Last week, I reported that The LEGO Batman Movie Batman Battle Pod (5004929) will be coming to LEGOLAND California in the near future. There’s now a report from a reader that LEGOLAND Florida has started a promotion for the polybag as a free gift with purchases of $30 or more of The LEGO Batman Movie products. If you live close to the area, I would give them a call to confirm that the promo is going.
If you missed out on The LEGO Batman Movie Mini Batmobile building event at Barnes & Noble yesterday, a reader has kindly sent over a copy of the instructions. This Batmobile is different from the one from Toys R Us as it more resembles the Speedwagon. It doesn’t look like there are any exclusive parts used for the build so you can create your own if you have them. If you want, you can download the whole PDF here.
Thanks to Tim for the instructions.
Late last year, I reported that there was a new Batman Battle Pod (5004929) polybag for The LEGO Batman Movie which was available overseas. If you haven’t seen this particular polybag yet, it consists of the exclusive Batman tiger suit minifigure as well as some accessories like a grappling hook and a map.
There hasn’t been much information about the availability of it here in the US until today. I’ve received information that it will soon be available at LEGOLAND California but there’s no set date for it yet or what promotion it will be.
I’ll let you guys know when you get your hands on The LEGO Batman Movie Batman Battle Pod (5004929) polybag when I get more details. My guess is in a few months when the summer wave of sets hit the shelves.
Barnes & Noble is wrapping out their promotions for The LEGO Batman Movie and for their last event for the movie is a building event for a mini Batmobile. This exclusive version of the Speedwagon is different from the 30521 polybag so if you want to collect everthing for the movie, you should participate in the event. The Make & Take event is held next Saturday, March 11. The times vary so you will have to find out what time a particular store will be holding the event.
At the finale for our three-month celebration of The LEGO Batman Movie, kids will be able to help Batman protect Gotham from the Joker by making their very own LEGO Batman Speedwagon! Kids can also collect the final two limited edition trading cards featuring characters from the movie. Join us for this fun LEGO Make & Take event (while supplies last).
A reader has let me know this morning that there are some LEGO minifigure plushies that has been released in stores or will be released soon. Currently, there are four characters to choose from including Batman (853652) and Batgirl (853653) from The LEGO Batman Movie and Kai (853691) and Nya (853692) from LEGO Ninjago. Each minifigure plush will stand 12″ tall and are made with brushed tricot fabric with silkscreen-printed decoration.
Update: They have shown up on Shop@Home.
Today is the last day for the promotion to get The LEGO Batman Movie Disco Batman/Tears of Batman (30607) polybag at LEGO Stores and on Shop@Home. You can get it for free with purchases of $75 or more. The polybag is fairly easy to get especially with a lot of new sets already available. I’ve already done a review of the polybag if you haven’t checked it out yet.
We’re getting down towards the end of The LEGO Batman Movie set reviews and the penultimate set I’ll be reviewing of the initial wave is the Batcave Break-In (70909). The set has 1,047 pieces and retails for $99.99. There are eight numbered bags, the instruction booklet, and a decent sized sticker sheet packed in the box.
