    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.

    For now anyways. I wonder if it'll show up in any future sets, the torso in particular. I know the dual molded legs will definitely stay exclusive though, Lego can't even remain consistent about giving Spider-Man dual molded legs in every set he appears in.

    I wouldn't mind another big fig Bane but based on his classic appearance this time, suspenders and all, instead of being a mix of wearing his comic mask with his TDKR coat.

    Damn, I got my hopes up for a second there.

    I take it this is for The Batman, probably the Batmobile set? Or did I miss something?

    It's times like these where I'm glad I'm not a diehard Snyder fan like I used to be 4-5 years ago. I fell off that train when he said that the dead Robin was Dick Grayson instead of Jason Todd and wanted to skip past all the other Robins to get to Carrie Kelly, wasting any potential for Nightwing or a Batfamily. I'm just here for what Matt Reeves has planned for his entire Batman world, far away from the DCEU. As for the '66 Batman figure, he looks great. Though I too wish that he kept the dual molded legs that the 2016 version had instead of the cheap method where it's only printed on the front of the legs. Looks like I'll have to check out Bricklink for that.

    Which is why I said "if". Though Lego would probably make it 18+ and in UCS style but based on the comic instead of the movie, with a Dark Knight Returns Batman and Carrie Kelly Robin to go with the Dark Knight Returns Joker that came in the CMF's last year.

    It is amazing that you said this a few days ago, because look at what Snyder revealed will be in his movie today. If Lego ever decided to make one set for the Snyder Cut, it'd 100% be this.

    ...I don't know why I was expecting the cowl to still have his mouth area as part of the build, but I guess that would make it look like you have Batman's head as a trophy.

    Looking closer at that Batman '66 torso image, I noticed that there's a cowl right next to it and it appears to be the same one as the one from the D2C Batcave with the short ears.

    I'll take anything over David Ayer deciding to give him a cursive tattoo on his forehead that states how crazy he is.

    At least the Damaged tattoo is gone?

    And technically the 20th anniversary of the first time Lego made a licensed superhero minifigure with the Raimi Spider-Man sets for Lego Studios. As for DC, I don't know if they'd also do it next year since the Marvel and DC Super Heroes themes both launched in the same year, or wait till 2026 when it'll be 20 years since the original Lego Batman theme.

    EDIT: Whoops, I should go ask this question in the Lego Store BAM topic instead.

    The Batman Accessory Pack is FINALLY available in North America, for both Canada and the U.S. I already put down my order for 4 of them, thankfully that weird 3 week delay from its original release date is over now.

    I hate being that "akshully" guy but the images on those bottles are just placeholders. The Bat symbol on the bottle is the Hush logo and the "Riddler" is just a reuse of some Hugo Strange artwork instead of how Riddler actually looks with his mask in the movie.

    I've love if the $70 set turned out to be a Batcave, but then again I hoped that the biggest BVS set was going to be the Batcave as well back in 2015. If we're only getting three sets, then I think Lego will throw one villain in each just to make it necessary to buy all three due to their exclusivity. 76179: Batcycle with Catwoman and her bike 76181: Batmobile chase with Penguin in his own car like we saw in the trailer 76183: Some big final battle type of set with Riddler in his lair?

    It was supposed to be June 25th 2021 for the longest time. Then thanks to the pandemic, it got moved to October 1st, and now it's March 4th 2022. So if none of what happened happened, we probably would've been getting finalized images of the sets soon, which hurts.

    As long as that Hasbro restriction remains where only they can sell individual figures of characters (unless that restriction has been changed recently, I don't keep up with that stuff), then there's never going to be a Marvel or Star Wars CMF series.

    I was about to ask the same thing. I hope it hasn't been delayed or pushed back, I was waiting to get it as soon as it hit midnight.

    I can easily see Lego reusing that Celestial build for future Sentinel designs in an X-Men set, and even if they don't, it'll definitely be something I'll be doing since it'll tower over minifigures with its 30 cm height.

    When you put both of them side by side you can really notice how much of a difference 14/almost 15 years of printing quality has. The logo on the 2021 version isn't 100% the same as the 2006 logo, the bat head is slightly smaller, and I kind of wish that the belt printing was horizontal like the 2006 one instead of slightly curving, but those are just minor nitpicks. What really speaks volumes it is the amount of detail on the utility belt. The old one looks so primitive compared to what we're getting now, but that's to be expected with a "remaster" of a previous minifigure. Also, now that we have the updated Hush suit, all's that left is to get an updated version of the 2007 blue Batsuit with the big Alex Ross logo and Lego will have officially updated all 4 Batsuits from the original Batman line. Getting a Dark Knight Returns Batman in a DC CMF Series 2 would be the perfect place to make it happen, plus it would compliment the Joker we got from Series 1.

    YESSSSSS I'm back in 2006, that Batman minifigure is everything I was hoping for! The torso, the logo, the belt printing (I still think it'll be bright yellow since the picture of the bag with the pieces had it in that color), all look like the original 2006 torso but modernized. And those new legs with the updated boot design, I'm getting at least 4 of these packs for sure.

    Technically second since we got Doctor Doom as a minifigure in 2013 (not really the greatest idea in hindsight since it took almost 10 years to get SOMETHING else F4 related with this Bagman tease). But hinting at the Bagman suit, which was only used during the symbiote story in the comics, must mean that Lego knows there's a demand for the black suit...right? I just really need it, or at the very least a plain black Spider-Man head with white eyes, that's still the only exclusive piece the SDCC black suit has.

    Or Lego continues this detailed route and makes a Superman next with the same type of trunks printing and updated boot printing like his DC Super Villains model:
