    I have to say that my impression from your posts since you joined is of a new member instantly trying to force his/her opinions on the forum in an unnecessarily confrontational manner. This forum is remarkably free of the sort of nonsense that pervades other fora, which is why your some of posts are being met with resistance from people who have been around here for longer than a few days.
    I'm not qualified to contribute to the discussion at all, but can tell you that there are plenty of differences of opinion on here that are discussed in a rational and friendly way without resorting to personal attacks on either other members or the way the forum works.



    was Fora a typo, or is that the plural for forum?

    Does anyone know if there was any promos handed out for the movie

    Movie was great. Perfect compliment to the first one, as sequels should be. Songs weren't annoying either.

    Fora is the Latin plural form of forum when used to describe a physical forum by its classic definition of a meeting square generally centrally located within a settlement.  As to whether it’s the correct plural form when describing a collective of internet based meeting places...that’s open to conjecture (especially among English speakers).

    Source - arguments on other Internet forums (fora).

    arent you glad you asked?

    Another song from the movie:

    I think this one is actually catchier than the catchy song...
    The Lonely Island? Weird choice, but I'm not complaining...

    ^Lonely Island was featured on the original Everything is Awesome song, so it makes sense.

    For anyone here who's bought one, are the CMF boxes sealed shut, or are they shipped in an fashion that can be tampered with?

    Is the Tin Man meant to come with 3 bowties and 2 hearts?
    Mine did as well. 

    I've been out of the fold for awhile.  Sold of most of my collection including the CMF.  I had to drop back in for the Oz figures though as it was one of my favorite movies growing up.  My figure detection skills are a little rusty, but managed to find all four of them and added the giraffe and crayon fig just because...  This was the first time I encountered the inner sealed baggie though - is that a new thing for this series?  There didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to me for when a figure has it or not. Some of mine did and some of them didn't. It doesn't seem to be based on small parts though.

    Right, tickets booked for the lad and me tomorrow! First film I've been truly excited about in a pretty long time (including star wars films) :-)

    Just the shipping box seal from what I can remember. The actual display box doesn't have tamper seals.

    @Jern92 he was in the crowd in Harmony Town. (: 

    I too saw it last night and I really liked it. Definitely not as good as the first one, but this was still pretty good. I didn’t like how they handled certain characters from the first movie and I have some other relatively minor problems with the film, but the good outweighed the bad for me. The songs, animation, and the jokes were all great and I can’t wait to see what other sets they’ll make!

    Okay, I know this is a Chevy commercial, but LEGO - don't tease me!  This better be the next Creator vehicle after the Mustang.

    Liked the movie.  Certain parts were slow and ultimately it's a disposable movie, reminded me of GotG 2.  

    But I can see why the folks over at Disney could have some reservations about handing over creative control of Solo.  Making Solo a bland retrospective rather than a zany buddy comedy is way less risky.

    Anyway, worth one viewing at the theatre.  The callbacks to TLM were very clever - I was very impressed.

    How many waves were there in each of the Batman and Ninjago movie themes? 

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 12,042
    As I recall, TLBM had three 'waves' and TLMN had two 'waves', and the Ninjago City Docks was released after the second 'wave'.

    So, we can reasonably only expect a third wave of TLM2 sets, eh? 

    The sets must be moving well. I was fully expecting to see sales on them today, to coincide with the film release (as is usually the case) but there are none at all, outside of the [email protected] 2x points thing.

    LEGO produces tons of these sets.  To the point where I don't think they care just how much product is out there.

    I was baffled why there needed to be a Double-Decker Couch set.  (But I bought one for Benny!)

    I really liked the Double Decker Couch set, tbh. Ghost Vitruvius and Emmett's car were particularly exciting for me. Getting more sand blue 2x2 plates to swap out with the modified 2 stud plates on the couch from the Sea Cow was a nice bonus. 

    The Batman and Unikitty set was okay too. Super Angry Kitty was kinda cute, and an extra Skeletron was welcome (previously only included in the Construct-O-Mech). 

    The other one, with the non-flying model of Bad Cop's car and the chopper was.... a waste of money.

    My box was kinda opened inside, although the brown carton box was sealed.

    Plus the packets are all jumbled up, so no longer in the correct neat order of 20 unique packets per column.

