    I went to Stoneridge Mall in Dublin, CA today and the LEGO Store had ALL THE BATMAN SETS!!!

    I SOOO wanted to grab them, but the employees handed out $5 coupons of purchases over $25 that begin in May... So I guess I'll have to wait then...:banghead: 

    But MAN ALIVE they were SOOOOOO FRAGGLE ROCKIN' AWESOME!!!

    I saw pics of these sets at BBTS and they do look pretty fun. Although Batman himself looks a little odd the way the mask is on his face. Joker having the "Bang!" fake gun is a great touch. If only the barrel to that gun were longer, you could have him shoot down the Batwing ala the first Batman movie. :D

    Yeah, I was at the Glendale Galleria the other day during my lunch break and I happened to stop by the store and noticed the new Batman Lego's. The Batwing is aweome. I just don't like the figures. I prefer the Minimates over Lego figures.

    I remember standing in the middle of the LEGO store in the middle of the Mall of America in MN just amazed. It really was a thing of beauty!

    I'll have to keep my eyes open for these Batman sets. I'm fighting hard to not delve into LEGO again though...

    Nice, nice and expensive that is.

    I could never understand why Legos cost so much.

    What kind of sense does that make? Here's a coupon but you have to wait over a month to use it.

    Chances are it is intended to get you to come back and make a second purchase. Supermarkets do the same thing with after your order the cashier hands you a $5 on your next purchase of over $50.

    It is an attempt to provide an incentive for them to return and spend yet more money.

    Picked up the Batwing/Joker Copter and the Batmobile/Two Face Getaway sets this week. Both are awesome. I hope they do more versions of the Batmobile. I'd *love* a Lego Bat-Tumbler. I've seen customs, but the real deal would be sweet.

    I purchased the Batwing today at Walmart on clearance for $30. Didn't make any sense and I didn't ask any questions.

    Picked up the Batmobile and Two-face set today at TRU. Man this thing is so awesome. I put together the Batmobile right away (Took about an hour and a half since I had to fight off my cat at the same time). I just had to share these pics of the finished Batmobile!:rock
