Announcing 70840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg!

The LEGO Ninjago Movie lead to two large sets that were both absolutely fantastic and it seems that The LEGO Movie 2 is following in the same footsteps with this outstanding looking set.

The set features Apocalypseburg, as seen in the trailers for the film. This post-apocalyptic setting features a Planet of the Apes inspired Statue of Liberty setting with a whole bunch of fun additions such as the Coffee Unchained coffee shop. There is also Scribble Cop’s office, armory, barber’s/tattoo parlor, Lucy’s hideout, Fuse’s workshop, rooftop diner, gym, spa and lookout platforms.

Filling out the set are 12 amazing minifigures. There’s post-apocalyptic versions of heaps of characters from the LEGO Movie, including a battle hardened “Where are my pants?” guy and chainsaw Dave (formely surfer Dave).
