In March, LEGO will release the DC Comics Superheroes Batcave set based on the 1966 television series. While we were able to see some blurry images last week, the official images show the glory that comes when one opens the box.
The Wayne Manor section of the model features Bruce Wayne’s study with the iconic Batphone, a hinged Shakespeare bust with secret button underneath, sliding false bookcase to access the Batpoles, and assorted elements including decorated wallpaper bricks, wall lamps, framed portraits, a framed fish and trophies. It also includes an exterior wall for climbing, with an opening roof for easy access to the Batpoles and an aerial element.
There is so much more to this 2526 piece set that will keep kids and adults entertained for hours. Probably my favorite part of this set isn’t the red phone, or the hidden Batpole, but the near perfect transformation of actors into Minifigure form. Batman’s cowl and Joker’s painted mustache are perfect.
There’s no word on price, yet, but I’m guessing it will be in the $150-$250 range.
UPDATE: LEGO Shop has included the set (buried way down the list of sets) and have the price for the set listed at 269.99 and will be available on March 1st. If you are a LEGO VIP, you may be able to buy the set a few days early.
