Presumably because they could and it was there, LEGO, the only name in building block toys worth knowing, has, in its infinite desire to make every branded set in the history of everything, made Wonder Woman’s invisible jet the secondary vehicle in a new Justice League set. Is it made of clear plastic? Of course it is.
The set in question is called “Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas!” and is just the latest in LEGO’s long series of DC Comics-related sets, most of which include at least two heroes from the Justice League and a villain. This one, as you might assume, comes with Gorilla Grodd and also has minifigs of Captain Cold, Batman, The Flash, a frightened truck driver (because his banana truck is being destroyed by Grodd), and obviously Wonder Woman.
The fact that her invisible jet is one of the vehicles (which also features blue flame and grey rocket launchers, making it not at all invisible) isn’t quite as weird as you might think. It is Wonder Woman’s favorite mode of transportation, when she’s not flying under her own power (as she’s been known to do). The weirdest part to me is that the big vehicle is like a giant Batman mech suit. Has Batman ever used a mech suit? I didn’t think so. Also, Grodd and Captain Cold being in the set suggest this should be Flash-themed, and he is there, but since he doesn’t have any vehicles to speak of, it seems they needed something else to warrant the $80+ asking price. Oh, LEGO.
