Best LEGO Batmobiles

1. Budget Option: DC Super Heroes Batmobile: The Penguin Chase

This missile-firing Batmobile set features one of the coolest designs the iconic vehicle has seen yet. Equipped with blue flames and two spring-loaded mega missiles, this is a set most adults would love to play with. In addition to building the Batmobile, kids will also get to live out their own Batman adventures with both a Batman and Penguin LEGO figure to create fun scenarios.

1 Budget Option DC Super Heroes Batmobile The Penguin Chase
Recommended age: 8 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Fits with other Batman sets easily 
❤️ Very sturdy and fun build 
❤️ Doesn’t take too long to build 

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Easy to lose missile pieces

2. DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler Scarecrow Showdown

One of the biggest changes we old Batman fans noticed with the latest movies was the design of the new Batmobile. Now looking more like a tank, the Tumbler would inevitably get a LEGO set. This set is the perfect blend for kids who want a challenging build but end up with a toy they can spend hours with. It’s the ultimate addition to any Batman lover’s collection, with Batman and Scarecrow figures included, plus weapons.

2 DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler Scarecrow Showdown
Recommended age: 8 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Perfect for fans of the new movies 
❤️ Great size toy that can be played with anywhere
❤️ Looks great to display

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Hood isn’t very secure
💔 Not the most exciting figures with it

3. DC Super Heroes Batmobile Tumbler

Now, be careful not to confuse this one with the previous entry because this Tumbler version is only for the most dedicated Batman fans. In particular, this is an excellent option for you to share and build together with your youngster. The final product of this build is a near-perfect recreation of the Tumbler that just begs to be displayed. The included stand, stats card and two figures are just icing on the bat cake!

3 DC Super Heroes Batmobile Tumbler
Recommended age:17 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Incredibly detailed model
❤️ Perfect to display
❤️ Great to build together

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Not designed to be played with as much
💔 Very expensive

Best LEGO Batcycles

4. Budget Option: DC Super Heroes Batman Versus Harley Quinn

As cool as the Batmobile is, who can deny that the Batcycle is even cooler? We all loved pretending our bikes were motorcycles as kids and would’ve loved a Batcycle toy like this. This is a straightforward LEGO set to build, with only 42 pieces, but it results in a slick and fun motorcycle toy. The Harley figure is an excellent addition for creating a fun Batman adventure.

4 Budget Option DC Super Heroes Batman Versus Harley Quinn
Recommended age: 4 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Very easy to build
❤️ Detailed instructions to teach kids how to build

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Might be too simple for older kids

5. DC Batman and Selina Kyle

While not as iconic a sidekick as Robin, Selina Kyle’s Catwoman is a classic character that keeps things interesting for the Dark Knight. Pair the two with their own motorcycles and you’ve got a recipe for adventure. This set has two motorcycles to build, one for Batman and the other for Selina, plus both figures. To help complete the scene, your kids will also get to set up a glow-in-the-dark Bat-signal.

5 DC Batman and Selina Kyle
Recommended age: 6 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Two unique motorcycles to build
❤️ Sturdy builds for lots of play
❤️ Fun designs 

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Some pieces are very small and difficult to connect

6. Batman Mr. Freeze Batcycle Battle

The Joker will always be Batman’s primary antagonist, but I always loved Mr. Freeze after hearing all the so-bad-its-good one-liners Arnold delivered in the film. While this set can’t provide those lines, you can always make them up for yourself. This set has a unique Batcycle that can fit both Batman and Robin, but is also split into two separate motorcycles to chase down Freeze on his snowmobile. 

