LEGO’s minifigure renditions of Batman are known to be the most diverse line of minifigures for any single character ever created by LEGO. With more than 30 LEGO variations of the Caped Crusader, it is definitely a daunting task to determine which is the cream of the crop among them, or simply the best of the best. If ever Batman is faced with the perennial OOTD (Outfit Of The Day) question, then we definitely understand his dilemma. To help the Dark Knight, Stephen shares his thoughts on the top 5 LEGO Batman minifigures of all time, including his reasons for choosing them. Watch this.
First off, we have several Honorable Mentions, LEGO Batman minifigs that are good in themselves, but failed to make it to the final cut. These are:
2014 Batman with Dark Bluish Gray Suit
This minifigure comes with the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman: The Riddler Chase (76012)
2006 Batman with Light Bluish Gray Suit
This LEGO version of Batman comes together with several LEGO Batman sets including the LEGO Batman – The Batman Dragster: Catwoman Pursuit (7779); LEGO Batman – The Batboat: Hunt for Killer Croc (7780) and LEGO Batman – The Batwing: The Joker’s Aerial Assault (7782).
2012 Batman With Wings and Jetpack
Batman comes in a blue and gray color scheme, with dark blue colored wings as seen in the LEGO DC Universe Catwoman Catcycle City Chase (6858) set.
With that being said, le’ts now take a closer look at Stephen’s top 5 Batman minifigs and on what LEGO sets we can find them. Some of these might be retired sets already so if you’re missing out on any one of them, or you can’t find them anymore at shop.LEGO.com, doing a quick search over at eBay will probably do the trick.
#5 – The 2013 Dark Knight Version
This rendition of the Dark Knight is based on the Dark Knight Trilogy released by LEGO last 2013. Specifically, this minifigure is included in the retired LEGO DC Universe Super Heroes – The Bat VS Bane: Tumbler Chase (76001)
#4 – The 2013 Arctic Batman
Batman comes in his white, polar suit in this arctic version of the Caped Crusader. With an all-white cape and cowl, this arctic ready Batman is exclusively included with the retired LEGO DC Universe Super Heroes – Arctic Batman VS Mr. Freeze: Aquaman On Ice (76000).
#3 – 2013 Dark suited Batman With Black Wings
Similar to his gray and blue winged counterpart, this airborne Batman is also rendered with a pair of black wings suited as he rounds up the five of the most notorious villains in Gotham. This black winged Batman is exclusively found in LEGO DC Universe Super Heroes – Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout (10937).
#2 – 2014 Dark Knight Batman and 2016 Armored Batman
On the 2nd top spot comes a two-way tie as Stephen noticeably finds it hard not to consider these two candidates. First, we have the 2014 version of Batman straight from the Dark Knight Trilogy, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – The Tumbler (76023). This minifig version highlights an all-black color scheme for Batman, equipped with a copper-colored utility belt, with excellent details on the torso piece.
On the same spot comes the 2016 Armored Batman as seen in the movie, Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice. This epic showdown between the Son of Krypton and the Bat of Gotham is captured in the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Clash of the Heroes (76044), where Batman comes in an exclusive armored suit.
And the number one spot goes to…
#1 – The 2016 Classic TV Series Batman
The iconic Batman from the Classic TV Series during the 1960s makes a comeback as LEGO releases the mammoth sized LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Batman Classic TV Series: Batcave (76052). Coming in at 2,526 this set features an exclusive set of minifigures only found in this build. The Batman Classic TV Series minifigure highlights the old school, but definitely cool looks of the Caped Crusader more than 50 years ago, which includes a bluish gray color scheme that sports the classic, yellow Batman logo. I guess nothing beats the classic.
So there we have it – our Top 5 LEGO Batman Minifigure, handpicked and reviewed by Stephen. How about you, what is your fave Batman minifig? Share us your thoughts in the comments section below.
