This looks like the best of the new bat sets.

It was also in the movie; don't know why they didn't make it sooner.

Thanks for the nice review, ???theriddler???.  :classic:
A neat and funny ice cream truck and a pretty detailed yet perhaps a little big tumbler. An overall cool set for sure!

Thanks for the review Riddler. Your pics are a bit blurry though, if you want them a bit better you should sit your camera on a hard surface so you don't wobble it as much  :wink:
I love the Tumbler, though it is quite massive, but either way I'll be glad to get it. The figs in my opinion are really bad, Joker should atleast have a different suit. Oh well, it's worth it for that awesome van, and instance where the stickers are totally worth it. Thanks again!

Batbrick Away!  :devil:

Bring it on, oh mysterious puzzler....  :thumbup:
Perhaps it could help a little if you would resize the pics for your next one, with all that automatic resizing going on it
needs quite some time for the site to load.... in this context, to see two pics of your clock was perhaps a little odd too....  :sweet:

Great looking set, loved the review, pictures were good... sometimes blury but I think I will pick this up after I get the rest of the KOTCS sets.

Riddler a tip I learned in photoclass is to take a breath in and hold it while pushing the shutter so you don't accidentally move while breathing. I thought it was silly, but it does work.

Again Great review! Looking forward to more...  :tongue:

Uncle Joker's cheap Technic Missile surprise :hmpf: Great Review, however, there isn't much appeal to the set after you see what the "surprise" is, though I can modify the truck to have an evil gas-ice cream making interior :devil:

I'll tell you what George's problem was when writing this film. He was so preoccupied with whether or not he could…he didn’t stop to think if he should. That’s…that’s chaos.

The moral of Indy is... "Don't get in a swordfight with a Russian chick while hightailing it through the South African jungle while your mom is driving the truck because she will look away from the nonexistent road to criticize your footwork and accidentally cause some oddly bulbous jungle flora to whack you repeatedly right in the junk."

Looks like a nice set, thanks for the review! I can't get over how enormous the Tumbler is, they should have made it smaller (the price too  :tongue: )I fthey did that and threw in a Dark Knight Joker and henchman I would totally buy it.

Enjoy your new set!  :classic:

I think this is a great set, great price and really detailed Tumbler, which looks exactly like the tumbler in the movie. The only problem I have is the joker's hair piece.
So am I still waiting, for this world to stop hating. Can't find a good reason, can't find hope to believe in.

Nice review M8.  Shame that most of the pictures are blurry but nonetheless.
Just wanted to say that out of all my Lego sets, this one, 7888 is the best.  The Tumbler is so cool once it is put together!  Those four huge wheels at the back make it quite unique!
If you do not have this set I highly recomend it.

Reviving old topic is fine, "if" the member has something valid or constructive to add into the discussion that has not expired in any forms. In this case, he is commenting on the review and adding his views into it. Such actions doesn't really get the staff annoyed.

On the other hand, please take a look at this topic for better explaination.

Thanks.

Thank you for clearing that up  I felt that it was OK to review an old topic, as stated, rather than just go ahead and start a new one.
A shame that this set, as all other Batman sets, have gone up so highly in value but still all things considering (general after market Lego price hikes) it is still a wonderfull set even with its market value today (that is if you can ignore the MRSP).

I too thought the Joker's van was the pleasant surprise of this set. The Tumbler looks good yes, until you see it in person... it's grossly oversized. They should have made it closer to a regular car size (like the movie), because this one is a monster.
