Yes chums, today is Batman Day, as if we didn’t already celebrate the Dark Knight every other day of the year. But, it’s nice to have something official, you know? And as Batman is a pretty solid fixture in popular culture, there are so many different ways to enjoy being a fan of the Caped Crusader that I can’t even list them all. Whether it’s reading some comics, watching movies, or just wearing a sweet t-shirt, there’s Batman representation in practically every corner of the market.
That includes, of course, toys, and more specifically, LEGO. Our friends at the LEGO Group have announced some brand new sets that are up for preorder, ranging from a complex, 2,000+ piece Tumbler to a fun multi-character set with Batman, Harley Quinn, and the Penguin.
Oh, and a duck boat, because of course.
2049 pieces | $229.99 | ages 18+
The impressive build-and-display Tumbler from the Dark Knight™ trilogy of Batman movies features an opening roof, which provides access to the driver and passenger seats and control panel. Batman and The Joker™ minifigures are included with a stand. With a sturdy base to display the finished model at its best, your recreation of the Tumbler will provide pleasure long after the hands-on work has been completed.
Available for preorder. Set will ship beginning November 1, 2021.
422 pieces | $39.99 | ages 8+
The Tumbler Batmobile™ from the Dark Knight™ trilogy of Batman movies, is one of the most iconic, battle-ready vehicles in cinema history. It has an opening roof, which provides access to the driver and passenger seats and control panel. There are 2 stud shooters fitted to the front of the vehicle. There’s even somewhere to store the Batarang™. 2 minifigures are included: Batman, with a Batarang, grappling gun and alternative ‘nightmare’ head; and the Scarecrow, with a stud shooter and toxic fear gas cannister. When the battle action is over for the day, the Tumbler Batmobile looks awesome on display in kids’ rooms.
Available for preorder. Set will ship beginning October 1, 2021.
63 pieces | $14.99 | ages 6+
Super-hero fans will love to role-play crime-fighting action with Batman™ and 2 Super-Villains. The playset is packed with fun features to engage and entertain kids: The Penguin™ rides in a buildable toy duck boat, Harley Quinn™ wields her big hammer, and there’s dynamite to use to blast open the bank vault and steal the money!
On backorder. Set will ship by October 7, 2021.
In the meantime, if you want to get your LEGO fix in before the pre- and backorders ship, then LEGO also have you covered with Batman and Joker Brick Sketches, as well as a Batmobile chase set featuring Batman, Joker, and Batgirl (on a skateboard!).
Enjoy Batman Day, everyone, and let us know how you’re celebrating in the comments below.
