That’s a long list, but there are a few that we are particularly excited about.

As you may have guessed from our header image the set we’re most looking forward to here is the Batcycle. This is the bike that appears briefly in 2022’s The Batman. The discussion of Batman has moved back to Michael Keaton as his version of the character will return in The Flash later this year, but we’re a sucker for anything in all black.

For those who prefer their bat vehicles to be squarely on four wheels, LEGO released two versions of the Pattinson Batmobile in the form of sets 42127 and 76181.

We’re also tempted to buy the new WALL•E set which is a double pack that also includes EVE. These come from LEGO’s BrickHeadz theme which is basically an attempt from LEGO to make buildable Funko Pops. The blocky art style works for WALL•E and the set is priced rather well, so we expect this one to sell well.

Where’s BTS and Rivendell?

Both LEGO fans and those who only have a passing interest in the toys will look at the 1st March releases and notice two rather large exclusions: the sets for both BTS and Lord of the Rings.

Both of these franchises are beloved the world over and their sets are greatly anticipated. While LEGO has created sets for The Lord of the Rings (and The Hobbit) in the past, BTS will be new ground for the company.

Here in South Africa these sets will be released a bit later this month:

  • 21339 | LEGO Ideas BTS Dynamite | R1 699 | Shipping in mid March,
  • 10316: The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell | R 7 999 | Shipping on 5th March.

Those a bit shocked by the price of Rivendell can see our dedicated story here which shows off everything the set has to offer with its 6 167 pieces and 15 minifigures.
