Considering the themes of the movie, that significance as a powerful role model for girls was probably a bigger factor than her political stances. Additionally, my brother pointed out on Facebook that with a Systar System wedding hinted at in some teasers, the writers might have been specifically looking for a well-known female judge to officiate.
And honestly, a sense of out-of-nowhere randomness is part of what makes LEGO Movie cameo characters so fun, whether or not they’re well known. The LEGO Batman Movie certainly banked on that with many of its more obscure villains.
I also think that for fans of Rex Dangervest or his faction's aesthetic, there could be a lot of people who hope to get both, rather than choose between the two. I mean, If we were getting two Classic Space spaceships at that price point I doubt we'd be seeing as many people pitting the two against one another.
Great... now I'll be day dreaming about a whole fleet of classic space ships coming...
That it includes Stubble Emmett (with smeared stubble dots for his alt expression!) is no small selling point for me. I can't wait to get this one!
Some reviews had 4 of one figure and 2 of another, I just hope mine is equally split with 3 complete sets.
On a related note, the Benny Space Squad is still missing from all the local shops. People keep snapping it up the moment someone posted sightings of it.
Would love to have a Ruth Ginsburg minifigure.
Look's like the McDonalds Happy Meal toys are keychain heads. They open up with various junk inside.
I guess they are just doubling down on a lot of people becoming Rex Dangervest fans. I do hope his printed R energy drink cans go on B&P for a reasonable price. I need a vending machine of those in my Ninjago City expansions.
If there is one though, it had better be good to make me care about it lol.
Everything is political. Everything we do, every day, from the time we get out of bed until we go to sleep at night... is an expression of our personal political stance. 'Politics' isn't some seperate, ethereal 'other' debated by the men and women in seats of power. It's the collective expression of how we live our daily lives. What we are able to achieve, and what is held outside our grasp.
Wishing that 'politics' are witheld from entertainment is merely an expression of entitlement. You're essentially saying "I'm satisfied with the status quo, and don't care to hear about your misfortune whilst I'm being amused".
You don't have to agree with her opinions (nor, it would seem, the entire message of the film) to be entertained. I watch all sorts of films that feature views that I don't share, and I am still entertained. /soapbox, ;p
I also wouldn't characterize Abraham Lincoln's appearance in TLM as pushing some overt political agenda. My guess is that RBG's appearance in TLM2 is part of a random punchline. The joke probably isn't as funny if you feature Sotomayor, Kagan or other much lesser known Justices. To someone else's point, Judge Judy would probably be funnier, but she'd probably want an appearance fee.
Anyway, for ^ and ^^^^^, let's not overreact. You're looking for a political message where it may not exist.
