Before The Lego Movie opens in February, Lego will debut 17 new sets that feature locations from this upcoming animated movie. We have four photos of some of these sets, which showcase the Cloud Cuckoo Palace, President Business' evil lair, and characters such as William Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln and many more. Take a look at these photos and, in case you missed it earlier this week, you can CLICK HERE to watch the full-length trailer.
Cloud Cuckoo Palace
A building set based on a key scene in the film. The set features Emmett, Wyldstyle, and a villain named Executron. But the real highlight here is a never-before-seen character named Uni-Kitty, who's voiced by Community and Mad Men star Alison Brie. How Uni-Kitty fits into the plot remains to be seen, but if the building set is any indication, her role is definitely a colorful one. The Cloud Cuckoo Palace, which will cost about $20.
President Business' Lair
Characters in the set include [Lord Business], Emmet (the movie's lead, voiced by Chris Pratt) plus Vitruvius, Ma Cop, Pa Cop, Lord Business and wrestler/Master Builder, El Macho Wrestler, and brick-built Biznis Kitty, a different version of Unikitty. (The latter two are brand new creations.) The set will have 738 pieces, retail for $89.99 and hit stores in January, 2014.
