by

The hit video game series is coming to a Lego aisle near you! Join up with Batman and Robin as they try to take down the likes of Poison Ivy, Joker, and Penguin! You really need to take the jump and see all of what this set has to offer.

Instead of me trying to list all the features of the Arkham Asylum set off, why don’t I just let the good people from Lego tell you?

I mean are you kidding me?! When I first saw the price tag of $159.99 I was a little off put, but then once my eyes started skimming across all that would be included and how truly wonderful this set is I completely understood. Now look at these pictures as you mentally budget so you can afford this come January.

The only piece I think that this set is missing is Mr. Freeze. Since Arkham includes his freeze room it would only make sense that they would throw him into the set as well. Of course, I only played Arkham City so I’m not even sure if Freeze is in the game.

As mentioned earlier the set is scheduled to arrive January 2013 with a price tag of $159.99.
