|The LEGO Movie (2014)|
|The LEGO Batman Movie (2017)|
Meet the "cast" of this new LEGO movie:
|And Batman's arch-nemesis... NOT! (see trailer)|
LEGO seems to have gone all-out releasing at least 13 building sets for this movie! Batman himself gets a playset of the Batcave (70909, RRP RM529.90) and a new Batmobile (70905, RRP RM299.90) plus what looks like a new flying machine called the Bat-Scuttler which looks like a mecha bat (70908, RRP 399.90).
|Will this Batmobile be the next fan favourite?|
|Special launch event at Toys R Us for this exclusive LEGO Batman set.|
|Arkham Asylum (70912) contains lots of cute mini-figs.|
|Huge LEGO display of the Batman sets during the Toys R Us launch event.|
|The Bat-Scuttler (70908) looks pretty mean!|
|Penguin's ride is pretty classy: the Artic Roller (70911, RM179.90)|
|"Tikam" away! Gotta catch 'em all!|
Check online for more details and prices at the official LEGO Stores or Toys R Us Malaysia.
Whilst the Outpost M.R.T. does not endorse any particular retailer, if you are going to buy these toys anyway then consider doing so at the official LEGO Batman Movie Event now on at Mid Valley Megamall, East Atrium.
Buying directly at this event will entitle to a number of LEGO freebies depending on the amount spent. Firstly any purchase of of a LEGO Batman set will receive a sorta black flying vehicle inspired by the Dark Knight. We kinda think it looks like a MyVi with wings! However an assembly guide is not included with the bricks as purchasers seem to be encouraged to build them on-the-spot referring to laminated instructions (not to be removed).
|This mini-build LEGO some free with any LEGO Batman set purchase.|
Purchases over RM150 then receive an exclusive polybag (30523) of The Joker Battle Training. In addition, purchases over RM200 of any LEGO product receives a Limited Edition Year of the Rooster building set (40234). Considering the price of LEGO nowadays, it doesn't take more than 1 or 2 sets to exceed the threshold to receive all 3 of these goodies FREE! Toys R Us members will also collect points for their purchases.

For those serious LEGO collectors, different giveaways seem to be offered by other retailers, such as this Phantom Zone polybag (30522) from Box of Bricks:
Anyway if LEGO is too pricey for the wallet, try winning some instead from these online contests by our local cinemas. Firstly GSC Cinemas has a fairly straightforward contest for their online members offering polybagged mini-figs, kids tshirts and more:
There will also be a "pop-up" store at GSC Pavilion KL this weekend from 9 February near the cinema.
Both MMcineplexes and Premium-X Cinema is offering similar merchandise up for grabs on their respective social media channels:
Over at MBO Cinemas, they are offering a LEGO Batman edition card for their All-Star membership (free). They are also encouraging cosplay of LEGO Batman movie characters and giving away building sets for submissions posted to Instagram. Good luck with that since we have hardly seen any LEGO cosplay locally!
