31205 lego art jim lee batman collection 7

LEGO today unveils the novelty of the LEGO ART range which had been the subject ofa bit of teasing in recent days: The set 31025 Jim Lee Batman Collection, a box of 4167 pieces sold at the public price of 119.99 € which will allow you to assemble different mosaics from March 1st. The set alone offers three characters to choose from: Batman, Harley Quinn and the Joker. By combining several copies, the bill will increase but the possibilities will be interesting with two combinations that I find rather attractive.

As usual, the product will come with a two-hour audio podcast (in English) to listen to during assembly.

Let's go for a new promotional offer available on the official online store and in LEGO Stores: the set 40532 Vintage Taxi (163 pieces) is offered from 200 € of purchase without restriction of range from January 28, 2022 and at best until February 13, 2022 (if there are any left by then).

almost everything has already been said about this offer, both in substance with a relatively high minimum purchase and in form with a nice promotional product inspired by LEGO from a Citroën front-wheel drive from the 30s, so it's now at everyone to sort it out and assess the interest of the proposal made by LEGO and its constraints. It would also seem that I was bad language, the purchase of sets invoiced 199.99 € whose reference 10297Boutique Hotel obtains a copy of the promotional set.

Note that it is currently possible to combine this offer with the one valid until February 6th which allows you to be offered a copy of the set 40491 Year of the Tiger which is automatically added to the basket from 85 € of purchase without restriction of range.

Today we are quickly interested in the content of the LEGO set 40532 Vintage Taxi, a small box of 163 pieces which will be offered on the official online store and in LEGO Stores from 200 € of purchase without restriction of range from January 28, 2022.

The affiliation of this small promotional product stamped 18+ with the world of Modulars is obvious with a vehicle, a piece of sidewalk and a minifig, LEGO even taking up the aesthetics of the packaging of the 2022 edition, the set 10297Boutique Hotel (199.99 €), with the green banner at the foot of the construction. It can therefore be understood that some purchasers of the Structure 2022 who didn't wait to buy the set are a little frustrated at not being able to take advantage of this offer and will have to resign themselves to spending another €200 to add this taxi and its minifig to their collection.

The 6-stud wide vehicle to be assembled here seems rather successful to me, even if in my opinion it lacks enough to definitively endorse its taxi function. A sticker on the doors, for example, would have made it possible to assert more definitively the role of this vehicle in the streets of LEGOModularCity. The confusion is also maintained by the one and only minifig delivered in this box, it is presented as a possible passenger accompanied by its suitcase but LEGO also puts it in scene at the wheel of the vehicle. Driver or passenger, we don't really know. I will spare you the detail of the construction process, the photos below speak for themselves and everything is assembled in a few minutes. No stickers in this box.

By ridding the vehicle of the two parts that form the light signal on the roof, you get a pretty old car that can circulate in the streets of your dioramas. The most demanding can also replace the few visible yellow parts to obtain something even more successful.

As soon as the first visuals of the product were posted online, some fans saw it as a nod to the donut thief of the Structure 2021, the benchmark 10278 Police Station (179.99 €). Why not even if only the face and the beret of the minifig can refer to last year's figurine, the torso being different.

The presence of the donut will however be enough to make the link for those who absolutely want to find a reference there. The torso used here is quite common, it has also been found in about fifteen sets since 2018. The face of the driver/passenger is also a regular in LEGO sets, it made its first appearance on the shoulders of the owner of the set shop LEGO Ideas 21310 Old Fishing Store in 2017.

This small promotional product with polished packaging and rather successful content will require you to spend 200 € on the official online store and we could consider that this minimum purchase amount is not so high as it seems when we look at the official price of some boxes.

It will therefore be up to everyone to see if the offer is worth the effort, knowing that the secondary market will not fail to be invaded by copies of this box in the days following its launch. The sellers will then fight among themselves to sell their stock and it will probably be possible to obtain this small set at a reasonable price without having to pay a box at a high price on the official online store. A slightly funny detail: the purchase of the set 10297Boutique Hotel will not be enough, it is only sold for 199.99 €...
