We finally have this first look of the third and final installment of this year’s Batman LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes sets. LEGO understandably did not reveal everything at the New York Toy Fair last February so fans can have something to look forward to (and to delightfully speculate about in fan forums) during the next few months. The wait is finally over since we now have our first official set image of LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman: Rescue from Ra’s al Ghul 76056.
Thanks to a tip from Brick Toy News, we found out that Amazon’s Japanese website has already listed 76056 for pre-order, with a projected release date of June 3. As you may have noticed, there is no piece count yet for this set with a price of 6,548 Japanese Yen which is roughly equivalent to $59.57. This is quite high for a set which somehow has a piece count that falls between that of LEGO DC Comics Superheroes Batman: Scarecrow Harvest of Fear 76054 (which is at 563 pieces retailing at $59.99) and of Spider-Man: Ghost Rider Team Up 76058 (217 pieces at $19.99). In fact, Brickset already added Batman: Rescue from Ra’s al Ghul 76056 to its database with a retail price of $39.99.
76056 is a catch in itself considering that we have three new minifigures that comes with it: Talia Al Ghul, Ra’s Al Ghul, and a new brownish tan, Desert Batman. Robin on the other hand, seems to be the same Robin minifigure as seen from LEGO Batman: The Joker Steam Roller 76013 with an additional hood or head piece element. The Ra’s Al Ghul minifig looks very similar to what has been reported to us by just2good a couple of weeks ago. The minifig also seems to be dual sided as seen from the box art.
We hope to see high resolution images of 76056 anytime soon, similar to what we have shown so far for the rest of the 2016 Summer LEGO Super Heroes and Star Wars releases. For now, we are still watching out for the remaining LEGO Super Heroes set that are expected to be released as part of the final wave of summer releases which include the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060), and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Captain America: Civil War Set #4 (76067).
We’ll keep you posted for more updates so be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show.
