    REVIEW: 70922 The Joker Manor

    The next amazing mammoth set or just a source of new roller coaster parts? Let's find out in… Set Name: The Joker Manor Set #: 70922 Theme: The LEGO Batman Movie Pieces: 3444 Minifigures: 10 Year of Release: 2017 Price at Release: USD 270, UK 250, EU 270ish, AUD 400, CA 350 INTRODUCTION When we heard there would be a big D2C set to sort of cap off the LEGO Batman Movie line, the sentiment I saw most in AFOL discussions was to hope it'd be a proper Wayne Manor. Instead… it's a Wayne Manor corrupted by Joker, aka another Joker funland type of thing, aka a mishmash. I myself was a bit disappointed. This set looks fun and colourful to be sure, but we've had so many large sets lately that this one didn't capture the wow factor for me. Using Brickset's database statistics, I see that Joker Manor is the 13th largest system set ever. Three of those are repeats/remakes - Death Star, Millennium Falcon, and now Taj Mahal, so in a sense Joker Manor comes in as the 10th largest. A whopping nine of those thirteen largest sets have been released in just 2016 and 2017 alone. Nine new sets over 3000 pieces, USD 250+, in just two years! Going into this set I'm thinking, is it getting to be too much with the gigantic sets? Does this one earn its place in that top bracket? BOX I know we all want to get to what we came here for, the actual LEGO, but the designers have really done a great job with the box. The Joker graffiti motif really pops, and continues onto the sides as well. It's a fun, and of course gigantic, start to the set. PAPERS The instructions are one fat perfect-bound book, with nothing remarkable about them. They do have pictures of four new LEGO Batman Movie sets, which was exciting when I received this review copy, but now those pictures are online. Moving right along, here are the stickers. Even though they came sealed in plastic with the instructions, they curled up immediately. Maybe it's me (aka the air in my apartment), and not them? Anyway, most of these stickers are fine, although there are three atrocious ones which I'll get to. You might be able to guess already. THE BUILD Enough about packaging, let's get into it! There are 24 bags in total in the set, plus a couple large unnumbered bags containing big structural things and the roller coaster parts. I was intrigued going in to see how the build would proceed, and I hope you are too! But if not, you can always scroll right along. Bag 1 gives us the Joker along with a load of technic structural parts and some flooring. A few nice tiles, but nothing terrible exciting. Now that most big sets aren't built on baseplates, they need good foundations. This is certainly what I'd call a nice, sturdy start. Bag 2 immediately hits us with some more colour. Still plenty of larger pieces as we lay the groundwork. Also Batman. The ground level already feels pretty substantial in length, if not exactly in width. Bag 3 swings back to mostly drab colours, but includes the new curvy tall panel part, trans-yellow windows, and some other rare-ish parts/colours. Altogether these the fireplace/hall sort of room. I had no idea where the brown studs with bar would go when I first saw them, as I hadn't seen any in the official set images, but they are cleverly used for an upside assembly that repeats on the front of the building. Sadly, the undersides of the plates in this assembly are left showing on the finished build and look a bit sloppy. Bag 4 continues on the same side of the building that we were working on, and brings in some more lovely lime green and dark red. We also get window panes in more fun colours and the very cute Forever Sorting 2 printed tile. Upon completing bag 4 we've now got a slight sense of the building at hand, and you can really see the inverted plates which do not look cohesive. Bag 5 swings over to the other side of the building and gives us Nightwing. More of the same interesting parts as we've already seen, which are great to get nonetheless. The little kitchen corner is completed, along with the foundation for the gargantuan microwave. For some reason, there's a cup that has fallen on the floor which I don't remember from the movie. But am I forgetting something? Bag 6 isn't much to write home about parts-wise besides for another of the new panel parts. It does however build the all important microwave. Bag 7 finishes off the funhouse mirror section and catches the second side of the building up to the first side. I have actually made a couple of small errors in the build at this point, but not to worry, I amended them later. Bag 8 heads in a different direction colour-wise, building the base for the tower section and the mechanism for the punching boxing-gloves. While grey and black are good utilitarian colours, I'm more of a fun-colours kind of a guy, and Bag 9 delivers. So many wonderful things here I had to separate them out. At this point the Joker elements have started taking over in the form of the massive, eye-catching display welcoming you into the manor. It's not a very complicated build, but sometimes just some simply color blocking can go a long way. Bag 10 focuses on the boxing gloves and finishing off the front display, which now looks even snazzier. Bag 11 heads back to the more dull colours of the Wayne Manor portion, building up some more supports for the roller coaster and a sloping dark red roof section. Bag 12 brings in some lovely trans-blue parts for the bath, and basically completes the Wayne Manor interior besides for one little attic detail to come. At just a little over halfway, it becomes clear just how much of the build is the Joker detailing, although there is still some Wayne Manor to complete. Bag 13 goes all grey everything, but also gives us our first Friends Are Family minifigure of the set - Joker! This further completes the manor and readies it for the tall dark red roofs. Bag 14 oddly builds the piano which goes in the hall that was finished in bag 3, and doesn't seem to add a lot visually, although the offset slope/tile motif around the tower is well done. Bag 15 - you can guess what this is! Bag 16 finally completes the Wayne Manor-ish parts of the set. Bag 17 goes back to colourful, with lots of bright parts. These come together to build the extremely unnerving Joker face. I used to think the