Firstly apologies I’ve been head down bum up building and reviewing LEGO Creator Assembly Square 10255. Only half way through but stay tuned as I will also be adding a bit of Light My Bricks magic to the review! Anyway back to the matter in hand and LEGO dropped the news yesterday of a 3rd wave (1 set announced so far – I suspect more to come) of LEGO Batman Movie sets. The set in question is the one and only Wayne Manor or should I say Joker Manor.
Straight off the bat this is a another large set coming from the LEGO team, coming in at an impressive 3,444 LEGO elements. Of course this means our wallets are in for another attack before the year is out! The set will retail at AUD $399.99 / USD $269.99 / CAD $349.99 / GBP £249.99 and will be available from the 24th November via LEGO certified stores and on Shop@Home.
Now back to the fun stuff and to begin with the box is an absolute riot on the sensors and is Suicide Squad’esk’ in design.
Joy is carried over on the reverse of the box depicting the crazy theme park nature of Wayne Manor transformed by the Joker in the LEGO Batman Movie. Now there are some exciting things in this set that have the AFOL community all hot under the collar see below:
- For those who watched the closing scenes of the LEGO Batman Movie you would have seen the cool disco sketch with all our favorite minifigures in dressed in disco white and gold. Well if you ever dreamed of getting you hands on these minifigures your lucks is in!
- Next up is the inaugural appearance of a brand new family of rollercoaster LEGO elements. Now if you’re not a Batman fan this should still get the excitement levels going up. I think we can safely guess this won’t be the the one and only appearance with a LEGO Creator Rollercoaster surely on the cards soon!
