Cloud Cuckoo Palace: a building set based on a key scene in the film. The set features Emmett, Wyldstyle, and a villain named Executron. But the real highlight here is a never-before-seen character named Uni-Kitty, who’s voiced by “Community” and “Mad Men” star Alison Brie. How Uni-Kitty fits into the plot remains to be seen, but if the building set is any indication, her role is definitely a colorful one.  The Cloud Cuckoo Palace, which will cost about $20.
