76182 Batman Cowl will officially release on April 26, as previously reported, and will cost superhero fanatics £54.99 / $59.99 / €59.99. The 410-piece set is one of the latest LEGO helmets and the first in the series to be based on a DC hero.
Rather than recreating the Dark Knight’s head for the build, as the LEGO designers have done in 76199 Carnage and 76187 Venom, the model instead focuses on the cowl that Batman wears, making use of a partly transparent stand to add structure and stability to the set.
If you’re in the US you can pre-order the set now, but it won’t be releasing any earlier than it will for everyone else around the world. It won’t be the only LEGO helmet releasing at the end of the month either with both of the symbiote sculptures launching at the same time.
The LEGO Helmet Collection has already started to expand its horizons with busts and other types of headgear, making the possibilities for future sets seemingly endless. We’ll keep you up to date with the latest LEGO helmet news as we approach the next wave of brick-built helms.
