This blog post is part of a series about the new LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures Series. Thanks to the folks from LEGO for providing us a box of Minifigures that we sent to 9 creative toy photographers to review for the blog.
Movies, Tales and a Confession
Here’s a confession I need to get off my chest: Although “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” is surely one of the sweetest melodies I have ever heard, I’d never seen the movie “The Wizard Of Oz” until recently. I hadn’t even read the book. And to be dead honest: I didn’t even know what the story was all about!
Of course, I knew the main characters: Dorothy and her dog Toto, the Tinman, the Scarecrow and the Lion. But what on earth were they doing together in this land called Oz? And why couldn’t I remember an image oft he Wizard himself?
Hadn’t it been for LEGO to include (most) of all of the above characters in their latest series of collectible mini figures (CMF) I’d probably never have found
Modern Times Like These
As we’re lucky enough to be living in modern times, fortunately, I didn’t have to wait for another screening of the film at a local movie theater. I simply went online, ordered a BluRay player (the DVD machine had given up quite some time ago) and a copy of The Wizard Of Oz.

They promised Unikitty to take her along to the movie as she’s also part of new series and was very nervous to see the LEGO Movie 2! Are you, too? Then off you go and find out whether DUPLO is as vicious as the movie trailers made us think….
A Non-Belgian living in Hamburg, Germany. Curiosity-driven and mostly to be found on tiny adventures and great journeys.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen the original movie completely, only bits of it. But it’s a bit like Dickens’ Christmas Carol, one of those stories I never read the original book but still know because it’s just everywhere in Movies and Series.
I wonder how involved they will be in the LEGO Movie 2…
Guessing by now you know- and I still don’t. It’s raining cats and dogs here so the perfect day to find out!
