I keep forgettin’ we’re not in love anymore to post about this crazy deal on Lego.com. Right now, you can get that big Arkham Asylum set at 50% off for $40 bones!

Arkham Asylum on Lego.com

I just ordered mine, so I can’t tell you how cool it is yet. What I do know is that the set comes with Batman in the movie outfit and some Bat-glider, Nightwing with a black motorcycle and trans-blue escrima sticks, the Riddler, the Scarcrow (there’s 2/13ths of your Legion of Doom right there), Poison Ivy (thankfully in her classic look and not her all-green look) and two prison guards that will probably be killed at the start of all your adventures. I used the El Cheapo shipping option (when don’t I?) so it’ll be a while before I get it. When I do, I’ll post pics. But even if you’re just thinking kinda/sorta/maybe on getting into the Lego Batman groove, just go get that now while it’s still there or you’ll be kicking yourself in the butt when it’s gone. Even though Riddler and Scarecrow will appear in new separate sets in a month or two, this is the only place I’ve seen Nightwing and Poison Ivy.

  1. I’m so happy you posted this. I never thought I would find that for such a good price and that is the one set I wanted the most. Of course Nightwing is one of the reason I wanted this and I hated that he wasn’t in any other sets when they were first being sold since they cost so much more. I’m defiantly going to buy this while is cheap.

  2. It irks me that a lot of the most wanted characters (especially Robin) are only in these expensive sets. I want them, but I don’t have the spare cash or even room for that big Wayne Manor set. Arkham looks modular enough to store easily, so that’s no big deal.

    The minifigures are expensive on BrickLink since the sellers pay store price for the sets and profit only comes from the figs. Until the sale, Poison Ivy used to sell for over $11!