Joker face in Jokerland was a bit creepy, but this takes it to another level! Bag 18 continues up the central tower with more bright colours. Bag 19 is exclusively dedicated to the big Joker sign in brick built lettering, which looks fantastic but also contains one of the most frustrating parts of the build with the sticking of Joker's face. More on that later. Bag 20 adds the central eye, not to be confused with the Eye of Sauron, because this is indeed something else in the movie. I was now waiting with baited breath for the roller coaster. Surely that wouldn't be built along with the very last bag? Sure enough, Bag 21 just adds the HA! signs and the little bombs in front, which use sausages and fairly new plant parts as fuses. Quite well done. The HA! signs are pretty simple but add so much. At last, we've reached Bag 22 which gives us the roller coaster carts and finishes the set. But before I could finish the set, I had to dive into… THE ROLLERCOASTER One of the most exciting elements of this set, hands down, is the new roller coaster system. We knew LEGO had to get there eventually, what with their fairground sets and their attempts at roller coasters over the years, like the Temple of Doom set and the recent Friends park set. But now they have finally gone and made a proper roller coaster system. People say LEGO doesn't make new parts for D2C sets, but that definitely seems to be changing as this set has quite a few. We already know the roller coaster system will be returning in a City mining set for 2018, and it's a safe bet that a Creator Expert type roller coaster set isn't far behind. The roller coaster carts are quite flat, allowing them to really be customized, as LEGO should be. Each gets two wheel bars snapped in, which are a more rubbery material. They snap in easily and aren't too hard to get out, though you need to fiddle with them. The carts snap together loosely so that they won't come detached on their own, but are easy enough for you to detach. This set contains five types of new track: four long round corners, two convex slopes, two shallow concave slopes, two steeper concave slopes, and two short straights. A longer straight is coming in the mining set in 2018. All of these parts look and feel wonderful. The parts all fit pretty standard LEGO geometry, so they should be easy to incorporate into creations. They are also of course made to fit together in their own system, with the top of the steep concave slope fitting the bottom of the convex slope, etc. The bars of the track and side rails are thankfully the standard bar size, and I can already imagine seeing them used in all sorts of creative ways in sic-fi mods that need lots of bits and bobs clipped onto things and odd angles. These parts are really well done. But the biggest question is - how well do they work? And the answer is - very, very well. The cart on rails action is extremely smooth, with no risk of coming detached. Playing around with these parts left me very impressed. Check out this video for some of my trials: MINIFIGURES One reaction people had to this set right away was that the minifigure department seemed a bit lacking. A bunch of repeats, new minifigures that don't look terribly exciting, plus where are all the villains from other franchises like in the movie? Let's see if that sentiment holds true. Starting with the old, we've got Batman, Barbara Gordon, Harley Quinn, and Joker. None of these parts are new, but besides for Batman (who of course LEGO was going to throw into this set) all of these figures are fairly rare, appearing in only one other set each. Sure, you can complain that they're not new and it's such a large, premium set, but these figures are truly excellent and it isn't like you'd have twelve copies of each already. Each of these comes with an alternate face, although I don't care much for Harley's. Something seems a bit off with that simple pissy line. Even more to see with great detailing on the back. Onto the new/newish, we get the comical LEGO Batman Movie version of Nightwing, and Alfred wearing the Batman 66 suit. I must have either been asleep during the film or have extreme memory loss because I don't remember either of these designs appearing, but I'll take them. The Nightwing/Robin has a new shoulder armor piece and headpiece, the latter of which is moulded so that it sits wonky. This might limit its use slightly, but I think it will still work to make zany figures in the future. Nightwing has a fun torso with what looks like drawn-on muscle definition, and outer underwear that's pulled to the side. Mine is unfortunately a bit misprinted and the sliver of blue in the middle hurts it. Nightwing also has a very long cape, which Alfred is demonstrating by lying down. Both have back printing of course, and I'll now note that neither head is new. Robin's is rare, only appearing in Arkham Asylum and The Scuttler. His eyebrows almost look like a misprint, although they are supposed to be printed like that from what I have seen online. They still could be a touch lower and look a bit better. Now for the really special minifigures: the Friends Are Family or Disco (as LEGO calls them) Joker, Robin, Batgirl, and Batman. I especially love Joker and Robin, and they feel the most useful for making into other things. Batman feel the most lackluster here, and in the film he actually had a lot more sparkly spots and printing that extended onto his legs. His torso isn't bad, but compared to the others he seems plain. Only Robin does not have a new head, and all have nice back printing. Mr J's in particular makes for a very snazzy outfit for characters that have a name beginning with J. I don't know why colour swaps are so satisfying, but they are. Love me some different coloured Clones, and love me these Disco Batgirl and Robin when paired with their regular non-disco versions. I also think that Disco Batman looks a bit better with the spare white utility belt that comes in the set. COMPLETED SET Somehow it's hard to convey in pictures how large this set is. The official pictures especially do not give you a great sense of it, but in person it really has a lot of impact. While there's a lot for the eye to take in (pun intended?) from the front, what with the excellent Joker sign, loud entranceway, roller coaster, and weird witch's