As the DVD release of the LEGO Batman film is only a few weeks away, I thought it was a good time to post up a review of one of its most impressive tie-in sets. If you’ve seen the movie, you probably remember the Scuttler. This mecha joins the likes of the Batwing and Batmobile in Batman’s arsenal of vehicles, but stands out from the rest in that it seems to be intelligent, following Batman’s commands in a dog-like manner.
The Scuttler kit boasts extendable front legs, two cockpits, a net launcher and six stud shooters. It also comes with six minifigures – Batman, Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, Commissioner Gordon, the Joker and Poison Ivy. The assorted accessories that come with the set include batarangs, a jet pack, the Joker’s “bang” gun and Ivy’s vine monster.
