The first Lego Movie introduced us to Bricksburg, an idyllic cityscape where everything was awesome. The sequel, Lego Movie 2, might be a little grittier. Arriving on January 16 the $300, 3,178 piece Lego Apocalypseburg set is awesome too in a darker way. The shattered remains of Lady Liberty serves as the centerpiece to the most impressive Lego movie set. Around her are a series of rooms and storefronts that reflect the darker turn the world has taken. There’s a rooftop diner, a spa, a barber/tattoo shop and a gym. Lucy gets her own special headquarters, while Scribble Cop has his own office. There’s a coffee shop, but it’s called Coffee Unchained to fit the theme.
