Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 by Littleworlds

I am quite happy that you get two of the most prominent characters of the franchise [...] at a comparably low price point. And they look indeed excellent. The bikes are pretty decent, too. Maybe a bit on the simple side, but they are totally fine for the price. I am very happy with the set and I'm sure it offers quite the play-value for kids too!

LEGO fans of all ages love LEGO Batman, and the addition of the two other characters will probably make this set a hit with older collectors and adult fans.

Recommendation: no 4.1 / 5 from 20 reviews

I got this for my birthday, I asked for it mainly for the minifigs. Deadshot was definitely satisfying, with those cool printed arms of his, the new 52 Harley Quinn was really good, the "pow" on the hammer was the perfect touch. (plus the fact it clips onto the bike is awesome.) batman was also really good. I was happy to get some silver batrangs I expected there to only be one but the extra pieces included another so that was cool. Harley's bike was an amazing build. Batman's bike was cool, but it was too similar to Harley's so it wasn't as exiting to make. other than that, it is an amazing product. I hope to see some more one-of-a-kind mini figures.

Recommendation: meh 81 / 100 by Tom

I do recommend this set. You get a pretty good value in terms of brick cost, and in terms of the number of Minifigures included. Buying this for build-time alone is not a great value, but if you have little people, they will probably get quite a bit of play time out of it because it is very nicely made. If you already have Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas, then you are getting a duplicate of Batman, but the other Minifigs are well done.

Recommendation: meh 4 / 5 by Jay

All in all, Gotham City Cycle Chase is an extremely satisfying DC Super Heroes set. The fact that it's quite affordable (especially if you can get it on sale) is yet another plus. If you're a DC Super Heroes fan or even a casual comic book fan, I highly recommend picking this set up.

Recommendation: no 2.6 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

I feel this is not that great a set. The figures are quite good, but the two motorcycles themselves are uninteresting and devoid of play features (they remind me of 70622 Desert Lightning). I think whether or not you should get this is determined by how much you like those figures. The two bikes also aren't large enough to justify the price tag IMO.
