Polybags are products that are always loved by fans and children, especially when they are licensed and even more so if they contain something new or exclusive. Offered on the official online store for a promotional offer or offered for sale by a brand specializing in toys, these bags often delight the most complete collectors and children who are trying to optimize the use of their pocket money.
2022 will once again be a busy year in diverse and varied bags with many references, some of which are now known through LEGO and some specialist retailers. As for the usual licenses, we will note a Batmobile, inspired by that of the film The Batman scheduled for theatrical release in March 2022, which will also be available on a more consistent scale in the set 76181 Batmobile: The Penguin Chase from January 1st, an AT-ST in "Battle of Hoth" version which echoes the set 75322 Hoth AT-ST expected on the shelves from January 1, 2022, a Monkie Kid polybag with two skeletons, two Ninjago bags, one of which is even a 2-in-1 product with the possibility of assembling an alternative model in addition to the one planned, a polybag under Minecraft license with Alex accompanied by a turtle and the usual Creator, City, Friends DOTS or even DUPLO references which will always be good to take in exchange for a few euros or a reasonable minimum purchase.

Amazon has updated the description of the book LEGO DC Character Encyclopedia New Edition expected in May 2022 and we now know the character who will be inserted in the cover: it is a minifig of Val-Zod in Earth-2 version, as it appears for the first time in the Earth 2 comic # 19 published in 2014. We also know that a series around the character produced by Michael B. Jordan is being written for the streaming platform HBO Max.
The character is new at LEGO, the minifig is announced as exclusive to the book and the pad printing seems frankly successful. So there's no good reason not to afford this update to the DC Character Encyclopedia.
It's November 1, 2021, and as of today, LEGO is launching a small handful of new sets on its official online store. Attention, the LEGO set 10294 Titanic (629.99 €) will only be available for pre-order on November 1 at 9:00 a.m. for a shipment announced on November 8.
As usual, it's up to you to see whether to crack without waiting by paying the full price for these boxes or whether to show a little patience and wait for the inevitable reductions that will be offered in the boxes. weeks and months to come at Amazon, on FNAC.com and at a few other resellers.

Today we quickly tour the other Tumbler of the moment: the one from the LEGO DC set 76239 Batman Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown, a box of 422 pieces sold at the public price of 39.99 € which allows to assemble a slightly less ambitious version of the vehicle than that of the set 76240 Batman Batmobile Tumbler (2049 pieces - 229.99 €) that I told you about a few days ago.
The idea is no longer to assemble an ultra-detailed model of the machine, it is a children's toy inspired by the film Batman Begins which must be at the same time as faithful as possible to the reference vehicle without neglecting the solidity and the playability of the product. And the bet seems to me successful on all points with a rather detailed Tumbler whose body parts do not remain in our hands when we handle it.
The scale of this model also makes the Tumbler visually almost more "readable" than that of the set in my opinion. 76240 Batman Batmobile Tumbler. Some details logically go by the wayside but it is ultimately a good thing, the designer retaining only the essential attributes of the vehicle, without being able to do too much. The alternation between smooth surface and visible tenons is also more balanced here, the tenons which remain visible on the roof and the two rear fins do not shock. The side studs that line the glazing might be a bit thick with their ingots, but they drown out enough of the overall design that they don't stand out too much.
The internal design of the vehicle is well thought out, it is based on a very solid structure reinforced by Technic beams which allows it to guarantee the rigidity necessary to pass into the hands of the youngest. All the sub-assemblies which then take place around this central bucket are securely fixed to at least two clips with the exception of the uprights which frame the windows of the vehicle and the two rear fins.
The choice of tires used here seems consistent to me, we keep a size ratio faithful to the reference machine and the chosen tread is acceptable in both cases. No direction or suspensions, we are talking about a toy at 40 € which is satisfied with the minimum.
The cockpit is detailed enough not to have the impression that the designer has overlooked this space capable of accommodating two minifigs. Batman can sit at the controls with his mask on his head and the vehicle's roof closes without forcing. The two Stud Shooters placed in the front do not disfigure this Tumbler, you can always remove them if the functionality seems superfluous to you. Seven stickers are needed to refine the aesthetics of the vehicle a little, two of these stickers embodying the control screens in the cockpit and the rest of the board used to dress the bodywork.
The two minifigs delivered in this box are generally successful. On the one hand Batman in a version a little less detailed than that of the set 76240 Batman Batmobile Tumbler and on the other a completely new version of the Scarecrow.
Batman is not entitled to a pair of pad-printed legs, this is the usual price to pay for a box sold for around forty euros. LEGO, on the other hand, provides us with an alternative head for the character, an element that reproduces the vision of Scarecrow when the latter becomes intoxicated with his own gas in Batman Begins. Why not. Batman's torso is consistent with the movie version, with this outfit being less sculpted than the one in the following flaps.
Scarecrow is rather faithful to the version seen on the screen even if we do not really find the shapeless mask worn by the character, LEGO is content here to padprint a classic head. A dedicated accessory would have been welcome, as it is, we have the impression of having in the hands of a guy who simply badly digested his oysters. Neutral legs for him too, it's union fare, but the torso is nicely done even if the fringe of the mask that extends over the collar is not quite the same color as the shade of the head. Blue tie, rope around the neck, flesh-colored hands, the rest is totally in line with the character of the film.
You want a credible Tumbler but you don't want to spend 230 € to buy yourself the big model of the set 76240 Batman Batmobile Tumbler ? This little box is made for you, no doubt about it.
The vehicle is really successful and it returns without difficulty the versions of the sets 7888 The Tumbler: Joker's Ice Cream Surprise (2008) et 76001 The Bat vs. Bane: Tumbler Chase (2013) to the rank of simple, somewhat sloppy toys. The aesthetics are there, the machine is immediately recognizable and it benefits from a sufficient level of detail to finish its career on a shelf alongside for example the Batmobiles of the sets 76188 Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile et 40433 1989 Batmobile Limited Edition.
Note: The set presented here, provided by LEGO, is as usual involved. Deadline fixed at 27th October next at 23pm.
