Every time a new LEGO movie hits, so too does a raft of new tie-in LEGO sets. Some are impressive, while some are decidedly meh.

The first wave of sets tied to The LEGO Movie 2 have been released or are about to be, and they’re really kind of underwhelming, save for a set full of Benny and his space mates and the latest to be announced, the positively huge, positively awesome ‘Welcome to Apocalypseburg!’.

Seriously, look at this incredible thing…


Boasting 3,178 pieces – which includes 12 minifigures – it also boasts a hefty price tag.

Is anybody thinking that this could be reappropriated for a Planet of the Apes scenario?

The LEGO Movie 2 hits Aussie cinemas later than the rest of the world, on March 21.
