Also funny how the track setup seems very similar to the old mono rail track setup.
there's some great details like the box labelled WyldeStyle.
Of course the new coaster parts will cause a lot of discussion about the next creator expert fairground set, but that's already going on in the new parts discussion thread anyway.
Unfortunate timing for me, I can't justify buying it no matter how much I might want it.
Also it occurs to me that there might be some value on this as a parts pack for castle builders, if you can sell the minifigures and coaster parts it'll leave a lot of dark grey parts, a decent amount of dark red roofing slopes and a scattering of green parts for landscaping.
Both items on your wish list covered in one!
Oh well, better add it to the list <sigh>
But I don't $270 dollars like it.
Earth to Lego, stop making Lego Batman movie sets please.
Something like this would have been in the pipeline when the movie came out.
Regardless, this is a pass for me. There are aspects I like, but there are like five other $150+ sets I would buy before even thinking about this one.
Anyway, copying+pasting my thoughts from Eurobricks:
Looks fantastic IMO! Lots of creative brick sculpting and lettering, new roller coaster and funhouse mirror elements, unique play features, a super distinctive overall design, and filling in several major gaps in the movie theme's minifigure selection! All for a very reasonable 7.2 cents per piece. That's not even touching on the creative callbacks like the "Forever Sorting 2" DVD box!
I feel like this is way more enticing than a plain Wayne Manor set, and the reason is it's distinctiveness. Besides the Batcave, which was released in a separate set, Wayne Manor is basically just a big empty mansion. You could release a set like that as a Creator Expert set without any superhero characters and with a different name and many people wouldn't know the difference. But this set design really encapsulates what makes The LEGO Batman Movie (and Batman's world in general) unique from our own — the persistent influence of heroes and villains with larger-than-life personalities and practically absurd visual identities. It's the same as how a Batmobile set would inevitably have much more appeal than a set of an ordinary luxury car that happens to belong to Bruce Wayne. Besides that, it's WAY easier to convert the elaborately decorated Joker Manor into the much plainer Wayne Manor than the other way around.
I'm actually a bit disappointed we didn't get a huge building from the LEGO Movie. (Emmet's apartment building would have been excellent.) Anyway, this is an interesting set. Not sure why its being released now.
I guess I really can't complain - since we did get a Sea Cow.
Looks like there're lots of 1x1 studs.
But, Stickers! So many stickers! Why *sobs*? I am the worst person at putting on stickers. For things like family portrait tiles, they will forever hang crooked on any LEGO wall in any LEGO house I built, and that would drive me crazy.
It's $400 AU for fellow Aussies out there.