eye, a major issue is that the Wayne Manor parts look a bit plain. In actuality some good techniques go into them and I have a greater appreciation for them after building them, but once completed they wind up looking like they came out of a much simpler set. Perhaps the designers didn't want to have too much visual noise, but personally for such a large, premium set, I expect something with a more highly-detailed look. The roof sections exemplify the simple-looking issue. The offset pattern is actually quite well done, and you can see the upside-down building that I mentioned during the build section, but the end results still looks somewhat flat and less intricate than it truly is. The middle section, on the other hand, feels much more highly detailed. The Joker lettering is quite fun to build because you can't tell what you're making until it's finished, and the designer has achieved a very distinctive looking font with very few pieces. The gag guns are also nice builds, though the choice of having the bottom of plates showing to the front on the lefthand one is odd and could have easily been avoided. Finally the eyeball on top makes for a catchy centerpiece. The eyeball functions quite smoothly and is a lot of fun to play around with. It doesn't "do anything" per se, but it's just enjoyable. The Joker sign itself is also one of the most fun secret play features in the set. However, the Joker face itself has the most frustrating stickers. It seems LEGO doesn't do STAMPs (stickers across multiple pieces) anymore, but in this case I'd be for it. There's just too much room for error trying to line these things up yourself that it's unacceptable. If you get it wrong, the look could be ruined. Another major play feature on the front is the punching gloves. Like the eye, they don't really "do" anything, but they are quite fun to play with, You just have to get into it to get them going properly. One more thing I'd like to mention before we leave the front of the building is the amount of space the extravagant entrance design takes up. It's so well done and layered that it has the side effect of leaving very little room to actually play with or pose figures, so what was a vast expanse of free space at the beginning of the build becomes blocked by the design elements. I wouldn't suggest eliminating the entrance, which is one of my favorite parts of the set, but the lack of space should be mentioned. From the side you can see how skinny front to back the set is, much like some other Batman sets of the past such as the last two Arkham Asylums. It goes for visual impact and width over depth. The back shows an interesting cross between Joker elements and a play feature in the center, and miniaturized scenes you may recall from the film on either side. It doesn't look cohesive but I suppose that is the point. The great build for the Joker face draws the most attention for sure. Time for the grand tour! The righthand ground floor is perhaps the most accessible, open room. There's not much going on, and the fireplace feels a bit shoved in, but there is a good amount of space for posing figures and acting out scenes. Up above sits Batman's cinema room, which like the rest of the rooms is extremely scaled-down from what it was in the movie. It's also quite hard to photograph at any sort of good angle, but it has pleasant details in the closed blinds, RGB projector, and couch. The technic parts jutting in really kill the design of the room a bit, and I wish the designer had used a different solution, but overall it's still a good space. Next to the cinema room is what could perhaps be called a "hallway", although there's so little space that it's barely usable at all. The stickered pictures, which can be replaced with Bruce Wayne ones, are a fun detail. Still I think the design could have been altered to have at least one more stud's width to the hallway and thereby be a bit more playable. Moving along we come to the Joker face, which to either side has room for some crates. Amusingly, the one marked Evil Plans just has a whoopee cushion looking thing in it. I especially like the arrow builds also, and can see myself making more of them. This whole section, apart from being a catchy design, is dedicated to a simple trap door feature that works well enough. The issue to me here again is that there is so much room basically killed for a design, instead of being used for a detailed room which ultimately would be more playable. Down below is the room with funhouse mirrors, which are made from reflective stickers on the new wavy panel pieces. These work quite well as mirrors and would be fun to play with…. if you could reach them. Instead, the roller coaster is pretty much in the way, making accessing this area and really appreciating it about as difficult as it was to find a good angle from which to photograph them, as you can see. Next up is this little roller coaster control build, which is simple but very nice. I especially like the sticker with the three laugh settings. I wouldn't have even minded if there was no "realistic" way for the minifigures to get onto the roller coaster, but this section is very welcome. The microwave makes for a fun build and its being comically oversized adds to the charm. It pairs very well with the bathrobe Batman from the CMF line, if you have him. Sadly the plate in the set doesn't have the printed lettuce, but I guess it's also nice for the CMF piece to remain exclusive? The kitchen area is really tucked away and quite hard to access. It has a little cutting board where Batman has been slicing a lemon for his lobster thermidore, but with the roller coaster track in the way it's very hard to see, much less to get figures in there. Up above is Batman's recording studio/music editing setup. There's a great sticker for the screen and I love the modern chair design, which somehow really looks very Batman-y. All around a cramped but great room. On top of that is the pool room, which to me is a bit of a dud because it's so small anyway and it makes no sense being on a high floor. The design of it is fine, and it pairs well with the bathing suit Batman, but personally I would have liked to see a different room. I suppose on the upside it does stand out with its brighter colours. At the very top there is a small attic space