Last May, we had our first look of the official images of the latest set under the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes line, the Batman: Escape From Ra’s al Ghul 76056. We’re simply excited for the set considering that we have three new minifigures that will debut together with 76056: for a price point of just $29.99, you’ll get 257 pieces worth of bricks, a set with 4 awesome play features, and new minifigures of Ra’s al Ghul, Thalia al Ghul, and Desert Batman. Here’s LEGO’s official description of 76056 for our reference, followed by Stephen’s review:
LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman: Escape From Ra’s al Ghul 76056
Pieces: 257; Price: $29.99
Break out Robin™ from Ra’s al Ghul’s secret headquarters!

Evade Ra’s al Ghul™ jumping out of the Lazarus Pit and rescue Robin™ from the cell—but watch out for the swinging axe trap!

As pointed out by Stephen in his review, the Escape From Ra’s al Ghul set is definitely worth the buck. Considering the play features that come in a small to medium sized set such as this, and with minifigures that will eventually be popular among minifig collectors, LEGO as it seems, did a great job in balancing cost and excellent features. From the Desert Batman Buggy, a staircase with a swinging axe trap, exploding prison cage, allowing Robin to escape, and the Lazarus Pit with catapult functions, the 76056 is one cool play set. It is already up and available over at shop.LEGO.com, and at all LEGO Stores with plenty of stocks to go around as of today. If you’re a LEGO VIP and are planning to get this set eventually, I suggest you take advantage of LEGO’s July’s promotional with its free exclusive LEGO Classic Knights set 5004419 which can be yours for a minimum purchase of $50 and more. You might have to hurry with this one because this exclusive will only be available until July 10 next week or until supplies last.
