    This one is really hidden, even the actual leaked picture has scribbles all over it to cover up the entire picture. I can send you the link to the post if you'd like.

    Glad I'm not the only one who instantly thought how perfect those legs would be for the Drifter minifigure. Now if there was just a flesh head that had black circles around the eyes, it'd be perfect. And speaking of the head, at first glance I thought the Bruce Wayne head in all three sets was reusing the Tom Riddle head from this year's Chamber of Secrets set. But after remembering that these sets were supposed to come out this year, I'm pretty sure this head was originally intended to resemble Robert Pattinson instead of Christian Coulson (the guy who played Riddle in the movie). I might be reaching here, but that face is exclusive to the Chamber of Secrets set for now until The Batman sets are released, so it's definitely a new face print that was made recently. I should be thankful that Lego didn't just decide to reuse the Solo Han Solo head here like they did with all the Cedric Diggory minifigures besides the CMF variant. Last time I checked, Alden Ehrenreich looks nothing like Pattinson.

    Oh man, if we're finally getting a Batman Beyond figure after all these years, it's going to be a monster hit in whatever set it comes in. Easily the most requested alternate Batsuit that people have been wanting as a minifigure. Continuing the Batmobile trend, maybe a Beyond Batmobile with someone like Blight as the villain of the set, or even the Beyond version of the Joker from the Return of The Joker movie? And with flesh hands with the J. Jonah Jameson minifigure from the Bugle.

    Oh yeah, that trailer was one of the greatest things I've ever seen. And it made the wait for the sets even more unbearable, especially since mine was put on Backorder (even though I pre-ordered). I really can't wait to get the Batmobile and properly modify it after seeing how much of a beast it was in the trailer. Though now I'm questioning even more why Lego didn't decide to give Penguin a car as well, considering they love making car chase sets. What was also surprising was Lego not doing anything for FanDome this year. I really thought they'd have some exclusives again like with the CW Supergirl figure and the Wonder Woman diorama set from last year.

    It'd be a dream come true if Lego realized they have a second chance now with the Raimi movies and made sets based on Spider-Man 3. It would finally fill that empty hole of having sets based on the entire trilogy instead of only the first two thanks to Lego losing the rights to make Spider-Man sets and Mega Brands subsequently picking up the Marvel license in October 2004. Getting an official Raimi black suit Spider-Man after constantly seeing custom versions of it for years would be a sight to behold. Even if they went back and made updated flesh toned minifigures from the first movie, it would be more than welcome. We're already guaranteed to get a flesh tone version of Dafoe's Norman Osborn with NWH, but an updated minifigure of the Human Spider wrestling costume as well would be amazing.

    You are I are in the same boat there. The back looks pretty much perfect without any changes needed, but the spring loaded missiles have got to go. That's half the reason why the hood looks so enlarged and out of place, just to accommodate that feature. Now I'm hoping someone is also able to figure out how to make the front of the Batcycle look much more sleeker like the real thing.

    I see I'm not the only one that's very eager to get the sets so that they can be modified lol. I'm still not sure which one of Gervant's designs to upgrade the official version with since he's made 3 attempts of this Batmobile. I guess the last one is the most accurate, but I really like his first two designs with how the wheels make it low to the ground and don't stick out so far like the wheels in the set. The windscreen piece on the first two really gives it that slick look as well. And a part of me is also waiting to see how he improves the official version when he gets it compared to his own MOC's. As for the flames, I think Lego is accurate on this one. I saw that poster image months ago and I don't think it's a good source to go off of because the logo is completely wrong, it looks nothing like the official one that's on all the merchandise. I remember seeing Spin Master's Batmobile toy which also had the same blue flames instead of orange. So either the concept art that all the different toys companies got feature the Batmobile shooting blue flames, or it's actually going to show blue flames instead of the traditional orange in the movie. I'm leaning towards the second one because of this scene from last year's trailer when the Batmobile's engine fired up:

    Yup, thankfully they're not super expensive. Now that you mention it, that one also works really well. If it only had the points/scallops at the bottom of the cape, it'd be perfect. Side-note, it's a good thing I waited till today to pre-order The Batman sets because nothing beats Double VIP Points. Now instead of getting 1500 points when buying all 4 sets, it's 3000.

    I'm sort of regretting not getting the Mobile Bat-Base set for those 3 cape variants. Then again, the only reason why I would get the Bat-Base is for that Nightwing figure and the capes, so I think I might just have to go Bricklink hunting for all that instead of spending $130 for a useless made up Bat vehicle. I thought those capes were going to be the new standard in future sets and instead, it's devolving.

    Besides getting real sick of Lego suddenly switching over to the 4+ single hole cape for the main sets, I think I'm going to swap Battinson's cape to the spongy, two holed version instead. Not only is it going to actually look better, but since the material is so thick that it covers the entire neck area, it could kind of work to represent the collar part of the Batsuit (since no piece would actually be able to fit there thanks to the cowl).

    Yeah, you both pretty much see the issue with the chinstrap area being the main thing that's holding this cowl back from being a suitable choice.

    To kind of play Devil's Advocate, I can *kind of* see where Lego was coming from with deciding to use this cowl over the short ear version when you compare the promo art to the cowl piece. Of course if it were up to me I would've made sure that there would've been a new cowl piece, but the way the top of the cowl looks with the ear shape feels similar-ish enough. Though would it have been asking for too much to at least print the stitching outline on the forehead? I know it can be done, they did cowl printing for both Adam West Batman's, the Knightmare Batman, and on some of the alternate outfits from The Lego Batman Movie as well as the Electro Suit Batman that all used this specific cowl type. I think I'm one of the few that believe that the short ear cowl doesn't really work for Battinson since his cowl doesn't really have short ears, they're more medium sized compared to the stubs that Batfleck had. Right now, I feel like the closest replacements that are available would be the Batgirl cowl from TLBM if it came in black, or the First Appearance cowl if the ears sticking outward weren't a problem.

    So the Wolverine mech is getting the classic yellow suit, thank god. Now to just hope that the cowl is included along with the hair. And now that we know the buildable Iron Man is going to be similar to Arishem in terms of height, I'm definitely going to be changing it into a Sentinel. It's practically already going to be done for me with the circle on the chest and the robotic face/body, all I need to do is swap out the red and gold for blue and purple.

    Don't be so sure. Last year the Supergirl figure was announced on August 20th, only two days before Fandome. We still have one entire week left, that's more than enough time for something to be announced. I'm expecting the same for a special Fandome diorama set as well.

    Glad to see someone liked my rambling. I already mentioned it in the post, but for the Batmobile I think I'm pretty much going to modify it based on this custom MOC:
