Billund, May 16th, 2023: The LEGO Group announces its latest addition to the LEGO Batman Collection – the LEGO “Batman Returns” Batcave Shadow Box. An official collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and DC, this highly detailed set combines beautiful display pieces with iconic iconography perfect for ultimate Batman fans.
Based on the Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Batman Returns,” the set is incredibly detailed and features the full Batcave, inside a display box with a cutout in the shape of the iconic Batman emblem. At the heart of the set is the Caped Crusader’s Batmobile and, just like Batman’s Batcave, the set features clever functions and gadgets including the ability to move furniture, change images on the big screen, open a vault and open a door, and several light bricks.
In addition, the set comes with brand new minifigures of Catwoman and The Penguin, as well as various minifigures including Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, and Max Shreck.
A brisk $449.99 USD gets you this absolutely astonishing set on June 5th, 2023.
If I had the money to blow and the space to house it, I’d get this in a heartbeat. It’s truly a work of art.
I joke often about the reason why toys now are so cool to adults of my age group is not because we’re in some sort of never-ending-childhood (ok maybe we are a bit), but because people are age are making the decisions now.
This may be one of the purest versions of that, hybridizing toy, art, presentation piece and commercial good. Amazing work by the designers.
