LEGO DC Super Heroes Review: The Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape #6857

with 4 comments

The Joker has to be some kind of real estate genius. How else does he constantly end up in abandoned theme parks? Does he just buy them up or is he always squatting? More importantly, why does Gotham have so many abandoned theme parks?

If you are only going to get one LEGO DC Super Heroes set, this is the one to get. If you’re only going to get two, get this one and the Superman set. This is a set with three villains, two heroes, a vehicle and a massive build jammed packed with traps for the Dark Knight.

The Riddler, the Joker and his sidekick Harley Quinn are holding Robin hostage at their evil funhouse! As our hero Batman jumps off his cool Batcycle, can he avoid the trap door, big hammer and moving floor and rescue his crime-fighting partner? Read the rest of this entry »

LEGO DC Super Heros Review: Batwing Battle Over Gotham City #6863

without comments

LEGO seems to have realized just how powerful nostalgia is as a buying force. With the success of their Star Wars line, it doesn’t really surprise me that LEGO released a Batman set based on the 1989 film but it really works.

DC Universe Action League Review: Batman & Joker

with one comment

Not every Action League set is about the Rainbow Corps even if it seems like it. The other part is full of classic pairings and I don’t think it’s possible to get a pairing more classic than Batman and the Joker – even if a very similar pack was already released. Read the rest of this entry »

Batman the Brave and the Bold Action League Review – Batman & the Joker

without comments

Three waves in and Mattel finally decided to pair Batman up with his greatest enemy: the Joker! Only I never expected them to literally pair the two of them up. But then again, the Joker in his twisted mind would be almost as upset as Batman if someone started impersonating the Dark Knight.
