The LEGO Mighty Micros line are a series of small affordable sets featuring some of the most high profile superheroes around. Each set consists of two characters & vehicles, one a hero the other a villain.
This set sees Batman up against his feline inspired nemesis Catwoman. You get 2 minifigures, 2 vehicles, and a couple of accessories.
As with all the other minifigures in this line, these ones have the shorter non-jointed legs usually reserved for shorter characters. They also have a more cartoony expressions (which is saying something given they’re LEGO) than the usual minifigures.
In this particular set you get a very cute mini Batmobile, as well as a cuter ‘Catmobile’, that even has a tail. There are also accessories of a Batarang, a diamond (presumably why Batman is chasing Catwoman), and a carton of milk – we all know cats love milk…
Like the others, this is decent value for money for a licensed set given that it has 2 vehicles and minifigures. We have a lot of Batman minifigures, as well as a few Batmobiles – so while it’s fun to have another, for me the big draw for this set was the Catwoman figure, and her Catmobile. As ever, I’m always keen for my daughter to have a good range of female character toys to play with too.
She is a big Batman fan – especially LEGO Batman – so this was another winner with her. But it was also great to be able to add another female character to the mix.
While I’m not a fan of these short leg minifigures, I get why they’re done here – so they work with the small vehicles. Anyway, it’s easily fixed by replacing the legs if you want.
The LEGO DC Super Heroes Mighty Micros: Batman vs Catwoman set has an RRP of £8.99. We were provided with a set from LEGO for the purposes of this review.
