Pow! First look at Lego Batcave based on '60s Batman TV show

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the camp classic, this new Lego Batcave lets you re-create the Dynamic Duo's finest moments.

Lego Wayne Manor has a sliding false bookcase that reveals the Batpoles.


Holy plastic bricks, Batman! To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic '60s Batman TV series, Lego launched a new set Tuesday: the Classic Batman TV Series Batcave.

Hitting shelves on March 1, this elaborate Lego set includes over 2,500 pieces so fans can build the classic Batcave hideout. Starring Adam West and Burt Ward, the series premiered January 12, 1966.

No detail has been spared in this set, which consists of the Batlab with the Batcomputer, various gadgets, a lie detector machine, Bat-gadgets and test tubes with translucent elements.

This special Lego model also has a Wayne Manor section with an exterior wall for Batman and Robin to climb up, just like in the show. Bruce Wayne's study features the iconic Batphone and a faux bookcase that slides open to reveal the secret entrance to the Batcave.

There are even poles for Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson to slide down and transform into their crime-fighting alter egos.

The set comes with a generous nine minifigures too: Batman and Robin, Bruce and Dick, butler Alfred and villains Catwoman, the Riddler, the Joker and the Penguin.

Of course, the Batcave set also houses the Caped Crusader's prized vehicles. There's the Batcopter -- with flick missiles and a helipad to land on -- the Batcycle, and of course, the Batmobile, which has stud shooters.

Weapons include the Joker's and the Riddler's TNT, Catwoman's whip and Penguin's umbrella. Batman has his Batarangs, rope, grappling hook and handcuffs. There's even a cat for Catwoman.

This Lego set retails for $270 (about £230 or AU$385). Pricing varies by country as opposed to the currency exchange rate, so please visit Lego's official site for regional pricing. It's still a steal compared to how much a real Batcave would cost: around $682 million. (That's a cool £460 million or AU$875 million.)
