LEGO have officially announced a new Batman themed set, introducing LEGO BatCave ShadowBox (76252)!
The set is a little different to past incarnations in that it’s essentially a box, a plain and seemingly boring black box from the outside but swing it open and you’re presented with a fully fledged Batcave, complete with mountains of detail, and a ton of stickers.
This 3,981 piece set also comes with 7 Minifigures, Max Shreck, Catwoman, Bruce Wayne, Alfred, Penguin and 2 alternative Batman suits, one with a moulded Cape. There is even a Minifigure-scale BatMobile too!
When looking closer at the images you can see a lot of cool new technicques, the one that grabs my attention the most is the smaller Batsymbol, the use of curved bricks and slopes is genius.
The set will retail for £344.99($/€449.99) and drop 5th June for VIPs. What do you think of the set, and will you be purchasing it? Comment below.
