No One More Excited About Lego's New 1960s Batcave Set Than Boy Wonder

by ParentCo. January 12, 2016

Holy WHAT, Batman?! I would have posted this an hour ago but I've been entirely distracted by ALL the rad throwback details in the new Lego Batman Batcave!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic Batman TV series, Lego has revealed it will release a comprehensive retro Batcave set in March. Save your pennies because this beauty comes in at $270. But, hey, don't sweat the price, it'll be well worth putting aside 600 pennies a day (for the next 45 days), and not just for the hours of inevitable Batcave fun. Keep in mind that the more popular Lego sets -- keep all the parts! -- will eventually fetch a better return than gold. Ok, WHATEVER WITH THE FINANCES, check out the set! Batcave Lego Minifigs First up: A smattering of throwback minifigs including Batman and Robin, both plainsclothes and suited-up. One disappointment here: the one and only Eartha Kitt Catgirl. WHERE IS SHE? (All due respect to Julie Newmar.) Batman Robin Batcave Lego Look at Robin, he's SO pumped to be riding down the golden pole from Wayne Manor to the secret hideout. And yes, YES, the poles are labeled (see below). Nobody can use Batman's pole except Batman, ok guys? Lego Batcave So that you know, YES, there's a retro Batmobile, a retro Batcycle, AND a retro Batcopter. BOOM. That's pretty much all you need. But, wait, there's MORE. Wayne Manor Lest ye forget, Wayne Manor is a place of great elegance and many leather-bound books. Oh, and a red phone for when Bruce gets the call. Lego Batcave Box The count comes in at a whopping 2526 pieces, so settle in, families. Say it with me: na na na na na na na BAAAATMMMANN! Source: Gizmodo, Comic Book Resources
