LEGO DC 76271 Batman: The Animated Series Gotham City Rumoured For April 2024

The first LEGO DC D2C for many, many years released earlier last year but the theme seems to be on the turn with another D2C coming in 2024. 76252 Batcave - Shadow Box released on 8th June 2023 becoming the biggest LEGO DC set of all time with 3,981 pieces retailing for $399.99. However, in 2024 the theme will see a brand new 18+ D2C set debut of 76271 Batman: The Animated Series Gotham City.

The Batman-themed set, once it releases on 1st April 2024, will be the biggest LEGO DC set of all time with 4,208 pieces. At a much more reasonable price of $299.99, the 18+ set won't become the most expensive LEGO DC set mainly due to its LEGO Art-like features. 76271 is basically a 3D-style LEGO Art set showcasing the beautiful yet crime-ridden Gotham City at night in brick-built LEGO form.

Like a LEGO Art set, the 30-inch long 18+ model can be mounted to the wall. 15 panels can then be removed to reveal hidden features and places inside of Gotham City. These include Wayne Manor, the Batcave, Arkham Asylum and whatever mischievous things the Villians of Gotham may be up to.

All of this is happening at night so we get a beautiful skyline with a red sky and black clouds behind the tall buildings and towers of Gotham. In the beautiful night sky, there is a moon, police blimps, a bat signal and the batwing. You may even be able to spot a small brick-built version of Jokerland which even includes a Joker-themed Ferris Wheel.

Right at the front of the display model, there's the word Gotham in brick-built letters but these can easily be removed if preferred. There's also little Batwing and Batmobile builds which can be displayed alongside the set. These Batman builds probably aren't compatible with the four Minifigures included in the set of Batman, The Joker, Harley Quinn and Catwoman as these will be displayed next to the brick-built skyline of Gotham.
