Lex Luthor’s mech is one of the most popular LEGO builds in the DC Heroes line, if not the entire LEGO line: It’s a fun challenge for kids to build, especially with articulated limbs that hold their pose without collapsing. New mini figures round out the set – including Batman with jetpack, Firestorm, Wonder Woman, and more.
Younger kids will need help from parents to build this kit. Tiny stud shooter projectiles are just begging to be lost.
Compatible with other LEGO construction sets. A fun build for kids to teens, with just under 1,000 pieces, 6 mini figures from the Justice League movie, along with a large Steppenwolf figure. Batmobile fits the Flying Fox cargo bay perfectly.
Flying Fox only fits 2 of the mini figures. Steppenwolf figure could use more detail.
The mini figures are a top draw for this LEGO set, with Lobo, Superman, and adult Krypto included. Kryptonite prison has unique “explode” feature to break out Superman. Easy and fast to build.
Small, limited build with just 1 clear play setup, although the set is compatible with other DC Heroes sets.
Collectors love the Reverse Flash and Killer Frost mini figures included in this set. CyborgCopter’s guns can be carried by Cyborg figure. A good transitional build for kids moving up from LEGO Juniors, with 271 pieces.
Helicopter’s net doesn’t latch well or shoot well.
With Batman, Batwoman, and the Batjet, along with villain OMAC and his satellite (featuring a light-up “eye” brick), what’s not to like? Batjet is highly detailed for its size. Batteries are included for satellite eye. Great to display and fun to play with. Perhaps best of all, no stickers to deal with.
Batman’s cape tends to bunch up at the neck. Kids younger than 7 may need help building.

Though it often seems to rely heavily on the Batman character, the LEGO DC Super Heroes line sports several build sets across a generous price range, which makes it one of the most accessible, and collectible, LEGO lines on the market. Sets feature unique mini figures and at least two vehicle builds, all of which are compatible with other LEGO construction sets – so Batman can tackle pirates and spacemen, too, if that’s what a player wants to do. While some of the sets are plagued with stickers that stand in for tinier details, at least one is completely sticker-free and heavy on details – without climbing out of a reasonable price range. Younger kids transitioning from the Junior series to “regular” construction sets will likely be fascinated by the imaginative vehicles and familiar superheroes that are hallmarks of these sets.
