There has been some buzz going around certain LEGO fan forums since last October hinting on the possibility that the exclusive minifigure to be offered by Dorling Kindersley (DK) on its upcoming book title, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Character Encyclopedia will be the much rumored ‘Buccaneer Batman’. Though just2good, the guy responsible for dropping the bombshell did not mention any details nor the source of his info, he seems to be utterly convinced about it.
Now with the recent digital HD release of another direct-to-video LEGO movie, “LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash”, there might be some grain of truth on what just2good was so adamant about. For those who have ordered a digital copy of this latest LEGO movie last February 9, they might notice something of an Easter egg on one of the scenes. This is when the DC heroes travelled back in time where Batman was found wearing the ‘right’ costume for the job. Here are some snapshots that TheBrickFan.com and French-based website, Brickheroes.com just shared with us. You may want to turn on your browser’s translator if you want to read the rest of the page.
Again, it is wise not to jump to any conclusions at this time and we simply have to take things with a grain of salt. Recent developments may lead us to conclude that this will be the next Batman minifig, but truth be told it is all but speculations at this point. So for now, we just have to wait until we get our hands on DK’s latest LEGO book.