with a couple of callback stickers, and space for - what else - a bat, which is repeated on the other roof section as well. A fine way to cap it off. Here's a little shot of the furniture from around the Manor. Besides for the microwave, which is integrated into the build, and the bust, there are no other very fine details like this. I personally love the small, minifigure-scale builds, so I would have liked to see more. What we get, though, is excellent. Second last but not least on the things to mention - the roller coaster! How is it? Does it function? Is it fun? I honestly don't have too much more to say than what I already said in the roller coaster section. The parts work together extremely well, and the experience of playing with it is so smooth that you want to keep going back for more. You can do a complete loop in the official setup in the set, and it's fun to have the carts come back to you - provided you push it hard enough. I demonstrate it here: Finally, I'm really impressed by the sturdiness of the the whole set. You can pick the entire thing up and move it around without being worried that it's going to break apart into a bajillion bits, which to me is quite a feat for a set this size! Watch me pick it up if you don't believe it: CONVERSION When the set pictures came out, those who were disappointed that it wasn't just a proper Wayne Manor wanted to know: could it easily be converted? As your trusty reviewer, I could not leave this stone unturned, so naturally after building the set and taking heaps of photos, I tore it apart! There's no doubt that the Joker-fied elements are an integral part of the build, and it's not like LEGO intended that you could buy this set and easily remove the Joker parts. Still, it's LEGO, so at the end of the day anything can be achieved. Upon tearing off all of the colourful parts that I could fairly easily, the set looks like this. It's definitely a solid start towards a Wayne Manor. The inside is a bit more difficult to simply do away with, but for sure it could be done. I wouldn't necessarily purchase this set if you only wanted to make Wayne Manor unless you could definitely have a use for all of the other parts, because a good bulk of the set is the Joker-y parts. Still, this will point you in a design direction, so it could be worth it. CONCLUSION If you've managed to read all the way to here, I commend you. Or if you've just scrolled here from the top, I'll try to sum things up nicely enough here so that you needn't bother with all of that stuff in the middle. Parts - A lot to like here, what with the brightly coloured parts, grey if you're into that, new wavy panels that are exclusive so far to this set at the time of release, and of course the BRAND NEW roller coaster system that is just amazing! Value - Obviously the value differs a bit depending on where you are in the world, but comparatively this set has quite a reasonable price for the amount of parts. There are heaps and heaps of tiny parts, so perhaps the parts count is a bit misleading, but it's still plenty of bang for your buck parts-wise. There are even more generously priced large sets, like NINJAGO City, but this one still offers a lot. Minifigures - The minifigure selection is honestly fine but feels lacking. The exclusive minifigures are nice and all, and the non-exclusive ones are mostly rarer versions, but given that the set takes place in a part of the film where all of the villains from other franchises are out and about, it would have been more special to get some completely exclusive characters. People then might have cried foul, but make them simple characters like Agent Smith and I think LEGO would have been good to go. Design - While building the set was a lot of fun, the design has some major flaws. The completed structure looks just a tad simple in the Wayne Manor sections. A whole lot of space is taken up by the Joker elements that are all design and not much interaction, killing potential for more intricately detailed interiors which are what I'd like to see out of a set this size. Finally, what interior space there is is on the whole cramped ("hallways", cinema room, recording studio), not that interesting (pool room, living room to some extent), or barely accessible due to the roller coaster being in the way (hall of mirrors, kitchen). On the flip side, the front of the set looks marvelous, the lettering and signage are amazing, and the set is super-duper sturdy. And at least everything in the set goes into the one building and not side builds. Overall, building, playing with, and reviewing Joker Manor has only strengthened my feeling that the set either didn't need to exist as it does, or feels a bit misguided for being in the top 13 LEGO system sets ever. When I think about the big sets, either they are recreating something iconic (Millennium Falcon, Death Star, Disney Castle, Ghostbusters Firehouse etc.), or are something fresh combined with a very high level of intricacy (NINJAGO City, the Modular Assembly Square). Being iconic and well-made surely appeals to children, and some kids must also gravitate toward the high level of "realistic" intricate detailing in sets like NINJAGO CIty and Assembly Square. And of course all of these sets appeal to adults. 70922 The Joker Manor, on the other hand, falls into a weird grey area. It's not iconic. It doesn't have a lot of minute details to explore and pore over. It's not very fresh - being basically another Jokerland/Funhouse type of set crossed with a "facade with slim interior" sort of set. It feels like a playset that got way out of hand in parts count, even though it doesn't have any more functions or particular playability than its smaller cousins, besides the roller coaster. So, ok, what's wrong with a massive playset? If you don't like it don't buy it, right? I guess, but when so many sets come out, and more large sets than ever before, it feels like LEGO either is showing that it's a toy just for the wealthy, or it's out of touch. I already felt like LEGO is putting out too many big sets, but at least all of them had good justifications for existing and had a market. With Joker Manor, it feels to me like they've gone a brick too far. Unless you think they already crossed that line with a white, snowy-planet based set that is better left unnamed.

