We recently featured a load of rumored LEGO sets – more than a hundred fifty to be exact – that are expected to debut in 2017 and covered almost all of LEGO’s active themes and upcoming movies as well. Two of these sets have been unveiled already with the announcement of the LEGO Batman Movie: The Batmobile (70905) and The Joker’s Notorious Lowrider (70906), and if we will take these reported rumors as true, then we can expect plenty more sets to arrive considering that there is a total of 15 expected sets that LEGO will release that will surely make the Caped Crusader beaming with smiles.
Other than the 2 confirmed sets mentioned above, LEGO is still understandably mum on the rest of the LEGO Batman Movie sets. However, LEGO insider Delta Customs may give us some hints on the shape of things to come. He shared several descriptions of these sets over at his Instagram account and credits them to a certain ‘Captain Unicorn’ (now, that’s something that you don’t hear everyday).
First off, is a possible LEGO Batman Movie Arkham Asylum that is expected to retail at around $100. According to Delta Customs, the size of this revamped ‘treatment center’ for Gotham’s criminally deranged villains will be almost as that of its predecessor, the LEGO DC Universe Superheroes Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout (10937) released in 2013. However, this newer version will be based primarily on how the Asylum will be portrayed in the LEGO Batman Movie. What is interesting about the set is its sheer number of villains rendered in their minifigure forms. The rumored LEGO Batman Movie Arkham Asylum will feature a total of 12 minifigures: Batman, Barbara Gordon, Aaron Cash, 2 Arkham Guards, Harleen Quinzel (presumably in her professional outfit), Joker, Two-Face, the Riddler, and three more unnamed villains. The villains in this set are said to be in garbed in Arkham’s jumpsuits.
Next is a newer rendition of the Batcave as we saw it featured in the trailers. The supposedly new LEGO Batman Movie Batcave will particularly boast of with tons details such as the various Bat costumes of the Caped Crusader, a walkway leading to the Batcomputer similar to how it was shown in the official trailer, and an Alfred minifigure. Other highlights of the set include the Batboat and a brick-built duck ride for the Penguin and several of his arctic bird minions similar to that of the Wildlife Photographer as seen from LEGO’s CMF Series 16. The little penguins are seen carrying some attachments on their back.
In addition to this, we’ll be seeing the LEGO Batman Movie Batwing, though this one is different from the one seen in the trailer and is shaped more like a bat. The plane’s cockpit is the head of the bat, and a Poison Ivy minifigure will be included in the set.
Killer Croc is slated to be featured in the movie and he will also have a set dedicated to him. The LEGO Batman Movie Killer Croc Swamp set will feature a big fig version of the reptilian powerhouse, and it is rumored that this bigfig rendition will be as big as that of the Rancor as seen in LEGO Star Wars Rancor Pit 75005. That will be a huge plus point for this set in case this rumor turns out to be true. The Killer Croc Swamp set also comes with a buildable red pick up truck, swamp like builds, including a unique animal skull, and minifigures of Batman, Zebra Man, and Tarantula.
Other tidbits of info that Delta Customs shared about some of the sets also include:
- A Mr. Freeze minifig in an exo-suit, Batman, and a hostage belonging to one of the smaller sets.
- The Penguin will also get ‘a really cool car’, one that will rival Joker’s Notorious Lowrider.
- Plenty of new, random minifigures: Tarantula, Zebra Man, Kite Man, Calendar Man.
- Plenty of vehicles to go around for villains.
It will certainly be great to see these vehicles have their own sets.
In similar news, several sources over at Eurobricks also mention that a Catwoman bike set will also make its appearance and the one which most of us are waiting for, is a complete line up of collectible minifigures dedicated to the LEGO Batman Movie. It is reported to comprise of 20 minifigures instead of the usual 16.
Like any other rumor, we always everyone to bear in mind that these are all predictions and speculations unless the LEGO Group releases their official announcement. However, knowing that there are some folks who usually turn out to be 99% accurate in their predictions surely gives us something to look forward to.
Be sure to keep tabs with the LEGO Batman Movie’s official website for official announcements and other cool stuff. So what do you think about these rumors and predictions?
