I don't really understand the value in Lego not selling or selling in way of a giveaway (you buy things you wouldn't have from them in order to get the free set) things like this. This just leads to resale which Lego say they don't like but they are the ones keeping the market going. Anyway I want one but might have to be happy with building my own might make a mini bag end too if I need to bricklink any parts.
(Edit: looks like SMC beat me to the punch on that one)
If you watch closely on Dark Knight during which the Bat pod fires out of the Tumbler and pause, you can clearly see the Tumbler is left without the front wheels
Edit - beat me to it as well
Bumblepants said: I'm cool with that I will be getting a pair of those tires and rims. I know they go for quite a bit, but it will be worth it :)
I need some time to plan the Bat-Pod MOC before I purchase them.
Even a $5 keychain?
I'm not a DC fan but may as well try
It's during the same month as the Winter Soldier promo too
I will definitely be trying to get this one. I've heard that there is a daily email entry thing that you can do as well.
You're looking at $27.64+shipping just for the wheels and hand guards/foot pedals. As it stands, sourcing one of these could easily cost you $50-70. The actual kits will go for a fortune. I really wish they would have just released this at retail. They would have sold a ton.
It's a promotional contest- by definition not everybody is going to get one. Are those not allowed? If the prize was a handful of 2x2 bricks people would be complaining that it wasn't rate enough.
Just sounds like a lot of people bitching and moaning because they feel they are somehow owed something.
Why didn't Lego release this commercialy?
Because they didn't want too. Or maybe they figured it wasn't economically viable. Or maybe they just figured they wanted to piss off a bunch of their customer base. All of these are possible and perfectly in their right to do- However, I seriously doubt they wanted anything other then a cool little prize.
But giving away any set would be cool if they gave away 750 of the next idea set it would be good. People don't like exclusives when they are connect to something they have already brought. No one goes crazy over the employ exclusive sets like the duck because they are one offs as much as we might like them we understand who they are for. But people have spent £159.99 on a tumbler and would like a bat pod to go with it so why only offer it to 750 people when they could sell to all and if they still wanted to give away 750 then great.
They are separate
Not a set
For most people, this set is a "look at this cool thing you can't have" and that's frustrating.
Let's hope Lego release a version next year
