The LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Manor (70922) Designer Video

After almost two months since The LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Manor (70922) was announced, LEGO has finally released the designer video for the set. It comes in at 3.444 pieces and retails for $269.999 and you can pick it up starting today at LEGO Stores and on [email protected]. I’ve already done a review of The Joker Manor so you can read up on it if you like. Check out the designer video featuring Marcos Bessa and Paul-Constantin Turcanu below. It is in a slightly different style than what we’re used to.

    For those curious, as i know i was, it is seemingly possible to have most of Wayne Manor without the Joker elements.

    Eurobricks has a review up where it shows the build in progress. The
    only Joker element that inteferes with the main build is the bit at the
    entrance. It basically has none of the Wayne Manor structure behind it
    leaving an archway.

    In essence, as long as you have a few spare bricks to build the entrance, most the Wayne Manor build is around to have it as a seperate complete build with the Joker elements removed.

    Other than that it looks incredible easy to seperate the two. I have attached an image to demonstrate.

      For those wondering, i dont hate any of the Joker elements and i dont hate the idea of them being combined with the Wayne Manor. I just think both of these are great ideas which have more potential when seperated.

      Such as combining the Joker aspects with a different setting and having a completed Wayne Manor to replicate a few of the aspects from ‘The Killing Joke’ when Batman is lured to an amusement park.

      Of course, it still leaves a pitifully small Wayne Manor that would need some serious beefing up to go on a layout. I mean, once you take all the Joker stuff off of it, it’s only maybe 4″ thick, from the looks of it.

        The set itself is quite substantial in size and depth. It is not just meant to be a mansion.

        • Purple Dave

          Most of that “size and depth” is the coaster track. Even stripping that much off probably cuts the thickness in half. Stripping all the other Joker stuff off pretty much leaves you with Wayne Wall. To work on a layout, it’d have to be at least a full baseplate deep, To really look believable, you need to use that wall as an endcap on a building at least five baseplates wide.

    I like the new format of these designer videos, assuming they’re going to start doing more of them this way.
