Lego is releasing a new Batmobile Technic set based on the personal vehicle that the caped crusader will be driving in the upcoming film The Batman starring Robert Pattinson. The film was expected to release this year but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but this Lego set is a good outlet for fans waiting for its eventual release.

Batman and his Batmobile, of course, are legendary superheroes, and the iconic car has been present in every iteration of Batman. Every Batmobile has features that make it unique and stand out from the previous versions. This new and presumably improved version has yet to be seen, so consider this Lego version a teaser. It shows some resemblance to a Chevrolet Camaro or Dodge Challenger from the late 1960s or early 1970s era.

The set comes with 1360 individual pieces, so it's not going to be quick or easy to build. The kit includes are two light bricks: the yellow light will illuminate the grille, while the red light will glow over the transparent rear engine. The set also includes front-wheel steering, a rear differential, and a hood and two doors that open and close. To top it all off, there is a spinning flame on the back of the car imitating the fire that backfires from the exhaust in the films.

An earlier, more elaborate Batmobile Lego set was released in 2019, based on the 1989 Batmobile. That set contained 3306 pieces and took a long time to build. The new Batmobile set has almost 2000 fewer pieces but will still take a lot of time to construct. The previous version had a price of $249.99 while this one only costs $99.99—a bargain in Lego terms for a set this big.

The new set is available for preorder and will begin shipping on November 1.
