Where does he get those wonderful toys? Comic devotees and LEGO fans are in for a treat as the LEGO Group launches its latest Batman-themed set; the show-stopping #76161 LEGO DC Batman 1989 Batwing. Below is the press-release with all the information, pictures, price, and availability.
It may not soar to Gotham city, but the LEGO Group’s latest release with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC, the #76161 LEGO DC Batman 1989 Batwing, is sure to transport fans to their most memorable DC Super Heroes moments. Fans of Batman and avid builders are in for some serious fun as they embark on their journey to construct the ultimate Super Hero vehicle in the LEGO DC Batman collection.
The new LEGO 1989 Batwing draws upon the design seen in Tim Burton’s iconic 1989 Batman film, using the smooth lines and features from the original model to bring an impressive gothic elegance to any LEGO collection. DC and LEGO fans alike can indulge in their passion for the Caped Crusader as they explore all the delightful features of this new set, including a full interior, removable canopy, and poseable aerodynamic flaps. To add to the excitement, the construction kit is also dotted with Easter eggs to surprise builders, such as a screen featuring The Joker’s gas balloons and a ‘Bat Engine’ label on the vehicle’s engine – helping to truly transport builders back to 1989 and into the Batman universe.
Once completed, the 2,363-piece set is a real showstopper, measuring over 4” (11cm) high, 20” (52cm) long, and 22” (58cm) wide. The construction set also features a special brick, which allows builders to mount and display their model on the wall for added impact. The LEGO DC Batman 1989 set is a wonderful addition to a Batman lover’s LEGO collection, joining the previously released #76139 LEGO DC Batman 1989 Batmobile (still available at the Online LEGO Shop) to make a dark and dramatic display in any home.
Speaking about the details of the new set, LEGO Creative Lead Jesper C. Nielsen said: “The emblematic set truly takes fans on a journey, as they immerse themselves into Gotham city and get hands-on with the set, using Batman, The Joker, and Boombox goon minifigures to relive their favorite moments from the film. Fans can even create the infamous scene when The Joker barges in on the Dark Knight and utters his classic words ‘Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?’.”
The new LEGO 1989 Batwing construction set is the latest example of how the LEGO Group aims to inspire builders of all ages to build, rebuild and get excited by the process of creation. A complex and rewarding build, the LEGO 1989 Batwing construction set allows builders to relax as they escape from the real world and enter the Batman universe. Designed for those aged 18+, the new set will also feature the new stylish packaging designed to reflect the sophisticated nature of the creative process.
All new products in the LEGO Group’s ranges that appeal to adults will now feature the sleek, minimalistic new design across related packaging, building instructions, exclusive content, and in-store and online store design.
The #76161 LEGO DC 1989 Batwing will be available for LEGO VIP members from the 21st of October and for remaining LEGO fans from 1st November. Prices are as follows: RRP £179.99, €199.99, $199.99. You can find the set at the LEGO Batman section of the Online LEGO Shop.
