This one came out of nowhere, really. Just when you think that LEGO is now getting ready to put TLBM sets inside the vault, now comes a new polybag that I strongly feel will be highly sought after. Just before New Year’s Day, Hoth Bricks managed to acquire an image of the latest TLBM polybag that will be released anytime soon.
The LEGO Batman Movie The Mini Ultimate Batmobile (30526) polybag, as the name suggests, is a smaller replica of the larger Ultimate Batmobile (70917) set released last year. The cool thing about this polybag version is that it managed to replicate not just the Ultimate Batmobile itself, but also three out of four vehicles that made it up: the Batmobile itself, Bat-Tank, and Bat-Wing. Unfortunately, there is no provision for the Bat-Cycle.
Another difference with this polybag version as compared to its larger sibling is that it only allows you to make each of the vehicle at a time, unlike the larger set which divides into four separate vehicles including the Bat-Cycle. This is somehow expected from a polybag at this scale since it is only slightly larger from The Mini Batmobile (30521) polybag.
What I also find particularly interesting is the use of the striking red rims (Front Wheel Casing 3x4x1 2/3 #8 6186110) on this build which can only be found in Lightning McQueen as is seen in the latest LEGO Juniors Cars 3 sets. There is no word yet on when and where this latest TLBM polybag will be released, but I’m sure it will be a popular hit among TLBM fans.
A hat tip once more to Hoth Bricks for sharing this info.
