LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Mech VS. Poison Ivy Mech (76117) Revealed

Earlier today, LEGO has announced a new DC Comics-inspired set which will debut at San Diego Comic Con slated for next month. It has been part of LEGO’s tradition to reveal a superhero-inspired set during the yearly SDCC, and the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Mech VS. Poison Ivy Mech (76117) is our first set to premiere exclusively at the famed comic book convention. However, be aware that this particular LEGO set 76117 and SDCC exclusive, will only be available for purchase after six months, and will retail for $39.99 coming in at 375 pieces.

The LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Mech vs. Poison Ivy Mech (76117) features two battle mech builds that speaks well of the characters that pilot them. The Batman Mech comes in as minifigure scaled build, equipped with an array of armaments typical from the Dark Knight. The Poison Ivy Mech comes in as a smaller build with posable branch arms equipped with stud shooters. The set also includes four minifigures: Batman, Poison Ivy, The Flash and a new Firefly minifig. Though the other 3 LEGO DC Comics minifigures were already included in past LEGO sets, it is interesting to note that they all come with variations for this newer one. Perhaps the most noticeable is the new minifigure of The Flash which now comes with dual-molded legs.

 

 

Here are the rest of the details for the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Mech vs. Poison Ivy Mech (76117).  We also expect that LEGO will also reveal another Marvel-themed set which will be exhibited during the SDCC so stay tuned.
