Information on the previously rumoured set has now been released by the LEGO Group, with the press release promising a full interior to the detailed model, along with a removable canopy, aerodynamic flaps and fun surprises including a screen featuring the Joker’s gas balloons.

Three minifigures are included with the model – Batman, with 1989 cowl, the Joker in his black and white outfit and Jukebox Goon.

“The emblematic set truly takes fans on a journey, as they immerse themselves into Gotham city and get hands-on with the set, using Batman, The Joker and Boombox goon minifigures to relive their favourite moments from the film,” says LEGO Creative Lead Jesper C. Nielsen. “Fans can even create the infamous scene when The Joker barges in on the Dark Knight and utters his classic words, ‘have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?’”

As an 18+ set, it will feature “the new stylish packaging designed to reflect the sophisticated nature of the creative process,” the press release declares.
