The Lego Batman movie spawned a lot of really good sets, not to mention the really fun movie. The Scuttler is a smallish, insect-inspired vehicle which features some really cool extending legs and a net launcher. We recently named this one of the best Super Hero sets for 2017.
- Build Batman's awesome robotic bat vehicle with extending arms, secret jetpack and a launching net shooter!
- Featured in THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE
- Includes Batman, The Joker, Commissioner Gordon, Barbara Gordon, Dick Grayson and Poison Ivy with buildable vine monster
As of the time of writing this post, the Scuttler was still available in the Lego Shop and below MSRP on Amazon. Lego has this one marked as “Retiring Soon” which will usually fuel sales as fans and collectors alike grab the set while they can.
The Lego Batman Movie is a specific niche within the larger Batman/DC/Super Hero niche. It is difficult to tell how much of a demand there will be for this down the line as there aren’t any history with this specific line to look to. The thing we do know is that Batman is one of the most beloved superheroes in pop culture. The movie was well received by both critics and fans so there is clearly some potential for a bit of a cult following.
