn more.
- President Business
- Rex Dangervest
- the Tin Man
- the Scarecrow
- the Cowardly Lion
- Watermelon Suit Guy
- Giraffe Guy
- Crayon Suit Girl
- Pink Popstar
- Blue Popstar
- Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
- Cat Girl Guitarist
- Hawaiian Singer
- Apocalypseburg Crazy Cat Lady
- Apocalypseburg Swamp Creature
I don’t know how many of each will appear in each “box”. But if it is the usual 60, I hope there will be an even distribution of 3 each. No matter what happens I’ll buy a full box and share what I find with you.
