LEGO officially unveils its classic ‘Batman’ TV series Batcave set

Although images leaked last week, LEGO apparently wanted to hold off until today — the 50th anniversary of the premiere of the 1966 Batman series — to make it official: The LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman: Classic TV Series – Batcave will arrive in stores in March.

Along with the announcement arrives the first official images of the elaborate 2,500-piece set, which includes not just the Batmobile, Batcycle and Batcopter, but also a whopping nine minifigures.

Now you can see for yourself the full scale of the Batcave, with its Bat Lab, helipad, garage and Batpoles, which of course are hidden behind the grandfather clock bookcase in Bruce Wayne’s study above, in stately Wayne Manor.

As we previously mentioned, the playset boasts minifigs of Batman, Robin, Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Alfred Pennyworth, Catwoman, The Riddler, The Penguin and The Joker (with Cesar Romero mustache, naturally). What we didn’t mention — because we didn’t know — is the price: $270.

So start saving, Bat-fans.

The Batcave entrance is hidden behind the bookcase in the 1966 series, not the clock.

“…Batpoles, which of course are hidden behind the grandfather clock in Bruce Wayne’s study above…”

You are dead to me, Kevin.

Where’s Aunt Harriet for Bruce and Dick to lie about fishing to

The fact this Joker still has his mustache just like Romero is the best part

Yes! This mustached painted white is perfect!

Wow…. the price is a bit steep. I know a former Lego employee (Not some dude in a store) when he was there…. he told me how the pieces cost them nothing to make and Lego deliberately mark them up so high to keep up this image of a high-end premium toy. so it’s false market inflation.

used to be you could put a decimal point in the number of pieces and get the price of the kit :)

This is pretty much the perfect tie-in the the 1966 Batman movie … lacking only the Batboat, a can of shark repellent and a round “bomb” that Batman can’t get rid of. And it’s obviously the Julie Newmar Catwoman (Lee Merriweather didn’t wear the medallion).

Perhaps next we’ll get a polybag of Batgirl and her motorbike, or a Batboat set to include Aunt Harriet, or Police HQ with Gordon and O’Hara.. (actually just add Batgirl and it’s gold)

I darn want this.
By the way, mustaches or not, this is way the creepiest Joker minifigure I’ve ever seen!

The one that gets me is Alfred. That’s the spitting image of Alan Napier, so much so that I wonder if they licensed his likeness.
