New LEGO Set Revealed At London Toy Fair

In a rather surprise move for LEGO®, they have used the London Toy Fair to reveal an all new LEGO set. In the past, the first toy fair of the season normally doesn’t offer much, with photographs not allowed or in recent years not even being able to describe what’s on show, but today we get the first look at a new set based on The LEGO Movie 2. Set 70839 Rexcelsior! is Rex Dangervest’s epic fistbump ship, which is actually a microscale build, as you can see from the various tiny ships, mini dinos and microfigs also included. Although there are a couple of Minifigures, including Emmet with ‘stubble’. This 1826 piece set has an RRP of £139.99 GBP, $149.99 USD, €149.99 and will be available May 1st, along with a number of other sets based on the movie. We’ve teamed up with Jedi News for our London Toy Fair coverage so be sure to check back here and over on Jedinews.co.uk for the latest toy fair news.

[LONDON, 22.01.19] In a global exclusive reveal at this year’s London Toy Fair, The LEGO Group has shown off an upcoming addition to its range of exciting products from The LEGO® MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART™ (in UK cinemas February 8th) – in the form of new hero Rex Dangervest’s ship, The Rexcelsior.

The 1,826 piece model, released in summer 2019, gives builders of all ages the chance to take control of all-action hero Dangervest’s vessel, shaped like a fist and featuring a rapid-fire, 6-missile spring-loaded shooter with shooting function and a trigger in the back, allowing them to role-play space missions with Rex, Emmet and Rex’s raptor crew.

Measuring over 7” (19cm) high, 15” (40cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide, The Rexcelsior features a detailed microscale interior, as well as Stubble Trouble Emmet and Rex Dangervest Minifigures, Emmet and Rex LEGO Microfigures, five micro raptor toy dinosaur figures and five micro build models including Emmet’s house and a dropship.

Builders aged 10+ can make their play experience ‘awesomer together’ by building with a friend – whether spotting the details of the micro-scale interior (featuring its own skate park, cargo bay and command bridge) or by joining the raptors in the cockpit as they set off on more space adventures.

The set is part of a wider range of products from The LEGO® MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART™ that will bring to life a range of exciting LEGO sets and play experiences for kids and parents, such as Emmet’s Thricycle and Rex’s Rex-treme Offroader. Builders can break and rebuild their structures for extra fun, and to even create their own version of The Rexcelsior!

The Rexcelsior has been revealed for the first time at London Toy Fair in a global exclusive and will officially launch in summer 2019 for a RRP of £139.99.