    Rank The LEGO Batman Movie Sets

    Ignoring the polybags and other stuff, here is a list of The LEGO Batman Movie's sets: http://brickset.com/sets/theme-The-LEGO-Batman-Movie/ Here is a topic where you can rank them from favorite to least favorite! I own none of them, so am going by looks of the sets and by reviews. #18: Scarecrow Special Delivery The minifigs in the set are subpar and playability is lacking. The builds aren't overly exciting either. Minifigures: 3/5; Builds: 2.5/5; Playability: 2/5; Price: 4/5; Personal Rating: 1.5/5; TOTAL = 2.6/5 #17: Scarecrow Fearful Face-off There's just something I don't like about these Scarecrow sets, I guess XD Batman is beltless in this set, which looks strange, Scarecrow looks great and his helicopter is good, but the Gotham Energy Facility build is pretty lousy in my opinion. Minifigures: 3.5/5; Builds: 2/5; Playability: 2.5/5; Price: 3.5/5; Personal Rating: 1.5/5; TOTAL = 2.6/5 #16: Mr. Freeze Ice Attack The minifigures are okay in the set (Batman, Mr. Freeze and a security guard), but the build looks too j-u-n-i-o-r-i-z-e-d (the spam filter changes it into "insert that tiresome argument", sorry ) in my opinion, and the small Gotham Energy build eats up pieces and compromises the quality of the mech in my opinion. Minifigures: 3.5/5, Builds: 3/5, Playability: 2.5/5, Price: 4/5, Personal Rating: 2/5, TOTAL = 3/5 #15: Killer Croc Tail Gator Don't get me wrong, the figures are lovely and the truck is pretty awesome, but the really terrible price drags this set down low. Minifigures: 4.5/5, Builds: 4.5/5, Playability: 3/5, Price: 1/5, Personal Rating: 2/5, TOTAL = 3/5 #14: The Scuttler The figures included are fantastic, but I'm just not won over by how the Scuttler itself looks. Plus the play features aren't too good and so is the price. Minifigures: 5/5, Builds: 2.5/5, Playability: 2/5, Price: 2.5/5, Personal Rating: 2.5/5, TOTAL: 3/5 #13: The Riddler's Riddle Racer The figures are really great, but to me they're included just to mask the fact that the car which you get in the set is pretty poor. The spring-loaded shooter missiles, when shot into the air, fly way too far for play, and the car doesn't really relate to The Riddler. Also, the more I look at the car, the less I like it. Minifigures: 4.5/5, Builds: 2.5/5, Playability: 2.5/5, Price: 2.5/5, Personal Rating: 3/5, TOTAL: 3/5 #12: Two Face's Double Demolition Two-Face is a great minifigure and the GCPD officers are nice, but I don't really like the builds themselves. Minifigures: 4/5, Builds: 3/5, Playability: 2.5/5, Price: 3/5, Personal Rating: 3/5, TOTAL: 3.1/5 Now we move into the "Great set, but other sets in the lineup are even better" territory… #11: Clayface Splat Attack Highly poseable (I like it) and the reversing of his eyes makes a comical expression, as can be seen in @makoy's review of the set. Still, I'm not a huge fan of the figures. Minifigures: 2.5/5, Builds: 4/5, Playability: 4/5, Price: 4/5, Personal Rating: 3.5/5, TOTAL: 3.6/5 #10: Bane's Toxic Truck Attack That marvellous Bane bigfig is the reason I love this set. It's amazing. And the Gatling gun is quite cool as well! However, aside from that, there isn't anything overly special, though I think there is suspension. Minifigures: 4/5, Builds: 3/5, Playability: 3/5, Price: 3/5, Personal Rating: 3.5/5, TOTAL: 3.3/5 #9: Batcave Break-In The alternate Bat-suits, Bruce Wayne, and Alfred are fabulous, and the Batcave itself is cool, but I feel too many parts were wasted on the vehicles and could've been put into making a better Batcave. And I also don't think it's worth it for the price. Minifigures: 4.5/5, Builds: 4/5, Playability: 4/5, Price: 2.5/5, Personal Rating: 3.5/5, TOTAL: 3.7/5 #8: The Joker's Balloon Escape Batman AND Joker in the cheapest set? And some cool balloons? If I got this, I would probably use it as a parts pack, but the value of this set definitely cannot be denied. Minifigures: 4.5/5, Builds: 3/5, Playability: 3/5, Price: 4.5/5, Personal Rating: 4/5, TOTAL: 3.8/5 #7: Catwoman's Catcycle Chase An exclusive Catwoman plus Batgirl and Robin is most welcome in a $19.99 set! The figures and value are awesome, plus Catwoman's motorcycle isn't a bad build either. Minifigures: 4.5/5, Builds: 3.5/5, Playability: 2.5/5, Price: 4.5/5, Personal Rating: 4/5, TOTAL: 3.8/5 Now we enter the section where the sets beat each other by thin fractions… #6: The Penguin's Arctic Roller I love this set! The crazy styling of the car is lovely, plus the spring-loaded shooters are well integrated (and in dark blue, which I don't have yet). The minifigures are scarce but quite good. Minifigures: 4/5, Builds: 4.5/5, Playability: 4/5, Price: 4/5, Personal Rating: 4.5/5, TOTAL: 4.2/5 #5: The Joker's Notorious Lowrider The build is AMAZING, and the figures are extremely detailed! Absolutely a winning set… except for the fact that it is very poorly priced. Still, the sheer quality of the contents secure the set at a relatively high spot on my list. Minifigures: 4.5/5, Builds: 4.5/5, Playability: 4.5/5, Price: 2/5, Personal Rating: 4.5/5, TOTAL: 4/5 #4: The Batmobile Yep, I love it. It has better value than The Joker's Notorious