If you're in it for the figures...
" The Riddle Racer is an interesting set in the Lego Batman Movie series as it is a fairly cheap set containing 5 figures, something not often seen from Lego. This set, although named after the car build, is mainly to sell some obscure and interesting villains.
The figures included are The Riddler, Magpie, Kite-man and Calendar Man, as well as the always present Batman. The figures are all well designed, Calendar Man being the figure with the most intricate detailing. The Riddler and Magpie are similar, both of which come with accessories. The Riddler comes with a new Question Mark cane and Magpie comes with a stick of dynamite. The final villain, Kite-man, comes with a hand-glider build which fits well onto him and makes his fairly plain printing seem less uninteresting. Overall, the figures included a pretty desirable if you appreciate obscure comic book characters and well designed figures.
The car build is largely forgettable, and looks very generic and almost like it could be owned by any one. Whilst it is a smooth and solid design that is visually appealing and looks overall very complete as a build, it just comes across as pretty ordinary and not very batman villain related. It does have a flick-fire action feature and some implied action features build in, but I feel it could have had a more wacky design, especially when associated with the Lego Batman Movie.
Overall, if you enjoy collecting the figures more than anything, this set is cheap enough to warrant a purchase just for them, but if the obscure characters weren't included I feel this set would be very much forgotten due to the 'meh' car design. 7/10 :) "

Excellent set :D
" The Mr Freeze Ice Attack set is an all round great set that feels complete, full of play-ability, and also good for display.
The figures included are all respectably detailed, with Mr Freeze being the most interesting. The 'Exosuit' build that accompanies him is very unique and the new piece used to build it has a lot of potential for other sets (such as the Nexo Knights sets recently released). The weapon used with the Exosuit is over the top and fits the silly humor of the movie and range of sets, and it is able to also be held by a figure thanks to the clever design of the stand built onto it.
The structure build is seemingly designed to look fairly realistic, but the colours used still make it pop and seem visually appealing. It lacks an action feature but I think the inclusion of an ice trap for the security guard figure makes up for that. The structure can be combined with other similar structures from other cheap sets, which I think is a good idea for people wanting to make a larger structure on a budget.
Overall, this is in my opinion one of the best sets in the series and shows that even sets with a small piece count can be extremely fun to play with and be visually appealing. 10/10 :D "
