    Looks like all the big sites have gotten their early review copies of the '66 Batmobile, here's Brickset's review since they go into the most detail: https://brickset.com/article/58677/review-76188-batman-classic-tv-series-batmobile The Batmobile looks even more beautiful in these pictures, I'm seriously counting down the days till the 26th. Only small issue is the OCD in me noticed that the logo stickers on the door areas aren't centered and one side of the red bat logo now has more white than the other half. Batman's logo on his belt isn't centered either, hope that isn't a common trend.

    It is a little weird that the Batmobile is more expensive in the UK for some reason. Over here the Joker 4+ set is $40 Canadian, while the Batmobile is $35.

    The '66 Batmobile is listed on Shop@Home for $30 USD/$35 CAD with a release date of April 26th. That's a lot sooner than I thought, which is good because i can't wait to get it. Also on the display stand plaque it says that the type of fuel that the Batmobile takes is "Batfuel" lol.

    And boy does it make the front look even better since they give you the option.

    Well those pictures were a great surprise to wake up to. The 4+ set is pretty decent, I knew the Hush Batsuit was going to stay exclusive to the Accessory Pack so far. Same 2012 black Batsuit minifigure we've gotten for nearly a decade (!!!), the same Joker that's been used since 2019, yawn. Getting the new Batgirl in a cheaper set might make it enticing though, now I just need the Nightwing minifigure from the Bat-Base to show up in a cheaper set too. But the standout has to be that 60s Batmobile set, which is ABSOLUTELY amazing. The overall base design looks the same from the one we got 5 years ago, but what makes it an upgrade from the 2016 version is all those accurate details like having 3 exhausts in the back instead of 2 and the front being way more accurate with the grill details. Giving the option for removing the stud shooters is just icing on the cake. Only downsides are the lack of dual molded legs for Batman and no Robin. How do you make a Batman '66 set with no Robin, he was by his side for every single episode, there's even a seat FOR him. Throwing in a stand with the sticker just like the GWP 1989 Batmobile is a big surprise, to me it makes this set feel more like a collector's item than a set for kids. I'm not complaining though, this will be a Day 1 buy for me, and my wallet thanks me too now that I don't need to blow $300+ just to get the 2016 version. What has me curious is that what if this becomes a thing? We got a 1989 Batmobile, now a 1966 Batmobile with a display stand, imagine if Lego continues this Batmobile Anthology trend with a proper minifigure scale Tumbler that comes with a stand...

    Now? It's been like that since the beginning, teen drama soap opera's are the CW's specialty. I used to watch The Flash live every Tuesday night but eventually I realized how terrible it was and dropped it halfway through Season 3.

    I guess I'm the only one here that's actually excited for this? I thought the 4+ set was all we were going to get for another 60s Batman set, but this just made things a lot better. Now there's a chance to get an updated Robin to go with the new '66 Batman minifigure, plus I can actually get a '66 Batmobile without having to blow $300+ on the Batcave set that threw it in as an add-on. And with the advancements that Lego has made in the Speed Champions theme in the past year or so, like introducing the new base piece that can make two seater vehicles more manageable, this Batmobile has the possibility to be an improvement over the previous version. I kept thinking since 2016 that Lego could've easily have sold the Batmobile on its own and it would sell like crazy, and it looks like I might be right soon.

    I wouldn't mind getting a proper minifig scale Tumbler that LOOKS accurate to the real thing unlike the one we got in 2013. The 2008 version is still one of my holy grails, but that thing is gigantic compared to how small the Tumbler actually is in real life. A minifig scale Batpod with Catwoman wouldn't hurt either. And just to complete things, a Batman Begins legacy set with Scarecrow and Ra's along with a Dark Knight set featuring Two-Face so that you'd have all the main villains from the trilogy in minifigure form. Oh yeah, and Talia somewhere as well, maybe in a set with the truck that has the nuke.

    I just keep telling myself that we just have to get past this movie and then it'll be smooth sailing and no one will ever want to see this side of DC again (hopefully).

    I'm the same as you, none of the hair pieces on any of the Nightwing's have really done it for me either. Ever since it was introduced back in 2008, I've been a huge fan of the "Minifigure, Hair Short Tousled with Side Part"/Mutt Williams hair. It's been used with the 2008 Tim Drake Robin and 2014 Damian Wayne Robin minifigures, but I think it suits Nightwing the best. When I finally managed to get my hands on the original 2006 Nightwing, the first thing I did was replace his Exo-Force anime hair with that piece instead, and I feel like it looks SO much better:

    And the Robin in that set as well. It still baffles me that Lego just decided to throw in 3/5 of the 2003 Teen Titans cartoon designs as minifigures and then never follow it up again with Raven and Cyborg in the same style to complete the team.

    Wow, I don't check this thread for a day and I missed 20+ pages. As for the Daily Bugle D2C, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I always thought a set like this would be a pipe dream or something that would only exist in MOC form and the closest thing we'd ever get was the Bugle set from 2013. Even better, it's going to be comic based! I'll take comic Marvel sets over the MCU ones anyday (especially if it's for Spider-Man, but that's another story), I can't WAIT to see the final product.

    The pain hurts a little less when you're also a Marvel fan as well (mainly just for the comic Spider-Man stuff), but I'm just counting down the days till The Batman sets/the $230 D2C is revealed.

    I was beginning to think that I'd never see the Mark 3 be made as a minifigure, let alone actually getting an MCU set from the 2008-2011 years when Mega Bloks still had the Marvel license. The Iron Monger set is easily my most anticipated one from this wave, I used to remember making purist or custom minifigures from Iron Man 1 with Sharpie to get even close to the idea of owning minifigures from the movie. And like someone mentioned earlier, I hope Lego continues the same idea that they're doing for Harry Potter's 20th anniversary with the Raimi Spider-Man movies as well. Getting updated flesh tone minifigures from the 2002-2004 sets would be a dream come true, and maybe even the possibility of finally getting the black suit to complete the Raimi suit collection.

    At this point it's starting to get frustrating that Lego would make a symbiote Spider-Ham before giving us a single black suit Spider-Man minifigure...or at least a plain all black head with white eyes so that you could put it on a Venom torso.
