I’ve managed to complete The LEGO Movie Video Game on the Playstation 4 and have managed to get all the trophies associated with the game. Here’s an in-depth guide to completing everything the game has to offer including how to get all the Red Bricks to getting all the Golden Instruction pages. There are some things that you can easily do in Story Mode but the majority has to be done in Free Play since you will need specific abilities from various characters to do certain objectives. Hopefully this guide can help you out in your quest to getting the final “The Piece of Resistance” achievement.
