Review: 7781 Batman - The Batmobile: Two Face's Escape
Posted 10 March 2006 - 11:56 PM
The best figs of any Batman set for the price. The unique black Batman, a great Two Face, and a similarly cool henchman. Awesome stuff!
Ok... I don't really get this. It says GC Bank, so how exactly did it get Two Face's logo and coloring on it...? Just a thought.
The back. The idea with the weird dishes in the back is that someone sits on top, and Batman fires his handy-dandy batmissile at it, and KAPOW!
The sides also fold down to reveal guns. Oh, and I really like that we get four black mudguards.
I was really pretty blown away by this. The construction is ingenious on the Batmobile. It's a LOT cooler in person. Tons of great curving pieces, but not really a *I wanted to say that this set contains a lot of big pieces but didn't want to take the time to write it all, so I used the word "juniorized" instead* stuff. Awesome all around.
The back. The flames do not spin.
Cool cockpit, lots of good accessories (same as in the Batboat and Batwing - 3 straight batarangs, 2 flipped batarangs, one pair of handcuffs, a tommygun, and an uzi).
Not exactly sure what the little chain thing is, but hey. It's an excuse for a lamppost and a bunch of black teeth. That's cool with me.
FINAL VERDICT: 8.1/10
I really love this set. It's way cool, fun to build and fun to play with. Great for pieces, figs, whatever you're after. DEFINITELY pick this up if you're interested in the Batman line. My second-favorite of the lot!
Until next time,

The figs look very good (I like Two-faces and the henchman). And the armored car looks great. Definately a nice set.

I just love the way it the batmobile looks! Lego could learn something from this with the number of figs too...

Maybe he stole the van, repainted it and added some tiny toys.
And leaving the logo of the bank on it could be to tease them ("Hey hey, I stole your car and am still driving with it in front of your eyes!!!")
BTW, I noticed that the gangsters from this set and the one with Joker have the same faces. Now THIS is odd in my opinion since there are several other cool "evil" faces they could have used... |-/

Actually, I believe that is supposed to represent one of those tack strips that police throw down over roadways so that the suspects car will drive over it and puncture their tires.
Man, I can't wait to get these sets.

It does. But that's more because the UCS version is, well, ugly... ;-)

I really hope it does. On the pictures it looks like a big black box...very blocky and (compared to SW UCS) very ugly IMO...

However, they do have nice canopies, MFs and accesoires. But I'd rather order loads of lime/orange/yellow/oldgrey of BL then buy Batman sets...
Just my 2 cents...

At first I was kind of disappointed; while building it, it seemed like it was going to be very ugly. Somehow, it got a lot better at the end though; most of the ugliness is covered up by the outermost layer of bricks.
I like the Black batman; honestly the gray batman looks dumb to me; but the weird thing about this is that you can't see Batmans eyes through his mask. That just seems too weird to me.
Oh well; the bat-weapons are good, the Batmobile is good (I wish it were bigger; about 40% of the pieces in this set went towards the truck and stop-sign-thing), so I give it a solid 7/10.
