The Joker Balloon Escape – Set 70900

 

I have yet to see the Lego Batman Movie. 🙁 Yes, it has finally been released in Japan, but of course, it’s not playing in my city, and while it’s playing in the nearest city, it’s dubbed in Japanese only (as it’s often the case for kids movies – or at least what Japanese distributors assume is a kids movie). So, just like the Lego Movie, I guess I’ll have to wait for the Blu-Ray release. Oh well…

In the meantime, I couldn’t resist, I got the Joker Balloon Escape set, and while it’s very small and simple, it’s utterly ridiculously awesome!

 

 

Truth is, I’m not even a big Batman fan (I grew up reading Marvel Comics, not DC Comics), but this Joker figure, with this nonsensical and hilarious balloon-jetpack thing may have become one of my new favorite minifigures. And the bomb too is so cartoonish, I love it. My only negative thing about this set is the tank behind the bomb that falls apart too easily. But as I don’t really care for the play features, nothing that’s not easily fixable.

 

 

I don’t know if I’m gonna get more sets from the movie (it’ll depend on whether I like it), but I may get the Catwoman Catcycle Chase for the minifigures, and the Penguin Arctic Roller seems pretty awesome. We’ll see…
