LEGO and Warner Bros. Discovery have unveiled a brand new set to celebrate Batman's 85th anniversary this year.

The newly revealed LEGO DC Batman Gotham City Skyline set is a faithful recreation of Gotham City as it appears in Batman: The Animated Series. The 4,210-piece set — which measures 17" x  30" x 3" — meticulously recreates iconic locations from the beloved animated series, including Gotham City Court, Arkham Asylum, the classic Batwing and Bat Signal. 

Like other sets of this magnitude, it's also chock full of fun Easter eggs and references to the show, as well as hidden details that can be discovered in certain parts of the set that open up and allow you to peek inside.

In addition to recreating the skyline, the set also comes with minifigures of Batman, Catwoman, The Joker, and Harley Quinn. Each Minifigure appears as they did in the animated series and comes with their own unique accessory: Batman, a batarang; Catwoman, a diamond and a whip; Joker, some TNT; and Harley Quinn, a gun. All four characters can be displayed on a perch between two gargoyles.

As far as LEGO Batman sets are concerned, this is undoubtedly one of the best. Not only is it based on one of the most beloved adaptations of the Caped Crusader, but it's full of intricate detail.

It does come with a bit of a hefty price tag though. Set to arrive in April, the LEGO DC Batman Gotham City Skyline costs $299.99, which considering the price of LEGOs these days feels pretty reasonable — especially for a set of this magnitude.

There doesn't appear to be any pre-order date, but the set will be available for LEGO Insiders first starting April 1, 2024. For everyone else, it will go on sale a few days later on April 4, 2024. 

Even to this day, Batman: The Animated Series is considered to be one of the greatest animated shows ever made. Debuting in 1992 on Fox Kids, the series was praised for its mature tone, writing, visual aesthetic, and voice acting. The series starred the late Kevin Conroy as the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Voicing one of his most iconic foes was none other than Mark Hamill who, to this day, is considered to be one best Joker actors. The series is also notable for introducing Joker's assistant, Harley Quinn, who has since become a mainstream character.

@dragon316 - No offense, but your comment sounds like a logical test.

I just wonder how many of those Legos my Great Grand Nephew or Gusto could get in his nose at the same time.

@DocSpock - You're assuming Gusto only sticks them up his nose?

@Skestra -

Well sh!t... I wondered where the other missing 3000 legos went...

For $300, would've preferred a Batcave just like the 1966 one. Or maybe GCPD with a lot more figures.

@Nightwing1015 - Arkham Asylum.

I just want the minifigures.

Looks like New York. I have always contended that Gotham City should be a DC universe representation of New York City...Metropolis should be Chicago (not across the freaking bay from Gotham) and Gateway City should be The representation of Los Angeles.

@Forthas - always thought Metropolis was new York by day, and Gotham New York by night. And I like them being across a bay (like the Delaware Bay) from each other because of that.

@bkmeijer1 - That makes no logical sense. Then why would Superman not be active in Gotham if it were that close. When you say Metropolis is New York by day....you mean they are the same city.

It makes more sense for New York to Be Gotham because a lot of its architecture is older than Chicago...one of New Yorks nicknames is literally Gotham...and it's proximity to Bludhaven which I always saw as Newark makes it geographically appropriate appropriate. Metropolis should be in Chicago because it is closer to Kansas and is in the Midwest. Chicago is the defacto capital of the Midwest which is a signature aspect of Superman having Midwestern values. It would make sense that if he grew up in Kansas he would have ◀️ likely visited what to him would have been the closest "Big City'.

@Forthas - those are some good point. Can't argue with that.

As to why Superman wouldn't show up in Gotham, I do raise you: why doesn't he show up in any other city? Same with the Flash. They're so fast, no distance should matter to them.
Forthas
Forthas - 3/9/2024, 7:26 AM
@bkmeijer1 - I would say that the different Superheroes can't be everywhere so they work within a specific geographic area and trust that other Super heroes are addressing the dangers and crimes in their area. I would add that Superman would address global threats AND local crime in that order while Batman would address local crime and global threats in the opposite order.

bkmeijer1 - 3/9/2024, 7:57 AM
@Forthas - again, some good points. And with superheroes having side kicks, I guess they can deal with the local issues while the main heroes are off doing JL business

That's pretty cool, and it's not even that expensive for the number of pieces. 300 bucks for over 4000 pieces is a good deal, considering other sets roughly go for 10 cent per piece.

I wish modern cities were more Art Deco.

I just wish if they were going to go for that scale and price that they bothered with a few more minifigures.

Off-topic, does anyone want to see the custom Spider-Man minifig collection I'd been working on?
