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:
A look at the setup:
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:
On the rails:
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:
Not much to see here:
All in all, a great value for the money!
