    Toy Fair 2014: The LEGO Movie
    Hot Bionicle NewsMonday, February 17th, 2014 at 4:05pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    By popular demand, next up in our Toy Fair 2014 coverage we have The LEGO Movie! The film is still number one in the box office after two weekends and I'm sure that's helping the sets fly off the shelves. Of course, in my opinion, the coolest sets aren't even out yet! Read on to see what's coming later this year from this awesome theme.

    Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 01

    Upcoming Sets

    70810 Metal Beard's Sea Cow

    Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 20 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 21 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 24 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 25 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 27 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 28 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 29 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 30 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 31 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 22 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 23 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 32 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 26

    First, if you haven't yet, go check out the official announcement for this set which includes a designer video. Next, this set was in a display case with some of that fancy glass you read about in Popular Science that can turn opaque/transparent depending on the current running through it. The technology is clearly not perfect yet, so the glass still had a bit of a whitish-tinge to it that you can see in the photos.

    Anyway.

    This set is incredible. The sheer scale is crazy and I'm still pretty sure it's the largest pirate ship we've ever seen out of Denmark. In addition to the ship, you get a smaller version of MetalBeard, two micro managers, and the double-decker couch (apologies for calling it a sofa yesterday, I stand corrected). Really I think the only thing it's missing is Batman, as he was in this part of the movie too. While most of the cannons sticking out of the side don't fire, there's still SIX that do, which is probably another pirate ship all-time high. It captures what you see in the movie wonderfully, and has a detailed interior too. I need to find a way to add it to my collection (and a place to put it!).

    70814 Emmet's Construct-o-Mech

    Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 08 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 09 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 10

    708 pieces. Age 8+.
    $59.99 (USD) $74.99 (CAD)
    Available in June

    I'm impressed that they fit this set into the $60 price range, which makes it both awesome and affordable. But as awesome as it is, we all know the real reason to buy it is for Angry Kitty, so we can get the complete collection. Still though, this is a very impressive set with a lot of detail that captures what you see in the movie in a slightly-smaller but no less cool form.

    70815 Super Secret Police Dropship

    Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 06 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 07 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 35

    854 pieces. Age 9+.
    $79.99 (USD) $99.99 (CAD)

    You see many of this type of ship in the movie during one particular scene, and this set represents it really well. It also is the only way to get Batman (although I don't know if he's different from the fig that comes in DC sets), Johnny Thunder (was he even in the movie?), and the Green Ninja (pretty sure he's the same as the Ninjago fig). There's a lot of cool details and it's definitely a nice set, but probably my least favorite of the summer wave.

    Please note: the tinfoil Emmet minifig in the last picture does not come in this set, it comes in 70816 Benny's Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!

    70816 Benny's Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!

    Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 33 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 34 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 15 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 16 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 17 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 11 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 12 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 13 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 14 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 18 Toy Fair 2014 The LEGO Movie 19

    Spaceship! At $100 for 940 pieces, on the surface, this set seems like it has less value than some of the others in the line. But let's be serious, this set exists for the fans, paying homage to the Classic Space line and capturing the look of those old sets wonderfully with modern pieces (no, that's not old grey). Plus you get Benny, Wyldstyle in her spacesuit, Space Kitty, and tinfoil Emmet. While I'm glad to get that last fig, he seems like an odd inclusion, but I won't complain too much. All in all this is a gorgeous set and a must-buy for any space fan.
