Everything is awesome in the world of people excited for The Lego Movie 2: the minifigures based on the film have been revealed, and they're pretty damn cool.
Here's your first look:

The photo comes from the Lego 2019 catalogue, and as you can see, the version above is in Polish. So let's take another look in English to see what those tantalising messages say:

Not the clearest image (it's a photo of a catalogue) but on the left we have 'NEW February' – no surprises there as that's when the film comes out – and on the right, 'A new series out in may. You'll be surprised!'. Ooh.
The minifigs in the 20-strong set give us some clues as to what to expect from the film, too. Says Bricksfanz:
"Characters include Everything is Awesome Emmet, Apocalypseburg Lucy, Unikitty, Apocalypseburg-Borg Benny, Retirement Lord Business, Battle-ready Mrs. Scratchen-Post, Battle-ready Swamp Monster, Watermelon Guy, Giraffe Suit Girl, Battle-ready Abe Lincoln, Crayon Suit Girl, Rex Dangervest popstar Wyldstyle, and a couple of Systar System popstars.
Plus Dorothy, Tinman, Scarecrow and the cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz make an unexpected appearance."
Yep. Looks like the Wizard of Oz is prominently featured in the movie somehow. A joke about yellow brick roads, perhaps? We love a good crossover.
If you're planning to buy some of the figs, don't forget that Lego VIPs can get two free tix to the film with a £60 spend. Not cheap, but being a Lego fan never is.