Lowrider, but it has poorer figures. The wheel positioning is great as well! To me, this set wins over The Joker's Notorious Lowrider by a very thin margin. Minifigures: 4/5, Builds: 4.5/5, Playability: 4.5/5, Price: 4/5, Personal Rating: 4.5/5, TOTAL: 4.3/5 Let me just say it was incredibly difficult to choose between the remaining three… #3: Arkham Asylum Great build and great minifigures, and a good price to boot! There are only some minor problems with the set, but overall it is an amazing set. Minifigures: 4.5/5, Builds: 5/5, Playability: 5/5, Price: 4.5/5, Personal Rating: 4.9/5, TOTAL: 4.78/5 #2: The Batwing Many people on the board disliked the set when it was first revealed due to the inclusion of only 3 minifigures. However, the detail on the figures is great, I think the Batwing itself is a solid build, and the VTOL action feature is definitely lovely. Minifigures: 4/5, Builds: 5/5, Playability: 5/5, Price: 4.9/5, Personal Rating: 5/5, TOTAL: 4.78/5 And now for the No. 1 set on my list… (though you may have deduced it by noticing it missing from the aforementioned sets…) #1: THE ULTIMATE BATMOBILE!! Sorry for the caps, but I love the set! The playability is great and the separation feature works smoothly, and I love the minifigures (though another more major Batman Villain could've been included). Currently in my mind, this is the best The LEGO Batman Movie set. Though I will probably change my mind in a couple of months. :) Minifigures: 4.9/5, Builds: 5/5, Playability: 5/5, Price: 4.9/5, Personal Rating: 5/5, TOTAL: 4.96/5 Thanks for reading!

    TLBM CMF's - Which One?

    Hopefully this is under the right forum.... So, I'm planning on buying one or two more The Lego Batman Movie cmf's, and am wondering which ones I should get! I currently own: - The 5 bat variants - Arkham Joker - Redhood - Commissioner Gordon - Dick Grayson And the two sets I plan on buying are Mr Freeze Ice Attack and the Batwing. So, which minifigure should I pick up? Do I even need any more? Which is your favourite? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!
  7. The author of the review wishes to thank The LEGO Group for providing of a set for the review! The author of the review wishes to thank VerSen for the Wonderful Photos and for an invitation to write the text for them! ;) The author of the review wishes to thank BaraSH for explanation of the differences between the Two Purple Ladies enlightment of I'm-not-a-comic-fan about the Batman universe! :) This review was written for Russian Fan Forum Lego (aka RFFL, aka phantoms.su) by me and translated into English for Eurobrick. The Lego Batman Movie 70902 Catwoman Catcycle Chase Review Set Number: 70902 Set Name: Catwoman Catcycle Chase Year Released: 2017 Pieces Count: 139 Minifigures Count: 3 Description: Brickset; BrickLink; Bricker;. RRP: $19.99 Price Per Piece: 14.4c This set is based on "The LEGO Batman Movie", which was released in theaters at 8 February 2017. According to the description of the plot of the film, Gotham City once again in danger, so Batman (alter ego of billionaire Bruce Wayne) is going to protect it, but on the advice of his butler Alfred he has to take Robin (Dick Grayson) as his companion, because the superhero adopted him on one of the secular reception. Together they will fight Joker and Harley Quinn, who escaped from the psychiatric hospital. There also will be many other heroes and villains the DC, and it is rumored that there is a chance to see the characters of other popular franchises (such as the Daleks from Doctor Who) in the film. The box and instruction On the box, according to the laws of Hollywood action-scene is depicted: Catwoman makes a U-turn on Catcycle, Batgirl tries to stop her using Bat-a-Rang, and Robin jumps from the roof of a jewelry store on the lamppost, trying to overturn it. However, if you look at the path of Catcycle it's become clear that Catwoman will be able to dodge both) Designers didn't forget to boast that a new type capes are able to fly an epic! Batman dashing smiles at us in the top right corner. The image on the instructions, as always, repeats the image from the box, but the instruction itself looks pretty well-fed for such a small set. Building in the process and random page of instruction. By the way, pay attention to the image on the upper side of the box - Robin jumps so that Batgirl could throw Bat-a-Rang at Catwoman who didn't expect such a dirty trick. I see that they have a great team! Or, perhaps, Robin simply slipped on the peel Bat-a-Rang. :) Unfortunately the set includes stickers - personally I don't like stickers, but there's nothing I can do.. But these stickers are are interesting ones! Firstly, an advertisement of the missing of a cat, which for some reason was photographed meows on the tree. I know who will save it) And secondly, a jewelry store sign is clearly reminiscent of the cat's head, and I somehow have the feeling that Catwoman decided to rob her own store. xD The minifigures In this small set there are three beautiful, very well-detailed figures. I can not help but notice that Robin deprived of utility belt with pockets... Apparently, he doesn't need the