A new LEGO flyer has gone out in the mail for its first promotion of the month and it will be for The LEGO Movie 2 Rex’s Plantimal Ambush (30640). The polybag has 32 pieces and you can get it for free starting on February 8 at LEGO Stores and on [email protected] with purchase of $40 or more on TLM2 products. Thanks to Ryan for the heads up!
A few days ago, the building instructions for the LEGO BrickHeadz The LEGO Movie 2 sets became available online and it looks like a couple of the sets are now available for purchase at Walmart. Currently, online Emmet (41634) and Wyldstyle (41635) are available and they are listed as Walmart.com exclusives. In addition, the product description for Wyldstyle lists the sets as individually numbered 1 out of 5,000 units. This is very intersting because, as far as I know, there haven’t been any retail set being numbered but I could be wrong. If you’ve thought about getting The LEGO Movie 2 BrickHeadz but wanted to hold off, I suggest not doing that because there is a limited quantity on them. Both Emmet and Wyldstyle are $14.99 each but you can do in-store pickup to save on shipping.
LEGO has finally released the designer video for The LEGO Movie 2 Welcome to Apocalypseburg! (70840). LEGO designer Justin Ramsden, graphic designer Mike Patton, and element designer Ruth Kelly gives us a closer look at some of the details of the set as well as some behind the scenes look at what went in to create this massive set. Welcome to Apocalypseburg! is now available for purchase at LEGO [email protected] for $299.99.
Here’s a very interesting promotion item that only a handful of random LEGO Brand Stores were giving out yesterday to promote The LEGO Movie 2. Over on Reddit, there’s an image of a signed Will Arnett LEGO Batman minifigure and according to the thread, nine stores across the nation were giving out signed minifigures for people who made the first The LEGO Movie 2 purchase of the day. This particular one was from the LEGO Store at Paramus, NJ. I’m not sure if the minifigures are all of Will Arnett or a variety of the voice actors but I think this a really cool promotion for the movie since people didn’t know about it and people got it as a surprise that will probably be their highlight of the year. If you got one of these signed minifigs, let us in the comments below.
Update: It looks like the minifigures are from all the voice actors as there is a Tiffany Haddish Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi one from Twitter.

Last month, I ran a giveaway for readers of the site for a chance to win a theater sized poster for The LEGO Movie 2. The contest is now over with 3,050 entries and the winners have been randomly chosen and notified. Since the widget was broken for a few days, I extended it and also chose two additional winners on top of the original five. If you didn’t win, I have another sort of a giveaway coming up soon so stay tuned for that. Congratulations to the winners below.
There are some new building instructions for The LEGO Movie 2 LEGO BrickHeadz set that have been uploaded to LEGO’s servers. There characters that are included in the sets are Emmet (41634), Wyldstyle (41635), Benny (41636), and Sweet Mayhem. There’s no word on when they will be available on [email protected] but I believe they will come out in March if they do get released. One of the more cooler parts from these sets is the printed 1×4 brick of the Classic Space logo.
If you remember back of October of last year, I reported that the LEGO BrickHeadz was rumored to be ending. I should clarify that the licensed BrickHeadz would be done however LEGO will still produce the in-house sets like the Seasonal ones and for their own IPs.
