The LEGO Batman Movie: 13 new LEGO playsets and vehicles have been released
With the release of the highly anticipated LEGO Batman Movie just over a month away, the first wave of LEGO playsets and vehicles for the film are starting to hit the shelves now. The new releases also coincide with the launch of what will be a highly collectable series of The LEGO Batman Movie minifigures.
There are some great sets amongst the 13 that have been released, a lot of pimped up vehicle sets that would blow even Xzibit’s mind. One of the great aspects of this new LEGO theme is the amount of minifigures that are included in these sets. This can definitely be attributed to the large ensemble cast for the film and LEGO Batman’s numerous batsuits. The largest of these sets comes with a whopping 12 minifigures and that’s damn impressive.
