Amazon France is being hailed as a champ in LEGO circles right now. They’ve already pulled a hat trick with their advance reveals yesterday and early today of new summer 2018 set reveals for no less than three of LEGO’s own product lines: LEGO Creator, LEGO Ninjago and LEGO Friends.
Now, Amazon France is going 4 for 4 with another wave of 2018 official LEGO set reveals, and this time it’s for one of their major licensed franchise, LEGO DC Comics. It also doesn’t take a genius to guess that these two new sets feature the Dark Knight himself: Batman.
The two Batman-themed summer releases for LEGO DC Comics are Attack of the Talons (76110) and Brother Eye Takedown (76111). Both are based on the Dark Knight’s struggles with two fairly recent threats from his comic-book rogues’ gallery: the Talons of the Court of Owls and the Brother Eye satellite.
Attack of the Talons (76110) sees LEGO Batman take to the streets on his Bat-Tricycle, putting the hurt on the Talon assassins of Gotham City’s Court of Owls secret society with the help of his canine crime-fighting partner Ace the Bat-Hound. The Talons are heavily armed but so is Batman.
Next on the list is Brother Eye Takedown (76111) where the Dark Knight faces his very own Skynet, Brother Eye: an AI over-mind reverse-engineered from Superman foe Brainiac (13) in a killer-sat body commanding the meta-human-hunting OMAC units. Batman has a new Bat-plane for the mission, with Bat-woman joining in.
Aside from these two sets, there’s also the App-Controlled Batmobile (76112) first mentioned at the Nuremberg Toy Fair earlier this year. There’s no photos for this one yet though, so for now, enjoy the first peek of its immediate predecessors which are now listed on Amazon France. Kudos to them.
