Although images leaked last week, LEGO apparently wanted to hold off until today -- the 50th anniversary of the premiere of the 1966 Batman series -- to make it official: The LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman: Classic TV Series – Batcave will arrive in stores in March.
Along with the announcement arrives the first official images of the elaborate 2,500-piece set, which includes not just the Batmobile, Batcycle and Batcopter, but also a whopping nine minifigures.
Now you can see for yourself the full scale of the Batcave, with its Bat Lab, helipad, garage and Batpoles, which of course are hidden behind the
grandfather clock bookcase in Bruce Wayne's study above, in stately Wayne Manor.
As we previously mentioned, the playset boasts minifigs of Batman, Robin, Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Alfred Pennyworth, Catwoman, The Riddler, The Penguin and The Joker (with Cesar Romero mustache, naturally). What we didn't mention -- because we didn't know -- is the price: $270.
So start saving, Bat-fans.
