It looks like LEGO is revving up its marketing for its next big film The LEGO Movie 2 as we inch closer towards the end of the year. After a month of inactivity, the film’s social media channels are now up and running again with several teasers that they posted during the past three days. Other than the usual roster of characters such as WyldStyle and Emmet who were prominently shown in the film’s official trailer, we still need to see more details on some of the movie’s prominent characters. Earlier in September, you may recall that LEGO gave us our first look at Batman’s Apocalypseburg swag with the new Wasteland Batman minifigure. This new rendition of Batman is definitely impressive, giving a sort of Mad Max vibe to the Dark Knight’s usual garb.
Thanks to two most recent posts from the LEGO Movie 2’s official Twitter page, we can now have a closer look at the Wasteland Batman minifigure, and some of the hidden features of this much-awaited minifig. Check the following post below.

And just in time for Halloween, LEGO seems to be giving us more hints on this new Batman costume. What is particularly interesting is the new torso print beneath the rugged, wasteland look as can be seen from the film’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) greetings.

Staying true with the film’s apocalyptic version of Bricksburg, other than the rugged new armor, the new Wasteland Batman minifigure also comes with a worn-out sleeveless shirt underneath secured by a brown body strap across his torso. It also looks like that this new minifig rendition comes with arm prints that resemble arm or elbow guards.
If this on-screen version of Batman turns out to be a physical minifigure, then I will not be surprised to see that this is perhaps one of the best minifigure versions of Batman in recent years. And if LEGO intends to create this air of exclusivity for the Wasteland Batman minifigure, then it will not be a wild guess to consider that LEGO might opt to include this in just one particular set. With 15 or more LEGO Movie 2 sets to be revealed on top of the first wave of sets shown last July, I am particularly excited to see what set the Wasteland Batman minifigure will be included.
What do you think about this latest LEGO version of Batman? Do you think it is worthwhile to add another space for the Wasteland Batman in your minifigure collection? Let us know in the comments below.
