The book takes a brief look at the characters and locations from The LEGO Movie 2, which each of the main characters getting a two page spread, complete with fun facts like, Rex always looks good in photographs and that Unikitty thinks that people who put raisins in food are weird. I know I wasn’t the only one.
Some of the sets are also featured, unfortunately nothing that isn’t already known about. But it’s still a nice way to take a look at the sets and characters featured in the movie. Although it’s not as in-depth as the Making of books, previous released alongside The LEGO Batman and NINJAGO Movies, it does offer a look at a couple of previously unseen characters, including a new BrickHeadz plus some of the characters which will be featured in The LEGO Movie 2 LEGO Minifigures series.
There is some snippets of information dotted around like that the main language of the Systar System is song. It was previously rumoured that the sequel would be a musical, so that’s partly true. Can we expect a new song as catchy as Everything Is Awesome?
Don’t expect so many surprises or sneak peeks at upcoming sets, but you can take a look at some of the characters to be featured in the LEGO Minifigures series based on the movie, including Swamp Monster, Battle Abe Lincoln, Wasteland Mrs Scratchen Post, Giraffe Guy, Watermelon Guy and Crayon Girl. There is a previously unknown character called Balthazar, who is a handsome ice vampire mini-doll. But most surprising it the inclusion of a BrickHeadz character called Zen Bunny. Hopefully it will be released as a set at some point or someone will be able to recreate its instructions.
