Review: LEGO 6857 Super Heroes The Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape

Here is a look at the LEGO set #6857, Super Heroes The Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape. At $39.99 retail, this set delivers a lot of value, especially for a licensed set. You get five minifigs, all of main characters in the DC Batman universe. $39.99 is also a nice price point for kids – a big set, but not breaking the $50 barrier.

Here is what you get: the set, minifigs, accessories, manual and sticker sheet:

I don’t plan on keeping this set displayed, so I didn’t bother applying the stickers, though they are pretty cool:

Starting with the minifigs, we have Batman and Robin. As usual, nicely done. I am not a huge fan of cloth capes on minifigs, so I haven’t opened those up yet:

Back printing adds a nice level of detail:

Then we have the “bad guys.” The Riddler, Harley Quinn, and The Joker. Each looks great, and most of the figs have double-sided faces:

The joker’s hair is rather squared off. Some back printing as well:

The funhouse. Without the stickers it looks much less impressive:

The little car that rides on the tracks – really well done:

A side view, showing how far out the rails extend:

The main structure has a lot of gimmicks – the hammer that swings down, the floor that moves, a trap door and other features:

It’s not especially deep, but it definitely gets the job done. I am glad they kept it functional and basic in order to keep it under $40:

All in all, a great value for the money!
