LEGO have revealed the massive 70922 The Joker Manor set and it’ll be released on Black Friday
LEGO revealed the upcoming 70922 The Joker Manor set at the Time to Play Holiday Showcase in New York yesterday. The large set feature 3444 pieces, comes with 10 minifigures and will set you back £249.99.
The new LEGO Batman Movie set is due for release this Black Friday (November 24, 2017) and is based on one of the more memorable moments of the LEGO Batman movie when The Joker takes control of Wayne Manor and decorates it accordingly.
Joker Manor (70922) is jam packed with detail including fun house mirrors, buildable grand piano, rocking Joker sign, music studio with loudspeakers and a giant Joker face with trapdoor and slider. Most notable of all is the purple rollercoaster climbing up and around the entire manor itself. The rollercoaster features working carts that the minifigures can ride in and it also introduces brand new rollercoaster track elements which are looked at in some detail over at Brickset.
There will be no VIP early access to the set, this could be due to production schedules and the nearing release date or it could be a consequence of the difficulties fans had with VIP early access for the UCS Millennium Falcon, ultimately we’ll never know but speculation is abound.
You can find the full press release from LEGO alongside three interior shots of the set below.

This set while impressive does seem to utilise a considerable amount of stickers as you’ll see in the interior shots below. Stickers are always divisive when it comes to LEGO sets but it’s always disappointing (for me) to see so many being used on a set as big as this.
All in all this appears to be a unique set with a lot of quirks and interesting play features, it’s certainly striking. Is this a set you’d be interested in? Let us know below.
