Model background

Launch an assault from the sky to rescue Commissioner Gordon from Bane!

High above Gotham City, Batman™ spots Bane in the armored Tumbler chasing Police Commissioner Gordon. Bust through the road barricades in the Bane Tumbler with hidden dual flick missiles and flame exhaust. Then swoop down from the skies in The Bat and winch the commissioner to safety with the rescue rope before Bane reaches him! Includes 3 minifigures: Batman, Bane and Police Commissioner Gordon with assorted weapons.

Model Box

The box is moderately full… pretty much like all of these size for a LEGO set.
This is the front side.

And this is the back side of the box.

Manuals

The set comes with two small manuals.

Building experience

It is a pretty interesting experience to build this set. The Tumbler looks quite good and it is really solid. But perhaps the most interesting part is the Bat that it is quite more complex to build and has some interesting techniques to attach the engines to it.

Complete model

This is the complete model.

The Bat

It cames in black color ( no, it is not a very dark grey! ) and it is a really cool model with a few interesting techniques to build it. It features two big fans that works pretty much like engines and a windowed cockpit for your favorite superhero.

The Tumbler

Featuring a beige color, the Bane’s tumbler is really nice ( and as cool as the Batman’s one but still pretty cool ).

Minifigs
