Everything is awesome today

Posted by ,

The LEGO Movie is released in the UK today. Three editions are available (DVD, Blu-Ray, Bly-Ray+3d) which can be ordered from Amazon.co.uk.

There's no sign of the 'Everything is Awesome' edition, though. Some sites are speculating that it might turn up as a retailer exclusive somewhere but I would have thought they'd be advertising it pretty heavily by now if that was the case.

However a version with the Vitruvious minifig is available in Italy, and can be ordered from Amazon.it for €16. Postage to the UK is €3.87 which makes the total, when paid in sterling, £16.

So, apart from USA, Canada and Italy, where else is a minifig edition available? Let us know if you can buy it in your country.

Update: It's also available in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Finland and Australia; see the comments for more information.

Such a disappointment that we can't get the special edition Vitruvius in the UK...

But you can get it for just £3 more than the price of the Blu-ray in the UK from Amazon.it, so there's really no good reason for not buying it from there...

£16 for the 'Everything is Awesome' edition is a good price me thinks......

It has been out on DVD and Bluray in the Netherlands and Belgium since the 17th of June (yes, more then a month already). It has the English, Dutch and French language options.

No minifig though.

There was a lot of rumour that Sainsburys might get the mini figure version (as they did with the Hobbit) but saw a TV ad last night that had a buy it from sainsburys thing tagged on the end and no mention so I suspect they don't have it (can't be bothered to make a trip to see as I've ordered the from amazon.it )

In Australia there was a special edition 3D Blu-Ray with Vitruvus minifigure and 3D Emmett Face that was only available from Sanity & JB Hi-Fi.

@MINI-FIG-HUNTER, it's not the 'Everything is Awesome' edition: that includes DVD, Blu-ray and 3d versions on 3 discs, the minifig and a largely superfluous 3D poster-thingy of Emmet.

The EiA edition also has a 'Dream Job: meet the LEGO builders' documentary which it claims is exclusive to that edition and indeed it's not in the list of extras of the UK Blu-ray at Amazon.co.uk. It's the best extra feature on the disc...

I managed to get the Aussie Special Edition 3D Blu-Ray with Vitruvus minifigure and 3D Emmett Face from Jb HiFi on release day for AU $30 not sure if they are still available but normal Blu Ray is $30 and the DVD version is $20

I'd like to know the reasoning behind there being no Vitruvius figure in the UK, surely one of the biggest markets for Lego?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Interesting that it's out already in Australia: surely it's not been 3 months since it premiered in the Cinema there?

I got the Blu Ray with the figure via Italian Amazon a couple of weeks ago. Was a bit worried it either wouldn't play or be dubbed into Italian but it was all fine. The only obvious difference was the sleeve/case is all in Italian but this doesn't bother my 5 year old!

By in Denmark,

The Vitruvious minifigure edition has also been available in Denmark for about a month now. It costs 139 dkk, around $25 US.

By in United Kingdom,

Just had a look in Birmingham and out of Morrisons local, Tesco Metro, HMV, Game and WhSmith no sign of any copies with the minifigure so suspect will not be available in the UK.

Though if you want the 3D blu ray it's £17.99 in HMV which is best price on the high street I've found without ordering online. Not sure on Sainsburys though as only had the DVD in the city centre local ...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Sainsbury's had it for £16, suspect Asda and Tesco's will be around same. HMV always have a higher mark-up on premium editions...

The Italian version has no German voice-overs, too bad. The German release is on 21st of August. Grrr!

By in United Kingdom,

What an epic FAIL for LEGO. Release an edition with figure just about everywhere EXCEPT the UK!? Sorry, but as a form of protest for not getting the figure, you're not getting a sale from me. I'm not prepared to buy from Italy either. I mean, you can package LEGO with the Hobbit here, but not with The LEGO Movie!? That really doesn't make any sense...

