The Batman finally swoops into cinemas today

Matt Reeves’ The Batman arrives in cinemas today, finally giving us proper context for the trio of LEGO sets that have been on shelves for months.

76179 Batman & Selina Kyle Motorcycle Pursuit, 76181 Batmobile: The Penguin Chase and 76183 Batcave: The Riddler Face-off launched in North America all the way back in October 2021, before making their way overseas on January 1, 2022. That means we’ve all had plenty of time to devour the latest interpretations of these staple Batman sets, but without the proper context for them.

That’s because their accompanying movie, which sees Robert Pattinson don the cowl and cape to become the Dark Knight, has faced multiple delays as a result of the pandemic. But The Batman is finally in cinemas around the world from today, so you can see Battinson in action with Colin Farrell’s Penguin and Paul Dano’s Riddler on the silver screen.

All of those characters are spread across the three latest LEGO Batman sets, along with Andy Serkis’s Alfred, Zoë Kravitz’s Selina Kyle and Jeffrey Wright’s Jim Gordon. Picking up the entire range is surprisingly cost-effective for the superhero theme, too, coming in at just £97.97 / $124.97 / €114.97 at retail. For reference, 2019’s 76122 Batcave Clayface Invasion was priced at £94.99 / $99.99 / €99.99 alone.

You can also currently cop them for even less in the UK, where Argos has discounted all three sets by up to 25%. That brings the total price down to just £77 for the entire collection, which includes a fresh take on the Batcave, four vehicles, 10 minifigures and a Bat-signal. If you’ve emerged from the cinema with a LEGO Batman-shaped itch to scratch, head over to Argos or now.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
