The LEGO Movie introduced a fantastic selection of exciting characters, many of whom have been updated and appear in 71023 The LEGO Movie 2 Collectable Minifigures.

We have divided our review into two sections, the first of which concerns primary characters such as Vest Friend Rex, Gone Golfin' President Business and Apocalypseburg Benny!
