Recommendation: yes 9 / 10 by MKJoshA

This set is nearly perfect. If you're a Batman fan you'll love it. It makes for a great display piece either on your shelf or hanging on the wall. If you have the 2019 Batmobile it will look amazing next to it, but it also looks great on its own. If you have the budget and the desire, go get it!

Recommendation: meh 4.45 / 5 from 41 reviews

This set is definitely one of the coolest Batman themed sets I've ever built. It is extremely detailed inside and out. It displays perfectly with and without the stand and on the wall. It is a symmetrical build so there is mediocre repetition. But it's extremely sturdy and very easy to move around. My nephew really enjoyed playing with it and since it's that sturdy and does not contain many parts that detach easily. I didn't have to worry about any little pieces breaking off. And, just like the recent Batmobile, this LEGO was given the right age rating. Overall, you should definitely buy this one if you have the Batmobile. PS. I hope they release the Batboat in the near future.

Recommendation: yes by Graham

There is something very special about the 1989 Batman film. Arguably, the Christopher Nolan trilogy of films offers the definitive big-screen Batman, but that series could not have existed had Tim Burton not already redefined what a superhero film could be with his take on the character. For those of the right age, for who Keaton will always be ‘their Batman', then they owe it to themselves to own this spectacular, accurate rendition of the Batwing. It is the perfect companion piece to 76139 1989 Batmobile, living up to the standard set last year.

Recommendation: meh by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

Overall if you're a Batman fan in general, you're probably going to pick up the new LEGO DC 1989 Batwing (76161). It matches well with the Tim Burton 1989 Batmobile it obviously makes a great display piece to your collection. The build itself sometimes gets a bit repetitive due to the fact that both sides of the ship are pretty much the same. The details on the Batwing are decent, mainly in the cockpit area with the Joker sticker. The wall mounting feature is a nice addition for those who want to do that.

Recommendation: meh by CapnRex101

76139 1989 Batmobile was among my favourite sets produced during 2019 and substantial expectations therefore surround 76161 1989 Batwing. I think this rendition of the celebrated Batwing satisfies those high expectations, albeit without matching the remarkable precedent established by the previous model. Subtle details cover the exterior and the shaping is lovely, particularly around the wings which are deceptively elaborate in their construction.
