You’ll receive 12 minifigures with the Welcome to Apocalypseburg! set to play with including returning characters Emmet, Lucy, Batman and many more.
The centrepiece of this set is large section of the Statue of Liberty. The Lady Liberty head opens up and features a “chill-out” room and buildable telescope. 3 lookout platforms and a buildable torch round up this fun section.
The base sections consist of a café, Scribble Cop’s office with a chair-kicking function, armory, barber’s/tattoo parlor, Lucy’s hideout, Fuse’s workshop, rooftop diner, gym, spa and more. To help make playing with the set easier select sections can also be removed.
