Ahead of New York's Comic Con, LEGO has released images of three new sets for "The LEGO Batman Movie." The sets, featured in the Wall Street Journal, are "Mr. Freeze Ice Attack," "Batcave Break-In," "Arkham Asylum."
The smallest of the three sets will be "Mr. Freeze Ice Attack." The set is, naturally, centered around Mr. Freeze attacking the Gotham Energy Facility. There will be three minifigures: Batman, Mr. Freeze, and a security guard. Mr. Freeze will have a huge "exosuit" to ride in, armed with a super-sized freeze gun that shoots studs. There will also be a power plant to build, and an "ice prison" which you can put the security guard into, and help him escape from. The Batman minifig will come with a flame-throwing gun, and a batarang. The set will have 201 pieces, and a retail price of $19.99.
The "Batcave Break-In" set will center around the Penguin invading the Batcave. It will come with four mini-figs: Batman, the Penguin, Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth. The Bruce Wayne figure even comes with a glass to toast his victory. The set will also come with two "Hench-Penguins." There will be a "transformation chamber" for Bruce Wayne that rotates to change him into Batman, and a "wardrobe" of his specialty suits with the Bat-Pack Batsuit, Raging Batsuit, and the Scu-Batsuit. Since it's the Batcave, it also has the Batcomputer, which will rotate, and a prison with an "exploding escape wall." Batman will also have a vehicle -- the Batboat -- which will come with spring-loaded missiles. The Penguin will be armed with a rubber duck-shaped Duckmobile with stud shooters and flick missiles. With 1,045 pieces in the set, it will retail for $99.99.
The biggest of the three sets is the "Arkham Asylum" set. It's huge, and will include the office for Dr. Harleen Quinzel (who eventually becomes Harley Quinn), four cells to imprison your mini-figs, a ward office, an X-ray scanner, a canteen, laundry rooms, and a visitor's room. There will be a lot of accessories, including miniature food, a weight set, and crates of TNT. It will also come with twelve minifigs, including Batman, Robin, Aaron Cash, Dr. Quinzel, Barbara Gordon, the Joker, Poison Ivy, the Riddler, Two-Face, Catwoman and two Gotham City police officers. That's 1,628 pieces in all, and the set’s retail price will be $149.99.
"Mr. Freeze Ice Attack" and "Batcave Break-In" will be available in stores on November 27, 2016. "Arkham Asylum" will be available exclusively at Toys'R'Us on January 1, 2017. "The LEGO Batman Movie," starring Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Zach Galifianakis, Rosario Dawson and Ralph Fiennes, is scheduled to release on February 2017.
