If you thought the LEGO Batmobile set was the end game, wait until lay eyes on the Batman Batcycle LEGO set. LEGO Group has announced the arrival of four new Technic sets targeted towards older builders in the first quarter of 2023.
While we zoom in our critical lens on the 42155 Batman Batcycle set, the new arrivals include the 42152 Fire Plane, 2153 NASCAR Next Gen Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and 42154 2022 Ford GT. Rumor has it that an even bigger version will be coming later this year, most probably in time for the holiday season.

This intricate LEGO Batcycle set is based on the badass ride seen in Matt Reeves’ 2022 The Batman movie. Diehard fans (of both LEGO bricks and Batman) will be able to lay their hands on the creative build this March 2023, months after the release of the official 42127 The Batman – Batmobile set which arrived at the start of 2022.
Unlike the previous LEGO DC offerings, this one is not confirmed yet to come packaged with a plethora of Minifigure-scale models. Having a cool Minifigure accompany this crime-fighting machine would be the perfect icing on the cake though.
The 641-piece set is an authentic scale model to hearken back nostalgic memories of the popular franchise. When fully assembled, the Batman Batcycle measures over 6.5 inches in height, is 13 inches long and is 4.5 inches wide. Automotive fanatics will appreciate the raw detail of the steering, suspension and chain drive connecting the articulating H4 engine to the rear wheel. The collectible can be shown off on the living room shelf thanks to the sturdy kickstand.
Just like every other LEGO Technic buildable model, this two-wheeled toy for boys satiates the lust for engineering. The realistic movement and mechanisms will be utterly satisfying to explore. For that, eager buyers will have to wait till March 1, 2023, to get going with building one for their desks at just $50.
