Fans at select LEGO brand stores across the United States walked into their stores to a surprise yesterday. Nine stores across the United States were handing these out to the first customers that purchased The LEGO Movie 2 products at each location.
A fan over on Reddit, was lucky enough to snag this piece which came from the LEGO store in Paramus, NJ. No doubt this will turn out to be a fantastic collectible for the lucky fan that scored Batman! Who knows, maybe the person that got him isn’t a Batman fan and will list him on the secondary market (for the hardcore “got to have one of everything” Batman fans out there).

LEGO is a line of building toys manufactured by the Lego Group, a privately held company based in Denmark. The company’s flagship product, commonly referred to as “LEGO bricks,” consists of colorful interlocking plastic bricks and an accompanying array of gears, mini-figures, and various other parts. There are other LEGO pieces that can be assembled and connected in many ways to construct such objects as vehicles, buildings, and even working robots.
About The LEGO Movie 2:
The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part” reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are now facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than it can be rebuilt.
The battle to defeat the invaders and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman and their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a galaxy filled with fantastic planets, strange characters and catchy new songs. It will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.
