The LEGO Batman Movie Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522) Polybag Review

The LEGO Batman Movie Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522)

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.

Minifigure

Batman is the same version as in the clayface Splat Attack (70904) and the Scarecrow Special Delivery (70910). He has the usual black suit with a smirk and angry grimace. His accessory is a Batarang.

Build

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.

Results

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)icon 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.


  • Doug

    My feelings about this set depend entirely on whether the movie explains that thing is. I know what the Phantom Zone is, but I can’t imagine what this set is meant to represent. It’s a neat construction, but I hope the movie explains it.

    • Purple Dave

      Based on the design, I imagine it’s some sort of flying pod that, when Batman doesn’t respond correctly, pops open sideways and starts with all the whirling blades of murder-death-killing. Or something like that.
