"I have had my eye on this set since first rumors and pictures surfaced. I picked this up at my local Walmart yesterday. There are no stickers in this set (Yes!!!). There are 3 numbered bags and 1 instruction booklet. The build took a little over an hour to complete.
The build is straight forward and fun. I think the attention to exterior detailing here is quite good. The build is solid and there are few if any tricky building techniques. There is a mix of standard and Technic elements to give the chassis some extra rigidity. I like the stud shooter usage and the flame twirl as Batmobile moves forward.
I would love to time travel back to 1989 and give this set to my 8-year-old self after just seeing Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film in the theater.
I think the play value, aesthetic, and collectible nature of this set are a testament to Lego's continued evolvement. I hope Lego continues to pay homage to classic film inspired vehicles like this in the future.
Would I change anything? I may change out the bat hubcap emblems for a dark grey/black disc with a silver stud in the center.
Thanks for looking at my review and happy building."
