Holy Bricks, Batman!
On Thursday, Lego announced its addition to the 80th anniversary celebration of Batman: a replica of the Batmobile as seen in Tim Burton's 1989 film, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this summer.
Complete with a slide-open cockpit, a wrap-around windshield, bat-themed hubcaps, two pop-up machine guns, and decorative grappling hooks, the model is comprised of 3,306 pieces, measuring 23 inches long, eight inches wide, and four inches high once assembled.
The set comes with three new minifigures of Batman, Vicky Vale, and the Joker — as well as Batman's Batarang, the Joker's gun, a brick-built camera for Vicky Vale, and a rotating display stand with informational plate, among other accessories.
The set is priced at $249.99 and will go on sale Black Friday (Nov. 29) through Lego stores and on Lego.com. Happy crusading!
