Tim Burton’s Iconic Batmobile Comes to LEGO

To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s Batman, LEGO is releasing a massive set based on the 1989 Batmobile! 

There are a lot of things I love about Tim Burton’s original Batman film, but even through all the reboots and iterations, that first Batmobile design is still among my all time favorite. It’s an excellent blend of real-world and comic book, along with being all kinds of badass.

As such, I’m super excited about this new LEGO set. Coming in at over 3,300 pieces, this thing is pretty massive, and features all sorts of details that make it as screen accurate as possible. Throw in some excellent minifigures (Batman can’t move his head!), and it’s going to be tough to hold off on getting this one.

The LEGO Group is excited to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s iconic Batman movie and the 80th anniversary of Batman with the brand new LEGO DC Batman 1989 Batmobile! This beautifully detailed set replicates the classic curves of the famous Batmobile as seen in 1989’s Batman and includes authentic features such as a slide-open cockpit, wraparound windshield and 2 hidden machine guns with pop-up function.

The finished model measures over 23” long, is built from 3,306 LEGO pieces and comes with a rotating display stand. No Batmobile is complete without The Dark Knight himself, and this set comes with a brand new LEGO Batman minifigure with a cape that matches his costume from 30 years ago. Other minifigures included in the set are The Joker and Vicki Vale.

This 1989 Batmobile will be available starting on November 29th, Black Friday, at LEGO stores and online. Will you be picking this one up?
