There is no debate. The greatest version of the Batmobile was that one George Clooney had in Batman and Robin with that sick open cockpit. PSYHC! We all know the greatest Batmobile was Michael Keaton’s in the 1989 Tim Burton film Batman. And though there have been numerous versions of that bat-toy, the classic bat-car has now become a really, really detailed Lego Batmobile, and I’m really sorry, but any extra money you have is now gone.
Of you want some more affordable, might we suggest this (almost) equally cool one, which lets kids drive, control, and even do wheelies when the vehicle is connected to their smart device.
Lego has announced that as part of the 30th anniversary of the release of the 1989 Batman, there’s a new 3,306 piece Batmobile set that will be available for pre-order on November 29, 2019. And although you can play with this thing with your kids, it’s clearly a Lego set for the hardcore, um, mature, Bat-fan. Including mini-figures of Keaton’s Batman, Jack Nicholson’s Joker and Kim Basinger’s Vicki Vale, this set is clearly for ’80s and ’90s kids who have a little bit of extra money.
However, at $249.99 bat-bucks, this will set you back a bit. This means if you need a Batmobile lego set that the kids can play with and is a little cheaper, you may want to snag this other Lego remote-controlled Batmobile while you can. It’s not as slick as the Keaton one, and the style is more like Batman’s ride from the Christian Bale movies, but it’s only $70.00 bucks, and it seems like if your kids mess it up, you won’t be as sad? Maybe, it’s like an insurance policy against your special ’89 Batmobile? Maybe?
Yeah, so, essentially, you might want to consider redirecting some beer money toward Batmobile money. There’s no telling if this new set will sell out fast, nor not. But, we’re gonna get nuts, and assume that it will.
