Since Brick Insights began indexing LEGO reviews we've added 354.4 reviews each week on average. That's a bit misleading since thousands of reviews were added in bursts, but still - that's a lot of reviews! This page shows you what happened this week, since 2019-11-29. You could say it's a week of reviews in review if you wanted to be a bit cheeky.
These sets have received extra attention, with multiple reviews for each of them. They're all from 2019 or 2020 and ought to be available for purchase.
5 / 5 by ttpm To say this kit is detailed is a bit of an understatement. Between the scale and high piece count (which tops even the 2011 Ultimate Collector Series Super Star Destroyer), a LOT of work was done to make this one stand out among the 16 years' worth of Star Destroyer entries in the LEGO Star Wars line. The instruction guide itself (presented in three languages including English, French, and Spanish) is basically one part collector's art book, as it contains features about the ship's lore within the Star Wars universe as well as tales from the LEGO designers who brought this piece to life!
by Elspeth De Montes for New Elementary This year marks the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton's iconic Batman movie and The LEGO Group have announced 76139 1989 Batmobile, built from over 3,300 pieces, measuring over 60cm long and sitting on a rotating display plate. It includes two one-of-a-kind LEGO® elements designed specifically for this set, to get a close representation to the original movie.
4.5 / 5 by ttpm Detail on the piece is stunning, and one feature of particular interest is the way the sliding door for the vehicle is faithfully recreated with incredibly subtle LEGO piecing.
95 / 100 by Tom for True North Bricks This would have made an amazing retail set. I would have bought it without a doubt, and I am sure that others would have too. It is very detailed, and true to the original movie version. Additionally, $39.99 makes an excellent value for a kit this size. Fans of this version of the Batmobile will certainly enjoy it, and it is almost a shame that you can only get it by purchasing the larger, much more expensive version of the car.
5 / 5 by Ace Kim for From Bricks To Bothans By itself, 40433 1989 Batmobile barely resembles its source material. But as a free companion piece to the UCS 1989 Batmobile, it's perfect.
by CapnRex101 for Brickset News 40433 1989 Batmobile is definitely among my favourite promotional items which LEGO has released. This model captures the distinctive aesthetic of its onscreen counterpart and incorporates some great details, notably including several air intakes and the trans-yellow headlights that look superb. I like the rotating display stand too, drawing another parallel with the new large-scale Batmobile.
by Graham for Brick Fanatics Once again, the LEGO design team has risen to the challenge of providing a Christmas set that lives up to the expectation that has been created by the many excellent models that have gone before. At the price and piece count, it is hard to imagine what more could have been achieved – the set balances display and play perfectly, deserving a place on everyone's shelf alongside the rest of the Christmas decorations this year.
93 / 100 by Tom for True North Bricks In the end, don't look a gift horse in the mouth. This set is valued at $39.99, yet it is free with purchase. While not my favourite LEGO® freebie of all time, it is a solid one all the same. Additionally, it is one of the more substantial freebies that I have gotten. So, if you have a larger purchase in mind, you can't really go wrong getting this set for free with it.
by Brickfinder A much welcome update on the LEGO Christmas tree design that not only refines the look but adds another dimension of playability.
