It’s the start of a new month, and it’s usually the best time for LEGO to make new revelations on what products they’ve teased earlier in the year. For instance, back in February, they previewed several new books on original LEGO themes and licensed franchises courtesy of Dorling Kindersley (DK). One of the books featured then was the LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary. And like many LEGO books, this one has an exclusive minifigure on the cover and we finally know what it is. DK’s LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary exclusive minifigure is none other than the Yellow Lantern Batman.
As revealed by Amazon France, the exclusive minifigure for the Visual Dictionary is Batman with the power of a Yellow Lantern. This version of the otherwise heroic character appeared in the DC Comics line-wide crossover Forever Evil (issue 4), as a member of the Sinsetro Corps. Batman’s hero schtick may have been to put fear in the hearts of evildoers, but this is too extreme. Of course it doesn’t last.
The LEGO DC Super Heroes Visual Dictionary from DK Publishing comes out on September 4. This hardcover volume is priced at$21.99 and is also listed on Amazon US for pre-order. One can avail of the Amazon Pre-Order Price Guarantee to ensure that any price changes for the lower when the book is released means only the lowest price will be paid.
