A few days ago, we reported that the LEGO Batman Movie theme gets a new set that is the perfect ride for the Bat Family. The LEGO Batman Movie Ultimate Batmobile (70917) is certainly a must have for the serious TLBM collector. Though the image first posted by Market Watch is pretty neat in itself, especially considering the various minifigures that go along with it, the question in everyone’s mind is how the individual vehicles look like.
A recent post on Reddit has revealed how the set looks like when Batman’s Batmobile, Robin’s Batcycle, Batgirl’s Batwing and Alfred’s Bat-Tank are all built individually. The image seems to have been taken from a book or catalogue of some kind. Take a look.
If you will notice, it seems that the set requires each of the four vehicles to be built first before combining them in a Megazord-type like of combination. The Batwing can be folded and be placed on top of the Batmobile while the Bat-Tank and Batcycle is placed at the back, giving the set an impressive length of 14 inches. The individual vehicles are cool on their own, especially Alfred’s Bat-Tank with its firepower and ammunitions. This version of the Batmobile is in a league of its own with its prominent black and red (and yellow) color scheme. What I found humorous is how Robin’s TLBM minifig version looks so goofy (perhaps because of his goggles) riding on his tough-looking Batcycle. It’s not a big issue though, since this is how The LEGO Batman Movie is supposed to be with all of LEGO’s brand of awesome humor written all over it.
The Ultimate Batmobile (70917) is expected to retail at $129 and will be released on the first week of June.
