LEGO just officially announced a brand new direct-to-consumer set at the Time to Play Holiday Showcase in New York City and via online media outlets. The #70922 LEGO Batman Movie The Joker’s Manor will be available via official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop on Black Friday, November 24th. Details below. 🙂

The Joker Manor is packed with iconic details from the movie and cool functions, including a rollercoaster encircling the whole building, a huge buildable The Joker head with trapdoor and slide, punching boxing gloves, a rocking ‘The Joker’ sign and rotating ‘big eye’ tower. The interior includes a cinema room with a romantic DVD element, kitchen with buildable microwave plus lobster and lemon-slice decorated tile elements, living room with a buildable grand piano, fireplace and bust, swimming pool room, and a music studio with guitar element and buildable mixing desk and loudspeakers. Build this magnificent manor and then recreate your favorite scenes from the movie with 10 included minifigures. The Joker Manor measures over 21” (55cm) high, 25” (66cm) wide and 10” (27cm) deep.

You will be able to get the set at official LEGO retail stores and under The LEGO Batman Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
It is interesting that this set pretty much came out of the blue. There were no leaks or even rumors about it. I guess LEGO fans have been too preoccupied with all the other recent large LEGO releases, like the #75192 LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon, the #21310 LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store, and all the awesome sets related to The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Nonetheless, the #70922 LEGO Batman Movie The Joker’s Manor looks whimsical and very fun, and perfect for recreating some of the most memorable scenes from The LEGO Batman Movie. Below are a few additional pictures of the interior.
What do you think? How do you like the #70922 LEGO Batman Movie The Joker’s Manor? Is this a set you are interested to get? Or are you saving up for one of the other large sets that were released this year? Which one is your favorite set so far from the two LEGO films this year?
