Today’s set, 5004930 Accessory Pack, is chock full of goodies promoting The LEGO Batman Movie. There’s only one thing in this set that really stands out from the rest. But I’ll save the best for last and show you what else comes in this packed polybag.
There’s a double-sided poster. One for the good guys.
And one for the bad guys. The poster measure 11″x17″ and comes folded for obvious reasons.
There’s a sticker sheet. Every graphic you see is a sticker, including the “LEGO Batman Movie” logo at the top.
You get a Batman minifig with a Batarang. It’s an obvious, no-brainer inclusion. There’s nothing special about him but who wouldn’t like getting Batman in minifig form?
And finally, the real star of the show, is the Batsignal. I’ve seen slash built a couple of Batsignals from various sets or promotions, but none have been as substantial as this one. It’s taller than a minifig. It swivels on the turntable base and tilts on Technic friction pins with axle. It feels weighty and solid.
There’s a 2×2 round tile with a Batman logo in the middle. Presumably, this is where the light is supposed to shine through. Now THAT would be the only thing that could make this set even better, is a working light through some kind of transparent tile with a Batman logo on it.
Does It Suck or Does It Rock?
This set rocks! There’s a lot of goodies packed in this one polybag that I think kids would love: the poster, the stickers, a Batman minifigure. For me, it’s all about that awesome Batsignal. This polybag could have just been that and it would have been just as great. The other stuff is nice and all but a bit distracting from what I consider the real meat of the set. You can plop this baby right on top of any Modular Building and it would just look awesome! I’ve always fancied the idea of making a Batman chess set. And if I ever did, this is the Batsignal I would use for the rooks.
There’s no sponsor this week, and with sponsorships lasting a whole week, you can get plenty of exposure for mere pennies. Pennies I say! Want to sponsor a review? Send me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org or hit me up on discord of the polybag set you have that you want me to review. If selected, in exchange for the set you’ll get a mention right here in the review post and a link to your website or social media account or just about anything else. Nearly free advertising, so what’s stopping you?
