LEGO Movie 2 Minifigures & Trading

I haven't seen the new LEGO movie yet but I decided to pick up a few figures for the heck of it. There's a fun assortment of characters but what I really want are the Wizard of Oz crew.


If you want to see the full line-up or need a handy guide for how to feel for a specific figure, head over to Brickfinder. When I say "how to feel" I'm not talking about getting all emotionally deep, I mean physically feeling the bag for the figures you want!

I'm not 100% sure but they may have done away with the bump codes on this series. Another change is that the figures have white baseplates instead of black. I think the black ones look much better.

Here's a quick look at what I scored.


President Business has gone golfin' and is sporting the most golfingest golf outfit you've ever seen. Hey look, it's the Cowardly Lion! One down. All four of the figures have an alternate face on them. The Lion is probably the least different, he has this sort of sad face and then a neutral face. He needs a roaring face, right? He is the Kiiiiiing of the Forrrrrrest after all.


Get ready to rock with Kitty Pop and Candy Rapper! Like I said, I haven't seen the movie so I don't know how big a role these two play but they're pretty cute. The colors and accessories are fantastic. Kitty Pop is obviously inspired by Josie & The Pussycats. Cat ears? Check. Whiskers? Check. Long tail? See below. I love Candy's tiny cassette tape. I'm sure some parents will have to explain that one to their kids.

Here they are jammin together with their alt faces.


As you can see, Kitty Pop has a tail to complete her look.
Further proof of my Pussycat theory.

So who's up for some trading?

I still need Dorothy, Tin Man, and Scarecrow from this set. In addition to the ones pictured above, I also have the ones below up for trade. If I've got something that catches your eye I'm still open to trading for other blind bag minifigs.

  2. Aww! I headed over here after being sent pics of these in my Flickr email update. I love the ones inspired by Josie and the Pussycats and JEM. At least I see her as JEM.

    1. Now that you mention it, I can see it. I'm aware of Jem but it's not something that's generally in the forefront of my brain.

    2. JEM was pretty darn cool to me when I was a kid, so she's rattling around in my subconscious. :) I revisited the JEM cartoons somewhat recently and they didn't exactly hold up. Still, I like her style.
