Rotten Tomatoes has announced that The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part has been Certified Fresh on their Tomatometer. With a current rating of 83%, it ranks third of all the LEGO movies that have been released so far trailing The LEGO Movie (95%) and The LEGO Batman Movie (90%). Among the critics, there were 102 that gave it a Fresh rating while 21 gave it a Rotten rating. Most people don’t care about critic reviews as they would rather experience the movie themselves and make their decisions after. How many of you are going to see it this weekend and how many are seeing it for a second time after the early screening last week?
A few days ago, I reported that a couple of The LEGO Movie 2 BrickHeadz sets were available for purchase online at Walmart. These two limited edition BrickHeadz include Emmet (41634) and Wyldstyle (41635) and it was stated that they were limited to 5,000. As of this post, they are both out of stock online but I’ve seen some stock flicker in and out for them earlier today. I’ve heard stores will not be getting them as these are online exclusive but who knows if some of them will suddenly show up on the shelves.
At this point, I’m not sure if Walmart will restock or not. I suggest signing up for their in-stock alert in case they do come back. I also do not know if it will be available on LEGO [email protected] in the near future as all 5,000 of each BrickHeadz could be allocated to Walmart. Now that people know that these sets are limited, they are pretty much taking advantage of that knowledge on the secondary market. I’m still waiting to see when Sweet Mayhem (41637) will show up at Target. The retailer for Benny (41636) is still unknown at this time.
Barnes & Noble will be holding an in-store building event for The LEGO Movie 2 on February 23 at 2:00pm. The build will be a Mini Emmet’s Dream House/Rescue Rocket which is the same one that Toys R Us Canada got last month. In addition to the build, there will also be other activities and giveaways there as well. Supplies are limited and the press release says to sign up for the event but I don’t see anywhere on the site to sign up. I suggest calling your nearest store to see if they are taking sign ups or if it’s first come, first served.
Update: Here’s the link to sign up for the building event.

Yesterday I reported that The LEGO Movie 2 BrickHeadz sets have started to show up online at Walmart and we now have a look at the physical box. Over on Reddit, a user has managed to get their copy of Emmet (41634) and we get to see the limited edition sticker on the corner of the box. Again the four TLM2 BrickHeadz are limited to only 5,000 copies so they are somewhat rare so get them before they go out of stock. Emmet along with Wyldstyle (41635) are Walmart exclusive and early reports are that Sweet Mayhem (41637) is going to be at Target. I’m not sure where Benny (41636) will end up. Thanks to mc_survival_man for the heads up!
