If you own all of the other Batman sets in the current Superheroes line, you know that you've been missing the infamous Batboat. Not only do you get that here, but a couple of bonus minifigs as well!


Arctic Batman: While I prefer my Batman in his classic suit(s), I love that LEGO have given us a variant version instead of just another copy of the Batman figures available in past sets. I hope they do this with upcoming Spider-Man sets, too, as he has a lot of costume variants.

Mr. Freeze: I was waiting for this villain, and he doesn't disappoint! Though I would have preferred a double-sided head with his classic red goggles, I love the back tank piece with face shield and the gun is appropriately menacing.

Aquaman: This is the big surprise in the set. Though he's not obscure to comic fans, he's not one of the big A-list heroes either. I love that we get him in this set and he looks awesome, with a double-sided head and his classic uniform.


This set looked great from the pictures, but ended up being even better than I'd anticipated. The boat has a nice heft to it and is a fun build. I especially like the disc-shooter feature, which works really well and is (as far as I know) a new approach to missile launching amongst LEGO sets. The ice prison is simply awesome. I love how it's in keeping with the Mr. Freeze character, and the huge transparent-blue ice pieces are really cool. The function that allows it to break apart when Batman "saves" Aquaman works well, too.

This is a pretty good set for the price. LEGOs are pretty expensive of late, and to get some really obscure minifig you end up spending a decent amount. But this set goes against that which is nice. For what should be $20, you get 3 new minfigs, that are not found in any other sets. That's always a bonus. I have a whole bunch of standard Batmans from the older sets all the same. Here we get a new one. Mr. Freeze isn't bad. I am kind of torn about this one and the older sets from a few years ago.

The highlight for me is Aquaman. He is a simple minifig, but he is deceptively cool. I like his figure a lot better than the Wonder Woman and Supman minfigs that came out already. I am hoping they keep fleshing out the Justice League in future releases. We still need the Flash, Green Lantern (not that Ryan Reynolds one) and depending if we are dealing with the New 52 or not, either Cyborg or Martian Manhunter.

I didn't even talk about the boat yet. It's alright. I liked the hovercraft from the previous series better, for Batman's aquatic vehicle. It does have a neat feature. The way to shoot out the circular disks is pretty inventive and the high point on the boat for me. I kind of wish there wasn't as much yellow on it.

I primarily purchased this for the minifigures, which are all excellent... especially Aqua Man. I mean, Lego Aqua Man! How cool is that? It's like Lego Admiral Akbar, it's just something that you need to get.

The ice prison is pretty neat. The Bat(snow)mobile is fun to build. You get some cool pieces, while there are decals they're vinyl instead of paper, and the little discus missile launcher is pretty clever. I only really have two complaints. First is the lack of smooth bottom pieces to let the sled glide over tablecloth and carpet. Lego has several different kinds of pieces that would've worked for this, although it would've been really cool to see the old ski pieces from the mid-90s Ice Planet series make a comeback. The other thing that irked me is the cockpit. It has some cool decal control panels, but there's nothing to hold Bats in... the bottom is entirely smooth. And, you have to scrunch up his cape to get him in at all.

Overall it looks nice, it's fun to build, and you get awesome minifigs. No reason not to purchase it.

I bought this for my 7 and 4 year old grandkids to build and play with when they stayed with me in my RV. It is rated for age 6 - 12 but working together they could follow the directions with only a little adult input. It would have been too advanced for the 4 year old alone. The set includes several figures and vehicles so was great for imaginative play after construction was complete. Also, I chose it because it seemed less aimed toward violent warfare than many other Lego or other action figure sets.

Let me start off by saying overall this is a great set. With that said there were some minor complaints, but ill get to those later. I myself enjoy long thorough reviews, so expect one from me ;). Let me start off with the Minifigs that are included:

*Aquaman* Aquaman has always been one of my favorite members of the justice league and he is great in lego form too. I like the hair they used, and the torso has great printing both front and back. The pants are just regular green ones and although I like leg printing, they are okay for this minifigure. The only thing I don't like about Aquaman is his face. They gave him a mad, fighting face ,which I like, but his regular face also looks angry. Isn't Aquaman supposed to be the light, airy justice league member who is always smiling and happy? But instead even his regular face looks mad with a serious mouth and arched eyebrows. Aquaman is overall a great fig, but I find myself twisting his hair so it hides his eyebrows a little ;)

*Arctic Batman* While I love the original lego batman, I love the new batman versions they are bringing in. Both the Arctic Batman and the Dark Knight Rises version are new and arguably some of my new favorite Minifigs. I didn't have a white cape before so that is cool, and I like the white utility belt and logo. I love the white cowl but the batman face is still the same. The fig also has nice back printing. And with several Cold-hearted villains (Mr. Freeze, The Penguin) this Arctic batman will definitely get some use.

