Okay, that`s a mouthfull, but the newest and updated Character Encyclopedia, this time for the DC range, has arrived and I finished reading it.
It`s like the usual encyclopedia`s, adding some fluff to basically a hero per page format.
In between, we get some of the vehicles from this Superhero line, both the older, known in Lego midsts as 'Batman I' line, as the restarted one from around 2010, the 'Batman II' range.
It comes with all the usual bells and whistles, like a timeline overview of all the sets, some interviews with designers, and it also includes the SDCC exclusive figures as well as the DK Books ones.
Talking exclusives, the one that came with the book is totally UBER. Buccaneer Batman, as seen in the latest DC Lego movie, is a truly gorgeous figure, and I found the captain for my next pirates ship I`ll be building for Brethren of the Brick Seas.
It`s another nice addition to a Legobrary, and the figure alone makes these books worth the 15 or so euro they tend to cost on release (and often go in promotion rather fast afterwards), so grab one for sure.
I still think it remains a shame they never did a Tolkien-esque Character Encyclopedia though...
