One of the most iconic representations of Batman is the bright yellow, neon-green, and black Batmobile. With its sleek, aerodynamic design and siren-wailing voice synthesizer, even those who aren’t familiar with the films of the Batman franchise may know what this vehicle looks like. This Halloween season, Hot Wheels and Lego are reviving the classic automobile in a big way with a toy line and an entire building set based on it! Let’s take a look at how you can build your own customized Lego Batmobile.

The Lego Batmobile Starts At Just $99.95

While Hot Wheels’ renewed homage to the Batmobile won’t be accurate in almost every way, it will be packed with iconic elements from the movie car. This toy car isn’t just a re-creation of the vehicle either – it comes with extra features that will make it feel more like a real experience.

The Lego Batmobile starts at just $99.95 and is available to purchase from many major toy retailers. This is a remarkable value for a movie tie-in product that will be cherished by fans of the Dark Knight for years to come.

Everything You Need For The Build

If you’re looking to build your own Lego Batmobile, you’ll first need to consider what type of structure you want to use. The set comes with five pre-built panels that you can use as is or combine to form a completely customized look.

The first thing you’ll need to do is pick a location for your Batmobile. You have three options here: You can use the panels that come pre-built with the set to create an indoor garage environment, an outdoor forest setting, or an urban tunnel. Each of these are perfectly serviceable but may not give you the full effect that you’re looking for.

Once you’ve established the location of your Batmobile, you can move on to the fun part – customizing it! At least, that’s what Lego’s designers say this set is all about. With over 600 pieces that can be individually configured, you’ll be able to create just about any design you can think of.

This level of customizability is virtually unprecedented in the world of Lego building. It’s easy enough to put everything together with the supplied instructions, although things may not connect as smoothly as you’d like due to the minifigures used in the construction. Still, with a little patience and a lot of practice, you’ll be able to form any type of vehicle you can imagine.

How Does It Function?

Now that you have a spot picked out for your Batmobile and a general idea of how many pieces you’ll need, it’s time to actually put them together. The Lego set comes with a figure, called the Joker, who is essentially a giant metal clay pot. This is where all the parts come together to create something new. You’ll need to pour the pieces into the pot and then use the provided tool to squish it all around to create the finished product.

The set is designed so that you can work in either direction – you can remove the tool and the pieces will stay connected, or you can pull the tool and they’ll come apart, revealing the individual pieces. You won’t have to worry about any loose ends as the connector pieces are already attached to the individual parts, so you can be confident that the set is secure whenever you’re building or playing with it.

Whether you choose to have your own Joker-like malcontent roam the streets of your city or you want to create a more traditional Batman experience with a talking robotic butler, this set will give you the basic tools to make your dreams a reality.

If you’re new to Lego or just need a little something extra for your existing collection, this set is a great value and a must for any Batman fan. With over 600 pieces to build with and a remarkable $99.95 price tag, there are more than enough details here to keep you busy for hours.
