Like other expensive Lego products, the model comes with plenty of pieces—3,306. It measures a hefty 23 inches in length, 8 inches wide, and 4 inches high. Like the movie version, it also comes with a cockpit that slides open, a wraparound windshield, two grappling hooks, and two hidden machine guns with a pop-up function that’s activated by rotating the turbine exhaust.

Other features include two minifigure seats, a steering wheel, stick shift, and dashboard stickers. There are also Batman logos on the wheels, and the set comes with 3 Lego minifigures: Batman himself, The Joker, and Vicki Vale, as well as a brick-built minifigure display stand and a rotating display stand for the car.

Lego's 1989 Batmobile will cost $249.99 when it launches on November 29 as part of the company's Black Friday event. It can be purchased from Lego.com and retail stores, and those who buy one between November 29 and December 5 will also get a miniature replica of the Batmobile.

Last month saw Lego launch its Imperial Star Destroyer, a 4,784-piece model that measures almost four feet in length and costs $700—expensive, but hardcore Star Wars fans are unlikely to be put off.

Amused to see people spend obscene amount of money on these overpriced building blocks. I guess I'm one of those who don't have interest in these things. Thankfully.

Yeah, me either. I'd rather fire up the table saw and make something I can actually use, ride my motorcycle, or play my guitar(s)

I guess my skills, talents and interests, aren't sophisticated or developed sufficiently enough to tackle such a massive waste of time and money, and see it through to it's anticlimactic. worthless conclusion..Lego seems destined to become a euphemism for, "3D jigsaw puzzles, for arch nerds.

The Philly Zoo has this crap as animal models all over the grounds. And here I thought a zoo was supposed to be a place where one could see and admire real, living, breathing, animals. Am I severely misguided miserable old coot or what?
