It looks smaller than I expected but it still looks like a nice set. It looks a bit too much like Harry Potter to me. One question though, is that a trans-green head on Scarecrow? If it is than I would have preferred the tan one that we saw in the Toyfare mag.
I dunno, i know i am in the minority here but there are far better things to spend your money on. The prices for them here is ridiculous.
I really dont get the Lego thing at all.
I can certainly appreciate that Jasby. I think there are many people who don't get the LEGO thing. There's just a very vocal contingent (led by Blocko and myself) who are all over the LEGO sets! ;D
I think the attraction, for me at least, is size. I have the ability to have multiple characters, Batmobiles, the Batcave, Arkham and the Batwing, all on the top of my computer desk.
Can't do that with Hasbro/BTAS stuff, Mattel, or DC Direct.
Since I'm cramped for space, what with a wife and all my kids, it'sa great way to display characters that I love and not take up too much room.
Besides the fact that LEGO is just plain cool from a play standpoint. I can give LEGO sets to the kids and not worry that an arm or leg is going to break off. I don't really have to worry about how much the value of the set will be 10 - 15 years from now, since I'm all about playing with the bricks.
Minimates and C3 were really the beginning of my going down this path, so I guess, in the end, I owe Art Asylum a word of thanks for turning me onto LEGO again. ;D

While Lego is expensive, the quality is undeniable. I love that I can create my own scenes. Just picked up the 1st Batman Chronicles TPB. it's really cool to have Batman battling baddies on a castle tower. If you like MOC figs, Lego really may not be your thing. It's fun and playability, pure and simple.

That really does look pretty great. I think I may have to finally buy another big Lego set. i like that bike and I love the fact that it has guards and an ambulance.
That's what's so great about Lego; they have the ability due to the format (sets with lots of little guys) to add the incidental/unimportant characters that lend an air of believability to their stuff.
