LEGO’s 1989 Batmobile Set Is Massively Awesome

Tim Burton’s Batman hit theaters 30 years ago and LEGO is marking the occasion by releasing a Batmobile replica that consists of over 3,300 pieces.

Set to be launched on Black Friday, the Batmobile measures over 23 inches (60 cm) long and is pretty faithful to the iconic movie car. As you can see, it has pronounced front fenders, a unique grille and massive side scoops. There’s even a slide open cockpit, a detailed interior and “decorative grappling hooks.”

The highlights don’t end there as the replica has a number of authentic details from the movie. These include hidden machine guns, that pop up from the under the hood when you turn the exhaust turbine.

Besides the Batmobile, the set come with three minifigs including Batman, The Joker and Vicki Vale. All of them are new for 2019 and feature a design that is inspired by the movie.

Since the model was meant to be a display piece, it comes with a rotating stand and an information plaque. The latter notes the size of the movie car and says the model could accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.7 seconds. The set also comes with a stand and accessories for the minifigs.

The set costs $249.99 ($299.99 CAD / £219.99 / €249.99) and customers who purchase one between November 29th and December 5th will receive a mini replica while supplies last. It consists of 366 pieces and is less detailed than the full size model. However, it has some interesting features of its own including functional machine guns that fire small plastic pieces.

    I love LEGO as much as the next guy…but $250 is a bit much IMO. That’s in the range of a very nice diecast model.

    • actually the price to part ratio is pretty good for a licensed theme set.
