What It Is
LEGO DC Universe Superheroes The Bat vs. Bane: Tumbler Chase is a 368-piece set being introduced under The Dark Knight Rises line.

Bane's Tumbler is a free-wheeling vehicle that includes a cockpit where Bane can ride, flick missiles that can rotate up to fire, and lots of great details. The Bat has lots of animated pieces that kids can maneuver as they play as well as flick missiles, propellers, and a working tow rope for capturing Bane's Tumbler to save the day. The set comes with three collectible minifigures: Batman, Bane, and Commissioner Gordon. There is also a full-color comic book to inspire more Batman vs. Bane excitement.

What To Be Aware Of
The instructions are easy to follow, and it took an expert builder about 45 minutes to complete.
The grown-up content of The Dark Knight Rises may be inappropriate for kids, but the action/adventure play is fun and doesn't need the relationship to the movies. That will appeal mostly to older LEGO builders.
