OMFGBATMANLEGO!

Posted on Thursday, April 27th, 2006

Dave!With all the DSL problems I've been having lately, I've suddenly got more time to get caught up on important stuff. LIKE BATMAN LEGO!!

Batman Lego is hella-cool! Right now there are four Bat-tastic sets you can choose from. The Bat-Dragster is a bit lame (although it does come with Catwoman on her Cat-Cycle), but the other three rock!

There's Bat-Plane...

Batplane

And Bat-Mobile...

Batmobile

And Bat-Boat...

Batboat

And, of course, you get little Bat-People to to populate your Bat-Universe. Depending on which set you buy, your get a Two-Face, Killer Croc, Joker, or Catwoman. Of course you also get a flavor of Batman. Bat-Mobile comes with the all-black Tim Burton-type Batman. All the others come with comic book grey & black type Batman...

Batpeople

But all is not golden in Bat-Lego world.

Sure these toys are great to look at... but they're fragile as heck. You can barely touch them without having something fall off or bust apart. So, if you want to put them on a shelf and look awesome, Bat-Lego are for you. But if you want to run around the house and actually play with them... well... it's a bit of a challenge.

Or so I would guess.

I mean, it's not like I go running around the house playing with my Bat-Lego!

Of course not!

I mean, seriously. A grown man running around playing with Lego! How silly would that be!

Bah.

   

VRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMM!

    me and my son went adventuring today and we found a lego store at a mall somewhat near us!!! i didn’t know that those existed outside of legoland (which i love). they had batman legos set up all over the front of the store and star wars all over the back with the duple stuff. killer!!

  2. Chaz says:

    Now I want a Lego Batman set too! Sheesh, if I load up my room with anymore toys everyone really is going to think I’m a kid, but man would those be fun to play with!

  3. Chase says:

    Scary. Very, very scary.

  4. Brent says:

    If only the Lego Bat-Mobile were large enough and impressive enough to make my neighbors jealous…if only.

  5. Eve says:

    Mr. Empress doesn’t know it yet, but he’s getting some nice Batman Legos for his birthday this Sunday…shhhh…

    And there will be playing and vroom-vrooming through the house, and most likely me hogging the toys.

  6. adena says:

    Why am I picturing you running around the house in Superhero PJ’s, making batman fly around the house, fighting evil?

    It’s disturbing, really….

    There’s a Lego store in a little mall in Beaverton. They have the entire Portland skyline in legos, as well as quite a few famous World landmarks. It’s really impressive.

  7. Bec says:

    I got my brother to agree to give up his lego… well, it was mine first before the one who gave birth to me gave it to him in a fit of “it’s a boy’s toy” nonsense.

    I pick it up on May Day! Happiness is a bucket full of lego bricks! I think this warrants a MSN-Space-type double excalmation point!!

    The first thing I think I’ll build is a multi-coloured batcave… after I’ve found the Bat-Mobile, which I now want badly!

  8. Jeff says:

    I suppose if you really wanted to play with them (or not play with them?) you could always glue them together. Or am I missing the point?

  9. timothy says:

    I love Legos. However, I have a very short attention span, and I’m not good at following instructions. Innovations to the plan are always made.

    I’ve never completed the construction of a Lego set.

  10. *cotton says:

    if only they have life size lego bat-mobile… that’ll be WAY cool! *grinz*

  11. Brandon says:

    I can’t wait. We are going to Disneyland this weekend and there is a Lego store in Downtown Disney so I might be able to pick up at least a few of the characters. Maybe in key chain form like my Darth Vader lego key chain. I always put his arms up and yell “Nooooooooo” and then I get really sad. Vader is such a pussy now.

  12. Mooselet says:

    Those are very very cool, I’ve got to admit. I like the all black Batman.

    But Dave… you so need a girlfriend, if for no other reason than to get you out of your footy pajamas and stop you running amok with your Legos. :-)

  13. kilax says:

    You are silly ;)

    I think you should glue them together so they are less fragile ;)

  14. Bre says:

    Oooh – Bat-Mobile looks like it’s very fun to put together!

  15. Rob says:

    I have been banned from playing with The Boys legos. I tend to get carried away with all the fun. So The Pod Lady put a stop to it and told me I’m no longer allowed to play with them.

  16. Kevin says:

    That’s the problem with most Lego sets these days. To get the design of certain things down, they have to use all kinds of really funky pieces. Have you seen the Lego AT-AT and how precariously it is constructed. The different panels on the thing are set at angles and only held down by a two-stud block in many instances. You can’t even pick it up without having it fall to pieces. How’s that fun? And stuff like Batman Legos and Star Wars Legos are meant to be played with, aren’t they? These aren’t the Model Builder or Technics sets.

  17. ms. sizzle says:

    i suppose that means the batman logos are not intended for children under the age of 10 or adults who have childlike exuberance. bummer batman logos!

    :) sizz

  18. Tink says:

    i dont know why but i find the idea of you running around playing with legos darling….its good to let your inner child out….

  19. mikey says:

    Me ex was into both. I need to but him that set. I too am having DSL proplems.(I hope my gravatar shows up this time)

  20. joy says:

    it might be that you’re not yet old enough for big-boy legos, and need to go back to basics with duplo. or play dough.

    duplo has a very nice line in dora the explorer and spiderman, so you can still have a whole lot of fun.

    glad to have found your blog. it make me laugh big time.

  21. Mocha says:

    Please. If you love us at ALL you’ll photograph yourself in those Batman pajamas we’re convinced you own.

    Please.

  22. Michelle says:

    I’ve always wanted that huge castle lego set. And I would soooo have to play with it. And then my husband would torment me endlessly about it.

    Oh, and I would love to see you in spidey or batman jammies playing with your lego’s. Hell, if you post that I will make it my wallpaper.

  23. Wayne Hall says:

    You know, I’m 35. I never played much with legos. I’m still surprised when I purchase them or see them purchased for kids birthdays, because I’m amazed at the staying power.

    That said, I’m totally in love with the Playstation 2 game Lego Star Wars. It’s one of those games I can play with both my 4yr old son and 12yr old daughter. You can pretty much play and re-enact every episode of star wars movies, but all the characters are lego characters.

    And when your characters “die”, their lego pieces blow up all ways left right up and down, and then you get to keep playing. That’s right! you don’t have to start over just because you died or fell apart. Talk about the ultimate young kids game!

    And the little animations they have in between the levels are truly hilarious. Someone had a grand old time designing this game, lemme tell you.

    Oh, and if you play long enough, you can pretty much choose to be any lego star wars character you want, from good Annakin to bad, from Jar Jar to young or old Obi-wan. You can even be the squiggly blue-tentacled Jedi guy with the big gozongo eyes and funny smirk. You can be palpatine, R2D2, a stormtrooper… whatever.

    Lego star wars game really rocks.
