Our Lego project for 2020 – the 1989 Batmobile

I may be in my mid-40s but I still love Legos. The kids and I have worked on Lego projects on and off for a few years. Our last Lego set was Voltron in 2018. For some reason, we skipped last year. With the pandemic raging, I thought it would be fun to work on a project for the holiday season.

I’ve had my eye on a large Lego project, but which one to buy using our finite pool of money? I wanted something big, visually interesting, and a little challenging. I had in mind the 1989 Batmobile, because I have loved it since I was 13 years old. I also strongly considered the Tantive IV, a Star Destroyer, or the Bugatti Chiron. I kept an open mind. I was worried that the 1989 Batmobile would be discontinued and hard to find like the Lego Tumbler set from a few years ago. I’m still kicking myself over waiting too long.

Luke suggested today let’s decide when we get to the store. We walked in and looked around. After perusing the options, I walked up and stared at the Batmobile. It took about 5-6 seconds, and I knew it was the one.

This is gonna be awesome. I’m looking forward to it.
