And, of course, every super-secret superhero base needs a revolving wall, because you never know when you might need to change into a snazzy white tuxedo. Catwalks connect all these locations. Visually the multi-screen panel works well, although I do wish that they had used transparent tiles instead to give it more of a high-tech vibe. To the right is a rotating costume change area. The lefttmost area is Batman's suit storage; behind it, a prison for locking up villains. It runs on 6 wheels and despite its cuteness, is armed with missiles and guns. It has a really sleek profile but is hefty enough to look like it can take a beating.

The Bat-Pack Batsuit is my favourite out of the novelty Batsuits, purely because of its over-the-top design. Another thing I quite liked about the Batcave is the walkway that runs from one end of the Batcave to the other. One of the play features within the central column is the platform that transports Batman up to his computer — something that they managed to capture quite well from the movies as Batman makes his grand entrance. The design is a tried and true format, especially for playset-type Batcaves where there are several segments connected to a main hub, as opposed to carefully re-creating a single portion of the Batcave in great detail. The jagged slopes and exposed bricks gives off a really unfinished look. The center computer console comes with a rotating control chair with tons of complicated looking controls just waiting for a cup of coffee to be spilled on them and multiple computer screens.

If I were a kid, I think I would be thrilled with the set, which contains heaps of play features that are actually fun. Bags three and four contain the base structure of the Batcave, while bags five and six add the prison and computer console respectively. In the previous set, he was rather grumpy. The vehicles kind of steal the show. The rotating wardrobe mechanism works remarkably well when you twist the technic gear which spins the carousel around in a very satisfying manner.

Of course, the robotic-backpacks also help give these henchmen an air of evil. First up, we take a look at the Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth minifigures, which in my honest opinion are the strongest draws in the set. Best of all, the set comes with 9 great minifigs, several of which are exclusive to this set. The Bat-Pack Batsuit is my favorite costume in this set because it is so flashy. Overall, with a total of 1,047 pieces, Batcave Break-in is pretty good value. I love the pearl gold cowl, shimmering gold cape and gold tux, complete with a bowtie in the shape of a Bat.

These penguins are equipped with pretty heavy equipment stuck to the singular stud on their backs, which contain tools to facilitate the Batcave Break-In. After not liking the set initially, the juvenile nature of the set did eventually grow on me, especially when I realised that it was actually a pretty fun package and that the set really benefits from populating it with minifigures and characters from the movie, which is were it truly comes alive. And that I need to rewatch the old Batman movies again! The middle section, which features the control centre and multi-panel display occupies your focus, but the design of the middle pillar is a little plain and the Bat-screens look really striking, yet the overall shape can be improved. The minifigure department is by far the strongest part of Batcave Break-In. On his lapel, Bruce is also rocking a red boutonniere. The prison cell features a removable wall for hench-penguin instigated prison breaks.

Attack with the Batboat's spring-loaded missiles and stud shooters and steer clear of the Duckmobile's weapons. The Duckmobile is utterly adorable and will most likely cop a permanent spot in my display just because of how cute it looks. The Batcave also has a rotating wardrobe with alternative Scu-Batsuit, Raging Batsuit or the Bat-Pack Batsuit minifigure bodies for Batman. But now, low and behold, the Penguin is happy! Bruce is also sporting a fresh new hairpiece, which has plenty of texture and a tousled, careless look. I really liked the clever use of a variety of difference slopes and plates to give it a very sharp and angular look. The transformation chamber functionality does work as intended, you place Bruce Wayne in the spinning pedestal, and Batman on the other side, twist the knob to complete the transformation.

Oh and sorry for the radio silence! The black bowtie might be my favorite new piece. My favorite thing about this bat-persona is that Batman put on a gray batsuit, then slipped on a pair of yellow boxing shorts overtop. Hey, at least we got one printed tile. Bruce Wayne has an alternate face with a brilliant winking expression and just a bit of back printing. The rotating wardrobe carousel is easily the best part of the new Batcave. Bag two contains Batman and the second vehicle in the set: the Batboat.

The tricky part is you actually get four Batsuits, all of which need to be racked when Batman is masquerading as Bruce Wayne or eating lobster. The walkways also make for a great place to pose minifigures, which helps the Batcave avoid looking like a static model. The Batcave was a lot larger and occupied a much bigger footprint than I had initially expected. Learn more about cookies in our and. Now that stuff has gone back to normal at home and at work, I should hopefully pick up the slack and get back some much needed momentum when it comes to reviews. Bruce Wayne and Alfred also sport terrific designs that almost make this set a must-buy. Overall, this set has a lot going for it.

Cookies also allow us to provide you with a personalized experience. I particularly like the ingeniously designed white and red missiles located on the sides of the Duckmobile. The sleek lines, sharp profile and smooth studless appearance makes this unassuming Batvehicles one of my favourite yet. Bruce Wayne is at his billionaire playboy best with a stylish white tuxedo, complete with some really nice details such as black stitching across the pockets, lapel which give it a really nice sense of contrast. Last but not least is the trio of unique Batsuits — the Scu-Batsuit, Bat-Pack Batsuit, and the Raging Batsuit. Modules like the rotating wardrobe work incredibly well, but are contradicted by the shoddy design on the transformation chamber.

That said, the set is not without flaws and the design is a little disjointed at times. The first bag contains the Penguin, his hench-penguins, and everything you need to build the adorable Duckmobile. Plus, I agree that the Duckmobile and hench penguins are adorable! Lastly in the module on the right, we have a crudely constructed Batman transformation chamber. I recently built the second largest set in the wave so far , 70909 Batcave Break-In, because hey, Batman needs a crib and it looked like a particularly meaty and satisfying set to put together. I like the use of the bald head accessory which gives Alfred a bit of personality. That two-sided pleather-like cape is divine and the sparkly jacket is fabulous. Find the intruders on the Batcomputer screens in the rotating control center.
