The new Bricktober exclusive set brings four new The LEGO Batman Movie minifigures to the line-up – are they worth adding to the collection?
Price: £14.99 Pieces: 27 Available: Now
The four Bricktober sets that are available exclusively at Toys R Us each contain four exclusive minifigures in a window box package. It is similar to the style of Bricktober set that Toys R Us sold last year, but with each pack centred around a specific theme.
The LEGO Batman Movie set contains Money Suit Batman, Easter Batman, Baturion and Wizbat. Fans may be surprised to find this level of exclusivity in a promotion based product, as exclusive minifigures with lots of printing and accessories are usually reserved for the Collectible Minifigures line. It seems though that the designers and planners at the LEGO Group were so pleased with the concepts devised for The LEGO Batman Movie that they decided to release as many physical minifigures based on them as possible.
Money Suit Batman is printed with dollar bills all over, including the arms and sides of the legs. Easter Batman was teased in the key light range and is finally available as an actual minifigure, with a white utility belt and an egg accessory that can be clipped to a stud. Baturion is based on a Roman centurion, with a delightful shield printed with bat symbols. Finally Wizbat manages to keep the printing aligned from the torso to the brick and sports an awesome cape in the new softer fabric style.
This set of minifigures is an absolute must-have for fans of The LEGO Batman Movie. There were so many amazing designs in the film and so many amazing designs cut from the film, that the more the LEGO Group release in different ways, the better. These exclusive Bricktober sets generally include minifigures with colour changes or deco tweaks, so to have a pack full of awesome, original minifigures makes the £14.99 pretty easy to hand over.
