It’s not really a secret any more, but LEGO has officially announced the arrival of 76139 1989 Batmobile.
Available from November 29th, 2019, with 3,306 pieces and costing US $249.99 / DE €249.99 / UK £219.99 / AU $399.99, this set looks like a must have for any fan of the Bat. It’s not a cheap set, but they have definitely pulled it off.
It’s all in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Tim Burton classic film starring Michael Keaton. What a way to celebrate! It also includes some excellent detailing in the minifigures – we’ve got Batman with a brand new and spectacular plastic moulded cape, a new design for Jack Nicholson’s The Joker, and Vicki Vale.
The minifigures come with a brick-built stand for them to be displayed on as well.
The film actually has a few records as well. It is the fastest film to earn $100 million, reaching it in 11 days, and was the highest grossing film based on a DC comic book until 2008 when The Dark Knight hit screens. It may have gathered some criticism in key elements of the story being changed, but I’m not going to go into that. Check out the film again and see if you can spot a couple of them.
The vehicle itself sits on a rotating display stand and has some fantastic new elements included, like the new wraparound windshield, and new wheels and tyres.
It looks mean, imposing and brilliant! There’s a detailed cockpit with two seats as well, although Batman’s cape presumably won’t fit.
There’s also a couple of hidden machine guns (that don’t shoot) that pop up with a twist of the turbine exhaust.
All in all, this is one good looking set. Also, if you buy the set between November 29 and December 5, you’ll get an exclusive mini replica of the model as a free gift as well! Cheers to thebrickfan.com for the images.
