How so? The Tumbler is the only really memorable piece of machinery or whatnot that I can think of from the films- most of the imagery that I remember from Batman either comes from the comics or the 90's animated series.
I agree with you Flynn, and for me, I wasn't much of a fan of the Tumbler when I first saw it. I'm used to Batman driving race car like vehicles, not tanks.
The Tumbler has grown on me and I did pick up the LEGO Tumbler set, although at the time I mostly got it for Joker's Ice Cream truck.
The main reason I'm not to thrilled for this first wave of sets is because most of them are rehashes of previous Batman sets that I already have.
That's probably the reason I was so excited about Joker's Funhouse set, because it is somewhat a villan's hideout (don't even get me started on the Riddler and Bane's Hideout set from the previous Batman sets) and is an entirely new set.
That's also why I'm excited for the Superman set, because it is completely new with all new figures.
I'm just hoping that the next DC wave will have a lot more new heroes and villans, that's what I'm waiting for.
I wonder if they'll make a head piece similar to the new Darth Maul's for Flash's head wings or just print them on a regular minifig head.
I have the new Darth Maul minifig and I don't particularly care for the new head cap, it makes the head look to long and the gap between the cap and the head is distracting.
Of course it probably doesn't help that the tattoo printing on the face and cap don't line up on my Darth Maul. I don't think Flash's minfig would have that problem since most of his head is red except for the eyes and mouth areas.