6 Batman Mr. Freeze Batcycle Battle
Recommended age: 6 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Batcycle can separate and attach
❤️ Unique mini-figures 
❤️ Batmobile can launch missiles

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Mr. Freeze’s snowmobile is basic
💔 Wheels sometimes get stuck

Best LEGO Batcaves

7. Budget Option: DC Batman Batcave: The Riddler Face-Off

We all wish we had our own Batcave, perhaps even more as adults than when we were kids. The allure of a secret, high-tech base is just too awesome to argue with. This LEGO set not only lets your kid have a Batcave but also lets them build and customize it. It has fantastic computer screens, maps, tools and six figures to play out all sorts of Batman adventures.

7 Budget Option DC Batman Batcave The Riddler Face Off
Recommended age: 8 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Great Batcave design
❤️ Comes with a ton of extra toys and accessories
❤️ Large enough to display

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Not very customizable
💔 Included figures aren’t the best characters

8. DC Batman Batcave Clayface Invasion

The entire point of the Batcave is to be ready for anything and this LEGO set certainly fits the bill. I was never a massive Clayface fan before, but this set is way more than the title lets on. This Batcave comes with a Batcomputer zone, weapons room, trophy room, transformation tower, jail modules and even a Bat-tank! Add in all the figures of Batman’s friends and foes, and you might end up playing with this set more than you kid.

8 DC Batman Batcave Clayface Invasion
Recommended age: 8 years and above

What We Love:
❤️ Massive Batcave set 
❤️ Tons of adjustable parts
❤️ Additional figures and vehicle

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Might be a tough build for young kids
💔 Expensive

9. Super Heroes The Batcave

As great as the Batman films are, we all have a soft spot for the Batman comics and cartoons. Thankfully, at least one Batcave LEGO set captures that style and it’s a perfect way to share that Batman nostalgia with the new generation. Featuring Batman (and Bruce Wayne), Robin, Poison Ivy and Bane, all in their classic costumes, this Batcave come with everything you need to create your own Batman comic. Kids can use the elevator to turn Bruce into Batman, plus face off on the Batcycle or Bane’s drill tank.

9 Super Heroes The Batcave
Recommended age: 7 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Very interactive set
❤️ Lots of details and things to look at 
❤️ Tons of surprises to discover

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Moving parts sometimes get stuck
💔 Extra vehicles are basic

Best LEGO Batman Cowls

10. Budget Option: DC Batman Classic TV Series Batman Cowl

Biff! Wham! Kapow! Batman has evolved over the years, but Adam West’s portrayal will always stand out. Thankfully, his legacy as the Dark Knight, as goofy as it was, won’t be forgotten. This LEGO cowl recreates the classic mask from the show, drawn-on eyebrows and all. It has a fantastic stand and nameplate to showcase your appreciation for the classics.

10 Budget Option DC Batman Classic TV Series Batman Cowl
Recommended age: 18 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Incredibly nostalgic 
❤️ Not a tough build
❤️ Good size model

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Only fun for displaying after being built

11. DC Batman: Batman Cowl

Batman’s silhouette still sends shivers down my spine. Those iconic sharp ears and narrow eyes are just too captivating and evocative of this fantastic superhero not to celebrate. This cowl set isn’t based on any specific Batman mask but is more emblematic of the character. As a decoration, kids and adults can proudly display this as a testament to their passion for this superhero.

11 DC Batman Batman Cowl
Recommended age: 18 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Looks fantastic
❤️ Great for collectors and fans
❤️ Makes for a fantastic gift

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Kids may not enjoy it much after building it
💔 Not the best instructions

12. LEGO Batman Minifigure

Back when I was a kid, all I wanted was figures of my favorite heroes. The only problem was how expensive they tended to be, but now there’s a LEGO mini-figure for just about any superhero you can think of. If your kid loves LEGO and is a Batman fan, this mini-figure can fit right into all their LEGO adventures. Plus, being so compact, they can easily bring it on the go!

12 LEGO Batman Minifigure
Recommended age:13 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Detailed Batman toy
❤️ Comes with a rope, cape and batarang 
❤️ Fits with any other LEGO set

What We Don’t Love:
💔 No building or learning required

Best LEGO Batwings

13. Budget Option: Super Heroes Batwing Battle Over Gotham City

It only makes sense that Batman, of all superheroes, would have a flying vehicle. This Batwing can soar through the air after Joker and his helicopter, even shooting two flick missiles and a bomb release function. Any kid could spend hours building these sets and flying them around the house in action-packed aerial battles.

13 Budget Option Super Heroes Batwing Battle Over Gotham City
Recommended age: 7 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️  Two vehicles in one pack
❤️ Cool and unique Batwing design
❤️ No small pieces 

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Batwing is fragile once built
💔 Not an iconic batwing design

14. DC Batman 1989 Batwing

Of all the Batwing designs out there, I always think of the 1989 design first. How the ship resembles the Bat symbol is just too perfect and recognizable. This model Batwing is a massive project perfect for collaborating with your youngster on building. Plus, while the model is more for display purposes, it has three figures ready to play with if you’d rather keep the Batwing on the stand.

14 DC Batman 1989 Batwing
Recommended age: 18 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Best Batwing design
❤️  Looks great on display
❤️ Comes with a fun information card

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Wouldn’t be suitable for a young kid to build alone
💔 Isn’t a toy as much as a display piece

15. Batman Batwing and the Riddler

This Batwing set is almost an entire Batman playset in one. This is the kind of LEGO project I wish was around when I was a kid since it could easily provide months of fun. This Batwing set has the Batwing, the Riddler’s helicopter and even a GCPD police car. Add in figures of Batman, Commissioner Gordon, Riddler and Shazam and your child can create fully-feature Batman plots.

15 Batman Batwing and the Riddler
Recommended age: 7 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Fully packed set 
❤️ Lots of extra vehicles and characters with customization options
❤️ Great for building and playing with others

What We Don’t Love:
💔 MIssle pieces are easy to lose

Best LEGO Batboats

16. Budget Option: Batboat The Penguin Persuit!

I always wished the Batboat got more attention. It can be just as cool as any of Batman’s other vehicles, though it doesn’t show up nearly as often since he’s not fighting many water-based crimes. The Penguin is the perfect villain to pair up with Batman to show off the Batboat. Batman gets his sleek, high-tech boat, while the Penguin rides a menacing duck.

16 Budget Option Batboat The Penguin Persuit
Recommended age: 4 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Perfect for young builders
❤️ Sturdy design 
❤️ Two detailed figures included

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Neither boat floats
💔 Somewhat small

17. Batboat – Hunt for Killer Croc

Any kid with this set will instantly become the most popular of their friends. This boat looks just as futuristic and high-tech as something Batman would design. The Batboat, which is more of a hovercraft, comes with plenty of gadgets, a secondary speeder, plus a swamp jet for Killer Croc. On land or sea, this Batboat will become an integral part of any Batman fan’s collection

17 Batboat Hunt for Killer Croc
Recommended age: 6 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Very detailed boat 
❤️ Two other vehicles and figures
❤️ Features plenty of props and gadgets

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Very expensive set

18. Super Heroes Arctic Batman vs Mr. Freeze

I love seeing my favorite heroes in alternate costumes. For Batman, I’ve always loved his various winter suits because of how they contrasted with his normal black ones, which is only a small part of why I picked this set. Chasing down Mr. Freeze in his polar suit, this Batboat is ready to speed across water and ice thanks to its sled design. For backup, Aquaman also joins in for the aquatic battles ahead.

18 Super Heroes Arctic Batman vs Mr. Freeze
Recommended age: 6 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Sleek vehicle design
❤️  Unique polar Batman figure
❤️ Features flick discs, bombs and an opening cockpit 

What We Don’t Love:
💔  Not much extra in the set

Best Batman Scenes Recreated with LEGO

19. Budget Option: Batman and The Joker Escape

I always wished I could get my hands on a LEGO set based on an actual scene from a Batman movie. Batman has a ton of these amazing locations to draw from. This simple set features the front gates and towers of Arkham Asylum, plus a suite of characters, vehicles and tools to fully roleplay classic Batman tales. There are plenty of secrets and things to discover for a young builder too.

19 Budget Option Batman and The Joker Escape
Recommended age: 4 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Not a giant set
❤️ Has two other vehicles and four figures 
❤️ Easy to pick up and move

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Not very customizable
💔 Not much actual building of the scene

20. Arkham Asylum

Arkham Asylum is as synonymous with Batman as Gotham is at this point, only this single location is never quite what it seems. Despite it being home to all of Batman’s greatest villains, I never get tired of visiting. This set allows your child to build the entire Arkham Asylum, complete with multiple floors, rooms, props and secrets. With all the figures, sections and scenes that can be created, this set will draw out any Batman fan’s imagination for hours.

20 Arkham Asylum
Recommended age: 12 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Huge, detailed set 
❤️ Tons of extra figures and props
❤️ Extremely customizable

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Expensive
💔 Needs a lot of space to play with

Best LEGO Batman Villains

21. Budget Option: LEGO BrickHeadz The Joker

As menacing as his character can be, there’s no denying that The Joker is just as popular as Batman himself. I may even find him a bit more interesting, thanks to just how mysterious he is after all these years. Any Joker fan will love this full model of the iconic clown villain. His green hair, purple suit, and clown makeup translate into a charming display piece. It’s the perfect addition to any Batfan’s collection.

21 Budget Option LEGO BrickHeadz The Joker
Recommended age: 10 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Charming design
❤️ Great for all ages
❤️ Perfect decoration

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Can’t really be played with
💔 Building the hair is a little confusing

22. Batman Movie Clayface Splat Attack

Clayface has been in Batman’s rotating cast of villains for years but was never one of the most popular. Once I saw this LEGO set, it became clear that he was the perfect choice for this collaboration. Clayface is a massive golum that is perfect for LEGO. Coming right out of the super-popular LEGO Batman Movie, plenty of young Batman fans will be drawn to recreating this character and scenes from the film. The included Batman figure gives them everything they need to play!

22 Batman Movie Clayface Splat Attack
Recommended age: 8 years and above 

What We Love:
❤️ Clayface is perfect for LEGO
❤️ Designed after the LEGO Batman Movie
❤️ Swapable limbs

What We Don’t Love:
💔 Sometimes falls apart
💔 Could have more arm parts

Frequently Asked Questions About LEGO Batman Sets

🙋‍♂️ What ages like LEGO Batman set?

LEGOs can appeal to kids of almost any age, but Batman LEGOs are most popular with ages 4 and up. This is usually when kids begin to take an interest in superheroes, as well as creating their own stories with toys.

🙋‍♂️ Is there anything to worry about when it comes to playing with superhero toys?

While it might be concerning to get young kids toys featuring superheroes that constantly do battle, even without the use of weapons, there has never been any scientific evidence to support a relationship between violent media and increased aggression in young viewers. If you are still concerned, there are plenty of sets on our list that feature no weapons or violence.

🙋‍♂️ Is playing LEGO good for kids?

Absolutely! Playing with LEGO is massively beneficial for kids of all ages. These little bricks not only help develop fine motor skills in the act of building, but also teamwork, dedication, problem-solving and creative thinking skills. This is one toy you can feel good about your kids spending hours on!

So… What LEGO Batman set Should I Get?

That’s a tricky question, but an excellent place to start would be one of the LEGO Batman scenes, such as the Batman and The Joker Escape, as they provide a good amount of building and things to play with once complete. If you’re giving a set to someone with some LEGO Batman sets, any of the vehicles, like the DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler Scarecrow Showdown, would be perfect additions to their collection.

Finally, for older fans, the cowl display sets like the DC Batman: Batman Cowl are fun and make great decorations. If there are any LEGO Batman sets we somehow missed, let us know so we can include it for others to see.
