Ahead of New York Toy Fair this weekend, three new sets based off of The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part have been revealed on social media. They will be available sometime in the spring, likely around May.

They are as follows:

  • 70842 Emmet's Triple-Decker Couch Mech
  • 70837 Shimmer & Shine Sparkle Spa!
  • 70838 Queen Watevra's ‘So-Not-Evil' Space Palace

Here's a snippet from the press release:

Following the film’s opening nationwide, The LEGO Group unveiled today three additional building sets that join its broad collection of toys inspired by the new big-screen animated adventure “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” so that families can discover the joy of playing together. LEGO toys are displayed at American International Toy Fair in booth #1335 in Hall 3B of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from February 16-19.

Leading the next wave of film-inspired building sets is Queen Watevra’s ‘So-Not-Evil’ Space Palace, including the Queen, Batman, Ice Cream Cone, Celeste, Royal Guard, Stars, and Hearts ($99.99 USD). A detailed Shimmer & Shine Sparkle Spa! includes the ‘glampire’ Balthazar, Flaminga, Lucy, Unikitty, Benny, Eight, and Archimedes ($69.99 USD). Finally, builders will love Emmet’s Triple Deck Couch Mech, a next-level build upon Emmet’s invention from the original film that can be rebuilt into a walking mech, featuring Emmet, Unikitty and Sweet/General Mayhem ($29.99 [email protected] stores).

Got to be honest, those vampires were the absolute worst part of the movie.

You know, I was really hoping for another classic space set or Larry Poppins. Ah, maybe next wave...

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT SEEN THE MOVIE, LOOK NO FURTHER, AS SOME MAJOR SPOILERS WILL PROBABLY BE AHEAD.

The Space Palace looks really visually interesting and unique!

Love the couchmech and I'm glad glitter-vampire got a mini. The minifig selection in the castle feels weirdly compromised (no cape for bats, no torso/arms for icecream cone, tiny queen build).

Batman doesn't seem to have his fluffy cape which is disappointing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Very neat! BrickJournal has additional pictures, it seems.

The Triple-Decker Couch mech is great, being a two-in-one build. Love the startled Unikitty!

The Spa is great too, and seems to have a new "bat body" piece for Balthazar. I love all the brick-built characters and the great-looking parts selection.

As for the Space Palace... I like the overall look of the architecture, though I'm not so impressed with the shrunken Ice Cream Cone. On the other hand, the Royal Guard looks great even at a reduced scale, and I'm glad we'll be getting another of the spa vampires.

Leaving the theater, my son and I both agreed that we thought the vampire character was great. He was a hoot--funny character.

Triple Decker Couch Mech yeah, something Emmet's would have make.

No, Bruce Willis in SPA? I was too excited.

No Bruce Willis, disappointing

Super disappointed at the lack of Bruce Willis... was hoping he’d make an appearance in a set.

The couch mech being rebuildable is a cool idea, but it doesn’t really look like a $30 set to me. I like the Unikitty there, though! The spa is awesome, no complaints, although I wished it came with one more of Balthazar’s acolytes so we could have all three. The crystal vibe is awesome and I really love the new crystal hairpieces. The palace kind of disappoints me. It looks gorgeous to have on display, but the way it’s built makes me question if there will be a lot of room to play or any cool features. The shrunken down size of the characters is also disappointing. Why couldn’t they make a normal size Queen and Ice Cream Cone?? The guard looks okay although I also wish it was full size, and Batman desperately needs his cape.

The Couch Mech was something my brother and I were pinning for after the film, glad it's coming out! It would've been nice if another Apocolypseburg citizen was in it (the Mime, Vampire, Vemla, Mermaid, Larry Poppins, ect. Take your pic) but I'm fine that it doesn't

That spa build looks gorgeous. I wasn't sure how they could translate that thing into a set but it worked! A shame it doesn't come with that one elephant, but that's a very minor flaw.

The Palace seems nice. Its seems to be a somewhat micro build so I'm not as interested in it as the other two. I kinda wished the Royal Guard would've gotten it's own set (they're so cool) but even at a microscale it looks great!

