With general release of The LEGO Movie this weekend, in the UK at least, it would seem like an opportune time to take a look at the three TLM polybags now available: 30280 The Piece of Resistance, 30281 Micro Manager Battle and 30282 Super Secret Police Enforcer.
30280 The Piece of Resistance
This set is currently free with qualifying purchases at LEGOshop.com, until the end of the month. It consists of Emmet in his work overalls and a lump of rock. As seems to be the case with all recent sets featuring 'workmen', it comes with a red mug which must surely teach children that all people do when at work, is sit or stand around drinking cups of tea :-)
The rock is fairly substantial and contains a mechanism for...
...exposing the 'Piece of Resistance', the 1x2x2 brick with a hole in the side that Emmet wears on his back for reasons that no doubt become apparent once you've seen the movie.
The rock contains a nice selection of grey slopes in just about every available angle.
30281 Micro Manager Battle
I'm not sure where this one is available but do know it is on the streets somewhere as photos of the set have appeared in the forum. (In case you're wondering, the LEGO CEE team sent them to me).
It consists of Wyldstyle with her nice hoodie neck-attachment and brandishing nunchucks (how times have changed... scenes with them in, used to be cut out of TMNT cartoons in the UK) and a small Micro Manager.
The MM is very well constructed and a perfect illustration of the potential of the new brackets which provide studs on all four sides of the MM's perfectly square body
30282 Super Secret Police Enforcer
This one is available from Toys R Us in the USA for a few dollars. The robot policeman is probably available in other sets, I don't have them all to check. Nevertheless it's a nice figure and one that it's fine to have multiples of given its genericity.
The police-space-ship-thingy is an interesting build and looks great.
There's not really much more to say about these small sets other than they are all interesting and collectable. My favourite would be Micro Manager Battle given it has the cool hoodie piece in it and a great looking Micro Manager. Grab them if you can...
