[Toy Fair 2017] The LEGO Batman Movie

Postby Staff » Sat Feb 18, 2017 5:42 am

2017-02-18 04.30.11

Of course, there are several more sets to come for the LEGO Batman Movie (and hopefully they keep that up for awhile, so many possibilities). All of these sets are scheduled to hit stores on June 1st, so start saving your quarters.



70916 The Batwing (SRP of $89.99, 1053 Pieces)

Wings look to be articulated, it's got a whole lot of parts, Harley gets her proper hammer (and a cannon), and Robin gets a go-kart. That all seems to add up to some win in my book.

70915 Two-Face Double Demolition (SRP $59.99, 564 Pieces)

2017-02-18 04.33.32

Two-Face was the biggest villain omission from the initial lineup, at least outside of his Arkham jumpsuit. Lando gets no respect. Also, the inside of the scoop may be the new champion for worst sticker placement in a set...

70914 Bane Toxic Truck Attack (SRP $49.99, 366 Pieces)

2017-02-18 04.41.25

The villains not named Joker, Bane probably had the most lines (in that he had a couple), but they worked, given that they made fun of the Dark Knight Rises version very well while capturing the look of the comics. Bigfig Bane is a welcome addition to my rogues gallery...

70913 Scarecrow Fearful Face-Off (SRP $14.99, 141 Pieces)

2017-02-18 04.42.59

I wonder why Scarecrow is relegated to small sets in the movie stuff? He doesn't look that different from the Super Heroes Combine set at first glance, just a better color choice for the hat. Still, a few different things to like in the set, like getting those flag/wings in brown.

Well, the inclusion of what appears to be Mutant Leader from Dark Knight Returns in the Bane set may be the oddest villain pick in The LEGO Batman Movie.

He also showed up in Batman TAS as well, and was in the movie for a bit when Bane was talking.
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.

True, but a quick glance suggests his TAS appearance (technically The New Batman Adventures) was an episode directly homaging Dark Knight Returns, which still makes his appearance in the movie very odd. It's one thing for the rogues gallery to be referencing oft-forgotten Silver Age villains and '66 characters, and another to reference a Batman story reknowned for how unrelentingly dark it is.

Though, the film did have a pretty explicit call-out to Killing Joke as well, so I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised.

I mean, as the most renowned post-Crisis comic after Watchmen it's almost too famous not to mention. Find me a proper overview of the magical girl genre that doesn't mention Cutie Honey and Majokko Megu-chan.