I really hope that blue Apocolypseburg crane, the Unikitty Spaceship, Metalbeard made of muscial instruments, the Fox Suit character, and one of those black and green raptors comes in a set sometime. There's another set in this wave we have the number of but no pictures for right?

A Minifigure Bruce Willis will appear in the upcoming D2C release of Queen Watevra's ‘So-Not-Evil' Space Palace: Just the Duct Work. But it's not like he lives in there or anything...

By in Canada,

Honestly, getting to be a bit much...

Gravatar
By in United States,

So excited for the mech
Definitely getting it once it comes out

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Gotta be honest, I'm not liking these; the Mech is more a subpar derivative than an earnest callback to me.

I can appreciate the design of the Palace, but it's not for me. Here's hoping that Spa connects better to a possible D2C than to this retail set.

By in United Kingdom,

The spa looks like a frozen set..
The other two are ok, NOT GREAT but theres hope for the other themes lol..

By in Denmark,

We get Aceish Frehley Batman to go with our Geneish Simmons Batman.

By in Netherlands,

Wow, the palace is such a disappointment. Horrible mini versions of the Queen, Guard and Ice Cream Cone. No cape for Batman?
WHY???????????????

Gravatar
By in Canada,

The spa looks like it could be an Elves set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I so was hoping for Bill and Ted and Bruce Willis.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^Dang, we never did get any snow Elves sets. That could have been wonderful...

I showed the pictures to 2-of-3 in order. She liked each one more than the last.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Well Couch Mech's on my to buy list now.

Seriously though, no cape with Batman? Huge mistake as Batman fans would have bought that set just for him probably if he had it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Minus Batman not having the furry white cape, this pretty much fills my desire for additional minifigs from the movie - sparkly-haired vampire mini-dolls are pretty unique. Parrhap the furry cape will be on Batman in the 2nd minifigures series. Perhaps Bruce Willis as well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm so happy about that mech

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like the mech, and love the startled Unikitty. The rest just don't appeal. They're heavy on the Friends / Disney / Super-Hero-Girls look, where LEGO quite successfully killed off the latter with some terrible design.
Now every crawlspace needs a Bruce Willis, but the licensing cost may be too much for a set.

I agree that the Fox-Suit-Girl needs a minifigure though.

And another essential is 'Rocketman Benny' with his final glittery spaceship - either that or a huge white Steinway.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

hoping the theme park ride will be announced soon!

Gravatar
By in United States,

No Bruce Willis in the spa set :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm sure these aren't the last sets for the movie, I doubt they will be the last sets for the movie this year and the original had sets the following January.

They look fine, not as great as the first movie sets and the limited minifigure count is awful to a degree I don't think we have ever seen in LEGO. Two minifigures/dolls in a $100 set!?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Well its just a meh load of sets, though Emmets couch set is nice to see

Gravatar

I am sad that cool guards appear as small verion.

I have never laughed at a usage of a lego piece before until I saw the kitty's tail.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm glad none of these are good sets

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am not the target market.

But that's ok actually.. To be honest I'm almost thankful they haven't released a twice-as-biggerer and even-more-expensiverrerr Sea Cow or such.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The couch mech was one of the best reveals of the movie, IMO. The set is a bit so-so, but I'm glad it makes an appearance. The spa build is okay; the crystal structures are well done but it's not quite something I'd want. The vampire is cool, but I'm sad that Benny doesn't come with his star disco glasses.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

The Unikitty is great, loved how they captured cat behaviour in the model(s) in the film. The couch is a must have as well :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hope the elimination of Batman's cape is a mistake. I bet just about every AFOL in existence was like "ooooh, fuzzy cape!" while watching the movie and anticipated there being one in a set. You may as well eliminate Batman altogether if there's no cape. He's not complete without it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I need the Triple-Decker Couch Mech. as soon as I saw that in the movie, I hoped that it would be made into a set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Still waiting on that Unikitty spaceship ...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@legoavenger14: I think that's sort of the point… Balthazar in general seems to vaguely reference two properties that became very popular with girls in the past decade (Twilight and Frozen), much like how Unikitty's design seems to vaguely reference two much older and cutesier IPs that have been popular with girls for much longer (Hello Kitty and My Little Pony).

