I know I'm brand new to this group, but I thought I'd post this topic as I somehow missed the boat on grabbing sets of Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and Bane. I'm checking all non-chain toy stores but so far no luck.

All these sets are quite rare to find now as they've been discontinued, ebay is your best bet but be prepared to pay more than double the recommended retail price for them.

The Tumbler and Joker Ice Cream Van set is 280 on Amazon market place. This set originally sold for 40. It looks a good set but there's no way it's worth that much.

Considering that everything becomes far more expensive than its original price for Batman sets, I'm thinking that I could buy all the 2012 Batman sets. I'm expecting these sets to come due to the new movie, The Dark Knight Rises.

That will be cool if Lego bring out new Batman sets next year but it might not happen because of the license agreement with Warner Bros.
As I was so disgusted by the extortionate prices for the old sets I actually wrote to Lego to ask why the Batman series had been discontinued. I stated the prices being charged by private vendors and said that there was obvious demand for the Batman products so why can't Lego re-release the sets.
They told me that Lego no longer had the license with Warner Bros to produce any Warner Bros endorsed toys and it wasn't likely to be renewed.
This will be a big shame if Lego don't get the license again and it goes to Megabloks instead, like the Spiderman series Aghhh!
Maybe it's time to petition Lego to go for it.

Yeah, same thing happened to me: I asked why the high prices? I don't mean to PO anybody, but I'm kind of glad now that I bought the batwing and The batboat, and the catwoman mini chase set when I did. I went on e-bay, and apparently the b-wing is close to 400 dollars unopened.Too bad I opened mine. Oh well *sigh*. At least I'll have the memories. Ummm, I guess if anybody wants to buy a batman (original) minifigure, I'll have a bricklinks up soon. But it is the batman similar to the thumbnail for our group. I guess this weekend I should watch my batman films and build a bignette in dedication: anybody want to join, you know, a bit of collaborative work. Also, yeah, I really hope that megabloks does NOT obtain a license, that would kill me. Spiderman already got ruined, and I don't want another great hero to fall into the evil hands of MEGA (TM); hey maybe that would make a good vignette!

LEGO can gain the Warno Bros. license back anytime, don't worry, it won't fall down to MEGABLOKS.



Phew, that's a relief.

Hi. I found out if you want a rare set, you should get those minifigures separately. Come to think of it, Its not worth it to buy the set sealed. You can get the instructions at lego.com. Just get some bricks from your own collection, some from BrickLink and as I said, the minifigs separately.
Err Lego Lord, if there is a collaborative project, can I be in it too?
Thank you.

I seriously doubt the 2012 DC "batman" sets will ever exceed retail price, after all, they are terrible! The original 2006-2008 sets were infinitely better (Just saying!).
