It has been known for quite some time that the next series of Collectible LEGO Minifigures will be based on The LEGO Batman Movie. And sure enough, right before Thanksgiving LEGO revealed on their Facebook page the 20 characters that will be in The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures Series. So let’s talk about this. 🙂
As you see, five of the minifigs in series are batsuits. Clan of the Cave Batman wears a caveman outfit, brown cowl and cape. Fairy Batman is super funny with a pink ballerina skirt and the rare fairy-wing piece in a new color. Glam Metal Batman is probably the most striking of them all (and suspiciously looking like a member of KISS) with a gorgeously printed cowl, electric guitar, cape, and re-colored shoulder-armor. Lobster-Loving Batman comes with a new lobster, which will be a very welcome addition to beach and underwater scenes. Finally, Vacation Batman wears a unique cowl with swimming-goggles and the very first LEGO rubber ducky! I’m sure that all of these Batman suits are going to be favorite collectors’ items. I will also include Catman here as another cowled character (with the new utility belt!), although Batman may not be happy about it.
Other characters in The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures Series include Commissioner Gordon, Barbara Gordon, Dick Grayson (Robin’s original identity) carrying a shark-repellent, and Arkham Asylum Joker. Barbara’s new police cap/hair combination will be useful for other female police officers.
Pink Power Batgirl comes with a new hairpiece and re-colored skirt, Nurse Harley Quinn got that really awesome new hairpiece, and a girl named Mime who commits crimes dressed as a mime. Grifter and escort March Harriett wears her iconic rabbit outfit.
Calculator, Eraser, Zodiac Master, Red Hood, King Tut and Orca are the final six in The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures Series. All of them come with some really excellent new pieces, or re-colors of old pieces that would be interesting both for collectors and customizers.
The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures Series is scheduled for release on January 1st, 2017, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they appear at various retailers before the end of the year. Also, remember that there will be a whole selection of regular sets for The LEGO Batman Movie, some of them are already available at retail stores and at The LEGO Batman Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