Very impressed with the Nexo Power tile recolor in that set! Those are always a fun element to play around with and I don't think we've them used in a layered pattern quite like this in any previous set.

@bnussbaum17: Surprised you're not used to the movie themes being this big and varied at this point. I think at this point it's even plausible that like The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie themes, there'll even be a small third wave of LEGO Movie 2 sets coming out around the beginning of next year. I suspect that some of the character designs from the film's second and third act and vehicles from the third act will be showing up then.

@David1985: I don't think two minifigure/mini-doll characters in that set is very surprising when it also has three brick-built characters (seven if you count the two hearts and stars). Even if Watevra, Ice Cream Cone, and the Castle Guard aren't made from specialized figure elements, they're close to the same size and kids are going to use them a similar way in play scenarios. A lot of Minecraft, Jurassic World, Friends, and Elves sets have a similar tendency to include fewer "minifigures" in BrickLink terms than other sets at similar prices, but make up the difference by including brick-built or molded creatures.

@lordofdragonss: If I'm remembering right, both the bigger guards with 3x3 quarter domes for shoulders and smaller guards like this one showed up in the movie. Though the bigger design has definitely appeared more prominently in the trailers.

@kinto: Isn't that basically what Welcome to Apocalypseburg is?

@bkuchman: Since the context in which those spaceships appear is a bit of a third-act spoiler, I suspect that we might see them in a third wave close to the beginning of 2019. Particularly since the designs and characters in those scenes tie in really nicely with the "Awesomer Together" tagline that LEGO is using to promote some of these sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Any chance we will get a look at any other new Lego sets at the Toy Fair?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm a little disappointed by the prices on these sets. I realize that the prices, at least in US dollars, are close to the $0.10 per piece "magic number", but the builds themselves don't really look it. The Spa set looks more like a $40 or $50 build and the couch looks like a $20, maybe $25 build.
Having said that, I'll be getting the couch for sure.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like the Couch Mech. That's the sort of thing that I was hoping for in the movie 2 sets. The rest? meh. I hope the kids love them, but they feel a bit unfocused to me. The original movie sets had a certain coherancy to them. And the fact that most sets had alt builds that worked with City or similar made them must haves. The Movie 2 sets are a weird mix between the Minifig and Minidoll lines, with a heavy Minidoll emphassis outside of the huge $300 set. That is a great concept for the movie, But not so much so for the product lines. The target play audience seems a bit scattershot with these two waves. There seems to be a similar dissonance with the CMF series. They are some nice figs, But some of them felt very tacked on and uneeded while a bit more postapocalyptic wasteland versions of characters we knew would have been a better choice.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great candidates for end of summer clearance! Should see at least 70% off on all these.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Well, I can see what the Elves design team have been up to, which bodes well for these sets.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Oh wow! These turned out even better than I'd expected! I'm particularly chuffed with the castle. At that price point I was a little skeptical, but this looks fantastic! I love that there are so many brick built characters in TLM2 sets. The minifigs and mini dolls are great, but the little brick built guys have all been standouts!

I'm actually not at all bothered that they reduced the piece count for Watevra and Ice Cream Cone. Chances are you already have those characters from other sets, but for the kids who get only that set, they're included. This way, more parts went into the (amazing!) structure itself. That works for me.

Batman's cape is a bit of an annoyance, but it's not like it's a unique brick or print that they left out. It's just fabric, and can be crafted by hand should you really need it.

I just can't stop drooling over these!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@KittyONeal, that’s a terrible attitude to have, and these won’t be 70% off.

@GrizBe:
Um...no. I hate Adam West, and his show, but I bought one copy of that set just because it wasn't worth buying the minifigs loose. For TLM, I bought the police dropship because (at the time) it was the only TLM set that came with Batman (and he wasn't even a new version). I was resigned to the fact that I was going to have to shell out for Apocalypseburg just because it comes with a new Batman and Harley Quinn. This ends that. I'll pick up this Batman and the three DC characters and Benny from Apocalypseburg, but I'm skipping both of those sets now.

@Gi-deon:
There's a reason for it, and it was probably the only point in this movie where I actually laughed out loud during the advance screening.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Was waiting to see where glitter Batman would show up! Count me in on that set!

