This is one set that I actually wouldn't mind paying the TRU mark-up, because of all the play features it kind of makes up for the crappy price-per-piece ratio resulting from the mark-up. Looks like a very fun little set to play with and a good one to display thanks to its colors and carnival look (Though you'd have to factor in the track, of course)

My only complaint with the set is with Robin. They only gave him handcuffs to go against The Joker, Harley, and Riddler. Do they really expect him to take down the Clown Prince of Crime and his cronies with a pair of handcuffs? Nope, but all the better for him to get captured. Plus I'm not a fan of Batman's vehicle in this set. I know they had to put a vehicle in this set and the only one they could have without jacking up the price is the Bat-cycle, but its design doesn't work for me, but now I think I'm just looking for things to complain about.

A must have for any Bat-fan or DC fan. It has some notable entries in Batman's rouges gallery as well as the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder themselves, excellent playability, not to mention the set itself is eye candy. It's been on my wish-list since it came out and I can't seem to find it without paying an arm and a leg on eBay. I guess I know why: This is an amazing set.

That is really cool review! Thank you very much for it! This set is perfect, especially minifigs, but Batpod is awful. And I have built new one! Also one disadvantage - stickers. I don't like them!

P.S. Riddler is the best minifigure of this set, I think :classic: .
