The LEGO Movie 2 Rex's Rexplorer! Review (LEGO)

The LEGO Movie 2 Rex's Rexplorer!
What It Is

Help Rex and Emmet battle the Plantimals when you build The LEGO Movie 2 Rex's Rexplorer! This construction set includes 1,187 pieces, so it's going to take awhile to build. But it's pretty impressive once complete. You get to build the spaceship explorer of new character Rex. Its got two cockpits, one of which breaks away to become a separate speeder. The speeder has two stud shooters, while the larger Rexplorer has two stud shooters and two spring-loaded shooters. Open up the sides to reveal space for storing weapons or just sitting and chilling. The back also opens up so you can unload the cargo.

To pilot the ship, you get a new-for-January-2019 Emmet minifigure, a Rex minifigure, and two raptor figures. Both of the minifigures have two facial expressions easily changed by rotating the heads. There is an extra dual stud shooter that can be mounted to one of the raptors or the raptor skateboard. 

You also get to build two Plantimals, one of which has a trap function. Press its head to activate its arms and capture a raptor or minifigure.

Is It Fun?

This is an impressive set that fans of the new movie will want to build and collect. It's got fun details that help kids play out the movie's action and a brand-new Emmet minifigure that collectors will definitely want to have.
