Holy Lego, ‘Batman’! New set honors classic TV series for 50th anniversary

On Jan. 12, 1966 the wondrously campy Batman TV series premiered. In honor of the 50th anniversary, Lego revealed on Tuesday a new set inspired by the show’s version of the Batcave. It will have fans crying “holy nostalgia, Batman” in no time.

The 2,526-piece set is part of Lego’s DC Comics Super Heroes series and will allow you to move effortlessly from Wayne Manor to the Batcave thanks to the accompanying Batpoles. In addition to offering the full Batcave for you to play in, Bat vehicles beyond the classic Batmobile are also included.

As for mini figures, you’ll receive nine with this set: Adam West’s Bruce Wayne and Batman, Burt Ward’s Dick Grayson and Robin, Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, Alfred, and the Riddler. With these figures you can reenact all your favorite scenes or plot new adventures while providing all the “pow,” “zap,” and “bam” sound effects you want.

Fans interested in the set have to wait until March for it to become available and when it does it will cost quite a bit at $269.99. But for anyone who likes to schedule their Lego experience at the same Bat-time, same Bat-channel, this might be hard to resist.

You can see more photos of the set below and at the Lego Facebook page.
