First, about the book. I had zero expectations from this book as my intention was to get the minifigure but to my surprise, the book turned out to be nice! I’m not saying this because I’m a LEGO fan and a DC comics fan; I’m saying this because the book is very colorful and beautiful, every page of it. Hard-core LEGO (and DC) fans would love the information about a LOT of LEGO DC sets and characters. This book is a very good way for LEGO to attract new customers and make the old ones more interested! Though this book is called “DC Comics Encyclopedia” , it should be called “Batman Encyclopedia” because 80% of the book is about Batman and characters from the Bat-Universe. It’s really sad that LEGO completely ignores ALL DC characters except Batman. This is one of the reasons I get angry with LEGO. Anyway, just a personal opinion.
Now about the best part of this book. The free minifigure! The Pirate Batman looks fantastic! And there are quite a few unique things about him. Firstly, the minifigure itself is exclusive; available only with this book. Also, as per the official description about this minifigure, the chinless cowl is first time used in blue color and this minfigure is the only Batman minifigure to have a printed logo on the back. If you are LEGO and/or Batman fan, you will love this minfigure! If you are a LEGO fan living in India, you know that a LEGO minifigure, sold separately is very expensive here. So, that way, the current price is very decent to get a fantastic minifigure.
To wrap up, though it’s a nice book, it’s worth buying ONLY for the free minifigure.

That's right, this is a rare, exclusive Batman minifigure for only £4.00 and it comes with a great book! The figure alone is selling for anything up to £10.00 on ebay, so this is a great bargain.
The book is interesting (even for an Adult Fan Of Lego or AFOL) and is highly visual with lots of great quality, large images (so ideal for younger fans).
The minifigure is great. Pirate Batman's suit is closer to what is seen in the original comics, animated series and Jim Lee Batman; that iconic Blue and Grey. Pirate Batman comes with a sword for extra swash-buckle-yness and a mace which I am unsure of... did pirates use Maces?
Anyway, an absolute steal for £4 and a easy way to get a great collectible Batman Minifigure!
You just cannot go wrong with the quality of these books.
Best of all it also comes with a BATMAN Lego figure, so how can you complain about that, all for a fiver!
Looking through the book, there has been a few surprises, that we didn't even know had existed. My Son is a "Batman" LEGO fan, so we know have a couple of additional sets and figures to start looking out for at Toy Swop Meets.
AMAZONINGLY Amazon at its best!
