Definitely a flagship set for the Superheroes line, and I definitely hope a large Marvel set is in the works. Nobody likes an arrogant know-it-all. Model: 10937. I was on the bubble before, but seeing it built in the LEGO store today showed me just how small it actually is, which is disheartening. one funny thing about this set is that it's listed on http://marvelsuperheroes.lego.com/en-us/products/default.aspx Do you think Stan Lee will be happy to have some DC heroes on his side? The pictures seem quite dark with the black and it is hard to see some of the details. I enjoy reading these reviews but I must confess to not knowing what a lot of the acronyms used mean! I purchased this set this past Sunday and built it. Honestly, I think it looks absolutely superb. Just one thing that I cannot help but point out, on the roof are not gargoyles but grotesques, a gargoyle has to have water coming from it as they were used almost as guttering in the Gothic period. With its large size, this set can be an excellent choice for both novices and experts alike. After an incident there he is fired but gains a role at Arkham Asylum where he experiments with fear toxin on various patients.

But im determined to wait for a sale.Scarecrow actually does start out as a professor, its the one part of his storyline that has remained consent within his story line from his first arrival in the 40's. The East Wing of the Asylum is relatively modest compared with the other sections, with which it shares shares many external features such as bricked-up ground floor windows, a cool SNOT window on the upper floor and a gargoyle on the corner of the roof. ; this story tees up Set 76001 The Bat vs. Bane : Tumbler Chase. I just don't 210-dollars like it. The box contains a total of twelve bags containing parts (or bags of smaller parts), and all but one of the bags is numbered between 1 and 9 (the other bag is made out of a softer material and isn’t numbered at all). I absolutely flew through the build - I’m not one for building fast, tending to slowly creep along so I can savour every moment, but I was enjoying putting the set together so much that I didn’t want to stop…. Chase after the security van as it breaks through the gothic gates! I curse you, for now I must spend my heard-earned money on this set!Great set, great review. Apart from his black cowl, Robin looks exactly the same to me as the version which appeared in a couple of the 2012 Super Heroes sets including the Batcave; certainly his torso and reversible head look identical. :). $418.98 $ 418. For me, The Scarecrow is perhaps one of the creepiest of all Batman’s foes, and he makes a welcome appearance in this set, having not previously been part of any of the 2012 Super Heroes sets.

I think you should do a little research before posting a review. Unfortunately I'll probably have to buy it online and pay even more for shipping, but it looks like it'll definitely be worth it. Something else worth mentioning is the superb level of detailing on the roof, particularly the excellent winged gargoyle which effectively utilises an upside-down LEGO frog to approximate a beastly head - fantastic ! If so, I'm looking forward to that. Cost me $200 US, so far. The back of the box (below) focuses on the Asylum’s interior and also on some of the many play features to be found within the set, of which more later.

Poison Ivy is I think identical to the version which comes with Set 6860 The Batcave, although that’s no bad thing. Wonderful review & great pictures. Perhaps something to consider in future reviews? The front of the box (above) features the same dark blue DC Universe Super Heroes branding as the first wave of DC Universe sets. and Robin swoop into action and put those good-for-nothing criminals back where they belong! Yeah the security guard is the same figure as in the Two-Face set.Also worth noting that the new shape Batman cowl now fits properly- ie it doesn't come down too far on the head.

It's possible that more Batman Themed sets come out in winter where Scarecrow and Penguin re-appear. @Tilius - That seems a bit harsh to me, I realise that the point of a review is to be informative, but it can be pretty off-putting reading how somebody suggests that they absolutely 'know' everything on a subject and in my opinion a more conversational review is more enjoyable like the one DrDave has written here. I’m not a fan of stickers – they’re fiddly to apply neatly and they perish with age – and I would consequently much prefer that we were provided with printed parts instead. This is one I would love to purchase however the price tag may not allow it. The interior of the middle floor features a semi-circular containment facility for Poison Ivy; I wouldn’t count on it holding her for long, though….

Finally, many thanks to Kim at LEGO for providing us with a copy of the set to review. It is awesome, now! I’ll refrain from revisiting the debate about whether splitting the build into multiple sub-assemblies and numbering the bags to match is good or bad; suffice to say that on balance it feels a little like dumbing down to me, almost like cheating, but I generally don’t feel strongly enough about it to deliberately make life more difficult by emptying all the bags into a huge bucket and ignoring the numbering…. I bought two new sets (without the minifigs) at ebay and combined them into one complete, symmetrical 4-side building. The gate is just perfect - a doom-laden vision from a spooky Gothic horror flick, dripping with spiky faux ironwork and guarded by a pair of faceless, winged angels of darkness; the CCTV camera perched on top of it just adds a further, more modern, sinister touch.
