LEGO DC Super Heroes Bat-Pod (5004590) Details

An image of the new LEGO DC Super Heroes Bat-Pod (5004590) set was recently leaked by AC Pin. Thanks to LEGO Ambassador Russell, more details have come out.

This promotional set will contain 311 pieces with the recommended age range at 16+. There will be no minifigures included. Since this is a promotional set, you can not purchase it directly from LEGO. The good news is that there will be 2 contests running concurrently in June. There will be one for North America and another one for the rest of the world excluding South Korea.

To enter either contest, LEGO VIP members will have have to make a LEGO DC Super Heroes purchase from the LEGO Brand stores between June 1-30. North American residents only will also be allowed an entry by emailing enterVIP@LEGO.com with their name and VIP number and the word Bat-Pod in the subject line.

LEGO Creator Ferris Wheel (10247) Box Art

After yesterday’s first look at LEGO Creator Ferris Wheel (10247), here’s an image of the front box art of the set. It’s a different angle of the set so you can make out more of the details. As pictured on the box, the LEGO Creator Expert set will be 2464 pieces and stands at 68cm tall & 38cm wide.

Besides the main ferris wheel, this set makes use of a new 6 stem flower piece to create the round trees. This piece was first introduced in a couple LEGO Elves sets. After seeing what you can do with it, this piece should be quite popular for outdoor scenes.

We should be getting the official announcement any day now because this set will be on sale starting next month. LEGO VIP members will get early access to it on May 13th while the general public can buy it on June 1st. It’s speculated that this set will retail for $199.99.
