The minifigures

Photo of Melting Room

Besides the models, the big sticking point for The LEGO Movie sets is obviously the minifigures. For a set at this price, it’s interesting to see there are three included.
As with Friends minidolls, Wyldstyle’s head wear is wrapped in plastic because it’s a rubbery part, incorporating both the hood and fringe.

Pictured from left to right: Emmet (the hero of the movie), Robo SWAT and Wyldstyle (the lead female). Both Robo SWAT and hooded Wyldstyle are unique to this set, so if you’re a minifigure collector it’s one reason to put this set on your list.
You can see that all the minifigures have back as well as leg printing, and only Wyldstyle has arm printing.

Both Emmet and Wyldstyle have double-sided heads, with the rear-facing print being adequately covered by their head wear. There’s almost no distinction between Wyldstyle’s expressions except for her eyebrows, giving the impression she’s the dominant character.

In fact, she’s about to save Emmet from impending doom yet again, by being handy with the hatchet.
