In the building set, notice how the rooftops of Gotham City are put together by selected bits and pieces. The exclusive includes a water tower, tall buildings and a brown ladder for the fire escape. Even the Bat signal in the background is made by a LEGO part.

On the special limited edition box cover, the Dark Knight snarls and has glowing white eyes. Included in the box is a Batman minifigure dressed in all black. Standing on top of the gargoyle's head, Gotham's very own protector comes with a grappling hook gun as a prop.