Everything is NOT awesome in the UK :-(

By in Finland,

Finland has had it for a couple for weeks, Bluray, 3D Bluray and DVD with minifig :-) Some shops also offered a free Lego movie shopping bag!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Good grief! Does this mean to get everything you can find in the special or collector's edition it's going to cost between £30 and £40 to get it imported into the UK from the states? Darn!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^^ I think 'just about everywhere' is a bit of an exaggeration, but yes I agree it's annoying!

Why not buy from Italy? if you use Chrome which translates on-the-fly, the experience is no different from buying from Amazon.co.uk and I believe your UK Amazon account will work just fine there, too.

Available in New Zealand since July 2nd. Got mine for $40NZ (20.35 Pounds / $34.70US / 25.70 Euro) via Mightyape.co.nz. (No longer seems to be available) Watched it in 3D on the weekend. Fantastic!

Since no minifig deal in the UK, I went with the Blinkbox deal for 500 tesco points free for £9.99 streaming. I'll double them up to something useful in the future making it free. My latest round of tesco vouchers allows a double up on tesco direct so getting a Benny's Spaceship for free.

Can't believe no minifig, they've been chucking them out endlessly, can't see why they've failed with the DVD release.

^^^ No offence meant to Italians, but I can't trust their postal service enough to buy anything from there, but that's my personal preference. If it were any other Amazon, I might have taken the plunge :-)

The idea that arguably much more niche markets than the UK are getting the figure is what caused me to say "just about everywhere" - because that's just what it feels like to a UK person.

Anyway, that's my last post on the matter. The money I've saved can go on more LEGO :-)

By in Sweden,

In Sweden the special edition DVD package with Vitruvius can be bought, at least in Coop stores. Costs 149 SEK, about 21$ or 12£.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If the figure came in a polybag, like the computer game bonuses etc, then I might have thought that one of the UK newspapers might have a promotion for it, but again with no news on it and the fact it looks to be blister pack I'd say probably not the case.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Is the version with the fig still available in the US? I'm going there this summer and may pick it up from Amazon.com if so, but the way they organise the products (and variants thereof) is kinda confusing...

By in United Kingdom,

"No offence meant to Italians, but I can't trust their postal service enough to buy anything from there"

I've bought from Amazon.it on multiple occasions and never had a problem; my understanding is that concerns regarding the local postal service are generally expressed by folks posting items TO Italy rather than buying FROM there.

By in United Kingdom,

I ordered the awesome package from the usa had it about 3 weeks now got the figure and 3d poster thing of emmett if you want it just order it. Lego do some very strange things when it comes to marketing. No-one in the uk complained when we got the Olympic figures !!!!!!

By in Belgium,

Here in belgium we got the minifig at some stores (carrefour, bartsmit) with any edition. I paid 16.99€ for the bluray

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I regularly buy from Amazon.it and never had any problems whatsoever. I just didn't buy the Italian version because it does not have German voice-overs. Not a problem for me, but that's a movie some kids will want to watch eventually.

By in United States,

Is this marketing really up to Lego, or Warner Bros.?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Has anyone tried Sainsburys?

By in Norway,

I randomly spotted the DVD (no blu-ray of 3D) with Vitruvius in a Rema1000 store (grocery store chain) in Norway a little over a week ago. I didn't buy it as I had already got the Everything is Awesome edition from Canada (was sligthly cheaper than US), and the price was almost as high as I'd paid for that... When we were back there a couple of days later it was gone (there was only one on the shelf when we were there). Have not seen it in any other Rema1000 or other stores in Norway since.

By in France,

I haven't read all the comments so it might have been mentionned already but in Belgium I've had the happy surprise to find out that the fig is given with every version at Carrefour (at least the one in Waterloo, I haven't checked the others). I got mine in a loose plastic wrap pasted on the box of the regular blu ray and it was the same for the dvd and the 3D version.

Gravatar
By in France,

In France, DVDs with exclusive Vitruvius mini figure were sold from 25th June only in supermarkets chain Leclerc at 14,99 € (20 $ or 12 £). They were sold out few days later in my local store. I managed to get the DVD later, but it’s now very difficult to find them. Staff told me there won't be any new DVDs ordered.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Well, I just had to settle for the Blu-Ray version, since the extras on the DVD version are poor. It is poor on the side TLG to decide that the UK is not worthy of the EIA edition. Is it the usual excuse, that North America has the biggest market (which is partly because it has a populas which is thousands of times bigger than that of the UK.

