    Is this promotion available in Europe?

    • Germany had it last month. I’m not sure about other countries.

      • Ehssan

        And it was sold out within a week… 😀

        • Purple Dave

          Each of these sets is only supposed to be available for one week, at which point the next set replaces it and any excess stock is likely to be sold as a regular set.

        I just found out from another source that the minifigure packs will be in UK stores on November 1st.

    They ran out in about a day in Australia! A great set, but I think it’s a real shame that LEGO didn’t bother with the Easter Bunny Batman’s pink cape.

    • Purple Dave

      I had a spare Pink Power Batgirl from my case of TLBM CMFs, so I gave him that cape for now. It may not be perfect, but it is purist (says the guy who keeps a bunch of yellow Sharpies to fix their corpse-like pallor).

        Heh, great idea! Second PPB just ordered. Cheers. 🙂

        • Purple Dave

          An iron-ic bonus to this is that the PPB cape is likely to be pristine, where I’ve been trying to dry-press the Wizbat and Bat-urion capes with only moderate success for a couple days now. The Wizbat collar is staying flat now, but the two spongy capes seem to have permanent creases. I didn’t even think you _could_ press a permanent crease into the new spongy capes, but now I’m entertaining thoughts of swapping the capes out for new starched capes, or trying more aggressive methods of flattening the originals.

    Managed to buy one and get one for free with the same purchase (along with some batpods found), but my brother tried to go later, got a manager who said NO purchases until the promo is over, so I guess I got lucky.

  • ModifiedJason

    Picked up two with two different purchases today. And for some reason the systems were still coded for last weeks 20% off promo so double win.

    • ayuken

      20% off the Batman sets till Oct 12. Very strict with the per purchase/customer as this weeks set is really popular! Picked up a Batmobile.

      • Purple Dave

        It wasn’t just TLBM sets. Two of the Justice League movie sets and several Marvel sets were too. All told I picked up a Knightcrawler and two Aquaman JL sets, from TLBM I got two Scarecrow, one Bane, one Two-Face, and the Batwing sets, all of which were marked down. Except for the Batwing, they were all marked down from MSRP, and the Batwing only cost $4 more than [email protected]’s sale price. It got me a fifth Bricktober Batmen pack, so totally worth it. I should be safe from ever having to buy any more at secondary prices.

    We were so excited to get this set. Took the figures out and the wizard one wouldn’t stay together at all. I’ve never seen a poor quality LEGO piece in my life, so we returned it to the store, and the same thing with subsequent sets. Does anyone have one where the wizard stays together the way new LEGO pieces should?

    • Purple Dave

      It’s a common problem with any minifig that uses a slope brick as a skirt/robe, though Wizbat does seem a touch more fragile than normal. The only way they’ll stop it for good is to make a dedicated slope brick with the same pegs as regular legs. For Wizbat, there’s not much that can be done.

      • Echota Keller

        We’ve never had this issue with any of the previous minifigs with slope bricks, usually they fit really tightly. These literally fell apart when you picked them up, like some cheap plastic knock-offs of LEGO. I wrote to LEGO to let them know about it too. Hopefully this is a one-off and not a preview of QC slacking at LEGO.

        • Purple Dave

          If they were CMFs I’d say to chalk it up to Chinese manufacture, but the one I opened isn’t even that solid a connection. The slope brick also doesn’t appear to match the mold marks from a recent CMF slope. Best guess is that it’s at least partly the packaging that’s to blame. I picked up a fifth copy today, and after a note from a fellow LUG member, I actually paid attention to how badly some of these minifigs are assembled. Besides cowls and heads that are rotated a bit out of alignment with each other and the torsos, I spotted one instance where the Wizbat torso appeared to be held at a slight angle to the slope brick. Considering how tight these minifig pockets are, that has to put a ton of stress on the stud connection. Best advice I can give is to leave Wizbat disassembled for a few days and see if the plastic relaxes back to original shape and the clutch strength recovers.
