Coming out on Sept 1st is The Tumbler, from Batman™ The Dark Knight Trilogy, in LEGO form featuring new front wheels plus new Batman™ and Joker minifigures available exclusively in this set. Priced at $199.99, £159.99 in the UK, it features 1,869 pieces and we have it in hand now with some exclusive pictures and info (thanks to our friends at LEGO)…
This looks like an amazing build, it comes in a huge box (similar in size to the recent Sandcrawler) and features five instructions manuals and 1,869 pieces spread over 18 bags (numbered 1 – 11 which corresponds to the number of steps to build The Tumbler, meaning some steps have multiple bags).
The first page of the first instruction manual gets you building the Joker minifigure and you have to wait till the last stage (11) on page 37 of the fifth manual to build the Batman minifigure. The finished Tumbler measures over 5” (15cm) high, 15” (40cm) long and 9” (24cm) wide but I’ve got a way to go before I get to that! My only real issue so far is the number of stickers, but apart from that I can’t wait to get stuck in!
You can pre-order the Tumbler now directly from LEGO and VIP members may get early access from the middle of August – happy building!
