The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Piece Offering (30340) Polybag Found at Target


The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet's Piece Offering (30340)

So far, I’ve already on two The LEGO Movie 2 polybags with the Mini Master-Building MetalBeard (30528) and Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) but it looks like there’s another one to look out far. One of our readers on our Facebook Page, Cory, has found Emmet’s Piece Offering (30640) at their local Target store. The polybag consists of 44 pieces and I assume it retails for $3.99 like all other polybags there. It looks to be found near the LEGO section as seen from the background of the image but they could also be put out on the endcaps or at the checkout lanes. Unfortunately, I do not have the DPCI to do a store search but I’ll get you that info when I have it. I’ll head out to my stores tomorrow to see if I can find any of them for a quick review.

The motivation was to refocus expenditure and limit Star Wars exposure to reset the franchise and allow fans to heal.

I’ve also heard another reason for Star Wars Days being cancelled is to shift focus to The LEGO Movie 2. There’s still a chance that LEGO Star Wars Days could return down the line but in the future, it’s done for.
