Marketwatch has lifted the curtain off a new LEGO Batman Movie set – the aptly named, 70917 The Ultimate Batmobile.
70917 will be priced at US$129.99 and has a release date of 1 June 2017, when the second wave of LEGO Batman sets goes on sale.
This gargantuan Batmobile certainly looks like its worthy of its “Ultimate” title. It looks to be a sick mashup of several Batvehicles, and can divide itself into four vehicles – the Batmobile, Batwing, Bat-Tank and Batcycle.
The set also includes a respectable cast of 8 minifigures including Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Polka-Dot Man on a flying disc, Alfred Pennyworth (in Batsuit), Wicked Witch of the West and two Flying Monkeys.
I’m really excited about this set and it looks just looks massive. It’s creative and I can’t wait to see how it separates itself. Also equally as hyped for Polka Dot Man and the Flying Monkeys.
Well it has happened. As the LEGO Batman Movie premiered across the world this week, it made sense for LEGO to reveal this on opening weekend. This was kept fairly under wraps.. so I guess this is a spoiler for all of us here in Australia and New Zealand? #SameBatTimeAusNZ
I mean… it would’ve been great to have been able to see this on-screen for the first time, rather than a rather low-res photo from Marketwatch. Thanks Village Roadshow.
Anyway, this set looks amazing and the pricepoint is actually pretty decent! This is instantly going on my must-buy list for the LEGO Batman Movie. Let me know what you think of this set in the comments!