pockets, but the girls find these pockets very useful) On the other side the figures look great too. What a spine of Catwoman! If this torso wear shoulder pads, which hide a recognizable zipper tab in the form of a cat's head, you get a suit for cool superheroine of the future or a computer game, so this figure may be used in MOCs as well. Boots on the legsof the characters painted with back side too, not just the front and right and left, as before, that the obvious plus. This is because there are two layers of plastic. And about Batgirl I'll say that she have typical problems of many fem-cosplayers - it's when a ponytail sticks under the mask or helmet (that can ruin the impression of a stern armored robot). It looks funny) Robin (Dick Grayson) is the first Robin, who was taken into care by Batman after the death of his parents who was an acrobats. According to the comics, he has long helped Batman, then became an independent superhero named Nightwing, then became Batman, temporarily replacing Bruce Wayne when Bane broke his spine, then he helping Batman again, met with Barbara Gordon, at that time already Oracle rather than Batgirl, and in the most recent events he becomes Batman in Gotham, while Bruce Wayne becomes Batman worldwide. Robin, as well as Batman, doesn't have superpowers, but have the skills of martial arts, detective skills, and he is a perfect gymnast and a very good athlete. Robin minifigure is funny, especially the glasses. We immediately can see that the comical character is waiting for us in the film! By the way, he has two facial expressions - the smile is on both. Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) is the first Batgirl (except Betty Kane who was excluded from the canon), she was adopted by Commissioner Gordon, after her parents were killed in a car accident. According to the comics, she became a fan of Batman, and even built up a female version of his costume (decided to become a cosplayer xD), then saved Bruce Wayne at the ball masquerade, and later Batman invited her to join the team, ans so she has successfully fought against crime until while the bullet of Joker is damaged her spine, after that she became a hacker nicknamed the Oracle, and helps Batman and Robin by the radio, and the suit of Batgirl later passed to Cassandra Cain. Batgirl minifigure is beautiful from all sides, and now you will understand why. Just look at these shoes! Finally, the Lego starts to not just paint the legs on the side, but to apply the pattern on the side. These straps are perfect! Pattern on hands is less accurate, but also looks cool. Smile and wave! (c) Penguins from a film "The Madagascar" Batgirl has an additional face, it is angry. Catwoman (Selina Kyle) is a professional thief, originally an anti-heroine, and later a good character. According to the comics, she had a difficult childhood, and then she found herself in a orphans' home where cruel headmistress was a peculator, so Selina brought her to clean water, freed the other captives of orphans' home, and rushed to the thieves' life. She got her nickname from a jealous student of Sensei, which she shifted from a position of best student, then she inspired by Batman's example and built herself a suit. In later comics, and even in Nolan's film a romantic relationship shown between Catwoman and Batman. The combination of dark purple with silver - very good color scheme! Pattern on the hands of Catwoman - it's by far the best pattern on the hands in the set, and in general, IMHO, the best pattern on the hands that I have ever seen. However, it's a pity that it is impossible to remove the glasses in any way, as the second face (smiling) is also printed with the mask. Catcycle Catcycle is pretty stable, which is a definite plus for Lego bike, as they tend to fall on its side. Personally, I think he looks very stylish. By the way, if not the name of the set, then it would be unclear that it is CATcycle because there are no markings in the form of cat on it. This means that you can easely put Batgirl on bike, as according to the old films, she also liked to ride motorcycles. And note that she is also in purple suit! ;) Above view allows you to see the curved slope with a pattern showing a speedometer, which shows that the motorcycle has not gain speed yet) However, the speedometer still have cat ears... But this part is easy to replace, and then it will be just a purple bike, suitable for any minifigure. Main view and set functions So once upon a time, of the yellow-yellow dark-dark night Catwoman went to "work". On the way to the jewellery store she found an advertisement of the missing of a cat written by its desperate owners and the rare green trash container that appears in this color only in nine sets. So she walked around the store, the base of which is shown by masonry bricks 1x4, which is great, because it is a rare and useful piece, and because such a masonry at the base of the building can often be seen in reality. And Catwoman opens the door of the shop, which, unfortunately, is always closed, because the sticker "Open" is not included in the set. Maybe that's why she decided to rob it? :) Suspiciously glancing