The LEGO Movie Action Cups are now available at McDonald’s and I’ve managed to collect all 8 cups. The action part of the cups is the lenticular feature that they have. Each cup features a portrait of a character in the movie with their names as well as a scene that changes. If you haven’t seen the movie yet (what are you waiting for?), the some scenes on the cups may contain spoilers.
Emmet’s cup shows him smiling and holding a hammer. The scene shows him falling into another brick dimension.
Batman switches from normal to angry expressions and holding his Batarang. The scene shows him arriving in his Batmobile to rescue Wyldstyle and Emmet.
Bad Cop/Good Cop
Bad Cop switches to Good Cop and he holds a microphone. The scene shows Bad Cop’s flying police car and the 4×4 SWAT car chasing Wyldstyle. You also see Sheriff-Not-A-Robot.
MetalBeard’s portait doesn’t really show much. It just shows him raising his cannon arm and his other shark-attached arm. His scene shows the Sea Cow being attacked by Super Secret Police Dropships.
**Spoilers Ahead** Vitruvius’ cup shows his young version as well as his older blinded version. The scene shows him and Emmet looking at a bird imagined by Emmet.
President Business’ portrait shows him smiling with his coffee cup while his Lord Business version shows him in his menacing outfit. The scene him riding a mech that I don’t remember seeing in the movie. I could be wrong though.
Wyldstyle’s cup shows her winking and holding a stick of some sort. The scene shows her rescuing Emmet in the Super Cycle.
The final cup is Unikitty. Her portrait shows her changing into Angry Kitty. **Spoilers ahead** The scene shows the Dog Colisseum being attacked by a tennis ball although the movie shows a golf ball flying in. The background shows a few LEGO characters including Cleopatra, Batman, Lizard Man, Forestman, and Benny.
Overall, the Action Cups are some decent collectibles. They have some nice artwork and the cups themselves are some good hard plastic. Are they worth $1.99 each? Probably not. To me, the cups are worth about $1.50 or less but if you’re a fan of The LEGO Movie, then you’ll probably end up getting them anyways. Again, you do not have to buy the food to get the cups. You may have to go to different McDonald’s restaurants to find all of them since some sell out quickly while others still in boxes and aren’t open yet. Your mileage may vary a lot. I recommend picking them up if you can find them. They do make a nice addition to your LEGO Movie collection.
