76188 Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile and 76180 Batman vs. The Joker: Batmobile Chase were first revealed by a Vietnamese retailer earlier this week, but the LEGO Group has now uploaded both of the Caped Crusader’s new brick-built rides to its official online store.
These are the first regular LEGO Batman sets of 2021 (40453 Batman vs. The Penguin & Harley Quinn doesn’t really count), and despite their similar size and price tags, each brings something completely different to the Bat-table.
76180 Batman vs. The Joker: Batmobile Chase is a 136-piece 4+ set that bundles in vehicles for both eponymous characters, along with Batgirl on a skateboard, because… why not? (Or, because the LEGO Group still has a bunch left over from last year’s dismal 76160 Mobile Bat Base.)
Meanwhile, 76188 Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile lifts the best bit from 76052 Batman Classic TV Series Batcave and serves it up as its own set, complete with Adam West’s Batman and Cesar Romero’s Joker. And while it might say 7+ on the box, that display base suggests the LEGO Group is aiming for a much older audience with this 1960s-inspired model.
You’ll be able to pick up both sets on April 26, along with two new Star Wars helmets, 75306 Imperial Probe Droid, three new Minions sets, and two new Marvel busts. 76188 Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile will set you back £34.99 / $29.99 / €34.99, while 76180 Batman vs. The Joker: Batmobile Chase costs £24.99 / $29.99 / €29.99.
