LEGO Batman 3 DLC Packs Revealed

Check out that mask! DLC packs have been revealed for LEGO Batman 3. The first three packs are The Dark Knight Pack, Man of Steel Pack, and Batman 75th Pack. The pack details are below:

The Dark Knight Pack
Experience the heart-pounding chase scene from the iconic film complete with cool vehicles and explosive action. Play as the legendary Dark Knight and Commissioner Gordon, as well as the Joker and his goons as they chase down Harvey Dent’s police escort. Bane and Catwoman from the third film are also playable.

Man of Steel Pack
Help Jor-El, his wife Lara and their robot Kelex send the infant Superman “Kal-el” into space towards the safety of Earth as Krypton falls into chaos. Find a way inside Jor-El’s home, fight General Zod’s invading forces and battle against Zod himself to save Superman.

Batman 75th Pack
Play as Joker and Harley, setting up a variety of celebration set pieces. Be the Batman and play as some of the most iconic faces of Batman through the years, including his first appearance in Detective Comics #27.

The three packs listed above will be available on launch day of the game, November 11th, with another three planned for a later date. Each pack has new characters, missions, and “customizations”, whatever that may be. Each pack is $2.99 with a Season Pass for all of the DLC costing $14.99, essentially netting you one for free. The DLC has been confirmed for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Unfortunately there has been no confirmation on availability for Wii U which is rather surprising given how well the game does on the family-friendly platform.

Pre-order the game from Gamestop to get an exclusive bonus of a Plastic Man minifigure.

Thanks to Tohst for the heads up.

Jor El Minifigure Now Available

Jor-El-promo

LEGO Shop@Home has a promotion for most of the month of June where you can get a Jor El promotional minifigure. Now I don’t know if in the movie Jor El’s outfit is actually darker than Superman, but he came out much darker than the promo image and even the package art. See pic below. Anyways, from now until June 25th, just head on over to LEGO Shop@Home or a LEGO Brand Retail location and make a purchase of at least $75. Tiny Russell Crowe will automatically be added to your cart for free! Not only that but you’ll also score free shipping! That’s right, all orders of $75 or more will receive free standard shipping.

And speaking of free shipping, LEGO Shop@Home will now offer free shipping on all orders of $75 or more FOREVER! No expiration date and no code required.

Details on 5001623 Jor-El Polybag, June In Store Events

June Store Calendar Page 1

Some details have emerged about obtaining the Jor-El minifig we reported on earlier this week. This post on Eurobricks shows the June store calendar with Jor-El displayed as one of the highlighted items. It will be a LEGO Brand Retail promotion and the only way to get it is to make a purchase in store or at LEGO Shop@Home for $75 or more. There’s nothing listed about the purchase requiring Super Heroes sets, so any purchase should net you the minifigure. Offer is good from June 1-25 or while supplies last.

There is one other item of interest on the calendar. On Wednesday June 19, they will be hosting a special in-store building event where you can build the Man of Steel. This is in addition to their regular Monthly Mini Build. Build event is open to kids age 6-14 only and limited to approximately 150 per store.

And finally, on Friday June 22, the monthly LEGO Club meeting will be DC Super Heroes themed.

Surprise! Jor-El Polybag Pops Up On eBay

Jor-El Polybag pops up on eBay

It sort of came out of no where, but a Man of Steel promotional polybag isn’t really shocking. It’s yet another figure to pop up on eBay ahead of release and I think it’s a bit pricey for a figure that includes the same El family underwear that comes in every Man of Steel set. Works out to about 50 bucks for a new bearded head print. At least it’s a nice beard.

We’ll keep you posted on when and how this one will be released.

“A Sentimental Replica Of A Planet Long Since Vanished”

Fortress of Solitude

That’s how Zod described Superman’s Fortress of Solitude in the second movie and it’s quite true if a bit cold. ZeeMasterBrick has built this stark and stunning monument and even gone so far as to have a custom Jor-El made to accompany his own minifigs in capturing some movie moments. It’s such an eye-catching version of the last house of El, that I had to post it right away instead of banishing it to my queue of builds “to blog”. I’m so behind…
