The Double Decker Couch would’ve been an awesome LEGO set with just the minifigures but LEGO isn’t stopping there. Also included in this set is Emmet’s car, a faithful recreation of Emmet’s tiny automobile that he uses to drive around Bricksburg.
I think the timing of the Double Decker Couch’s release date is brilliant – allow a period of exclusivity to certain minifigures so collectors feel great about themselves, then BOOM, release a set that’s at an extremely low price point stuffed with all the characters that were previously out of reach of people with average, non-crazy LEGO budgets. It’s a win for parents, cause their kids can finally get Benny in a cheap set, and a win for us LEGO fans that love sets which contain amazing value.
This small but very significant touch just emphasises the incredible value of the Double Decker Couch. I need to find another word for value.
Final thoughts: I’ll come right out and say it – this is pretty much the perfect LEGO set. The minifigure lineup is second to none and if you enjoyed The LEGO Movie, this set is a no-brainer since you get so many unique minifigures and great characters. The Double Decker Couch’s price point is almost too good to be true – $25 for this much value is almost unheard of.
