Scribble Cop’s Office

While Scribble Cop does make a brief appearance in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, the audience does not get to see his workplace. Despite giving up his dual nature, it seems his penchant for picking chair remains – his office, at the base of the wrecked statue, features a chair-kicking function. It’s one way for Apocalypseburg’s law enforcer to let out pent up frustration, even if not the healthiest.

Lookout tower

Right inside Lady Liberty’s head is a lookout tower, that does not appear in the film but is accessible in 70840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg. It includes a telescope, allowing the residents to watch out for DUPLO invaders, a map for noting down enemy sightings and space for a minifigure to sleep, should they need to spend the night on watch duty.

One of the most striking designs in The LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Batman Movie was the Dark Knight’s new ride, 70905 The Batmobile.

While there are a few references to the events of The LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Batman Movie, the characters from The LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at NINJAGO Movie do not show up in The LEGO Movie 2. That does not mean that the film or its setting does not exist, as 70840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg demonstrates. A tired looking poster advertises NINJAGO City as a tourist destination, offering some nice synergy between the various films in the series.

Fast food joint

Is a hot dog about the shape, or the texture? Apparently the shape, as this bun contains a metal spear rather than a sausage. Clearly it is more appetising than the egg that Green Lantern is ignoring. The film doesn’t visit this location, with the only eatery in Apocalypseburg shown on screen being the one Emmet had constructed below his new house.
