good 5 / 5 from 1 review

This is a fun set! MetalBeard is awesome and super fun to build. The Batman this comes with is neat too. It's great for a smaller set and blended well with our other Lego Movie sets and mini figures. It took my 7 year old about 10-15 minutes to build completely on her own. Overall, if they love it, so do I!

Battle-Ready Batman and MetalBeard is a good set to have, even at full price. While the value of this set is not phenomenal, it is also not that bad all things considered. The build is also good, and the MetalBeard character is really nicely designed. You get two main characters from the movie in this kit, but Batman is really the pièce-de-resistance for me.

This set is ok for the price. The price per part ratio of ten cents is not quite there, however the MetalBeard figure and Batman's throne are still substantial. 70836 definitely feels like you get more than you would get from the CITY line for $20. Play features include opening MetalBeard's treasure chest, posing MetalBeard's legs, adjusting the crow's nest, and moving Batman's "You're Welcome" sign from side to side with a very simple geared mechanism. The Batman figure is probably the real highlight of the set. LEGO has not made any other Batman figures like this one before. I will let you look at the picture to see for yourself. Batman's shoulder armor is actual rubber, just like LEGO tires. All told, if you are a fan of the characters then go ahead and buy the set, but if you are somewhat into it wait for a sale before picking it up. This set is good, however, the best LEGO Movie 2 set of the smaller ones is definitely 70841 Benny's Space Squad.

average 3.1 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

I think this is one of the weakest sets in the LEGO Movie 2 lineup. The builds are very unimpressive and the minifigure selection is fairly mediocre (apart from Batman, but a better version of him exists). The price is also on the high side, especially in the U.S., and there isn't much playability to be had in this set if you ask me.

As its name indicates, the characters are undoubtedly the focus of 70836 Battle-Ready Batman and MetalBeard. In that respect, this is an outstanding set as the new Batman minifigure looks absolutely tremendous and MetalBeard is impressive too, although the original design from 70807 MetalBeard's Duel remains my personal favourite.

This does not feel quite like the best value set in The LEGO Movie 2 theme, but the Metalbeard is extremely well executed and worth owning. Getting this Batman minifigure is a must too, so while it may not be the first set to pick up, it should be on any LEGO movie collector's wishlist.

Although another smaller set from The LEGO Movie 2 range, it does have some fun features. The Bat-throne is a little underwhelming, but it's more than made up for with the great new Batman minifigure. I'm also surprised how much I like MetalBeard. As mentioned, I really expected it to be a random mash-up of part than results in a iffy unstable build. But it's totally opposite, only thing I'd would of liked to have seen would be some sort of studded surface within the Crow's Nest, so you could place Maddox in there a little more stably. The larger-scale MetalBeard set from The LEGO Movie sets, was a great build and one I still have on display, although the crab-mech MetalBeard isn't has impressive, it's still a great version of the character.
