Yeah the bat mobile will 100% be a set if they do indeed do sets based off the movie

Can you actually even think about Lego not making sets for a new Batman movie :laugh_hard:

It doesn't really feel like a Batmobile to me but if this becomes a set I'm buying it for sure!

If they do make it I would prefer it to be a two seater, especially with the rumour that the Racers are going to be made that way. I’m glad they’ve gone with that style of car, it’s different enough to the previous tanks.

Boy.. this movie is giving me some strong noir vibes

The sets from this movie will be interesting for sure.

Hmpf, not noir enough for my tastes... :tongue: ...seriously though, I am liking how this cinematic take is shaping-up; and if anyone here's seen what Matt Reeves has done for the latter two installments in Andy Serkis' Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy, this film has to be good... :smug:

...and we've already seen that there's a Batcycle, so another possible/likely set with that?

Take this with a grain of salt for now because even if it's coming it won't release this year but I heard from my source that Lego will do more than one Technic Fast and Furious set, they are going to do a whole system theme for Fast and Furious which  will supposedly release next year for the 20th anniversary of the Fast franchise and F10 release.The sets will be like Speed Champions in size of the cars, 8 wide. 

On 2/1/2020 at 7:24 AM, Harkonen said:

It won't replace Speed Champions. The theme is the new Racers equivalent, it won't go anywhere anytime soon. 

One more thing, expect the 8 wide cars to move beyond Speed Champions in the future.

You would  hope so! And a Batcave to top it off with a placement slot for both vehciles!

Man, I really hope we get 5 sets for this movie. And more DC comics sets for the lack of sets this year! 

I mean Externals has 4 FFS!

That's like comparing apples and pears, they are two completely seperate things with different budgets. And The Eternals' main cast consist of 10+ characters we've never gotten before, while the characters that will be appearing in The Batman have had at least one figure over the last few years (not counting the fact they're based off comics or the DCEU) so it makes complete sense. And you may not like what I'm about to say but judging from the 2019 financial report LEGO Marvel sells a LOT better than DC so they get more budget :wink:

I like how the Batmobile is at least a practicle vehicle, one misstep while riding the new Batcycle and Bats gets impaled on those horns/earns :laugh_hard:

Yeah I saw that, I buy Marvel sets as well! 

Good point, new minifguares should be interesting from Eternals!

If only Lego gave DC sets more variety!

His protective armour should keep him safe lol

Not even Guardians had that many. A friend of mine is speculating that one of the Eternals sets isn't actually an Eternals set because it doesn't have a consistent/consecutive set number. This isn't concrete information, pure speculation.

No, no it doesn't. Lego is a private company meaning they aren't even required to release financial results let alone release accurate results. Don't you remember how inaccurate the Avenger's Endgame set were?

Hey, I love DC too but I don’t think lying about sales will get us anywhere. 

Why would LEGO lie about Marvel being in the top six selling themes? What would they gain? If they were prone to lying they wouldn’t feature the same 5 themes nearly every year. They’d pick themes like TLM2 or Overwatch in hopes of their sales being boosted. 

Yes the Endgame sets were inaccurate but that doesn’t mean they sold poorly. Kids don’t seem to care that much about accuracy. Adults still bought them too compare the fan collections on Brickset to other themes. Brickset has a community of mainly male AFOLs and some TFOLs, so their collections suggest they weren’t too bothered by inaccuracies too. 

I don't think DC is selling awfully, but it doesn’t seem to be doing great either. All the 2018 winter wave were cancelled after a year, as were last year’s two winter sets. If they were selling well they would’ve been kept on shelves longer, especially the larger sets. I also feel if DC was selling well we’d be getting more than four summer sets. 

I really want the theme to sell well and I’m hoping the CMF was successful, as will the summer Batman sets. The more sets people buy means the more sets we’ll get in the future! :)

Many kids that have those sets might not have even seen the movie, and even then they are still the main target buyer for those sets.

Avengers Endgame was rated PG13, while those sets were sold as 6+ or 8+.

AFOL or teens might compare the sets with the movies as a deciding factor for buying, but even then I still think a large portion of the sales were by kids or their parents, seperate of the movie details.

Of course the movie being the #1 revenue movie of all time, and the news about that, must have attracted a lot more buyers as well. (and now 4 Avengers movies are in the top 11)

If Lego writes Marvel did well, it could be a marketing strategy to sell more when people see it is a “best seller”. I am right in what I am saying, last time Ninjago wasn’t on there but it’s an evergreen, if it didn’t do well, it wouldn’t be one.

Even if that was true (which I highly doubt) it would barely make a difference. The only people who would buy sets just because a theme is a bestseller are the small amount of AFOL resellers. And an evergreen theme doesn't necessarily have to be a bestseller every single year.

"I am right in what I'm saying". No, no I don't think you are. How would this help sell the sets? Of course Ninjago did well, but not as good as other themes. Marvel is becoming extremely popular so it's not a surprise that kids want Marvel sets and not Ninjago ones. Also, Marvel is also an evergreen theme.

Am I the only one here wondering why we're discussing Marvel sales in the DC thread?

Yes it is true.

Or it’s there for Disney, besides I am right about this.

You do realise you are pretty much saying to everyone that your opinion is a fact right? LEGO has nothing to gain from lying to us about their sales
