    Nice!
    He's a little less flashy than I expected, but I am sure many fans will be happy to finally get Flash.

    Yay for Flash!! But any other pics of Bats and Riddler? Curious if they will be new figs too or rehashes.

    Thank god. My daughter has been asking for the flash ever since we sat and watched Superheroes unite DVD.

    Very cool. Anyone know if this is a Christmas time release or target at next year?
  • HarryPotterLoverHarryPotterLover Member Posts: 238
    That Riddler looks quite different. Maybe thats just a preliminary picture
  • GIR3691GIR3691 Member Posts: 658
    It has to be a different Riddler. We already got one with a light gray hat, this one has black arms and a green hat. Torso appears different too.

    It kind of looks like Riddler is getting ready to toss a banana peel ala Mario Cart.
  • admiralheinrichadmiralheinrich Member Posts: 12
    The car's symbol is reminiscent of Batgirl's. I'm hopeful it's not the Batman himself in that vehicle.

    Good eye on the Batgirl signal. Until that, I was simply thinking of Bricklinking the Flash fig. But now, I might have to get the whole thing :)

    Looks awesome. Batman's new batmobile looks a lot better than the most recent batmobile too.

    It definitely appears to be the banana piece but probably meant to be a boomerang or something.

    The windshield sticker kinda looks like the "Beware the Batman" chest symbol. Wouldn't get my hopes up. Looks to be that same Batman cowl inside.

    For a villain vehicle as arbitrary as a dragster, I'm disappointed we're getting a variant riddler as opposed to a different villain.

    @GIR3691

    It actually looks like a different riddler from the ordinary one because he has a green hat instead of a grey one. This may be because these are preliminary set photos but probably not because this set will be shown at comicon.
  • BustinBustin Member Posts: 286
    Ugh that is a terrible bat mobile. The drag racer is not very good either in my opinion.

    ^^ If it was a preliminary image I would guess that they would have used the previous Riddler, so this one is likely the one we will get in the set.
  • HarryPotterLoverHarryPotterLover Member Posts: 238
    After the red crowbar in the Funhouse I would have liked the cane piece (redesigned from 2006), but sadly just a banana, maybe ment to be a boomerang (?) sad.

    Not a huge fan of the vehicles. But the Flash makes this set a must buy!
  • TinKnockerHimesTinKnockerHimes Member Posts: 76
    zooming in on the pic, whatever minifig is in the batmobile is yellow bodied
  • trickydicky0880trickydicky0880 Member Posts: 134
    ^ maybe it's batgirl.
  • TncatsfanTncatsfan Member Posts: 92
    Picture is a little more high res at this site...

    Does not look like a batgirl figure, and the riddler has a redesign from jokers funhouse.

    I said that...

  • BustinBustin Member Posts: 286
    I'm not impressed with the flash minifig either. Where are his yellow boots??? Or the yellow lightning on the arms??? It's a minimal costume as it is for the flash and Lego dropped the yellow boots!
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Member Posts: 4,401
    Definitely grey/blue Batman in the car. The symbol is a bit odd though...
  • BoiseStateBoiseState Member Posts: 804
    They've done quite a few different Batman versions, I'd be surprised if it was yet another.
  • icey117icey117 DenmarkMember Posts: 506
    According to the source its Batman in the car.

    Great, a Flash minifig in a reasonably priced set!
    The dragster looks a bit lame but this set is all about the Flash.

    I think a new Batman cartoon is in the works, perhaps the new logo is designed to match with that? And the Batmobile too for that matter?
  • CoolsplashCoolsplash Member Posts: 935
    Finally! the Flash!!!! and it looks like Batgirl will appear as well :)

    It don't look legit?!

    Flash!! AHHH AHHHHHH! Savior of the Batman theme!!

    Okay, maybe not but he is the reason I am going to buy that set and probably as soon as I see it rather than wait for an offer.

    I think it's a computer render rather than a set image. Or just heavily edited.

    Hopefully we'll see the actual set and figure pics this weekend.

    I've held off buying a custom Flash for ages because I had a feeling that Flash MUST come in a set in the near future. Now we know he's in this set, definite buy for me since it's my favorite DC character.
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 5,833
    I am really digging the Batmobile despite its non-traditional form. Is that canopy a new color of trans-brown-yellow-something-or-other?
  • BRCBRC Member Posts: 125
    Cool, I almost bought a Riddler Minifigure on Ebay, I'll wait for this!

    Me too. I'd prefer an official one over a custom one any day, even if the design is not quite as good.

    YES (Also: I really hope that's Batgirl)

    (Second also: I really don't like the Riddler's car)
  • trickydicky0880trickydicky0880 Member Posts: 134
    Now we just need a Green Lantern (for those who weren't lucky enough to get the comic con one or who were smart enough to not pay hundreds of dollars for one), a Martian Manhunter, and maybe a Hawkman minifig and then our JLA's will be complete! LEGO Avengers vs. LEGO JLA will be an epic battle.
  • CircleKCircleK U.S. - Columbus, OhioMember Posts: 1,055
    I really don't think it's Batgirl. Batgirl rides a bike. Only the big man himself gets behind the wheel of the mobile.

    Hopefully. I don't think there are any more DC movie properties coming in the next 6-8 months, so that frees up the slots filled by the Nolan-verse Batman set and 3x Superman mid-year sets in this year's run for next year.

    On the other hand, Marvel is just cranking out the content, so Lego might end up shifting the balance to get more of those properies represented.
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 2,760
    I would have liked to see more of a reason for the Flash's inclusion. As it is it's more of a Batman vs the Riddler set. I know you can't exactly put the Flash on a bike, but at least Aquaman was frozen in some ice.

    The yellow you're seeing is actually the steering column.
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 5,833
    ^^ I think the idea is he runs as fast as the Dragster (until he slips on the banana peels the Riddler throws at him)
