Some action hero names just exude attitude and coolness.  Like, you hear the name “Joseph Dredd” or “John Matrix” and you just know that this is a guy who’s seen some things and can mess up some bad guys. 

In The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, we will be introduced to a new generation of hero with a ridiculous/cool/ridiculously cool name: Rex Dangervest.

I just heard an eagle screeching in the distance. 

Rex will be voiced by Chris Pratt, who also voices The LEGO Movie’s livable hero Emmett, and this dual role is great because it plays with both of Pratt’s screen personas: Emmet is a lovable doofus like Andy Dwyer, and Rex is a parody of Pratt’s action hero roles like Star-Lord, Owen Grady, and Burt Macklin.

The good people at LEGO have just reealed a brand new set that highlights both Rex Dangervest’s coolness and his taste in vehicles for interplanetary travel: the appropriately and amazingly named The Rexcelsior.  The massive set comes with pieces to build the titular ship, along with minifigs of Rex and Emmet (complete with Sharpie®️ stubble), as well as microfigures of the duo and five raptors.  Dinosaurs and spaceships?  Best.  Set.  Ever.

Check out the details below.
