LEGO 1989 Batmobile Press-Release

Today, the LEGO Group announces the arrival of a very exciting new set, the #76139 LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the iconic film. The set will be available starting on Black Friday weekend. Below is the press-release, set description, pictures, and more. Enjoy!

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s iconic Batman movie with the incredible 1989 Batmobile launching on Black Friday. The Batmobile comes packed full of authentic features from the classic 1989 movie.

The 1989 Batmobile is built from over 3,300 pieces, measuring over 60cm long and sits on a rotating display plate. The sleek design makes this set a highly rewarding build that is perfect for displaying at home. This LEGO set includes three new-for-2019 minifigures: Batman with a new and unique cape, The Joker with a new face and torso decoration, and Vicki Vale featuring a brand new torso and legs.

The 1989 Batmobile comes with a new-for-2019 wraparound windshield element, and decorative grappling hooks on both sides of the vehicle. Place the Batman minifigure into the car by opening the slide-open cockpit before turning the car’s turbine exhaust to make the two machine guns hidden under the hood pop up. The Batmobile comes with detailed Bat emblems on the wheel trim, and a set of specially designed tires for the front wheels.

The 1989 Batmobile is launching as part of LEGO Black Friday event and those who purchase the set between the 29th of November and the 5th of December will receive an exclusive mini replica of the original model as a free gift available in limited quantities.

The 1989 Batmobile comes with a rotating display stand, with an attached information plate detailing the cars statistics for easy viewing and a brick built minifigure display stand for the three minifigures.

    This would pair up with the Tumbler really well. I love the shaping of the back, and isn’t this is the first time they are releasing a plastic cape?

  • Martin November 7, 2019, 11:31 AM

    Well, that’s a beauty for sure! The cockpit is my favorite part. I assume they are using stickers?

    • admin November 7, 2019, 3:16 PM

      Some are printed, some are stickers. The cockpit decorations are stickers, except for the emblem on the steering wheel.

    Well, there goes my Christmas budget…. seriously cool set. They nailed those curves, especially at the back.

  • Legostuff14 November 7, 2019, 11:57 AM

    I love me some Batman, but , I already have my Christmas list on circulation right at the moment. Maybe next year sometime. I also like to wait past the Lego craze on new sets that just have come out theses past months. Everybody is going to want it and so the hunt will be challenging in some cases. I follow the path of the Jedi and be patient. I waited on the Lego 2 movie sets and I got it half price right now. It is tempting though.

      How did you get them half off?!? Please share.

    • jabber-baby-wocky November 7, 2019, 2:20 PM

      One issue with this approach is that you can miss out on exclusives. There is a mini version of the Batmobile that will be available only the first few days after release. If you don’t care for it, then it doesn’t matter, but I’m certain collectors will want it. It’s a nice set.

      • The Other Mark November 7, 2019, 2:40 PM

        I’m worried about how fast that freebie is going to sell out. I expect a major website meltdown. Are new sets always available at midnight? Admin?

        • brickmaster November 7, 2019, 3:08 PM

          New sets usually go on sale at midnight EST. The release is black friday weekend. Espect it to be a madhouse. Good luck with getting your orders through.

        • admin November 7, 2019, 3:15 PM

          Yes, midnight EST. And yes, the website may or may not cooperate. Also remember that if you want to redeem VIP points, you will have to get a voucher first.

    It’s blocky compared to the real thing, but it’s still beautiful and instantly recognizable. They did an especially good job in the cockpit and the back. I assume this is not minifig scale.

  • Legostuff14 November 7, 2019, 3:48 PM

    Hey, Dave. I found them on Amazon. I got the rex’ s explorer for $ 69.99 and Emmet’s dream house/ rescue rocket for about $30. ( or more I can’t remember). There has also been clearance prices at Barnes & Nobles. I’ve pretty much buy the expensive sets that are on sale on Amazon after it’s been out for a while. This is why it isn’t always wise to get the sets right when they first come out unless you really ,really want it now. ( for birthday gift or for a Christmas gift).

    • Dave November 8, 2019, 10:23 AM

      Thanks for sharing!

  • SergeiS November 7, 2019, 10:34 PM

    Why are they releasing so many great sets? My bank account is not happy! Seriously, this is probably the most amazing batmobile ever.

  • gid617 November 8, 2019, 9:11 AM

    I’m not even a fan of Batman but this is a pretty cool batmobile. 😀

  • legofan November 8, 2019, 9:42 AM

    “I only work in black, and sometimes very-very dark gray.” I don’t know if I will get it or not, but it’s a very cool set.

  • Rob November 8, 2019, 4:20 PM

    Very nice model, but since I’m not that big of a Batman fan… Oh, but I’d love to buy the bonus little Batmobile separately and put that into my Lego city.
