Batmobile: The Penguin Chase Review

The Batman starring Robert Pattinson hit theaters last week. I went to see it on day one. It was my first trip to the movies since the pandemic began. To celebrate, I reached into my pile of shame and pulled out Batmobile: The Penguin Chase. I bought this set months ago simply because I collect…

November 2021 Pile of Shame Update

I have not been undertaking major LEGO® shopping sprees lately. Instead, I have picked up the occasional set here and there in order to take advantage of special promotions. The LEGO® Group has also continued to send me awesome review material, which cuts down on the number of sets that I need to purchase. Consequently,…

The Batman – Batmobile (42127) Review

On March 2, 2022, we are getting yet another reboot of Batman. This time, the film will star twinkling vampire, Robert Pattinson. There are too many Batmans in the movies right now. Pattinson debuts in The Batman as both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton return to the role in the Flash movie. I am trying…

Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown (76239) Review

Today, we take a look at the Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown. However, I have a rather unpopular opinion. The Tumbler is my least favorite Batmobile. It’s like Lamborghini tried to make a tank.

Classic TV Series Batmobile (76188) Review

Growing up, I watched the ‘60s Batman series reruns on TV after school. The show was beyond campy, but I tuned in at the same Bat-time on the same Bat-channel anyway. A few years ago, the LEGO® Group released a large Classic TV Series Batcave (76052). I wanted it for the vehicles and Minifigures, but…

1989 Batmobile (76139) Review

30 years ago, I was seven years old. The year was 1989. As an avid DC Comics superheroes fan, you can imagine my excitement when I found out that there was a Batman movie in theaters. I was a little young to be seeing a PG-13 film, but my mother took me anyway. That was…

1989 Batmobile (Limited Edition)

November 29 marked the official release of the 1989 Batmobile set (76139). This version of the car remains my favourite. To sweeten the deal, early purchases of the set come with a Minifigure scale 1989 Batmobile (Limited Edition) set for free. That exclusive offer runs from November 29 until December 5, 2019, or while supplies…

1989 Batmobile (76139)

Hot on the heels of the Chinese New Year sets announced earlier this week comes more exciting news from the LEGO® Group. Thanks to the LEGO® Ambassador Network, I have learned that the 1989 Batmobile (76139) is hitting store shelves later this month. Click here to read about the Chinese New Year sets. Excitement does…
