It’s a good year for fans of Michael Keaton Batman, with the character returning in the Flash movie, and now an impressive LEGO set based on Batman Returns.
This is a really interesting concept for a set, with it opening up like a dollhouse to reveal a detailed Batcave. When closed a Batman logo cutout still allows you to peak at the contents. This leads to my new favourite LEGO product lifestyle photo…
The large screen can display multiple images (Catwoman or Penguin) and there is even a Batmobile included.
Also included are brand new minifigures of Catwoman and The Penguin, Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, and Max Shreck. I will have to check but this could be the first time Christopher Walken has appeared as a minifigure.
The set will cost $599.99 here in Australia. Release date is June 5th for VIPs and June 8th for everybody else.
NEW LEGO “BATMAN RETURNS” BATCAVE SHADOWBOX SET REVEALED
16th May 2023: The LEGO Group announces its latest addition to the LEGO Batman Collection – the LEGO “Batman Returns” Batcave Shadow Box. An official collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and DC, this highly detailed set combines beautiful display pieces with iconic iconography perfect for ultimate Batman fans.
Based on the Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Batman Returns,” the set is incredibly detailed and features the full Batcave, inside a display box with a cutout in the shape of the iconic Batman emblem. At the heart of the set is the Caped Crusader’s Batmobile and, just like Batman’s Batcave, the set features clever functions and gadgets including the ability to move furniture, change images on the big screen, open a vault and open a door, and several light bricks.
In addition, the set comes with brand new minifigures of Catwoman and The Penguin, as well as various minifigures including Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, and Max Shreck.
