Massive New Lego Arkham Asylum Set Announced
There’ve been a number of sprawling Batman Lego sets, but the latest to be unveiled at BrickCon 2012 in Seattle over the weekend may be the most impressive yet. In January Batman fans will be able to pick up Lego DC Universe Super Heroes set #10937, Arkham Asylum. At 1,351 pieces, the $160 set is the largest superhero-themed offering Lego has released, topping both the first generation Batcave and Arkham Asylum sets from 2006 by several hundred pieces. Like the newest Batcave set, this new Arkham Asylum seems to draw from multiple incarnations of Batman lore. The asylum’s design is evocative of its appearance in the Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game, with Batman sporting something approaching his suit from the ’89 live action film and Robin rocking his Batman: Arkham City costume. You can check out a much larger image of the set after the jump for a closer look at the upcoming Lego Arkham Asylum set’s features.
