A little over a year removed from releasing a model of the Ash Thorp-designed Batmobile, LEGO is at it again. This time, the Danish toymaker is wheeling out a highly-detailed replica of the Batcycle made for last year’s Batman flick.
Measuring 6.5” high, 13” long, and 4.5” wide, the 641-piece build boasts all the elements of the famous concept artist’s actual design, right down to the clip-on handlebars and quad-pipe exhaust. Above all else, it’s part of LEGO’s beloved Technic lineup, merely adding to its sense of authenticity and quality. Moreover, this allows builders to operate the steering functions and toy with the chain drive that connects to the articulating H4 engine on the rear wheel.
Considering it would look great alongside the aforementioned Batmobile, the forthcoming release is fitted with a convenient kickstand that allows collectors to display the model without wheeling around. And while it doesn’t come equipped with a Batman mini figure, odds are you have one lying around if you’re considering buying this. Fans of the recent film and its rugged pair of rides are bound to appreciate this model, serving as yet another impressive showcase of LEGO’s automotive builds and its partnership with DC.
LEGO sets can be pricey nowadays, but this low-profile model of Ash Thorp’s Batcycle will be available for $50 beginning March 1.
