New sets for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part tease new characters, vehicles, and hilarity

Everything is awesome, especially since we've got your first look at the tie-in playsets for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The good news is that there are plenty of sets to keep you busy until the effects of the Kragle (aka Krazy Glue) wear off.

You've got the classics like Batman (voiced by Will Arnett), Emmett (voiced by Chris Pratt), and Wyldstyle (voiced by Elizabeth Banks), but the upcoming releases also tease plenty of new characters, too, like Rex Dangervest (also voiced by Pratt) and Queen Wateva Wa'Nabi (voiced by Tiffany Haddish). 

Rex is meant to be a spoof of Pratt's most famous roles, Owen Grady (Jurassic World), a velociraptor behaviorist known for his stylish vests; Star-Lord (Guardians of the Galaxy), an intrepid space hero; and Joshua Faraday (The Magnificent Seven), a lightning fast gunslinger.

LEGO describes Rex as "an ultra-cool tough guy flying through space in his own over-the-top battleship, the Rexcelsior, with his raptor crew." In other words, Rex is the anti-Emmett, confident and experienced, and unlike Emmett, he's a Master Breaker, not a Master Builder. To that end, he invented the "deconstructinator punch" and believes that he invented the phrase "no regrets."

Queen Watevra rules over the far flung Systar System and can shapeshift into anything you can think of, from a volcano, to a butterfly, to a rocket ship. She's also got a secret plan that might just save the entire LEGO universe. If you stand in her way, though, just get ready for her to convince you with a catchy song and dance number.

Even for the returning faces, you can expect to see some cool new vehicles and hilarious new allies (aside from Rex and Queen Watevra, that is). For instance, Benny, the spaceship crazed astronaut from the 1980s, isn't the only one of his kind. In the sequel, he'll be getting his very own "Space Squad," comprised of similar-minded (and similar-looking) space travelers of differing colors. 

Then there's "Emmett's Thricycle," "Battle-Ready Batman and Metal Beard," and "Unikitty's Sweetest Friends." Check out the box art for all four sets below...
