When you have a hero and a rockstar as big as Batman, better expect the red carpet treatment from LEGO. So before we close the year to watch those fireworks, let’s take a look at more polybags dedicated to the Caped Crusader and his uber cool film. Just when we thought that LEGO has already unloaded enough polybags for us to collect, two additional sets (one accessory and polybag set to be exact) surface and have been shared by Dutch toy store Brickshop, and The Brick Fan respectively. Take a look at these images.
The LEGO Batman Movie Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman (5004928) Keychain Polybag
The LEGO Batman Movie Accessory Pack
Now seriously, I’ve lost count already on how many Batman minifigures are there in the LEGO Batman Movie sets. The Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman comes in as a free promotional from Brickshop for every purchase of any TLBM set from their site, while the Accessory Pack is expected to come as a free gift similar to that of the LEGO Calendar. The Accessory Pack comes in at 41 pieces and also includes the new Batman minifigure with the yellow utility belt, and a newly designed Bat signal.
In case you like to plan ahead (and in this case, I’m very sure you are) on how to display your LEGO Batman Movie CMF, then LEGO has you covered. Brickshop has also listed a Minifigure Display Case to flaunt your collection. It is suitable for 16 minifigs, which is 4 spaces short obviously for the LEGO Batman Movie CMF, and will require and additional modular expansion such as the one below.

The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure Display Case of 16
As it seems, there are other accessories lined up to be released under the LEGO Batman Movie theme similar to how LEGO did it with their first major film aptly titled The LEGO Movie. With all of these offerings slated to hit store shelves at the start of the year, and with more than a hundred sets scheduled to be released under various themes, 2017 is pretty much a big year for LEGO.
So on behalf of Jason, Stephen and Brian and the rest of the Brick Show Team, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Just hours before the clock strikes at midnight to usher in the New Year, LEGO continues to surprise and delight us with these new set images of its fast and furious, LEGO Speed Champions collection. Earlier this month, we had a glimpse of one of its champion speedsters with the 2016 Ford GT & 1966 Ford GT40 (75881). This time, and zooming their way to 2017, we now get to see the rest of these speedsters scaled down to their minifigure sizes. Check out these official images below courtesy of The Brick Fan. The set prices mentioned below are just rough estimates.
Allen over at The Brick Fan was kind enough to give us a sneak peek on some of the pages of one DK’s LEGO themed books, The LEGO Batman Movie: The Essential Guide. This latest offering from Dorling Kindersley promises to give an inside look at ALL of the LEGO sets (including those yet to be announced) used in the animated film, so it is naturally interesting to know what these new vehicles and sets will look like as revealed in the book. The Essential Guide is one of the several books that DK has lined up in celebration of our black and yellow hero’s own film. It is currently available for purchase via Amazon and retails at $12.99. I suggest that you check it out right away if you have plans of purchasing the book since it’s selling out fast. Here’s a complete description of DK’s The LEGO Batman Movie: The Essential Guide.
The perfect companion to LEGO Batman’s first solo movie, The LEGO® Batman™ Movie: The Essential Guide showcases the full range of exciting LEGO Batman sets and minifigures that will be released to tie in with the film’s release. Heroes, villains, vehicles, and locations are all explored in classic DK style, with lively and informative nonfiction text to annotate and expand upon lavish reference images of LEGO Batman sets and scenes from the movie.
These pages from The Essential Guide highlights three LEGO Batman Movie sets that caters to the rogues of the film, plus another vehicle added to the armory of the Caped Crusader’s war machines. As you will notice from the snapshots below, the Black Thunder is described as a modified Batwing as we saw it in the trailer. The build itself is quite impressive, though the predominantly black-colored bricks used in building the set may prove to be quite of a challenge. Included in the same set together with the Black Thunder is Harley Quinn’s cannon truck, with enough firepower loud enough to rival that of the deafening, evil laugh of the villainess. We also get to see Two-Face’s Technic-like wrecking machine which looks quite similar to a LEGO Technic Volvo L350F Wheel Loader (42030).
Aside from being a part-time pizza delivery guy in the Scarecrow Special Delivery (70910), we now see the supervillain with a true ride of his own in his fear gas-equipped Scarecopter. Lastly, we finally get to see what most Batman fans are waiting for. We now get to see Bane in his impressive bigfig form, and a sand buggy kind of a vehicle to go along with it. I strongly feel that fans will probably pick up this set because of the former.
We hope to see more sets officially revealed by LEGO anytime soon now that DK’s The LEGO Batman Movie: The Essential Guide is finally out. Now that we’re just less than two months shy from the film’s theatrical release on February 10, we can’t wait to see those handsome images.
Thanks once again to Allen of The Brick Fan for sharing these snapshots.
What could be better than having Tom Holland play out the latest version of our favorite wall crawler on the big screen? Well, have his minifig counterpart do that instead. This latest brick-built video from Huxley Berg Studios shows that even Tom Holland’s Spider Man still looks good even in plastic bricks. Watch this.
That was absolutely awesome! If you find the bank robbery scene quite hilarious with the Avengers-wanna-be’s being effortlessly knocked out by Spidey, then their minifig versions in this clip had me laughing out loud. It was a clever move for the animators to use the Hulk’s headpiece from his 2012 promotional polybag on one of the robbers.
My first thought was to skip right over to that part where his roommate and friend Ned Leeds (played by Jacob Batalon) mindlessly dropped a completed LEGO Death Star. I was thinking how a massive set such as the Death Star can be rendered in minifig scale relative to the trailer. Well, the result did not disappoint at all. The 6-pack print on Peter Parker’s custom torso was also ridiculously accurate that I find it hilarious.
Even the custom minifig for the Vulture and his flight accessories were brilliantly made. Though it may not seem as big as of what we expect from the two rumored LEGO sets dedicated to the film as mentioned in our previous post, but it does the job of conveying Spidey’s next villain quite well.
These final screenshots are also flawless – nice cinematography on these stop-motion scenes.
If you were impressed (as much I am) with this rendition of Huxley Berg Studios, then check out the rest of their clips over at their YouTube channel. Spider-Man Homecoming (the actual film) is slated to hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
