Here Are More Details About the LEGO Batman Movie Ultimate Batmobile 70917.

A few days ago, we reported that the LEGO Batman Movie theme gets a new set that is the perfect ride for the Bat Family. The LEGO Batman Movie Ultimate Batmobile (70917) is certainly a must have for the serious TLBM collector. Though the image first posted by Market Watch is pretty neat in itself, especially considering the various minifigures that go along with it, the question in everyone’s mind is how the individual vehicles look like.

A recent post on Reddit has revealed how the set looks like when Batman’s Batmobile, Robin’s Batcycle, Batgirl’s Batwing and Alfred’s Bat-Tank are all built individually. The image seems to have been taken from a book or catalogue of some kind. Take a look.

If you will notice, it seems that the set requires each of the four vehicles to be built first before combining them in a Megazord-type like of combination. The Batwing can be folded and be placed on top of the Batmobile while the Bat-Tank and Batcycle is placed at the back, giving the set an impressive length of 14 inches. The individual vehicles are cool on their own, especially Alfred’s Bat-Tank with its firepower and ammunitions. This version of the Batmobile is in a league of its own with its prominent black and red (and yellow) color scheme. What I found humorous is how Robin’s TLBM minifig version looks so goofy (perhaps because of his goggles) riding on his tough-looking Batcycle. It’s not a big issue though, since this is how The LEGO Batman Movie is supposed to be with all of LEGO’s brand of awesome humor written all over it.

The Ultimate Batmobile (70917) is expected to retail at $129 and will be released on the first week of June.

The LEGO Batman Movie Batgirl Polybag 30612 Is A Target Exclusive.

The LEGO Batman Movie is still going strong in theaters both in the US and across the globe, and that means we can still expect some bit of treats and surprises from LEGO in the form of another polybag promotion. Brickset has posted a rather grainy image of the Batgirl minifigure polybag (30612) and now we might have an idea on how to get it.

If you noticed, Rosario Dawson’s crime-fighting femme fatale in minifig form is available in three TLBM different sets: Catwoman Catcyle Chase (70902), The Joker Notorious Lowrider (70906), and The Ultimate Batmobile (70917). LEGO’s latest polybag offering under the theme is virtually identical with all these minifigure version of the Batgirl.

So what makes the polybag exceptional in its own right? As pointed out by Minifigure Price Guide, the LEGO Batman Movie Batgirl polybag features a headpiece with a different facial expression. Though it’s hard to notice it based on the polybag image above, the set itself is already listed under LEGO’s replacement service.

I know for most of you, this promotional may be a bit underwhelming if you have already fancied yourself of buying any of the sets that were mentioned above, but if you have a bad case of TLBM fever specially after seeing the film, then you will be glad to know that this Batgirl polybag may come as a freebie bundled with the Blu-Ray/DVD/HD home version of The LEGO Batman Movie, which will be exclusively offered at Target stores as reported by The Brick Fan. The site posted an image to support that gives a hint on the promotional.

We don’t know yet when the film will be out in DVD and Blu-ray (perhaps sometime in June?), but a listing on Target’s website already offers The LEGO Batman Movie for pre-order, while Best Buy offers it at $19.99 for the DVD and $24.99 for Blu-ray and Digital HD. Since most of us will probably add TLBM in our video collection, it is surely nice if LEGO will reconsider throwing in the Batgirl minifigure polybag along with other retailers.

First Images of the LEGO BrickHeadz Pirates of the Caribbean Surfaces Online!

Disney’s upcoming adventure-in-the-high seas franchise is set off to sail once more this spring with its fifth film, Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales. With LEGO poised to offer another direct-to-consumer set (rumored to be Salazar’s ghost ship, the ghastly Silent Mary) to celebrate the release of the film, it seems that TLG is adding more buzz to the film by including two of the main characters in the POTC franchise in its latest collectible sets. Thanks to an eBay post, we now have a clear idea on what’s next with the LEGO BrickHeadz line.

As you can see, at the back of the box of the Belle and Beast LEGO BrickHeadz are images of two additional Disney characters in their collectible brick-built versions: Captain Jack Sparrow (41593) and Captain Armando Salazar (41594), both of which are numbered 9 and 10 respectively. According to just2good from Eurobricks who pointed out the eBay listing, it is expected that this two new sets will retail at the same price of $9.99 same as that of the other LEGO BrickHeadz sets. The release date is rumored to be in April along side with the release of the D2C set that was mentioned earlier.

 

So what do you think ye brick mateys? Will you fancy yourself with this booty?

 

 

The LEGO Batman Movie Ultimate Batmobile 70917 Revealed!

Everything is awesome today for LEGO fans with the release of The LEGO Batman Movie in theaters all across the globe. When you thought things couldn’t get better, Market Watch has exclusively revealed the Bat Team’s most imposing ride yet. We already have a hint before on how this set will be like, and this time, we finally have our first official image of the LEGO Batman Movie Ultimate Batmobile (70917).

According to Market Watch, the Ultimate Batmobile is a sort of 4 vehicles in 1. The jaw-dropping ride divides into four different vehicles – the Batmobile, Batwing, Bat-Tank and Batcycle and even comes with a rotating Bat-Signal equipped with a LEGO light brick for added realism. The set comes with never-before-seen minifigures of Alfred in his very own superhero getup, 2 Flying Monkeys, and what could be a highly collectible minifig, Polka Dot Man. Other than these, the set also comes with the rest of the Bat-Team: Batman, Robin, Batgirl, and alongside with the baddies, the Wicked Witch. The set measures at a whooping 14 inches long, 4 inches high, and 6 inches wide.

