Inspired by the vehicle from the most recent Batman iteration, 42127 The Batman – Batmobile is the first LEGO Technic set recreating the classic superhero car. Whether you’re just a fan of the Caped Crusader or enjoyed Robert Pattinson’s Batman, John Lewis has discounted 42127 The Batman – Batmobile by 30%.
That discount brings the only LEGO Technic Batmobile down ever released down from £89.99 to £63 for all 1,360 pieces. As a Technic model, there’s no Batman minifigure included but 42127 The Batman – Batmobile makes up for it with several features inspired by the film.
Some of these functions are recreated using light bricks of different colours – one that lights up an engine in the front with an orange glow and one that lights up a rocket in the back. Those familiar with the film will likely be able to make a connection between these features and the source material, and it’s an imposing sight to see on the shelf in the dark too.
We reviewed this LEGO The Batman set at the end of 2021 should you wish to take a closer look at the rest of the model. Those who already own a couple of the larger LEGO Technic car creations can rest assured that this model will fit in fine, even down to the interior which is decorated appropriately with the necessary crime-tracking equipment.
