LEGO announce a massive "Welcome to Apocalypseburg" set from "The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part"

I don’t know about you guys, but one of my most anticipated films of the year is The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.  Any chance to jump back into the meta, irreverent world of LEGO is a welcome one, thanks in no small part to the fact that it has the best Batman since The Brave and the Bold.

But it’s not just a movie, friends, because we can bring the fun home with us and have our own adventures.  That’s made all the easier with the amazing looking sets the good folks at LEGO have in the works, and today they’ve announced one of the best looking sets I’ve seen in some time: the 3,178 piece Welcome to Apocalypseburg!  This thing is just ridiculous in how huge it is, with a full 360° build that includes a gym, a diner, hideouts, the Statue of Liberty,  and a guy with a chainsaw and a surfboard.  Start saving up your pennies, chums, and check out the details below.
