A Look at LEGO’s The Batwing Kit
From the thriving universe of The LEGO Batman Movie emerges a fantastic building set, The Batwing (set number 70916), delivering an intriguing puzzle for both young and mature enthusiasts. Released in June 2017 and officially retired in July 2018, this stunning recreation of Batman’s iconic aerial vehicle offers hours of quality creative play.
The Glorious Batwing
The centrepiece of this set, The Batwing, symbolises innovation and grandeur. Crafted meticulously by designer Bjarke Lykke Madsen, it comprises a staggering total of 1053 pieces. It’s a slightly challenging but absolutely rewarding assembly for any dedicated fan within the prescribed age range of 9 to 14 years old.
The Batwing’s design is equally impressive with its dual minifigure cockpit rotating boosters. Fitted with adjustable wings for both flight and landing modes, two spring-loaded shooters complemented by two disc shooters, you have a jet that will spark the imagination of comic book lovers everywhere. Its linear dimensions in flight mode are approximate estimates, coming over at an imposing 5” high, 12” long and 18” wide.
Star Characters and their Fun Accessories
Of course, no worthy LEGO Batman Movie set would be complete without minifigures. This set boasts three iconic characters – Batman™ himself, his faithful sidekick Robin™, and the devious Harley Quinn™ equipped with 6-stud rapid shooter cannon.
The minifigures present in fabulous detail; they bear weapons and accessory elements embodying character traits. From Batman’s versatile batarang to Harley’s notorious hammer, each accessory serves as a charming reminder of their original comic book counterparts.
A Mini-Car and More
This carefully engineered set also includes a delightful mini-car stored within the opening rear compartment of Batwing: it mirrors the film’s surprise element in endearing plastic form.
Retailed initially at an affordable £99.99 / $89.99 / 89.99€ price point, you can calculate the cost at just around 9.5p / 8.5c / 8.5c per piece—demonstrating excellent value for such an intricate and well-constructed set.
A Rewarding Guaranteed Experience
In summary, The LEGO Batman Movie: The Batwing kit promises countless adventurous tales of Gotham City pulsating in your living room with evergreen characters from DC Comics’ universe. Weighing only about 1.53 kg (or about 3.37 lbs), it is incredibly portable despite its rich content. Its compatibility with all other LEGO sets ensures limitless potential to foster creativity among children—and yes, ‘grown-up’ builders too!
