Superhero Building Block Sets

LEGO Announced a Collection of Batman Sets for National Batman Day

— September 12, 2022 — Art & Design
LEGO announced a new collection of four superhero-themed LEGO sets including the 'LEGO Batman Cowl.' These four sets are themed after the popular crime-fighting superhero, Batman, and were created in celebration of National Batman Day on September 17th, 2022.

Aside from the LEGO cowl, the other three sets are the 'LEGO DC Batman Batmobile TUmbler,' the 'Lego DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown,' and the 'LEGO DC Batman: Batman vs. The Joker: Batmobile Chase.' Each set features the iconic batmobile with a different design, paying homage to a different piece of Batman media, such as the cartoon or the live-action movies. Additionally, the sets feature detailed miniatures of characters such as The Scarecrow, The Joker, and Robin, each of which play integral roles in the Batman universe.

The Batman-themed LEGO sets range from $39.99 for the Batman vs. The Joker mini set, up to $349.99 for the 2,049-piece, 18+ build of the Batman Batmobile.
