This review is from: LEGO Super Heroes Catwoman Catcycle City Chase 6858 (Toy)
My Lego Superheroes-loving son got his first DC Comics set - the Catwoman Catcycle City Chase set - this weekend. The set, which is the most affordable of the DC Superheroes sets, is a simple one, featuring a motorcycle, a street corner/traffic light and two minifigures - Batman (the jetpack/glider version from the Lego Batman game) and Catwoman (with whip and stolen jewel).
Complexity: With just 89 pieces, this was a very easy set to assemble. My son took care of the whole thing in roughly 10 minutes, and he's a beginning builder.
Playability: Let's see, you have a villain, a motorcycle and BATMAN WITH A JETPACK! The fun factor is through the roof on this set.. The traffic light was built and quickly tossed aside though.
Even with the obligatory markup for character licensing (a comparable Lego City set would retail at the ten dollar mark), the Catwoman Catcycle City Chase is a good value for the price. The figures are lots of fun, and my son and his friends seem to go crazy for any Lego set that comes with a motorcycle. This would make a great stocking stuffer.
