@KALofKRYPTON Thanks; my only problem is that I don't have anywhere to put him (I have two LEGO DC displays, one of Batman '66 and one of Justice League, and he isn't canon with either of them)! He's keeping my Totaku company for now. Also thanks for the comic trivia! I may be asking you about little bits from the game from time-to-time.

@WanderingBullet Soul Calibur characters always look great. Who (or what) is the statue of?

@WanderingBullet Thanks; popped the name into Google and she does look pretty impressive!

EDIT: And you provided a link, cheers!

@RogerRoger Hmmm... You could stick him with some Rebirth (post New 52) Justice Leaguers, that would fit 😊

From what I can tell the game is based largely off of the last (and oft repeated) Crime Syndicate arc from New 52.

@KALofKRYPTON ...so, not the Knightcrawler and the Flying Fox from the film, then?

I'll play it, then look up the lore. Shouldn't take too long to clear the story, although I'll wanna enjoy it because it's got one of the best voice casts ever assembled.

@mookysam Thanks! I guess with the game out now, I can justify showing off my bat-LEGO displays (and save the Star Wars stuff for when they inevitably produce another game).

Had a few little bits over the years, but the two major displays I maintain are centred around big sets from Batman '66 (which was heavily featured in the main console versions of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham) and Justice League. That's where the additional minifigures in those previous photographs came from.

Please forgive the brightness of the photographs, by the way; almost all of my furniture and walls are white, and all my main lights are spotlights.

Anyway, here's a close-up shot of the Batman '66 Batmobile...

...and the Batcave to which it belongs.

The detail in this set is incredible. It was awesome to put together (and is a pain to dust).

It's now on my coffee table, right next to me whilst I game. Thanks to a general lack of space, I did sneak in a set from Batman V Superman in the small space behind it, showing some goons stealing Kryptonite and Batfleck driving in to try and stop them...

When I finally got around to seeing Justice League, I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would, and subsequently managed to grab all three of the LEGO sets from the film (they were going real cheap by the time the Blu-Ray came out). It was the only way to "unite the league" in LEGO form, because LEGO are always sneaky about minifigure distribution to maximise revenue!

Totally worth it, though...

...and meant I could compare the Batfleck Batmobiles, too.

The only space I had left for anything was on a second coffee table that was mostly there to hold my router and wireless PS3 and PS4 controllers. As you can see, they're now guests on a table full of LEGO, rather than the other way around (always gotta prioritise the important things).

Bonus point for noticing the marble Drax Corporation coaster from Moonraker!

@RogerRoger Nice! I particularly like those Batman '66 ones. Cool coaster too.

@WanderingBullet Holy empty wallet, Batman!

Thanks for posting the video, I do love a good stare at things I totally shouldn't buy.

I do this a lot - watching youtube videos of statues that cost hundreds or thousands of dollars.

I especially like the one where Batman's standing and wielding two katanas.

@WanderingBullet My problem is that I have significantly less self-restraint than most.

I don't think these designs are specifically from Batman Ninja, though; they're either inspired by it, or it's just a happy coincidence. His armour is a little different in the film.

Always up for seeing different cultural takes on the Batman mythology regardless!

@WanderingBullet Yep, that's the one I've got on order.

My wallet thanks you.

@RogerRoger Damn. Just make sure you bring it over to my place during the weekends.haha

@WanderingBullet They don't make enough bubble wrap and cotton wool to make that an activity I'd feel safe and comfortable doing... but if they ever do, you're on.
