70914 Bane’s Toxic Truck Attack Pre-Review!

Hello everybody, today I have my first pre-review of a LEGO Batman Movie set… it is 70914 Bane’s Toxic Truck Attack! This set will likely be £54.99, $49.99 in the US, $109.99 in New Zealand, and $89.99 in Australia. Let’s take a look at the figures, namely, Batman, Bane, and the Mutant Leader.

Batman is just the regular LEGO Batman Movie Batman. I believe this variant is the same one included with the Joker’s Balloon Escape, the Scuttler, Killer Croc Tail-Gator, and Arkham Asylum. He is armed with a Batarang.

Mutant Leader is completely new to LEGO. His comic book character seems rather violent so I’m surprised to see a LEGO version of him. He appears significantly less muscular than his comic book version:

Bane is a very, very nice-looking bigfig. Many have wanted a bigfig of Bane for a long time, and this version is very satisfying. I like the tubes indicating Venom flowing into his arms. lego-batman-villains
Compared to the movie version, this one seems pretty accurate.

If you look at the back you can see his Venom container. I like it! 👍🏼

There’s also this little build as a toxic chemical tank. If you press on the yellow 1×2 tile it will catapult out a trans yellow build.

There’s also the Whirly Bat build. I’m not a fan of it, as I think they should’ve put a bigger build for Batman. It’s actually based on a real Batman vehicle.

The final build is Bane’s vehicle. I like the big toxic container in the back, plus the huge Gatling gun. Bane’s childhood teddy bear on a flag near the front is a nice touch as well. There is space for Bane to stand in the back. There is suspension for the rear 4 wheels as well, using the same technique as Captain America vs. Hydra.


I think that this set is a pretty good set, thanks in no small part to the fabulous Bane bigfig. However, due to the bigfig, the price is rather high — the build looks rather small for a $49.99 USD set. Personally, I’d wait for a sale, maybe a 20% off sale. At that discount (or more) I’d recommend it.

But what do you think? Will you get this? Let me know in a comment below, and be sure to follow my blog for more cool LEGO stuff! See you in the next post!
