First look at LEGO Batman 76161 1989 Batwing

Bat fanatics can get a first, close-up look at the enormous new LEGO Batman set, 76161 1989 Batwing.

Originally unveiled on Batman Day, the latest LEGO set based on Tim Burton’s iconic 1989 movie will hit shelves on October 21. It follows on from last year’s 76139 1989 Batmobile, which we described in our review as “everything Batman fans would hope for.”

The question is: will the Batwing manage the same feat? If you can’t wait until its release to find out, David at Solid Brix Studios has offered fans a first look at the set in his in-depth review.

“I have to say, my first impressions are, ‘Wow, this thing is legitimately huge!'” The YouTuber says. “It’s way, way bigger than I think a lot of you are going to imagine it to be. The pictures don’t do it justice, they really don’t.”

Look out for our full review of 76161 1989 Batwing soon. In the meantime, here’s a full gallery of images for the mammoth tribute to Michael Keaton’s Batman.

The 2,363-piece set measures a whopping 52cm long and 58cm wide. And it comes with multiple display options: as well as placing it on a buildable stand, you can also wall-mount it. 76161 1989 Batwing will be priced at £179.99 in the UK and $199.99 in the USA when it launches for VIPs on October 21.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
