What It Is
Help Batman deflate The Joker's plans with the LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Balloon Escape. This 124-piece construction set, model number 70900, lets kids build a face-off between Batman and The Joker at the Gotham City Energy Facility, based on the scene from The LEGO Batman Movie. The set comes with two minifigures of Batman and The Joker, and both figures have two faces. Just turn their heads around to switch up their facial expressions. The Joker wears a detachable balloon backpack with five balloons and two flame elements. Batman wears a molded belt (something new for the Batman minifigure) and comes with a grappling gun accessory with attached string. There is also a buildable power plant with a silo that has an explode function. Just press down on the yellow tab to make the silo break apart. The power plant also has pipes, a computer, a pressure meter, and bomb elements.
Is It Fun?
Fans of the new LEGO Batman Movie will enjoy building a scene straight from the movie and recreating the scene or playing with Batman and The Joker in a whole new way. Kids will like the easy feature of the silo breaking open, which gives the set a little bit of action, while older LEGO Batman fans will like the new look of the Batman minifigure with its molded belt. While the set is fun on its own, it is small and would make a nice addition to other LEGO Batman Movie sets, sold separately. Much like the construction sets for The LEGO Movie, all of the LEGO Batman Movie construction sets do a good job of helping fans recreate favorite parts of the movie.
Who It’s For
The LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Balloon Escape construction set is for ages 6–12. This small set will be fun for fans of the new LEGO Batman Movie who will enjoy building out a scene from the movie and then recreating that scene or making up an all-new storyline between Batman and The Joker.
What To Be Aware Of
It took TTPM's Master Builder 15 minutes to assemble this set, and the instructions were easy to follow.
Additional LEGO Batman Movie sets are also available and sold separately.