Unfortunately, I cannot purchase online, due to no plastic. No doubt that there will be importers who will be capitalising on this extortion opportunity.

By in United Kingdom,

Ultimately Lego/Warner lose out as we only have so much disposable income. A lot more of that is lost to exchange rates, shipping etc than would be spent on Lego.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@darthdc - I don't think TLG would have been involved in the decision; it's Warners' movie, blame them.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does anyone know if editions in the uk come with. UV ?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@TheOneVeyronian - It's my understanding that if you order from a EU Amazon site with a shipping address in another country where Amazon has a warehouse, they send the package to the correct country by an internal warehouses transfer and then despatch it locally.

By in Singapore,

I don't think I have seen the Everything Is Awesome boxset for the movie here in Singapore yet. Maybe I haven't been looking hard enough but if I see any I'll post it here again.

^^ I think you are right. A bit crazy, isn't it.

By in United Kingdom,

My blu ray from Canada came from Canada directly as there was supposed to be an import admin charge payable but UPS never asked for it when delivered so I got away with it ;-)

A TLM Emmet's apartment building Modular could be cool.

I've got TLM Blu Ray on the way from Italy.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Just ordered mine from Italy. Fingers crossed it arrives in good condition.

By in Ireland,

Wow, we actually got it before the UK? It's been in the shops in Ireland since last Friday. No minifigs but at the moment it comes with a voucher for one kids free entry to Legoland Windsor or Discovery Centre Manchester. That'll come in handy in August ;-)
Amazon sell a collectors double DVD but it's Region 1 and NTSC. Haven't figured out if my TV can do NTSC.

By in Australia,

@HUW TLM was released in Australia in April (easter school holidays) we had the DVD release about 3 weeks ago, so close enough to 3 months from movie to DVD. Was rather surprised we had it before the UK :o Then again we dont get polybag promotions with our newspapers :(

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I picked up my copy of the special edition 3D Blu-Ray with Vitruvus minifigure and 3D Emmett Face @ JB Hi-Fi. It was the same price as the standard Blu-ray (without a minifigure) No brainer, really.

By in Germany,

Ach, I forgot I had already pre-orderd the UK BD release, which has just been dispatched. Oh, my! :-/

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I haven't bought it yet.

I can wait to see if an Everything Is Awesome edition comes out here in UK, or I can buy the DVD in a while when the price lowers.

I don't want to buy an Italian BluRay just to get a minifig when I don't have a BluRay player. I guess it's not that important to me to get the minifig. Or the movie, it seems, despite loving it when I went to the cinema.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Surprised to see that Lego.com is not selling it.

As for the Blu-Ray, if you have a PS3, then use that. Hooked up mine to a bigger telly to get the most out of it.

By in Spain,

Here in Catalonia the movie is available since mid June in two combos: BD+DVD and BD3D+BD2D. The fnac store had two offers purchasing any combo: a LEGO minifig limited to the first purchases and 25 packs of LEGO merchandising/sets in a draw until the end of June. The LEGO minifig should be "a robot" but I heard of different ones, like the Pyjamas Emmet, so the robot could be the Radio DJ Robot, the two polybags that were giveaways in the UK.

By in Germany,

According to rumors Germany will have the EiA Edition on August 21st exclusively at the chain store "Müller".

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Might also be worth noting that, should you want the 3D EiA edition (hey some of us do :D), then it's not actually sold by Amazon.it but by one of their 'partners', some of which won't ship internationally.

By in Canada,

According to the information: The LEGO Movie Blu-Ray/DVD will be available for purchase from middle of August (maybe) in Hungary.

By in Canada,

I found the DVD version of The LEGO Movie today in the TESCO Hypermarket in Budapest (3290 HUF, or ~10,5 EUR, or ~8,4 GBP).
