Posted ImageLast night at BrickCon in Seattle the latest Direct to Consumer set was announced. Expanding the DC Super Heroes line, 10937 Arkham Asylum is a great-looking playset with a lot of awesome minifigs. They definitely didn't skimp on the detail.

Ah good old Arkham Asylum. The prison made out of glue and sticky tape :P Nah just kidding the detail really does look amazing, I am continuingly always surprised each year how much LEGO can so much. Those gargoyles for example or whatever they are, the head using a frog piece! Whilst I'm probably not going to get this set (Marvel for the win!) I still must say this looks like a really great set :biggrin:

This set has a Mr. Freeze icy tower room, yet no Mr. Freeze minifig? :uhuh:But still, this looks like a great set. I love the look of all the minifigs, and the asylum itself looks amazing too. I might get it if I ever got back into getting Lego sets.

Great set, I have to say. I've not always been a follower of Batman series, but this sets looks amazing. Lots of bricks useful for MOcing, I see. XD It'd be great to have one. Still, I agree with Toa Smoke Monster: why leaving out Mr. Freeze? Sounds nonsense.Anyways, thanks for the review!

Keep in mind that it's just as much about ease of distribution as it is about exchange rates. The U.S. has a massive distribution infrastructure in place, which makes it easier (and therefore cheaper) to supply Lego to retailers. Mind you, that doesn't make those ridiculous prices fair, particularly if ordering from online, when orders would be shipped individually anyway. But alas, Lego can't afford to tick off their brick-and-mortar retail partners, so prices are standardized on the higher end instead of the lower end. Yio, from what I've heard, it's often more economical to order Lego from America when you live in Australia. Not sure whether it'd be as advantageous for you, Kanye, but it wouldn't hurt to look into it.

He obviously managed to escape from the whole place.

The reason Mr. Freeze isn't going to be included in Arkham Asylum is probably because he'll be in a separate set next year. Don't forget, he was one of the 2013 Super Heroes minifigures revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. Chances are he'll appear in a set with the white-suited (antifreeze suit) Batman fig also revealed at Comic-Con, and possibly with the Aquaman fig.

I didn't realise that the set includes different villain panels for the cells. YAY FOR CUSTOMISATION.Also the Freeze cell is there as a reference to Batman and Robin, apparently. Great...I really wish this set included Hugo Strange. I can't see him fitting into any other set, unless they start basing stuff of Arkham City, but even then he's mostly behind the scenes. I really want a Hugo Strange minifig, and he surely wouldn't be too difficult for them to make.- Tilius

And now I believe every licensed set I own (besides Indiana Jones) has been released in a newer, better version. Yes, this set I have to say is much cooler than my current Arkham Asylum set I own. The minifigs... beautiful. I'm not much of a super hero nerd, but I do like this set a lot.

Amazon France actually I heard :P cuz from america its not much cheaper due to shipping. It is cheaper but like only a few dollars.
