Trivia

The minifigure used to represent Green Lantern was never released in any retail Lego Set. The figure was given out with raffles at New York Comic-Con and San Diego Comic-Con in 2011 to coincide with the re-release of Lego Superheroes. The figure is one of the most expensive Lego minifigures on the market. The figure was also given out at the same events as the Comic-Con exclusive Batman suit, which is seen hanging in the Batcave as an alternate suit for Will Arnett's Batman in The LEGO Batman Movie (2017).

The Lego Movie is a unique and very refreshing animated film!
7 February 2014 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Lego Movie is a winner on several levels. There is a good amount of clever gags and I was constantly bursting with laughter. I was surprised by how it contained so many memorable cameos, pop icons and film references, providing a strong nostalgia factor to older viewers. The playful approach towards movie clichés made it a really enjoyable and refreshing watch. The animation is absolutely stunning and the blend of CGI with stop motion worked brilliantly. Everything can be attachable, making the vibe of each scenario feel very unique and unlike anything you've ever seen. The Lego Movie has plenty of heart too by the end of the journey and it's going to be really tough for another animated film to surpass its inventiveness and charm.
