About this deal

Stream It Or Skip It: 'Christmas at the Chalet' on Lifetime, Where Divorcée Teri Hatcher Explores Love, Purpose, and Skiing in Aspen The meticulously detailed scene recreates the Batcave with an array of movable elements, all operable from the model's rear. Play with an array of features including a swiveling chair, a changeable computer screen, a tool store that opens and closes, and an illuminated Batsuit™ vault for that added sense of realism. FIrstly, I think this concept is really quite clever, and makes for a really large, and striking display piece, especially when enclosed. It’s also begging to be lit up with 3rd party LEGO lighting for maximum effect, if you can bathe it in yellow LED lights. Your original comment was making a universal claim - "it is wrong to use this metric" - but I am not. You are trying to tell someone they're wrong for valuing LEGO a certain way; I'm trying to point out that different fans can value sets different ways, and that's totally fine. The value of a set is almost entirely subjective - there's no absolutely right or wrong way to determine it.

Any review of another more typical LEGO Batcave could just as easily have pulled us into a ‘yet another Batcave’ rhetoric that would question the creative direction of a LEGO Batman theme that – not necessarily through any fault of the LEGO Group – has been light on pretty much anything this past few years. Instead, we cannot say what’s around the corner with this theme many of us love and thought we knew so well, and from a creative viewpoint, that’s nothing but exciting, and wholly down to what 76252 Batcave – Shadow Box offers as a LEGO experience. — LEGO Batman 76252 Batcave – Shadow Box Base characters — Real Housewives Of Potomac' Star Ashley Darby Isn't Mad That Sonja Morgan Stole Her Owen Wilson Thunder At BravoCon: She Knew "His Fetishes"The clear front panel also serves a practical purpose by protecting your Batcave set from dust and potential damage. It keeps your collection in pristine condition, ensuring that it remains a cherished centerpiece for years to come. Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Superpowered: The DC Story’ On Max, A Docuseries About The History And Impact Of The Home Of Superman And Batman Given the dark environment of the Batcave, the shadow box format seems appropriate and this model certainly possesses a visual presence. The whole structure measures 51cm across, but is only 15cm deep, so is shallower than I expected. However, this is arguably beneficial, as the Batcave would fit comfortably on a shelf, rather than occupying a huge footprint and requiring a table.

If they haven't that’s a very illegal build that stresses the parts way too much. In 40448 : Vintage Car the same technique was removed from the original fan design https://ideas.lego.com/s/ca:5be7f2a0e87b46c3825751e725e60d9f for this reason. " Stop telling other people how they should choose to value and enjoy LEGO sets. It is irrelevant in modern LEGO. Thank you." I know the Batmobile 'leaps' but a ramp over there would be nice to have it exit the garage and roll down. It’s very easy to just focus on what is unusual about LEGO Batman 76252 Batcave – Shadow Box and criticise it almost solely for being so different, yet in spite of having some reservations about the validity and cohesiveness of this one-of-a-kind concept, there are few sets of recent times that we have been so eager and interested to build. Whether you buy into what this LEGO set is trying to achieve or not, there’s not another one like it, past, present or perhaps even future.

You can remove and replace the set within the case with ease, making it convenient to update your display or even to enjoy playtime with the Batcave whenever you desire.

Release what we can most immediately predict they’ll release? Produce LEGO sets following clear, immovable guidelines? Arguably not. The LEGO Batman team has puzzled together something completely new and unique in imagining 76252 Batcave – Shadow Box, and in doing so challenges us as its fanbase to, yet again, reconsider what it is to build with LEGO. Instead of offering us something we expect, we have the chance to build something completely different that while still fulfilling a lot of what we need from such a LEGO Batman set creatively asks us to look at an 11-year-old theme with new eyes and new ideas.

However, the furnished half of the Batcave is even more eye-catching and looks stunning. I like the balance between muted colours and splashes of light bluish grey or trans-yellow, recreating the atmosphere of the Batcave presented in Tim Burton's Batman films. The shallow design has entailed certain compromises though, where the layout is concerned.

But while the D2C market has given us some excellent sets, I also agree the volume is getting absurd now since the display space to fit every modular building, every Disney castle, every Ideas set, every UCS Star Wars set, all the big D2C Superhero sets, random Football/Soccer stadiums, etc... is getting to be comically huge. A LEGO fan would need to have a massive space to store and display every single one. I can't decide if LEGO is efforting to feed OR eradicate our FOMO with the continuing release of such large AFOL-centric sets. I find myself both extending my LEGO budget beyond reason at the same time telling myself that it's okay to just let some of these go."

I have spent a long time in school working on my degree and feel like I get to watch those sets just pass by year after year, only getting the small handful my family gifts me for Christmas. But while the D2C market has given us some excellent sets, I also agree the volume is getting absurd now since the display space to fit every modular building, every Disney castle, every Ideas set, every UCS Star Wars set, all the big D2C Superhero sets, random Football/Soccer stadiums, etc... is getting to be comically huge. A LEGO fan would need to have a massive space to store and display every single one. I'd do without the fur-collar on Penguin to have a hat molded with DeVito's striking scraggly hair. It’s still a great Batcave LEGO set and it very much feels in keeping with the tone of the Tim Burton Batman films, and offers that same wow factor any such LEGO Batman set with this sort of piece count can. Yet it also still feels creatively compromised – and at least initially, confused – all so as to allow for this other, more meta inclusion in the build of the large Bat-symbol.

But overall, it's still a wonderful unique set. Excellent display. Looks like great fun to build too.
