Yeah, we get a Batpod!
" This is LEGO's take on the Batpod, unofficially as they call it a Batcycle, but clearly it's the Batpod. However the instructions have it clearly missasembled. As is the Batpod is too low the ground, the weapons are in the rear, and it has a strange strobe light hanging over the rear wheel. Fortunately this can all be corrected with the provided pieces. Simply remove the weapons from the rear wheel assembly and attach them to the front wheel assemble. Then flip the rear wheel assembly 180 degrees to provide lift and very necessary clearance. Finally, remove the strange strobe light if you so desire. Bam: Batpod!
Harley's bike is nice, but it too suffers from clearance issues which can be resolved by flipping the front wheel assembly 180 degrees.
Deadshot is nice but I feel like the figure was added to either justify the price or raise it. Personally I would have preferred Firefly in his place as he is known for having a jet pack with wings. Now that would have been cool.
Still, this is a great set, and I appreciate LEGO putting forth the effort. However, I'd like to see LEGO take a break from the New 52 style and give us a run of Batman: The Animated Series, the series that brought us Harley Quinn. You know you want to, LEGO. "
