Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

All in all, a great, all-rounded minifigure. If I wanted to fault him, it would only be that the lobster can sometimes fall off the plate (no connections). Otherwise, he's really great.

Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5 by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

Overall, The LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures (71017) is a very interesting series, to say the least. There are a number of very obscure characters from the Batman universe but director Chris McKay did mention before that the movie will go deep into Batman lore which includes characters from Batman's Rogues Gallery and that's exactly what we're getting in this series.

Recommendation: meh 4.46 / 5 from 35 reviews

Bought this collection for my son, roughly over a 2 week period. First started buying randomly, then began feeling the bags to find each one we needed yet. Took some time sitting in the isles at Walmart each time I went to try and find the ones we needed but it was worth it compared to just randomly picking and buying them because I have doubles and triples of almost every one. I literally have about 2 and a half full sets. But totally worth it my 3 year old son is obsessed with Legos and Batman is his favorite and mine as well. So we just love this collection and have it on display! Loved the movie and we have every released set for the movies new collection except the batman movie maker set. Absolutely love it all!

Recommendation: meh 4.4 / 5 from 36 reviews

As much as it stinks to have to pay for the figure on its own.. my brother and sister in law have literally bought boxes of these blind bags looking for this particular piece. So to pay for this, to see the smile on his face was totally worth it. I would do it again in a hearbeat. It also arrived directly ontime and in good packaging.

My son is thrilled to have the whole set! Each Minifigure came in the Lego packaging and each was unique (no duplicates). Shipping was prompt - actually came in two days with Prime (some Lego things I've ordered took longer despite being listed as Prime). Very pleased!!

Recommendation: no 7 / 10 by WhiteFang

The parts assortment are above average. The biggest takeaway is the introduction of the new lobster. I love this new element very much as it increase the LEGO food varieties.

Recommendation: no 3 / 5 by Jay

I'm pretty happy about Lobster-Lovin' Batman, he's got a really useful torso that can easily be reused for other minifigures and I'm absolutely in love with the Lobster. In fact, I think the Lobster on its own, is the MVP and competely steals the thunder from Bat Hefner.

Like other LEGO Collectible Minifigures, each figure comes sealed in a blind bag, and there are 60 figures in case. Our case broke into 3 complete sets of 20 figures, which will make sharing a case with friends much easier.
