Another great Batman set!
on December 31, 2012
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.