    Luckily my boy is good at feeling the packets (like only took few seconds each) and helped me sort out the 3 sets. :-)

    Just back from the cinema. We loved it, made us want a few of the sets and crossing fingers that a there will be some stuff made into sets in the next wave.
    It was a nice continuation of the first film with great cameos from some 80s films and other Lego themes.
    We stayed to the end and of the credits, nothing happens! But there are some fan built MOCs that appear. There was an odd one from a UK couple that was a peacock with tail feathers like a pizza. "Pizzacock" will be the must have set for AFOLs!

    I saw the movie a second time today (thanks to a free voucher and a cancelled class) and still enjoyed it, albeit not as much as the first time. Noticed a few more jokes that I missed the first time round, and the ending still touched me despite already knowing what would happen, so all in all, I had a good time. It kinda makes me want the Apocalypseburg set more now; dammit Lego, the movie does too good a job advertising it!

    Saw the movie last night and loved it so much! Thinking of going to see it again over the weekend, and hunt for giraffe suit guy while I'm at the mall. Did anyone actually see him in the movie? I saw all the other minifigures (usually in the background) but not him.
    You can see him in the crowd when Rex is holding them all back with the truck.

    Trying to spot all the CMFs from the movie line in the film is a game in itself - there's some proper 'blink and you'll miss them' ones!

    I'm not digging the random advertisements for unrelated products featuring TLM2. Saw the Chevy one online, and then before the movie there was one for a Discover card. That the heck does TLM2 have to do with a credit card? Felt really cheap and frankly trashy from LEGO. Why would this figment of a child's imagination care about a real-world product?



    Saw TLM2 last night. It had some great one-liners but overall didn't resonate with me nearly as much as the first. The plot was clever enough but nowhere near the original. I also found it less visually intetesting with fewer cool builds to admire. It definitely suffered from Lord and Miller not directing. But also not terrible as a sequel. Overall just largely forgettable. There's a few things I hope they make as sets.

    Its the same reason why a Nissan Rogue had no place being in the Star Wars universe. Marketing is what it is and they are shameless at doing it. Maybe that is also another reason why the movie has reportedly opened to less than what was expected numbers.

    That and who wants to go to a movie theater full of kids that are probably going to be out of control, and pay over $30 for tickets and food. I'll wait till I can stream it at home. Yes I'm old, but I like to enjoy my movies in quite.

    ^I'm going to go see it on a weekday morning when mostly older people are at the movies. And not on $5 ticket Tuesday either. I did that once and someone brought a baby to see the movie It!

    I was all alone in the theater when I saw TLBM and it was great.

    I picked up 11 of the minifigures today. I really like the giraffe, crayon, and Benny is my favorite.

    I have an extra Watermelon Suit Guy. If anyone would like to trade drop me a PM.

    Or you could just find it fun and entertaining.  It's just a commercial.  Another way for them to make some money.  It's not like the movie itself was lessened because of that ad.

    @MegtheCat Quite a few theaters run "Baby Day" where patrons are allowed to bring their babies concurrent with $5 Tuesdays - Alamo Drafthouse springs to mind! At least at the Alamo, they would gladly refund ticketholders who didn't realize babies might be at the showing. Those Tuesdays were the only way I could ever see new releases.

    Tying in commercials is smart business for Lego. Commercials end up on YouTube, where they can get played over and over. Geico has lots of ads on YouTube - I think they might make some of them specifically FOR YouTube - and my grandson loves watching them. He has no idea what car insurance is, but the videos make him giggle.

    As long as they don't get into product placement in the actual movies, I'd much rather see a Chevy ad using Lego than another ad for drugs, booze, or politicians.

    'Everything is Awesome' would be an excellent cross-promotion for Xanax or Prozac.

    And the LEGO Chevy Silverado was strategically placed on the workbench in the movie.

    The Lonely Island? Weird choice, but I'm not complaining...
    I'm presuming that Lego won't be releasing a retrospective of their collaborator's old work under the Lego Movie license... The song titles on their own would need several asterisks to cover up the swears.

    I do like 'Jack Sparrow', 'Natalie's Rap', and 'J*** in My Pants' (told you it'd need asterisks)...

    I had a question. What is the Shimmer and Shine Spa set referring to in the movie? Are they appearing in it?

    Nobody is really sure what it refers too, but most people assume it's the scene with the spa, bath, massages, etc.  We don't know who will come with it exactly.  That's our most educated guess as to what that set is.