*Mr. Freeze* Mr. Freeze is the Minifigure I was mainly looking forward to in this set. I like the new method of creating his freeze suit and although it is mostly covered up, he does have both front and back printing. Actually this Mr. Freeze resembles the one from the game Arkham City which I love. Sometimes the clear blue face guard does distort his face at certain angles. My main problem is with his face. I would have loved to get one where he has his signature red goggles, and he is also permanently stuck with his teeth bared in an angry expression. I would have liked to have another face with the red goggles and with a normal frown (like the old version). Now I have to find a loose head off of the old one on eBay. Also his gun looks really bad. I ended up destroying it and making a better one and since his body resembled that of the Arkham City game, I based his gun off of it as well.

Now onto the set itself. I'll start off with the little ice piece that Aquaman is supposed to be frozen in. The mechanism works nicely and the ice pieces are just plain cool! It both looks and works great! The only bad thing is you have to remove Mr. Freeze's armor in order to freeze him, but that's no big deal. The Bat Snow Mobile is great too! I like the new disk launching system better than the old flick fire missiles and the overall vehicle is cool. This vehicle plays up the Black and yellow them batman's traditional outfit has, and it looks good. The bottom is sadly not smooth, but it can be fixed with some round bottom disks. There also are some stickers, but they are vinyl not paper, so they are nicer and don't show wear as easily. There is also a little compartment under the main hood (not sure if it was intentional) and you can throw the Baterangs in there as well as his cape if you don't want it crushed when Batman is driving. You can even squeeze a hairless minifig into the compartment. Overall this set is great and I highly recommend it. I am a teenaged collector so the things that I found irritating shouldn't upset any kids, they are really only things a teenager or adult (that loves batman and the comics and such) would notice, as they are very nit-picky. Overall this set gets five stars and is definitely worth picking up! I missed out on the last batman collection, and the smallest set is going for several hundred now, so do yourself a favor and pick these up!!!

The Arctic Batman vs. Mr. Freeze: Aquaman on Ice set is one of the best new sets in the Lego DC Universe Super Heroes line. This mid-priced set comes with a Bat-boat, an ice prison and three very cool minifigures – Mr. Freeze, Aquaman and Arctic Batman.

Complexity: There are 198 pieces in this set, and it’s a fairly simple, straightforward build. Depending on the skill (or age) of the builder, plan on roughly 30 minutes to assemble everything.

Playability: This is such a fun set. With most of these superhero sets it’s all about the minifigures, and while they are certainly a highlight, the Bat-boat is very cool too, especially the disc launchers. The break-away ice prison is also a lot of fun. I could totally see using that with Lego Captain America to recreate his origin story.

This is one of the best Lego Superheroes sets I’ve seen so far. It’s one where they got everything – from the vehicles to the minifigures and even the price – exactly right. It makes an ideal gift too.

I love Lego and I love Batman so I naturally love all of the Lego Batman sets. Now that that's out of the way I was thrilled to see the much maligned Aquaman get his due in Lego form. Having Mr Freeze as the villain in the set was genius since it ties in directly with Aquaman's aquatic theme. The new Mr Freeze is awesome !! For those not familiar with DC comics New 52, Aquaman has been revamped and has become a legitimate big time player in the world of comics so I'm glad to see that cross over into the toys. The break away ice is a fun feature as well. Finally, Batman and this version of the Batboat is great. The hydroplaning vehicle can cover ice and water. I am also happy with the anti-freeze batsuit. I like the Batsuit for every situation idea and I don't think the concept is utilized enough. Since we are naturally going to get a Batman in every Batman themed set, I would encourage Lego to create even more specialty suits for the caped crusader and even Robin. Now when do we get Batgirl on her Batcycle ?!

This is a really cool set. Very cool boat which can eject disc bombs. 3 figures with weapons including and Batman has a cape, and the exploding ice block is an interesting idea, lots of ideas for the child imagination. Goes great with other super hero sets.

Nearly 20 bucks for 198 pieces and the Batman name seems crazy to me, but my son wanted to use his own money. It is what it says, but that's not much. My 5year old is happy, but I'll be steering him toward the more general, (read eBay) version in the future.
