I just saw these, too. I don’t think I’ve been quite so underwhelmed by a whole line of LEGO sets in a long time. I get that Batman builds in black, and that The Batman is not going to be a very cartoonish incarnation, but these are all just very meh to me. The Batcave has some cool play features, and I’m curious to see how the movie represents this whole “Wayne Terminus” thing, but it feels like part of a larger set, with large chunky pieces to scale it up with a lower piece count (yet still $80!). I can’t help but wonder if there’s a big ol’ Wayne Manor set coming that might have too many spoilers to release prior to the flick.
I feel like if they do do that it’s not gonna be tied to the Batman and instead be a celebration of the character like what they did with Spider-Man A few months back
Well, I guess I want both. LEGO has had a DC Comics license for ages (compared to Marvel licensing which all was secondhand through movies and TV shows) and we’ve gotten three different Batcave sets (not to mention The LEGO Batman Movie version, the 60 TV version, 2 Juniors sets, and 3 DUPLO sets) but no Wayne Manor. There’s tons of (huge) MOCs that people have done, but nothing with that office set playable feel. I’m just thinking that this “Batcave” set feels like it’s meant to attach to a Wayne Manor, maybe, and that would be a long time coming.
But, yeah, a proper comic style WM would be even better. And now that you’ve brought up the Bugle, give me a Daily Planet and a Temple of Aphrodite to complete the architectural trinity. I was hoping there’d be another comic book cover set “exclusive” to FanDome, but now I will be happy with a Bugle scale announcement. (Though it seems they might just be promoting the big ol’ Tumbler set as a FanDome thing…)
They’re pretty decent designs. Nothing mind blowing, but they suit the theme/movie pretty well.
Only complaint is that the Batcave set seems pretty unreasonably over priced. Almost 14 cents per piece is crazy high and none of the other sets seem to have that issue. Maybe because they’re new mini figs, but even then there doesn’t seem to be any custom/new pieces. Just new prints. I don’t know, probably some weird licensing thing.
I noticed that too. Doesn’t seem to add up. Most of those look like stickers, too, at least in the promo art. Maybe it’s the hidden cost of the secret decoder plastic from 1955.
Definitely possible. Could also have to do with pieces that aren’t used much/not available in bulk from their current supply. Either way, I don’t think the build itself justifies that kind of cost. It’s cool, but not much displayability for me at 80.
Probably a ton of fun to play with if you’re a kid tho.
Yesssss I’m super excited they all look super cool it’s gonna be hard for me to pick my favorite to get!
Look awesome, can’t wait to see the movie on my Birthday, finally I get a Batman movie on a Birthday to watch at a movie theater!
i cant wait to pick these up my self these all look great
True it would be amazing to see a daily planet and temple of aphrodite
but i would take the manor if it gets released gonna be saving up for that
finger crossed those three will come out