@Faefrost: I've seen you comment this about the previous waves for this movie and I don't really know what coherency you were seeing with the first movie's sets that this movie's don't have. After all, the first movie had very different design languages for builds depending on whether they were associated with Bricksburg, Middle Zealand, the Old West, the Super Secret Police, Metalbeard, Classic Space, or Cloud Cuckoo Land.

Similarly, most LEGO Movie 2 sets' builds can be sorted pretty neatly by design language into seven categories based on whether they're associated with Apocalypseburg, the Systar System, the Sparkle Spa, Rex's fleet, Duplo, Classic Space, or Emmet's cozy classic aesthetic.

Certainly you might feel that more Apocalypseburg stuff would be more enticing while the Systar System stuff is a colorful mishmash, but other buyers might just as easily feel exactly the opposite, with Apocalypseburg's aesthetic looking messy and cluttered compared to the more elegant Systar System builds and colorful Systar System characters.

I don't think the use of different types of figures is that big a deal. Not only did the first movie have its share of that in the form of Unikitty, Metalbeard, and Snail, but also the new types of figures in these sets typically represent different alien races. Even The LEGO Batman Movie mixed things up in its own way by introducing bigfigs (Killer Croc and Bane) and its own uniquely styled brick-built figure (Clayface).

Echoing the 'no Willis? no fox-girl?'...hopefully a LM2:CMF2 will be in order (hmmm...Fabuland figures perhaps?). Set-wise, I guess 'the fleet' is in order, as those spaceships look amazing...maybe 'Heck' (row upon row of the same style housing on road baseplates):)

Oops, forgot: Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg should have her minifig too...that would be cool:D

@Aanchir:
No, Faefrost is right. Sure, TLM had a crazy array of different themes represented, from Fire, to Castle, to Wild West, but a lot of that stuff did have a common element in the way many of those sets had both a standard theme-specific build, and an alt build that helped tie them all together, and two common adversarial elements in the Skeletron police force and the Micro-Managers. There were definitely some outliers, like Cloud Cuckoo Land, but they weren't really a dominant part of the theme.

In contrast, there's really nothing but a handful of characters that link the Apocalypseburg sets to the Rex sets to the Systar sets to the Watevra sets. They even feel like they were designed by four different groups of people.

I knew that Triple Decker Couch will made it. Also thought that it's strange that there were no vampires in the 1st wave.

It's the only set, in which Lucy's hair have "natural" color.

No Rex-wing or uni-kitty star fighter yet is disappointing. Here's hoping for a Bruce willis polybag including a vent.

Mech couch and UniKitty - that set is a keeper.

By in United States,

Sorry I'm a bit late to add my thoughts to this wave. At first, I only liked the first two sets and thought the third set was a silly micro - scale set. However, after watching a video by Jang today, I began to realize how amazing the castle set is. Now, all the sets look really amazing, with cute figures and decent builds. It's a shame that I have a little limited budget on Lego because I think for the past few years, they've made amazing sets and they only continue to impress, but after trying to finish the Inifnity War wave, I cannot get the entire wave of a series for a loooong while xD. Anyways, I think Lego certainly has done a great job with these sets and if I were to predict the one I'd get, it would probably be the triple - decker - couch mech because it's a fairly cheap set with a crazy and unique build. Plus, the idea of a x decker couch is soo unique. But, to me, all the sets look good and if I had infinite money, I would buy them all

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would definitely agree with what others have said and say the triple decker couch is better then the main build, which the main build looks fine I guess. Sadly I have not seen the movie yet so I might be missing out on who exactly the characters are, thus the spa set does not interest me in the slightest. I like the palace though, it has a very unique look to it which makes it stand out, and there are some great new pieces here. The Rexcelsior also looks like a unique spacecraft build. This wave does not impress me as much as the first wave did, but I like the sets. Hope the movie is as good as the sets.

The couch mech though.

I’ve seen the movie. It was hands down the worst movie I’ve ever seen, including ”Little Nicky” with Adam Sandler (2000) and Sherlock Gnomes (2018)... The awful experience taints the appeal of these otherwise fine-looking sets.
