In addition to last month's four new LEGO Batman Movie set reveals, LEGO today announced yet another new set coming out on June 1st: 70917 The Ultimate Batmobile! This set will cost $129.99 USD and contains a rotating Bat-Signal with a working light brick, a massive vehicle that splits apart into a Batmobile, Batwing, Bat-Tank, and Batcycle, and eight minifigures (including some that might be pretty surprising)! If you have already seen the movie or don't fear spoilers, you can view a high-resolution picture of the set on Facebook or read more about the set on MarketWatch.

It's...the Batler!

 

...cuz, you know, Bat Butler.

 

Personally, I think it would have been better if they'd included villains who haven't gotten minifigures yet, like Sauron.

Oh, man. I have no real interest in TLBM, and the sets and character designs have been pretty hit-and-miss in my opinion, but this is amazing. The combined vehicle is cool, and the Batmobile is easily spotted sitting up front (if anything, it looks even better), but I wish we could have had another picture to see the other three vehicles. It really says something that the beautifully realized Bat-signal comes off as an afterthought here.

Personally, I think it would have been better if they'd included villains who haven't gotten minifigures yet, like Sauron.

Couldn't agree more. Sauron>Polka-Dot Man; there's really no contest. Still, at least this way if I take the plunge and buy this monstrosity, I can easily sell off the D-lister to recoup some of the cost.
Hopefully, there are one or two summer sets that are still unrevealed, because I would be rather annoyed if Lego passed up another chance to release a second-age Sauron figure, especially since they went out of their way to insert him into a franchise where he doesn't belong.

I'd agree, only that he was Barad-dûr, which, y'know, isn't a minifig. I'd have loved Agent Smith, since that was such a great small gag, or Voldemort because, well, why not?

The Dark Tower would have made an amazing set, although technically a Sauron figure wouldn't even really figure there since he is known to have appeared in the Prologue scenes. Still, it wouldn't be the biggest stretch for Lego's use of creative license-Fifth Brother in Rex's AT-TE anyone? It would be nice if they could have included Sauron, but I suppose maybe they wanted a bit more color to the set.

The issue is more that Sauron doesn't really appear in minifigure form at all in the movie (save for his silhouette briefly appearing as the "iris" of the Eye of Sauron)—it's not quite like your Star Wars example, which merely combined characters from the same show into a set despite not sharing the same scene (a fairly common strategy for distributing figs in order to best cover all the key characters, props, and settings).

 

I am a little less impressed with some of these fig choices (like the preexisting Wicked Witch figure), but I would not be surprised to see a third wave of sets to mop up some of the leftover characters next Winter (like we got for The Lego Movie in 2015).

Huh...figures that even when Sauron gets some love he gets no love; it seems like Lego is just out to deny me what I want.
