The LEGO® DC Comics/Batman theme hasn’t had the most exciting times in the last few years, but that’s about to change. Today, the LEGO Group officially revealed the latest set in the newly dubbed LEGO Batman Collection, which has previously featured the 1989 Batmobile and Batwing sets, along with the Tumbler. The Batman Returns Shadow Box is a new concept which hides the Dark Knights gadget-ladened Batcave inside a Bat-themed display box. Inside is a minifigure-scale version of the Tim Burton Batmobile and all the other things you’d expect the World’s Great Detective to have such as Bat-tools, an extra Batsuit and the Batcomputer. As the set is inspired by Tim Burton’s 1992 sequel, Batman Returns, the set also features new versions of Catwoman, The Penguin, Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth, plus for the first time, Christopher Walken’s Max Shreck. The 3981-piece set will launch on June 8th, with VIP early access from June 5th. The set’s RRP is $399.99 /£344.99/ € 399.99/599.99 AUD/8999.9 TRY/3699.0 CNY/169990.0 HUF/519.99 CAD.
