Rumour has it that a new version of the 1966 Batmobile may be joining the LEGO Batman line-up in 2021.
We’ve already seen the red and black ride in bricks in 2016’s 76052 Batman Classic TV Series – Batcave, but if that set wasn’t your cup of tea, this new model could provide an easier way to get your hands on one of the most iconic on-screen Batmobiles.
According to Instagram user 1414falconfan, the set – currently thought to be named 76188 Classic Batman TV Show Batmobile – will launch in either April or May, and will differ from an also-rumoured 4+ set covering presumably the same subject matter.
More intriguing is the price, which is said to be just $29.99 – making this a much cheaper way to hopefully pick up not only the 1966 Batmobile, but classic Batman and Robin minifigures to go with it.
There’s no word yet on which characters we can expect to see in this supposed set, but Adam West’s Batman and Burt Ward’s Robin seem like sure bets, along with at least one villain, which – let’s be honest – is probably going to be Joker.
The DC Super Heroes theme has been suspiciously dormant so far in 2021, with only 40453 Batman vs. The Penguin & Harley Quinn launching in January. An April or May release for this set suggests that fairly sporadic calendar will continue going forward, eschewing the usual format of full winter and summer waves.
As always, this is only a rumour for now, so take it lightly until confirmed otherwise by the LEGO Group.
