Earlier this week, LEGO officially announced the minifigure lineup for The LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures (71017). As usual with the Collectible Minifigures, here’s a feel guide for this series. Obviously, I can only go by the images but there are enough indicators for each minifigure to distinguish them. LEGO has changed it up again for this wave and there will be a total of 20 to collect. There’s no word on the distribution per box but I hope to have that info in the upcoming weeks.
Glam Metal Batman
This version of Batman has a guitar that should be easy to feel for. If not, you can also try for the spikes on the shoulder pads.
Clan of the Cave Batman
For this Batman, the spiked club is the only thing this identifies this version of him.
The inflatable duck should be the easier thing to feel for with the little duck head. There are also two flat flipper pieces that you could also use.
There are a number of things that you could feel for to find Fairy Batman including the skirt, the wings, and the wand.
Lobster Lovin’ Batman
The obvious item to feel for here is the lobster piece as well as the plate.
The easiest things to feel for are the two claw pieces. You can also try for the belt piece if you can’t find the claws.
For the Zodiac Master, the only defining items are the fish and crab pieces.
His shark repellent accessory is actually two pieces which are the 1×1 tap and round brick pieces.
Nurse Harley Quinn
The easiest thing to feel for her is the large pigtail hair piece which should be very easy to feel for.
To find Commissioner Gordon, feel for the 2×2 tile piece along with the walkie-talkie.
For Calculator, his large armor piece is a dead giveaway along with the round helmet.
For the Mime, I suggest feeling for the two lightning pieces. Her mohawk is also helpful but not by much.
LEGO somehow continues the trend of having mascot-type character in the Collectible Minifigures series and Orce isn’t any different with the same large Shark Suit Guy mold.
Arkham Asylum Joker
This version of the Joker may be somewhat difficult to feel for. The only things that stick out are the handcuffs and his somewhat spiky hair piece.
The Red Hood could be misleading if you’re just feeling for the armor piece. Confirm it by also feeling for the cylinder piece as well as the two guns.
Eraser can be found by feeling for the 2×2 tile and confirming with the 1×1 round stud and what appears to be a 1×1 round brick.
For Barbara, she also has the handcuffs but sh also has her hat along with the 1×1 round tile.
King Tut should be easy to feel for as he has a large headdress as well as a snake and the long scepter.
For March Harriet, the only thing you should be feeling for is the rabbit ear headpiece.
Pink Power Batgirl
Be somewhat careful with Batgirl as she also has a skirt piece although it is different from Fairy Batman. Confirm by also feeling for her Batarang.
Delta Customs over on Instagram has provided some new rumored details of the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man: Homecoming sets. There are two sets mentioned in the post with the first being some sort of bank robbery set. It contains Spider-Man and two robbers who have the words Avengers in their names. The other set mentioned is a car-type set. The minifigures that are said to be in that set include Spider-Man, Vulture with brick-built wings, Shocker, and Iron Man. There aren’t much details to go by but it’s interesting to see what we could be expecting to see next summer. Again, these are purely rumors until something official is released but Delta has been correct in these sort or things so it’s hard to go against.
If you purchased the LEGO Dimensions Adventure Time Marceline Fun Pack (71285) from Toys R Us and intend to use her in the game, you may want to return it or contact LEGO Dimensions Support as there has been reports of widespread issues with the NFC chip. Basically, the tags for Marceline herself are coming up empty and it contains no data for the system to detect. I’m hearing that this issue is only affecting North America and the ones in the UK seem to be fine.
As far as I know, TT Games has not acknowledged the issue publicly but Toys R Us has issued a stop sale on the Fun Packs and has started pulling them from the floor. The link for the TRU product page has also been taken down. If you see them available for purchase, I suggest don’t buy it until the issue is fixed. For those who just collect the minifigures and have no interest in playing the LEGO Dimensions itself, that doesn’t really matter but for those who do, I suggest contacting support in the link above to see about getting a replacement tag.

Amazon has finally started to release the final book covers for The LEGO Batman Movie and one of the books may be more interesting out of the list. What makes it interesting is that The LEGO Batman Movie Chaos in Gotham City Activity Book will include a new exclusive Tartan Batman minifigure variant. As you can see from the image above, the Tartan Batman minifigure is sort of in a barbaric style with his torso while wielding a sword. You can pre-order the Activity Book now on Amazon and it will be available on January 31, 2017.
Thanks to JoshuaA for the email.
The holiday shopping season has started and surprisingly, a lot of readers have emailed in the past couple of weeks asking me to do a holiday shopping recommendations on what LEGO sets to get for presents. For my guide, I’ll be picking out five sets that I feel would be worth their price and give a short explanation on why I chose that particular set.
Delta Customs over Instagram has been giving out some details of some LEGO super hero movie sets that are coming out next year. For the Wonder Woman movie, one set that is mentioned will include Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor, and a brick-built Ares similar to Ant-Man in the Super Hero Airport Battle. There will also be some sort of plane build as well.
Next up are some sets based on Thor: Ragnarok. The first set will be some sort of a gladiator ring and has figures of Gladiator Hulk, Thor, Loki, Grandmaster, and a guard. The other set mentioned is a ship build and has a new Bruce Banner about to change into the Hulk, Thor, Valkyrie, Hela, and two henchmen.
Finally, there’s some news about more LEGO Batman Movie sets. The first set has Bane, Mutant Leader, and Batman. The second set is a Scarecrow aircraft with Scarecrow and Batman minifigures. The last set mentioned is a Two-Face vehicle and has at least Two-Face and Batman minifigures.
Although the sets mentioned about are just rumors, Delta Customs has been right before on LEGO news so they’re credible.
