LEGO revealed 70839 The Rexcelsior as the 21st set in its LEGO Movie 2 lineup today at the London Toy Fair. The set features Rex Dangervest’s ship, The Rexcelsior, and comes with 1,826 pieces, two minifigures, two microfigures, five micro-raptors, and a six-missile rapid blast functionality.
The Rexcelsior will retail for $149.99 US and £139.99 UK, with availability beginning May 1 after the movie hits theaters.
Following the initial wave of sets based on the upcoming sequel and the massive Apocalpseburg we just reviewed, The Rexcelsior is Rex Dangervest’s fist-shaped spaceship that features boosters, dual microfigure cockpit, a detailed microscale interior with opening doors and a handle/trigger to shoot six rapid-fire missiles seen on the lower right of the box.
The Rexcelsior is more than a foot long, and comes with two dark blue and three metallic micro-raptors, utilizing the baby dinosaur element to achieve the microscale perspective. Additional micro-builds include Emmet’s house, a forklift, two interaptors and a dropship. (Full minifigure-scale raptors are included in 70835 Rex’s Rexplorer and 70826 Rex’s Rextreme Offroader, both currently available.)
In terms of minifigures, the microscale spaceship includes Stubble Trouble Emmet and Rex Dangervest. Each comes with dual expressions, the most exciting being the “smeared marker stubble” on Emmet seen in the trailer.
