LEGO Batman Movie Bane Toxic Truck Attack Summer 2017 Set!

With The LEGO Batman Movie hitting theaters a week before the 2017 New York Toy Fair, TLG had already spilled the beans and revealed the four upcoming LEGO Batman Movie Summer 2017 Sets before Toy Fair even began. But while we knew what was coming and had seen a teaser photo of the summer sets, I got to be up-close and personal with each of them at the Toy Fair–including the LEGO Batman Movie Bane Toxic Truck Attack 70914 set!

LEGO Batman Movie Bane Toxic Truck Attack 70914 Set Box

Among the million charming things in the LEGO Batman Movie was the glorious accent that Bane had in the movie. Just like in “The Dark Knight Rises”, Bane definitely didn’t sound like your typical brute tough guy, that’s for sure!

Having fallen hard in love with the Batman Movie, I’m seriously jonesing for the remaining major villains yet to be released, so I was thrilled to get to see the Bane set (plus Billy Dee Williams Two-Face and more!) at Toy Fair.

LEGO Batman Movie Bane BigFig Minifigure Close-UpThe main selling point of this set–no questions asked–is the LEGO Bane Minifigure (or more accurately, the LEGO Bane BigFig). With his comic-inspired mask, hulking physique, fluffy-rimmed jacket and huge Venom tubes of chemicals, this is one intimidating brick figure.

LEGO 70914 Minifigures Bane Mutant Leader BatmanAlong with Bane, two other Minifigures are included: a generic black Batman Minifigure a Mutant Leader Minifigure. Mutant Leader may not be exactly a household name, but he’s from the legendary Frank Miller Dark Knight Returns comic book.

LEGO 70914 Bane Toxic Truck Attack Set Toy Fair 2017Batman’s ride in this set is a little helicopter that looks almost ludicrously dinky and unimpressive, but I think Bane’s awesome Toxic Truck more than makes up for it.

70914 LEGO Bane Toxic Truck Attack Set with Mutant Leader MinifigureThe six-wheeled truck is neon orange and black, looks a lot like a huge ATV, and has a large cannister of Venom chemicals attached to the back and a mounted missile launcher in the center for Bane to attack from. I love the colors on this truck and also the idea of Bane driving around on a powerful ATV like this.

LEGO Batman Movie Bane Toxic Truck Attack Price Release DateUnfortunately, of all the sets that I saw at New York Toy Fair 2017 last month, this is the one of the ones that struck me as being one of the worst values price-wise. LEGO 70914 contains 366 pieces and will retail for $49.99–nearly 14 cents per piece!

I’m actually fairly baffled by the pricing on this set. Yes, Bane is a BigFig and his truck has six tires–but that shouldn’t inflate the price an extra $14 over what it should be. I really do dig this set (particularly the BigFig Bane Minifigure), but I’ll be waiting for a sale on this one for sure.

New York Toy Fair 2017 LEGO Summer 2017 Sets Bane Toxic Truck AttackThe Summer 2017 LEGO Batman Movie sets will be available for order online officially on June 1st 2017, and should follow in stores on or around that same date. Bane is among the most popular Batman villains and the movie is certainly a hit, so I’ll be curious to see if this set is a fast seller in spite of the price-tag. I’ll add official photos of the set to Brick Toy News Facebook and Twitter Pages once TLG makes those available.

What do you think of the 70914 LEGO Bane Toxic Truck Attack set, brick fans? Is this a set that you’ll be buying at full price, waiting for a sale on, trying to just order Bane by himself from a reseller… or skipping altogether?
