You probably already saw (or even bought) movie tie-in LEGO sets from The LEGO Batman Movie and you are probably wondering where the hell is the protagonist’s Ultimate Batmobile… well, the answer is, it is coming soon! So I guess it is a ‘yay!’? Maybe? Anyways, according to Market Watch, The Ultimate Batmobile Set is due to hit the shelves this June 1, priced at $129.99. As you can see in the images, the set features the caped crime fighter’s automobile that looks more like a mad scientist’s contraption – complete with oddly colored yellow-tinted cockpit canopies.
But I guess that mad scientist look is attributed by the fact that this batmobile is actually four different vehicles: the Batmobile, Batwing, Bat-Tank and Batcycle. Clearly, it has bit of a Frankenstein-look to it, with a touch of Bat. Anyways, along with the Bat’s ride, the set also comes with rotating Bat-Signal with a LEGO light brick to simulate the projection of the Bat-Signal (though, at this point, we are not sure how you are going to hold it up in midair).
As for the requisite minifigs, there are eight altogether, including Bat, Robin, Batgirl, Polka-Dot Man on a flying disc, the Wicked Witch of the West, a pair of Flying Monkeys, and Alfred Pennyworth in Batsuit who look suspiciously like Kato but with cape, just saying… The vehicle itself is of quite a substantial size, measuring 14 inches long, 6 inches wide and 4 inches tall. At this point, I am going to ask: “are you excited?” Wait. Don’t answer, I will tell you how I feel instead.
Fact: I do look forward to catching the movie and as far as other sets the lego batman movie setswe have seen so far, I am kind of thrilled, but honestly, I am not too sure about this Ultimate Batmobile. I don’t know why. I can’t put a finger on why it is not as appealing. Perhaps it has too much red? Or maybe it was the yellow-tinted canopies? Or maybe, it was the light grey bits. I know it is an animation, but those colors kind of ruin the stealthy look. Maybe that’s just me.
