LEGO Movie Lord Business 70809 Glue Tube

LOVE the 9volt battery and krazy  glue tube (stickers not applied)

  • Price (less than ten cents per piece)
  • Great minifigures (many are exclusive)
  • Interesting building techniques (fun to build)
  • Good play value for young ones (set depicts several different areas of Lord Business' Lair even if they are very simplified and small versions of each
  • LOVE the 9volt battery, glue tube, couch, kragle entrance area and table with chairs

  • Lord Business' Lair is depicted with several "mini" versions of different scenes... keeps price low but it would have been much more impressive if each had been expanded (for the price LEGO design team did an amazing job)
Great set for both children and collectors 

If I were planning to purchase most of the figures AND a few sets for young ones to play with... This is a great one. I would buy this one because it has so many play features for young ones AND includes so many exclusive figures. I would purchase other must have sets (depending upon the child preference) and then buy figures that are still missing from collection from 3rd party vendors (Ebay, Bricklink and Amazon). The other sets that I would probably have to purchase for young ones to play along with this set would be 70808 Super Cycle Chase (awesome vehicles for play with Wyldstyle and Robo SWAT villains), and 70802 Bad Cop Pursuit (Bad Cop's cool car). Of course their are other minor characters in other sets that they may want to add to the collection but Lord Business Evil Lair, Super Cycle Chase and Bad Cop Pursuit is a great starting point.

Cheapest way to purchase many different exclusive minifigures. Lord Business (full build), El Macho Wrestler, Pa Cop, Ma Cop are exclusive to this set. Biznis Kitty is a variant (only available in this set) and so is Vitruvius. Emmet is the only character that is not an exclusive or exclusive variant. I've read that another version of Vitruvius will be available either as an exclusive polybag offer or as part of a promotional DVD or BluRay deal.
