First comment! It's fun to see some characters from the original movie like surfer Dave, Larry the barista and the where are me pants guy.

Things I want: a TFA helmetless Kylo Ren with Lucy's scarf. Rey with dual-moulded flesh upper arms like Batman.

I was looking forward to Green Lantern, but they completely ruined him with that lame alternative face. What is that supposed to be?? Laughing gas? And why Is Harley in here? Wrong movie, lego. I hope she doesn’t have a prominent role.

Anybody else notice how Wyldstyle has printing on her left arm now?

I like how where are my pants guy still hasn’t found his pants even after the world ended.

What's with Green Lantern's goofy alternate expression?

Chainsaw Dave's leg print is way off.

I really want that Harley Quinn but I'm not buying the set for just that. I can guarantee you that's going to be the new hard to find minifigure for lots of money on eBay

@toalewa28 think she’s turning up in the collectible minifigs too.

Where Are My Pants? guy's underwear seems to have turned grey . . . no laundromats in Apocalypseburg!

I don’t know why people are confused about GL’s expression. It’s kind of doofy looking, which is how his character was portrayed in the first movie and Lego Batman to an extent. I remember once or twice in the first Lego Movie Green Lantern having that buck-tooth type appearance when he smiled.
As for Harley Quinn, her appearance is no more out of place than any other DC character. Just because she wasn’t in the first and was prominently featured in Lego Batman. It makes as much sense, or little, as any other cross-license character.

Great selection, but having been a Larry Barrista fan for ages, and loving the first trailer, him and CMF Surfer dude gone Mad Max are just awesome.

GL looks so distirbing

@Octopus.Boy agreed. And also, is Batman wearing tires or something? I still like Emmet though.

Literally, the only thing that caught my interest in this set is the Harley Quinn minifigure.

I have the original Larry! Now I need this version!

The Scribble Cop outfit is going to be perfect for custom versions of Mad Max.

Green Lantern and Harley are the stand outs for me. Haven't even looked properly at the set yet but will try and get these two one way or another.
Green Lantern's head will be firmly placed with the normal expression facing forward though.

Chainsaw Dave has a near perfect He-Man torso lol. I'd love to have Fuse's flame printed welding mask, as well as several other of these Minifigures and their accessories. Is it going to push me over the edge on a 300.00 purchase though? Hell nope.

These are really awful looking figures. I don’t mind the He-Man one though.

At first I thought I would finally procure a proper pair of boardies; sadly I now see that the same fate that haunts series two, and my 850449 lives on. Not a deal breaker but a missed opportunity.

I did not like a single set from the first LEGO movie when they first came out. I thought they were weird, bizarre, even stupid, and I knew the movie would be a waste. After I reluctantly saw the movie, I ended up buying every set I could still purchase. I will reserve judgment on these sets and the minifigs until after I see the sequel.

The lopsided smile on WAMP guy reminds me of Mineta for some reason.

They look excellent, but I think I just heard Chainsaw Dave yell "I have the power!!!!"

Give Chainsaw Dave some red speedo legs, and bam, you've He-Man.

I'm buying this set and getting 10% back when I sell that Harley Quinn fig for $30.

By in United States,

I'm psyched for the Suicide Squad Harley Quinn, though I wish they'd skipped the metal kneepad. I'd really like to see what the actual torso looks like on this version of Batman, since the legs and arms are clearly different from the one that just got released. I was kinda wondering why nobody was making note of the fact that Chainsaw Dave is the S2 Surfer, but I now realize there are significant differences between them (besides the chest straps). The Surfer's board shorts are black where these are dark-blue. The muscle pattern on the chest is completely different, and the Surfer's pattern is printed in orange. The stubble pattern is slightly different (and Dave's is two-tone), plus the cheekbone lines are completely different in shape and color. They look similar enough that if you saw them a day apart, you'd probably think they were exactly the same. The stickers on the surfboard also appear to be modeled after the S2 Surfer's painted board, but in greyscale instead of black and orange.

@Your future president:
There's no way they would have been able to produce any sets based on the Suicide Squad movie. The name alone rules that out. But they already included several DC characters in TLM (though, notably, zero villains), and they packed spin-off TLBM full of more DC characters than have ever appeared in any other theatrical release. Harley Quinn is, by all accounts, DC's second most popular character after Batman (who is himself the most popular comic book character period). Given any opportunity to slip her into an official set, it was probably too good to pass up. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they purposefully used this outfit just to create an alternative way to make this possible.

