A nice book…but worth ONLY for the free minifigure!
Reviewed in India on 20 December 2016
Currently, I’m into LEGO ONLY for minifigures and that’s the reason I bought this book. The free minifigure with this book, is awesome!
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.
