[Toy Fair 2017] LEGO Batman 70917 The Ultimate Batmobile

2017-02-18 04.21.58

 

70917 The Ultimate Batmobile. We saw this before, but our close up look at it. Interesting that they broke down the minifigs with their vehicles on the box. Also, biggest thing to note is that the Batsignal actually lights up in the set. Full batch of pictures below the fold.

Target Stores Host LEGO Batman Movie Event This Saturday February 18

target-batman-event

Just when you thought you were done with store events, they pull you back in. Target stores nationwide will be hosting a LEGO Batman Movie-themed event this Saturday February 18th from 10am to 1pm. The event is a scavenger hunt where participants can get a free sticker sheet and poster while supplies last. Event is at all Target stores except Target Express locations. Meh, not the most thrilling event but it’ll keep the kids busy for a while if you’re looking for something to do this weekend.

ReBrick Hosts Best of Batman Building Contest

batman-contest

The fine folks over at ReBrick are hosting a LEGO Batman-themed building contest with some pretty impressive prizes. You can build against three different categories giving you three chances to win: vehicles, venues or locations, and super villain accessories. The deadline to submit your entry is March 10th 2017 at 10:00AM EST. You’ll need a LEGO.com account to enter. More rules can be found on the Best of Batman contest page. The prizes are pretty nice and include autographed plates from some of the voice actors from The LEGO Batman Movie:

– 70907 Killer Croc™ Tail-Gator
– 70908 The Scuttler
– 70911 The Penguin™ Arctic Roller
– 70912 Arkham Asylum
– Exclusive plate with Batgirl™ Minifigure and Rosario Dawson’s autograph
– Exclusive plate with Robin™ Minifigure and Michael Cera’s autograph
– Exclusive plate with Alfred™ Minifigure and Ralph Fiennes’ autograph
– A behind the scenes artbook, signed by the LEGO designers
– An exclusive winner’s brick certificate

I guess Will Arnett was not available to autograph a plate.

LEGOLAND California Offers Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman Keychain Free With Purchase

batman-kiss-kiss

I was at LEGOLAND California this weekend and lo’ and behold at the Big Shop, they were offering the Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman keychain polybag set for free with purchase. The signage said $75 in The LEGO Batman Movie sets were required to qualify, but at the counter the nice gentleman clarified that the threshold was just $55. Offer is good while supplies last, obviously. One other noteworthy thing to mention about that was a 10% discount on all purchases made before 12:00pm which I wasn’t aware that they offered before. It, unfortunately, does not stack with the passholder discount but for those of you in the area, this might be a nice way to get the keychain without being subjected to aftermarket prices. I am unsure if this deal is offered at other LEGOLAND parks or Discovery Centers, but it’s worth a phone call to find out.

Batman Movie Set Sales, Impressions (and Spoilers) Below the Fold

batman movie

So, I’m going to try and get a full-featured review for this moving, and use it as an excuse to go see it again, I think. But first, I figured I’d give us a spoileriffic thread to discuss the movie in, and also mix in some early impressions of how the movies line up with the sets we’ve gotten so far. So, obviously, below the fold, there will be some mild spoilers.

However, before that, there are several sets that are currently on sale for the movie. Almost all sets available on Amazon have some sort of discount, and Walmart has Scarecrow Special Delivery on rollback.
