The new, much anticipated LEGO Arkham Asylum Breakout is now available to purchase from the LEGO Store priced £129.99. The set contains over 1600 pieces, nearly double compared to the original set from 2006 and includes Batman, Robin, The Joker, The Penguin, Poison Ivy, Dr. Harleen Quinzel, Scarecrow and Guard minifigures.
We love the Gothic feel captured by LEGO in this set! The gates complete with the black angels that lead in to the Asylum look fantastic! On the inside there are prison cells including a special cell for Poison Ivy and the Mr. Freeze icy tower room.
Meet Laval, Eris, Cragger and Worriz from the Kingdom of Chima as they battle it out for the magical CHI – an energy source that provides the animal warriors and their vehicles special speed, strength and power!