 

The set will be released on June 1 with a retail price of $129.99. Thanks to Brickset for the image.

Here’s What We Know About the LEGO Star Wars Summer Sets From the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2017.

This year’s Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany is now on its 4th day, and though we can’t be there personally to join in the festivities, we have Promo Bricks to thank for, in providing us with an inside look of the action as more and more reveals are unveiled by LEGO. If you were keeping tabs with our previous Nuremberg post last Tuesday, you may have noticed something quite obvious. German LEGO fan site Zusammengebaut who were also present during the opening day of the Toy Fair, has also noted the stringent rules that LEGO’s booth organizers have in place on certain themes on display. This is particularly true when it comes to their Star Wars summer collection where photography of the said sets was strictly prohibited. Thankfully, those who managed to be on the scene to witness the unveiling of these LEGO Star Wars sets were allowed to narrate what they saw. Here’s how Promo Bricks puts it based on a rough Google translate.

According to Christian of PB, this year’s LEGO Star Wars summer sets may be categorized into three subthemes: The Force Awakens, The Freemaker Adventures, and the classic Star Wars sets. These sets were also mentioned in our previous post wherein they were regarded as rumors back then.

The Force Awakens

Jakku Quadjumper (75178) –59.99€

This humble starship was the first choice of ride for Rey and Finn, until First Order forces decided it’s better to have it stay on the ground and be a part of it – for good. The set comes with the minifigure versions of Rey, Finn, BB-8, a First Order Stormtrooper and another unnamed minifig.

 

Rathtar Escape (75180) – 89.99€

This set has certain play features which can be probably compared to that of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorium (76060). The Rathtar Escape (75180) plays out on a portion of Han Solo’s freighter, the Eravana where two of these much feared Rathars escaped from their confinement. The minifigures included in this set are: Han Solo, Chewbacca, Bala-Tik and three members of the Guavian Death Gang

 

First Order Transport Speeder Battle Pack (75166) – 14.99€

This Battle Pack offers two First Order Stormtroopers, Officer and Flame / Snow Trooper minifigures. They come with a kind of armed transport platform.

 

The Freemaker Adventures

Tracker I (75185) – 69.99€

According to firsthand accounts, the Tracker 1 seems to have a strong resemblance to the equally imposing TIE-Interceptor. Minifigs included with the Tracker 1 are: an unnamed lightsaber-wielding figure, the Imperator, and an Ithorian.

 

The Arrowhead (75186) – 89.99€

This set seems to be the largest set on display under the Freemaker subtheme. The Arrowhead follows a relatively large, minimalistic design. On the whole the ship is said to be about half a meter long. There are five figures, including RO-GR, the reprogrammed combat droid of the Freemakers.

 

Classic LEGO Star Wars sets

Darth Vader Transformation (75183) – 29.99€

This one is clearly a remake of set 7251 from last 2005. It shows the transformation of the seriously injured Anakin Skywalker into the iconic Darth Vader. Though there are more details to this newer set compared to the previous one. Set 75183 has the minifigures of the Emperor together with Darth Vader, and a wounded Anakin.

 

Bounty Hunter Speeder Bike Battle Pack (75167) – 14.99€

Most LEGO Star Wars fans have been clamoring for these for ages. Thankfully, our prayers have been answered. For the first time ever, LEGO releases a set of minifigs dedicated to the legendary bounty hunters of the galaxy. Included together with the Speeder Bike are minifigures of Bossk, Dengar, IG-88 and 4-LOM.

 

Republic Fighter Tank (75182) – 29.99€

Another remake, this time of 2008’s set 7679, only in a slightly smaller scale. There are four minifigures that comes with newer Republic Fighter Tank: two Combat Droids, a Clone pilot, and a female Jedi.

 

Stormtrooper Commander (75531) – 24.99€

Following the likes of Clone-Commander Cody (75108) and the First-Order Stormtrooper (75114), LEGO finally brings forth a Stormtrooper Commander buildable figure.

 

Scout Trooper with Speederbike (75532) – 54.99€

Promo Bricks describes this set as a REALLY big one. The buildable Scout Trooper itself is of scale in proportion to that of its speeder bike from Episode 6. The bike is covered with panels in brown, and can be mounted on a stand of Technic beams.

 

Advent Calendar with 8 Minifigures (75184) – 29.99€

Same as in previous Toy Fairs, the Advent Calendar is shown in Nuremberg, even though we’re still very far from Christmas. Here are some of the minifigs and characters that Promo Bricks can identify within the Advent Calendar: BB8 with Nikolausmütze, a built Luggabeast, Teedo, AT-DP, Millenium Falcon, Kylo Rens Shuttle, First Order Snowtrooper, First Order Stormtrooper, sleigh, Y-Wing and various other figures (A total of eight) and other smaller models.

 

Thankfully, we’re a couple of weeks away before the Toy Fair season goes back to New York. By then, we hope to see all of these sets in the brick. So be sure to stay tuned here in the Brick Show for more up-to-the minute Toy Fair news and other surprises.
