Last year, I reported that Disguise would be releasing official costumes for The LEGO Batman Movie and it looks like they are now available over on Amazon. Currently, I can only find the Batman costume but there will also be Batgirl as well.
Like with the LEGO Ninjago costume I reviewed last year, Batman will come in three sizes in both Deluxe and Prestige versions. The costume has six pieces to it including the tunic with detachable cape, pants, mask, and a pair of hands. The Prestige version will have the minifigure leg design.
Who says costumes are only for Halloween. With The LEGO Batman MOvie hitting theaters next month, why not have your own little Batman with you while watching the movie.
If you love X-Men, then you should check out what Henry Pinto has created the past few months. Many hours were put in to create this minifigure-scale LEGO Sentinel and is the most impressive one I’ve seen. I’ve been following Henry’s progress of creating the mutant-hunting robot on social media and I’ve looked forward to seeing the finished product. If only LEGO would release something like this as an official product but we can only dream. Check out the progress of the Sentinel in the link above.
Amazon currently has The LEGO Batman Movie: Chaos in Gotham City Activity Book on sale for $6.59 which is 27% off the regular price of $9.99. The book also includes the exclusive Tartan Batman minifigure variant which fans will want to collect as well. The book may not appeal to adults as they are geared towards kids as with other activity books but the minifigure alone is worth the price especially when it is on sale. The LEGO Batman Movie: Chaos in Gotham City will be released on January 31.
Following up on my review of The LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Battle Training (30523) polybag, I have another one that was sent in by LEGO for review which is the Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522). This 59 piece polybag is now available at Target stores in the Valentine’s section for $3.99.
The only part of the build is the what appears to be the Phantom Zone. If you’re not familiar with the Phantom Zone, it’s a realm in the DC Superman Universe where it is used for a means of imprisonment. The LEGO Batman Movie: The Essential Guide has some little spoilers of why the Phantom Zone is in the movie which I won’t post here.
The design of it is very complex looking especially for a polybag and uses two Travis bricks as part of the base of the build. There are a lot of dark red parts that are used such as some 1×3 plates, 1×1 clips, as well as some headlight bricks which are pretty rare so far. There’s also some trans-blue dishes on the outer edges.
Around the outer sections are covered with lightsaber blades, harpoons, and claws. I don’t know about you but these seem like defense mechanisms of the Phantom Zone. Finally, there is a clear dish and antenna to show that it floats in the air.
Overall, The LEGO Batman Movie Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522) polybag is a neat little set. The Batman minifigure isn’t as interesting because it’s the same one is in a couple of sets plus he’s also in a plethora of other ones. The Phantom Zone is very cool especially since it doesn’t appear in any sets but it does connect to the Arkham Asylum (70912) where it has the Phantom Zone Projector. If you’re not into the polybag, it does make a good parts pack. Again, the polybag is now available at Target in Valentine section of the store as well as near the register lanes.

Thank you to LEGO AFOL Relations & Programs (ARP) team for sending in this set for me to review. The content above represents my own opinion and not the company. Review sets sent in does not guarantee a positive review.
It looks like LEGO and McDonald’s will be teaming up again this year for some toys for The LEGO Batman Movie. I’ve been sent the above image showing a part of a Happy Meal box which shows there will be some sort of promotion for the movie next month but doesn’t say what it will be.
If you remember from 2014, LEGO did a McDonald’s promotion for The LEGO Movie with some Action Cups. Hopefully we get something similar or better for The LEGO Batman Movie. I’m sure fans would want some actual LEGO but that hasn’t happened for a long time.
If anyone knows the source of the image, please let me know and I’ll give proper credit.
The new Toys R Us ad is now out and if you make a purchase of $30 or more on LEGO sets, you can get the LEGO DC Super Hero Girls Krypto Saves the Day (30546) polybag for free. The promotion lasts until the end of the week but if there are any left over, you can purchase it outright. This polybag is also found at various Target locations for $3.99. Krypto also appears in the Lashina Tank (41233) but this is the cheapest way to get the figure.
It looks like there is an exclusive Walmart 2-in-1 Super Pack for The LEGO Batman Movie that has shown up online. The Super Pack includes The Joker Balloon Escape (70900) and The Riddler Riddle Racer (70903) but it also includes a poster that we haven’t seen before.
The only sketchy thing about the set is that it is listed at $89.98 which is way above the price if you combined the two sets which comes out to $44.98 and I’m pretty sure that the poster doesn’t cost $45 unless it is gold plated. You can use Brickseek to check if there’s any of the Super Packs around you but it looks like it’s only online at this time.