@LuvKernow:
Harley? Not in the wave that we've been staring at for the last week. There are no DC characters in the CMF wave at all. The only TLM2 DC minifig besides these three is the other version of Batman that looks similar to this one but without the brown arms and legs.

Is anyone else getting Fallout vibes from these ‘figs? (And, by extension, the set they come in?) no? Ah, well, i suppose we can’t all be video game nerds. Also, for some weird reason Harley’s hair keeps reminding me of ice cream. Anyone else?

Love The APOCA-BAT, Chainsaw Surfin' Dave, Green Lantern and Roxxi.
But I really love all the apocalypse type characters. Love the Mad-Max inspired designs.
I can see Scribble Cop used for a classic Mad Max custom fig as well as Roxxi for a Furiosa custom. Maybe Chainsaw Dave later on becomes....The Humongous!

Gravatar
By in United States,

That Harley Quin fig is gonna be sought after!

Gravatar
By in United States,

To me, the Harley Quinn figure is far and away the best in the set. I really like this set but wish it was a tad cheaper. I think $250 would have been a good price. I wonder how long it will be in production. Right now for $300 I would probably still lean towards Ninjago City.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Between this and last years Ninjago, we certainly are living in a golden era for people who’d love to make Mad Max MOCs.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Minifigures are definitely the best part of the set. Chainsaw Dave and Larry the Barista are the standouts for me, I guess I just like seeing old characters reimagined!

Gravatar

"Harley Quinn is, by all accounts, DC's second most popular character after Batman..."

She's *not*, but DC is determined to make her their version of Deadpool (because they're still desperate for Marvel-levels of returns), so here we are.

They printed 'daddy' on a minifigure, now we gotta kinkshame LEGO!

By in United States,

I have tried looking but cant tell. Is this Batman the same version as the one that comes in the set with metal beard? I thought it was different until I saw this one at a different angle and saw there were bare arms. Has anybody looked at them side by side?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It is weird that Harley's breasts have an outline on the jacket, which do not continue on the T-shirt. Cutting them into half just looks stupid. Once you see it, you cant unsee it, and this ruins the fig for me.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

For me it's Larry the Barista. Is anybody else imaging him asking what size of latte with Tom Hardy's Bane voice?

Maybe these figures are the reason this set is more expensive than some people would like. They're epic and five of them have arm printing.

Chainsaw Dave is glorious.

Other than that, I don't know what to say besides I want them all.

@Zordboy:
Except she is. Harley Quinn was created as a throwaway character for a single episode of Batman: The Animated Series, and proved so popular that they not only made her a regular character in the series, but they quickly introduced her to main comic book continuity at the time. I actually watched her first episode live, during the original broadcast. I also should have Deadpool's first appearance stashed away someplace, because I believe I was reading that title at that time. Deadpool only came out a year before Harley's first episode, but it took a few years, and some tweaking by other writers, before he really took off (the whole personality and 4th Wall thing came quite a bit later). Even then, I don't think he ever hit Harley Quinn levels of popularity until the first movie came out. Outside of comic book stores, most people only knew of him from the Wolverine movie...which is exactly why it took so long (and a bit of "leaked" video) to get the real Deadpool movie off the ground. Harley was only held back by the fact that WB (in true Hollywood tradition) didn't believe a female could headline a comic book movie, and the understandable push to make Wonder Woman the first female to do so.

But check the Wikipedia page for links to proof if you don't believe me. She ranks with Batman and Superman in terms of how many titles she appears in, Jim Lee ranks her with the Trinity in terms of importance to DC's publishing, any merchandise featuring her tends to fly off the shelves, and while Deadpool had a long, slow rise to becoming a household name, Harley has appeared in eight animated series (with a ninth on the way), and at least one live-action series (with at least two other instances that are either cameos or easter eggs, depending on how you take it).

No, DC isn't trying to make Harley into their version of Deadpool. Pretty much since she first appeared she's been consistently more popular than he has. They're both great characters, but the only major similarity (besides costume colors) is that they're both certifiably nuts. But if you want to go that route, they're both cribbing Joker's style...

@freow:
No, they're different. This Batman has brown boots and vambraces.

@inversion:
Think that's weird? Go look at images of the first Harley Quinn minifig from 2008. They printed the black body panels over the white detail lines, so she looks like she's only got one. Additionally, the waist curves are all cut off on either top or bottom on both sides. They did notice the print error after the first batch of sets had shipped, and they corrected it the next time they printed those torsos.
