A few days after LEGO Batman 76139 1989 Batmobile was found at the LEGO Store in Billund Airport, the LEGO Group has officially announced the 3,306 piece set. This detailed model recreates the Batmobile as seen in the Tim Burton directed Batman movie that starred Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.
In addition to commemorating the 30th anniversary of the beloved movie, the set acknowledges the DC Comics celebration of the Dark Knight’s 80th anniversary. The 60cm long Batmobile will be released on November 29, with those who buy it first getting 40433 1989 Batmobile – Limited Edition for free.
76139 1989 Batmobile will be priced at £219.99 in the UK and $249.99 in the USA.
Three exclusive minifigures are included with the set – Batman, The Joker and Vicki Vale (played by Kim Basinger). A new element in the set is a special wrap-around windscreen piece.
The cockpit slides open and pop-up machine guns provide some functionality in the new model, which can rotate on its display stand. A buildable display stand can be used to display the minifigures alongside the model.
Here is the official product description:
