A reader has emailed me that they have found The LEGO Batman Movie The Mini Batwing (30542) polybag at Target stores. The polybag was originally a LEGO Store and [email protected] promotion with purchases of $35 or more back in December-January but it looks like Target will now start carrying it as well. I wasn’t told where it was found but I’m assuming it is in the checkout aisles or somewhere near the LEGO section of the store. If you didn’t get a chance to pick it up a few months ago, here’s your second chance. Thanks to Joseph for the heads up.
There are finally box art covers for The LEGO Batman Movie home media from various retailers. The retailers have some of the usual same items like the standard DVD, Blu-Ray combos, and 4K Ultra HD but there are also exclusives. It looks like Walmart has a couple of store exclusive versions including the Blu-Ray Combo which includes a lunchbag. They also have a Walmart version of the DVD as well as a Special Edition available as well.
As I mentioned before, Target also has an exclusive which includes the Batgirl (30612) minifigure polybag in which she is too is exclusive with a new head. The combo pack also includes some postcards as well.
The home media is now available for pre-order and it looks like the release date is June 13. Thanks to Bryan for the heads up.
For today only, LEGO Stores are celebrating April Fool’s Day with a special The LEGO Batman Movie poster giveaway. Head to the store and tell a Brick Specialist the secret password of “Batman Smells” and you can get a free Joker character poster, while supplies last. This is the only way to get the Joker poster and it is not valid online.
Thanks to Justin for the heads up.

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.
