The Suit Makes The Bat

Postby Staff » Tue May 27, 2014 10:56 am


lego-batman3-beyond-gotham-costumes


LEGO followed up the announcement of Batman 3: Beyond Gotham with another stab at the not so old chestnut, we've quickly grown to love, pointing out that the bat does indeed have a sometimes wonderfully colourful wardrobe. If this is a sampling of the suits we'll get to play in the new game, that gives even more hope to getting the newly unveiled space batsuit as well as this sweet version of the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh. Since they are the only unproduced suits in the poster, it's not too unlikely.

A trip to Zur-En-Arrh fits with the theme of Brainiac shrinking worlds for his collection, he probably keeps the cities in his basement where no one can touch them. The video below is from DC All Access and gives a tiny bit of insight on the new game, it also drops a new villain who I'm assuming will be a big fig and mentions alternate suits or many characters, including one that will let Cyborg transform into... a washing machine. Yes please.

Sounds oddly similar to some of the plot points for DC Universe online, where it's basically "Everyone vs. Braniac"
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.

Was wondering when this was coming out since they ended Batman 2 with that clip of Brainiac. Like that the JL will have to team up with the Legion of Doom but wish they would stop the Batman focus.

I'll probably be pre-ordering this game because I'm sure there will be some exclusive figure to come with it. I was going to guess the space suit Batman, but since a Bat-rocket is mentioned, I'm assuming there will probably be a Bat-rocket set with space suit Batman, so not sure who the pre-order fig will be.

The pic of Batman and Robin in the Batcave appears to have the suit from Batman v Superman movie. Also noticed in the trailer Superman has the MoS, BvS (I'm assuming they won't change his outfit) and Wonder Woman is in her New 52 outfit.

Makes me glad I picked up another of the Power Armor Lex sets to get another classic Superman and Wonder Woman.

Also noticed in the Joker/Lex pick that Lex is wearing the armor of the LEGO Batman 2 pre-order fig but it has a new 1x1 round tile with the power armor insignia. Hope they don't re-issue him with the new tile because the only reason I pre-ordered LEGO Batman 2 was to get an exclusive power armor Lex.

This the box art that's been running around...

Course, if Lego wants to get all of the AFOL dollars, the pre-order bonus for this should be Green Lantern. Because even though I am just absolutely terrible at these games, I'd buy a copy for that.

I am PSYCHED for this. If it's as good as LMS it will be amazing.
And on the front of minifigs....unfortunately my best guess would be Space Batman. If not him Braniac would make sense, much as I want Green Lantern and Cyborg (plus that sweet new Wonder Woman)....
Side note, I really wish that Lexcorp 1x1 round tile came with the Lex Luthor promofig....
Side note #2, Cyborg was in Lego Batman 2 too....

I'm waiting for them to announce the exclusive figure will be Batman in a Green Lantern suit. And then confirm no actual Green Lantern will be produced.

Huh. In the picture with Batman and Robin in the Batcave, Batman's mask looks more like Nite Owl than Batman.

I'm thinking it's based on this:

Anyone commented on the fact that Batman looks to have a new cowl? Sans chin part and with what looks like shorter ears. I wonder if it's in preparation for the short-eared "Dawn of Justice" sets.

yea looks like a new cowl. I do hope they would stop focusing all their resources on redesigning characters that have already been released and spent those resources on making ones that are not released yet.

I'm fairly certain that Supes and that Batman screenshot you're talking about are both in New 52 attire. The bat logo isn't fat enough for BVS, and he's got completely grey legs (no black pants) and Superman is definitely New 52 (red belt)

Yes! :lol:

Which will lead to the inevitable Batman versus Predator versus Aliens versus Terminator versus Robocop. I can't wait.

I preferred Superman vs. Aliens. Still have those sitting in storage somewhere in my garage. Worth nothing, but fun to read.

Why not simply call it "LEGO DC Super Heroes"? Without Batman in the title, it wouldn't sell I guess?

'zactly. Joe and Jane public don't really care about DC or Marvel, they only know about the players, don't have an appreciation for the Universe to which the characters belong. I see a bunch of Batman T-shirts on the street - are they fans? Sure, but no one reads the comic-books. Heck, even I don't read the comic-books anymore, and I used to visit the comic-book store weekly.

I bet there are people out there over the age of 8, honestly wondering why there's not a Spiderman versus Batman movie, because, dang, that would be good. :facepalm:

Changing the name would mean that Lego would have to acknowledge that there are heroes in that universe other than Batman who would be more than capable of carrying a set.
