Lego has released over 30 Batman sets since 2006, covering seemingly every movie iteration and vehicle Batman can drive. Last year alone, the popular plastic-brick company dropped a whole new line of sets timed with the release of The Lego Batman Movie. And for fans (both young and old) of the Caped Crusader, each set is cooler than the next. What better way to channel your love for the DC superhero than by re-enacting your favorite film scenes with minifigs or building an epic Batmobile to display in the office?
But with so many Lego Batman sets to choose from, which ones are the ‘best?’ Or even still available to buy? We took a look at everything out there and came up with our top 10.
The LEGO Batman Movie Batcave Break-In
The 1,000-piece Batcave Break-In is something of a flagship for other Lego Batman Movie sets, which means other vehicles like the bat shuttle and batmobile can park themselves inside this larger set. Designed to make aquatic boat battles easy, it includes Batman, Alfred, batboat, and the Penguin’s Duckmobile. Not only that, but there’s also a small chamber in the Batcave where the Bruce Wayne mini figure can transform into Batman figure.
Lego Batman Knightcrawler Tunnel Attack
From The Justice League, the Knightcrawler is the special four-legged vehicle Batman uses to fight Parademons. The Flash minifig is also included for kids who tire of playing the Caped Crusader.
The LEGO Batman Movie The Bat-Space Shuttle
Fans of The Lego Batman Movie will appreciate that this 643-piece Space Shuttle set that includes Catwoman and Robin. Designed to fit with the larger Batcave Break-In, the shuttle is actually two vehicles in one and features a moon buggy tucked away inside the rear compartment.
Lego Batman Killer Croc Sewer Smash
There’s a reason this set is a top pick on Amazon. The Killer Croc Sewer Smash comes with both a Bat Tank and a Battle Chomper so that Killer Croc and Batman can duke it out. Red Hood and Katana are also included.
The LEGO Batman Movie The Scuttler
The beauty of the Scuttler is that it shoots missiles. And a net. Also, it has long retractable arms for grabbing Batman’s arch-nemeses, Poison Ivy and the Joker minifigs, both of which are included.
The LEGO Batman Movie The Ultimate Batmobile
Ultimate Batmobile is somewhat of a misnomer: it also morphs into a Bat Tank, Batcycle, and Batwing. Targeted for older kids ages 10- to 16-years old, it comes with 1,456 and is estimated to take five hours to assemble.
Lego Batman Batwing Battle Over Gotham City
The Batwing Battle Over Gotham City comes with two airborne vehicles, Batman’s Batwing, and The Joker’s helicopter, which features spinning propellors and a ladder from which the Joker mini figure can hang as he laughs menacingly in Batman’s face. Cooler still, the Batwing fires missiles and drops bombs.
Lego Batman Batboat Harbor Pursuit
One-eyed mercenary, Deathstroke, is one of the most notorious villains in the DC universe and the enemy Batman is battling in the 6,863-piece Batman Batboat Harbor Pursuit set. The set includes Deathstroke’s torpedo spewing jetboat and the Batboat, with spots for both Batman and Robin minifigs.
Lego Super Heroes Flying Fox: Batmobile Airlift Attack
No matter how you felt about the Justice League movie, this 995-piece, 2-in-1 set will not disappoint. It features a 13-inch-long, dual-canopy Flying Fox vehicle inside which you can fit the Batmobile and all six minifigs, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg. The Flying Fox has dual spring-loaded shooters and two-stud shooters to fight the larger Steppenwolf figure and a handful of Parademons.
LEGO Batman The Tumbler
The Tumbler is a massive 1,869-piece set modeled after the vehicle in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. Assembling it should prove a worthy challenge as it’s nearly a foot long and has the pieces are all mostly black. It also rocks adjustable top wings, huge rubber-tread racing tires, and an armored exterior.
