A couple of days ago Warner Brothers released the latest trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive from Batman fans and LEGO fans alike. The film is scheduled for release on February 10th 2017, and so far this is the fourth trailer related to the movie (see links to previous trailers at the end of this post). In addition, a couple of more of the upcoming sets were also revealed, so there is a lot of excitement about those as well. So let’s talk about all this awesomeness. 🙂
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Watch below.
As you can see, this is going to be a hilarious film that both adults and kids can enjoy, and many people are already saying it might be the best – or at least one of the best – Batman movies ever made. It certainly looks like a good candidate! The animation, the voice actors, the story, the humor, and all those Batvehicles and Batcostumes are just perfect! Unfortunately there are still a few more months before we can see the movie, but in the meantime we can take a look at the LEGO sets upcoming LEGO sets.
There is going to be a whole collection of sets based on The LEGO Batman Movie, just like we have previously seen with The LEGO Movie. So far LEGO revealed pictures of six of the new sets. We have discussed some of them already, but for the sake of completeness, I’m going to list all of them here again, along with some of the newly announced sets.
➡ #70900 LEGO BATMAN MOVIE – THE JOKER BALLOON ESCAPE: This is a small set with Batman and The Joker, who got an awesome balloon-operated contraption on his back. Batman wears the new yellow utility-belt, which many LEGO fans are looking forward to. Then there is a dangerous looking storage-tank with a timer, dynamite, some controls, and those sweet new macaroni-bricks to create the red pipes. I’m already very fond on this small set, and the price is excellent. 124 pieces. Price: $14.99

FREEZE ICE ATTACK: Help Batman defend the Gotham Energy Facility from Mr. Freeze’s Exosuit assault and save the security guard from the ice prison in The LEGO Batman Movie: Mr. Freeze Ice Attack set.

➡ #70905 LEGO BATMAN MOVIE – THE BATMOBILE: The set comes with Batman, Robin, Man-Bat, and the Kabuki Twins. I love Robin’s goggles attached to his hairpiece! The Batmobile itself is quite interesting with red highlights, and a new translucent-yellow windscreen that LEGO Classic Space fans will be very happy about. 581 pieces. Price: $59.99
➡ #70906 LEGO BATMAN MOVIE – THE JOKER NOTORIOUS LOWRIDER: Here we get The Joker, Batgirl, and Harley Quinn. All three minifigures are amazingly detailed and include some new pieces.
