I wrote about the LEGO promotions outlined in Target’s 2017 Toy Book Ad a few days ago, so it’s quite well known that certain LEGO giveaways are free to snag on certain days of late October and most of November.
The first wave of these freebies, available from October 29 to November 4, is a particularly uncommon item off the merchandising of The LEGO Batman Movie. I am, of course, talking about the Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman (5004928) keychain, something of an elusive find for LEGO fans of both the superhero and the film.
It’s so easy to like the Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman. After all, it’s pretty much Bruce Wayne in a white tux who just slapped on his Bat cowl while forgoing the rest of the costume, and the lipstick marks all over his clothes are a send-up of sorts to the various female characters in his universe who have fallen for him. In the present DC Comics run, he and Catwoman are planning to marry (again). But I digress.
When The LEGO Batman Movie came out, this LEGO keychain was an exclusive on Cinemark Theaters that showed the film, and nowhere else. It’s therefore a big balm to dedicated collectors that Target is taking a turn in giving them out. Guests need only a minimum $30 purchase of any LEGO Batman Movie merchandise to have their very own Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman keychain. It’s as simple as that. The best part of it is that Target shoppers can also simply buy the item directly on Target online without the qualifying $30 purchase.
Please take note that as of this writing, Target’s webpage referring to the Kiss Kiss Tuxedo Batman is currently unavailable. We don’t know exactly what are the reasons for its unavailability, or if it was posted by accident and therefore taken down, but the obvious thing is, there is a dedicated page for it and we as well hit that refresh button every now and then. We just have to see in the next few days if this page will be updated.
For now, it’s nice to know that this elusive TLBM minifigure keychain is still available for latecomers, and is something that LEGO has made available for everyone.
