The second wave of The LEGO Batman Movie sets were released just a few days ago, including a couple of sets that I would consider some of the best Batman-related official LEGO models of all time. There are five sets in the collection, and they are full of interesting details and play-features. I think Batman would be proud. I will share some of my thoughts on the sets, and I have also included video-reviews by JANGBRiCKS, so you can check out all the details and functions. So let’s take a look. 🙂
➡ #70913 LEGO BATMAN MOVIE SCARECROW FEARFUL FACE-OFF: This is the smallest amongst the summer sets, but it comes with some interesting parts and two great minifigures. I especially like that the set offers an additional module to the power plant that we have gotten parts of in the #70900 LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Balloon Escape, the #70901 LEGO Batman Movie Mr. Freeze Ice Attack, and the #70910 LEGO Batman Movie Scarecrow Special Delivery. And it’s also nice to be able to get Scarecrow in an inexpensive set. Here is the official description: Team up with Batman to stop Scarecrow spreading fear in this action-packed The LEGO Batman Movie set. The Gyro-Copter features 2 spinning rotors, an adjustable rudder and 2 bomb-drop functions to drop the included fear gas bomb elements. Attach Batman’s jetpack with Batwings and adjustable boosters, and arm him with the grappling gun to role-play an aerial battle. The set also features a power plant mini build with an explode function for added jeopardy. Includes 2 minifigures: Scarecrow and Batman. 141 pieces. Price: $14.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #70914 LEGO BATMAN MOVIE BANE TOXIC TRUCK ATTACK: The obvious main attraction of this set is Bane himself, as this is the first time we get a bigfig version of the character. The second main attraction is of course Bane’s cool looking and fully armed orange truck. Here is the official description: Stop Bane and Mutant Leader’s toxic attacks with Batman in this exciting The LEGO Batman Movie set, including Bane’s Toxic Truck, Batman’s Whirly-Bat flyer and a toxic waste mini-build with explode function. The 6-wheel truck features rear 4-wheel suspension and a mounted 6-stud rapid shooter and detachable toxic tank element. Toxic Truck measures over 4” (11cm) high, 6” (17cm) long and 3” (9cm) wide. Includes 2 minifigures: Batman and Mutant Leader, plus a Bane big figure. 366 pieces. Price: $49.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #70915 LEGO BATMAN MOVIE TWO-FACE DOUBLE DEMOLITION: An armed-to-the-teeth tractor? Yeah, sure, bring it on! Yes, there is also Batman and the Batcycle, but it’s really the excavator that’s the star here. I could very well see this vehicle in all kinds of post-apocalyptic settings! Here is the official description: Stop the mighty Two-Face Excavator with Batman’s Batcycle in this thrilling The LEGO Batman Movie set. The Two-Face Excavator has a minifigure cabin, operational excavator arm and bucket, articulated design for smooth steering. It might look like a normal digger from one side, but check out the ‘bad side’ featuring spikes on the huge wheels and a 6-stud rapid shooter. The Batcycle features an opening minifigure cockpit, rotating double stud shooter and rotating flick missile shooter. Two-Face Excavator measures over 4” (12cm) high, 11” (29cm) long and 5” (15cm) wide. Includes 4 minifigures: Batman, Two-Face and two GCPD officers. 564 pieces. Price: $59.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #70916 LEGO BATMAN MOVIE THE BATWING: This is one of the sleekest sets in The LEGO Batman Movie collection, featuring an extra-large Batwing with a sharp design, great color-scheme, and extra cool transformational features. The vehicle is also quite swooshable, if you want to fly it around. It’s also worth noting that the windshield is a printed piece, and could be used for other applications (like spaceships!). Here is the official description: Fly high above Gotham City in the Batwing and battle against Harley Quinn with Batman and Robin in this cool The LEGO Batman Movie set. The Batwing features an opening dual minifigure cockpit for Batman and Robin, rotating boosters, adjustable wings for flight and landing modes, 2 spring-loaded shooters, 2 disc shooters and an opening rear compartment with a car inside. Harley Quinn has a mobile cannon with a 6-stud rapid shooter. Batwing measures over 5” (15cm) high, 12” (31cm) long and 18” (48cm) wide in flight mode, and over 3” (9cm) high, 12” (31cm) long and 20” (53cm) wide in landing mode. Includes 3 minifigures: Batman, Robin and Harley Quinn. 1053 pieces: Price: $89.99 BUY HERE
➡ #70917 LEGO BATMAN MOVIE THE ULTIMATE BATMOBILE: This set features the biggest, baddest, ultimate vehicle for Batman; the Ultimate Batmobile. It’s basically the black version of the #70816 LEGO Movie Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! (because Batman only works in black and sometimes very-very dark gray). The Batmobile can be split into four separate vehicles for the ultimate battle scene. I highly recommend checking out the video-review on this one, as the features are very interesting. Here is the official description: Team up with The LEGO Batman Movie characters Batman, Batgirl, Robin and Alfred Pennyworth (in Batsuit) to give the Super-Villains quadruple trouble with The Ultimate Batmobile! This amazing model divides into 4 separate vehicles: the Batmobile, Batwing, Bat-Tank and Batcycle. The Batmobile features foldout boosters and 4 stud shooters, while the Batwing has foldout wings and 2 spring-loaded shooters. The Batcycle has foldable wheels and the heavily-armored Bat-Tank boasts 2 hidden 6-stud rapid shooters. The Ultimate Batmobile measures over 4” (12cm) high, 14” (37cm) long and 6” (16cm) wide. The set also includes the rotating Bat-Signal with a LEGO light brick, Polka-Dot Man’s flying disc, plus 8 minifigures: Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Polka-Dot Man, Alfred Pennyworth (in Batsuit), Wicked Witch of the West and two Flying Monkeys. 1456 pieces. Price: $139.99 – BUY HERE
In the video-player below you can find reviews of all five sets by JANGBRRiCKS. You can watch them one after another, or use the drop-down list in the upper left-hand corner to select the review you would like to see.
If you are a Batman fan, and you can only get one set from this wave, I would highly recommend the #70917 LEGO Batman Movie The Ultimate Batmobile. It is probably the best version of the Batmobile LEGO ever released. It looks excellent, and is jam-packed with play-features. It’s really the Ultimate Batmobile in every way. If you can get two sets, pair the Batmobile with the #70916 LEGO Batman Movie Batwing, and you will have two of the best Batman vehicles of the entire collection. The smaller sets are also nice, but I wouldn’t consider them essential, unless you are looking for very specific parts or minifigures. Remember that the #70914 Lego Batman Movie Bane Toxic Truck Attack, is the only set with a large version of Bane, so you might be interested in that set as well. You can find all five sets, along with the previous releases, under The LEGO Batman Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
