During the stunning event that was SDCC 2016, LEGO released the trailer and poster for the LEGO Batman Movie and also announced the first 2 LEGO sets that would accompany that movie.
Yep, yet another version of the Batmobile, this time with an entirely new design. Set 70905 will include not only this enormous, drag-racer style Batmobile, but the 5 minifigures seen in the picture. Batman is a no-brainer, but Robin is a bit of a nice surprise. On the bad-guy side, we get Man-Bat and the Kabuku Twins who don’t get much love in Batman movies. The Batmobile features lots of details and non-canon styling, such as the words “The Speedwagon” on the side panel under the cockpit.
This set is definitely smaller than the Batmobile in terms of pieces and minifigures, but has such a great look and collection of colors it’s sure to be a favorite set. The lowrider is dressed like the Joker with a purple body and neon green headpiece (roof vs hair, you get it) and may feature some surprise movement in the Technic pieces that are used. Only 3 minifigures but all are highly detailed. Harley and Batgirl have printing on the sides of their legs, and all 3 have very unique hair pieces with a ton of detail.
Together I think these 2 sets go really well together and bode well for the rest of sets to be based on the movie.
