In line with the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection, this is literally just Bruce Wayne’s headgear. But unlike those buckets, Batman’s mask doesn’t cover his entire head – which means we’re left with transparent bricks to fill in where the Caped Crusader’s face would usually appear.
You’ll have to decide for yourself how effective that design choice has been, but French LEGO Fan Media Hoth Bricks – which has received and reviewed an early copy of the set – doesn’t care much for the set as a whole. “This Batman mask is not a complete failure, there are some good ideas, but the finish is far from convincing in my opinion,” writes Will (courtesy of Google Translate).
You can check out the full (mostly unfavourable) review over at Hoth Bricks. If you’re still keen to pick it up for yourself, the 410-piece 76182 Batman Cowl will launch alongside Marvel’s 76187 Venom and the two new Star Wars helmets – 75304 Darth Vader Helmet and 75305 Scout Trooper Helmet – on April 26, for £54.99 / $59.99 / €59.99.
That’s just after the current double VIP points promo ends, so if you’ve got anything on your shopping list that’s available now, you’re better off making two separate orders. Happily, 76182 Batman Cowl alone will still net you free delivery later this month.
