Lego Batman Classic TV Batcave Set 76052
Have you seen the new Lego Batman Classic TV Batcave Set 76052. This looks amazing, but in the UK it is £230 at the Lego UK Shop online. This is a true fan purchase and a collectable one at that.
Lego Batman Classic TV Batcave Set 76052 contains 2,526 pieces and comes with 9 minifigures.
The Batcave features a false bookcase, Batpoles, Bat Lab with Batcomputer, plus a Batmobile, Batcopter and the 9 minifigures.
Let’s start with the Batmobile. The level of detail on this is amazing, take a look inside and the red bat phone in the car is perfect. It even has the correct emergency stickers for the Bat-Turn lever. The only downside to the car is that the doors don’t swing open as in the original Batman series they always seemed to open the doors to get in.
The Lego Batcopter is a single seater with the classic bubble type glass around the pilot. The batbike (which was a surprise inclusion for me) also looks great with Robin in the passenger seat and Batman driving it.
The 9 included minifigures are: Batman, Robin, Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Alfred Pennyworth (Butler), The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler and The Penguin (and don’t forget the house cat). Catwoman minifigure is very good with her cat ears poking through her hair.
The Batcave building itself is made up of 3 main sections, the helipad and Batmobile or Batbike parking space, the underground cave, laboratory and Batcomputer area and then finally the Wayne Manor library room with the famous red Batphone and the hidden button in the statue which opens the false wall to expose the Batpoles. This upper part is then attached to the Batpoles which take our caped crusaders down to the Batcave and at the same time get them into costume.
The 3 main parts of the Wayne manor and the Batcave can either be separated or combined together. One nice aspect is that on the other side of the library room and the Batpoles is the outside of Wayne manor with all of it’s windows.
The Batcave 76052 Lego set contains lots and lots of accessories and weapons including The Joker’s TNT, Catwoman’s whip, The Riddler’s TNT and The Penguin’s umbrella. There are also Batman’s 3 Batarangs, rope, grappling hook and handcuffs.
- Batcave measures over 18” (46cm) high, 22” (56cm) wide and 7” (20cm) deep.
- Batmobile measures over 2” (6cm) high, 8” (21cm) long and 2” (7cm) wide.
- Batcopter measures over 2” (7cm) high, 8” (22cm) long and 7” (19cm) wide.
- Batcycle (I call it Batbike) measures over 1” (4cm) high, 3” (8cm) long and 1” (4cm) wide.
Overall this Lego Batcave looks amazing, and is available to buy from the Lego Shop