toward VerSen's camera surveillance cameras, Catwoman reaches for ruby, ignoring the diamond. Then she sits down on the Catcycle, which definitetly have not parked there before, so I am still inclined to believe that bike could belong to Batgirl. Cause the bike could not go by itself, isn't it? ;P And then on the roof and on the ground our valiant heroes appear! Robin cheerfully spoil the city property, overturning flimsy lamppost and Batgirl stay on the roof, as if hovering over it (I can not in any way understand how she stand, but it she is clearly stand higher than should, it's some cinema magic, not otherwise!), and watching him with delight! Catwoman's eyesight says "Again they are!". And now - a general view of a set, or "smiles at the camera!". :D Now even Catwoman is happy) Conclusion Pros + beautiful minifigures with detailed patterns, even on all sides of ths legs + rare and useful pieces, like a transparent door, green container and masonry bricks 1x4 + stylish bike that suitable not only for Catwoman + new type of soft capes are able to epic fly in the wind - what else is need for a superhero? xD Cons - stickers, which most AFOLs do not like to stick - no "Open" sticker, so the store will be closed constantly - no faces without masks, that means that the characters can't remove them This set is very, very cool, and will look great on a shelf of a collector! And finally, a little bonus shots) Bonus During the time we discussed the pros and cons, Batgirl flew somewhere) Apparently, she decided that Robin can cope on his own! Just look at this happy guy! xD In my opinion, he is not going to catch anyone, just having fun with a lamppost) Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed!

    [WIP] [MOC] Arkham Asylum

    Hello all! As promised in some of my status updates, here is my WIP Arkham Asylum MOC!! (Read the italics in a Batman voice ) Welcome to Arkham Asylum. Walk through the large wooden doors. (The clips holding the rails are skeleton legs. There is a security camera above. But first, take a look at the balcony above. (The grey tile should say "Arkham Asylum", but there's no such print ) Let me show you an aerial view of this place. This is what the inside of Arkham Asylum looks like. But before you walk in, you have to walk through the X-ray. All set. Now see that guy up there, on the second floor? That's Aaron Cash. Here are the two cells which hold the Riddler and Scarecrow. Here's a closer look at the Riddler's cell: And a closer look at Scarecrow's: The other side has two more cells. They hold Two-Face and Catwoman. Here's a closer look at Two-Face's cell: And a closer look at Catwoman's: And here's the eating area. You can catch a bite later if you want, except that the builder of this MOC hasn't built the kitchen yet. So that's my Arkham Asylum WIP MOC! I hope you like it! I do have one request. I don't know what to put in this section. I'm currently considering some crates. Any ideas would be most welcome! C&C welcome too! See you next time! VaderFan2187 out!

    #SameBatTimeAusNZ

    Here in Jay's Brick Blog, Jay discusses about how Australia and New Zealand are receiving The LEGO Batman Movie 1 month later than most of the rest of the world. This is greatly disappointing to Australians and New Zealanders, and an (attempted) cash grab by Village Roadshow (as they want to release it during the holidays). I would like to ask the moderators to delay the time when spoilers for The LEGO Batman Movie are allowed. This would show consideration for those who receive the movie later. Thank you.
  15. Hey Guys, i recently thought about modding the Scarecrow Special Delivery Set, the little Gatehouse to be precise. I tried to keep it in the Spirit it already is with it`s Colors and overall Design.I got the Idea for this when i found two 6x8 printed Slopes from an old Dino Adventure Set i will use for the Roof. TLBM-Scarecrows Pizza Mod-2 TLBM-Scarecrows Pizza Mod-1 TLBM-Scarecrows Pizza Mod-3 And this is a detailed Picture of what i have planned for the Inside. There is a little Filing Cabinet with a small Plant on it,a large Computer Desk with Surveilance Screens and Internet. If something goes wrong (and in Gotham,everyday something goes wrong) there is a big red Button that triggers the Alarm.The Desk Chair can be rotated and to the left there is a small Table with a Coffeemaker. Just in Case everything goes Haywire,the Security Booth also has a Pair of Handcuffs,a Walkie Talkie and a Gun. TLBM-Scarecrows Pizza Mod-5 TLBM-Scarecrows Pizza Mod-4 The real MOC is already halfway build,and only a few Pieces are missing,guess i need to visit the little Brickshop in my Area again tomorrow... So,what do you think of my Mod?Comments are welcome
  16. "Lost Land" is a place where you will find the old, be forgotten Lego. Once upon a time, they were popular and be loved by people... This is a special Lego Batman Movie that different from the others you've ever seen. From the video, you can see some old Lego set (I always play when I was a child) . I found them out under my bed and happy to make a Lego stop motion with Batman. This really is a hell, but I enjoy it so much. :)
