LEGO sets bring some of our favorite worlds to life. Whether it’s a giant Star Wars AT-AT set or our actual world— which actually spins!—there’s little one cannot achieve with a little help from LEGO. But my favorite kinds of LEGO builds are the ones that don’t take up too much space. The builds I can admire on a daily basis as I walk through my apartment. Like intricate puzzles, LEGO art is perfect for framing. After all, who doesn’t love seeing their LEGO re-creation of Andy Warhol’s pastel Marilyn Monroe print up on the wall. Right next to their Beatles and Iron Man portraits, of course. Now, we can add our favorite DC Comics characters to the portrait wall.
LEGO’s Jim Lee Batman Collection celebrates the beloved comic book writer, artist, and DC Comics chief creative officer. To DC Comics fans, and any comic book fan, Jim Lee is a legend. And this new LEGO set allows fans to recreate a few characters as drawn by Jim Lee.
The Jim Lee Batman Collection is a 4,167-piece project that allows the creator to replicate one of three portraits. Pick your poison: Batman, the Joker, or Harley Quinn. And when you’re done, you’re gonna want to display it, so the set comes with a whole lot of accessories to bring this art to life. In addition to over 4,000 pieces, the set includes nine canvas wall decor plates, a signature tile, two hanger elements, a color palette, brick separator, and a brick-built frame.
All you need to do is hang it! The build has a price point of $119.99, but considering some of the intricate builds and their hefty prices, this isn’t too bad at all. Plus, if you’re not looking to add another headshot into the mix, you can even go bigger. According to LEGO, combining multiple kits creates the “ultimate memorabilia piece.” With two kits, the creator can make a combined Catwoman and Batman piece that’s a long horizontal portrait. Or with three kits, create a giant vertical Batman masterpiece.
Even better, the set comes with a QR code. If you scan it, you’ll get a soundtrack that’s perfect to play when creating this DC Comics work of art. The Jim Lee Batman Collection is now available for purchase. If this is the LEGO Bat-Signal, I am ready to answer the call.
