As we’re just a couple months away from the LEGO Batman Movie Summer 2017 sets being launched, I want to finish my previews of the sets this weekend. And next up is the largest and most expensive of the mass-release sets! It’s a new spin on one of the most iconic Batman vehicles of all-time, and it has one of the best price-per-piece values of the year: the LEGO Batman Movie Batwing 70916!
So when there was no LEGO Batman Movie Batwing set announced with the first wave of sets for the movie, I was a bit bummed. But turns out TLG was just saving something major for wave 2 to headline the LEGO Batman Movie Summer 2017 sets list!
The 70916 Batwing shoots yellow discs and has an absolutely huge wingspan. I didn’t bring a ruler with me to the New York Toy Fair 2017 last month (shame on me!), but the wingspan looked to easily be over 20″ wide.
And speaking of the value: the LEGO 70916 The Batwing contains 1,053 pieces for $89.99. That’s only 8.5 cents per piece, a really incredible value for a licensed movie set containing a super-recognizable vehicle and only desirable character Minifigures!
The Batman Movie LEGO Batwing 70916 set will be available online and in stores officially June 1st, 2017 as part of the Summer 2017 sets wave. It’s the most expensive mass release set in the wave, so it shouldn’t be too hard to track down once it begins arriving in stores. I’ve got a hunch that this set is gonna be mighty popular come the holiday shopping season at the end of the year, though!
What do you think of the Summer 2017 LEGO Batman Movie The Batwing 70916 set, brick fans? Is this your favorite brick-built version of the Batwing that TLG has ever designed, and will one of them be flying into your home later this year?
