How great this set is. I am still sifting through all of the new 2019 goodies, but I had to build Emmet's dream home. The box looke so cool that I had to take a long look at the pictures just to decide which to build first. None of the bags are numbered and you get two books to choose from, so you are pretty much locked into opening everything before starting anything. Remember Emmet doesnt build things like a normal master builder would, so it was so much fun to see the crazy ways that he uses parts for a variety of "useless" inventions. I really enjoyed building the house and thank you LEGO for including a huge amount of extra pieces so that anyone can give the house a touch of character. I admit to enjoying the results from the house, that I have ordered another set so I can also have the ship. I have included pictures, and i want to mention that the long build time was honestly having so much fun what i am trying to say about this set is"Everything is Awesome" the three star minifigures and unikitty. All make this a winner.
Was originally going to skip this set, but after seeing the movie I really wanted it. Very glad it includes the warrior kitty room with sleeping warrior kitty. The interior is quaint. Includes portraits of Emmet, Lucy and Unikitty. These are stickers you need to apply to flat tiles. The TV is also a sticker being applied to a flat tile. The "E+L 4 EVA" sign is a printed piece, so that is cool!I do wish they had scaled it slightly bigger. Firstly, for more play room in the interior. Secondly, (and even more important) it is a real miss not having the double-decker porch swing!! Even at this size, It seems like they could have extended the porch a bit to include that.I also found the building of the junk to use up extra pieces to be a bit weird.The build was easy and fun. I prefer to build buildings and let the kids build vehicles. So, it was nice to have a set I could work on myself.
Both options are fun builds, and I really enjoyed putting it together, pulling it apart and rebuilding it into its secondary form. It features heavily in the trailer for TLM2, and as such is relatable, even without seeing the film. If pressed, I think I prefer the Rescue Rocket variation, from both the build and display perspective.
The Emmet, Lucy and Rex Dangervest minifigures can play in the Dreamhouse, or you can rebuild the house into the Rescue Rocket. This two-in-one buildable toy is great for the LEGO fan who loves assembly.

I started out being annoyed by the set and then slightly angry by the totally unnecessary pieces built alongside the Dream House part of the built. These really do feel as if a handful of elements have been thrown together. I understand these parts are needed to create the Rocket Ship, but they could have been incorporated into the main build a little better or I'd rather they were simply left over. I reluctantly rebuilt the Dream House into the alternate built and my annoyance of the set has waned a little, but of all The LEGO Movie 2 sets I've built these is my least favourite.
