There’ve been a number of sprawling Batman Lego sets, but the latest to be unveiled at BrickCon 2012 in Seattle over the weekend may be the most impressive yet. In January Batman fans will be able to pick up Lego DC Universe Super Heroes set #10937, Arkham Asylum. At 1,351 pieces, the $160 set is the largest superhero-themed offering Lego has released, topping both the and sets from 2006 by several hundred pieces. Like the , this new Arkham Asylum seems to draw from multiple incarnations of Batman lore. The asylum’s design is evocative of its appearance in the Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game, with Batman sporting something approaching his suit from the ’89 live action film and Robin rocking his Batman: Arkham City costume. You can check out a much larger image of the set after the jump for a closer look at the upcoming Lego Arkham Asylum set’s features.
Some of the Lego Batman sets are among our favorites. We wanted toshow you some of the best sets for Lego Batman and tell you why we havehad so much fun with them.
ArkhamAsylum is the last of the Lego Batman sets that we will feature. I lovethe whole concept of Arkham Asylum as it is a place for the criminallyinsane. The majority of Batman's foes are caught and kept here.
We’ve already had a LEGO The Riddler minifigure released in many LEGO Batman sets over the years, so another Riddler LEGO minifigure is nothing to get all excited about. Luckily, though he’s by far my favorite Batman villain, the Riddler minifigure is actually the item in the 76012 LEGO set that I’m the least interested in!
