Late in the evening, before the LEGO September novelties go on sale at midnight, we now have the first official images of the LEGO Batman 76240 Tumbler for you thanks to Amazon Japan! We want to introduce you to the new edition of the 2014 classic here in detail.
The pictures appeared a little early today on Amazon in Japan and the release month is already listed there: November 2021. It will probably be a few days before the set is listed in the LEGO online shop, because LEGO had the idea of our knowledge for a later date planned. But that shouldn’t bother us, because we don’t have to wait so much for the listing in the LEGO online shop this time either. The reason: Although the tumbler looks like an exclusive D2C set, the set should be released immediately available at every LEGO dealer – and therefore probably launch into the market very quickly with good discounts.
The set can now also be pre-ordered from JB Spielwaren, including one Free gift!

Comparison with the LEGO 76023 Batman Tumbler from 2014
The new LEGO Batman Tumbler can hardly stand for itself as a set, because its predecessor from 2014 was not only one of the most important sets from this time for many LEGO fans today, but has probably also ended many Dark Ages. A comparison of the two vehicles is therefore necessary. We can certainly only compare the two Batmobiles really well when LEGO has provided all the other pictures, but even so we can give you a certain impression with a slider:
What is particularly noticeable here is the other tires on the rear wheels. While the 2014 Tumbler still had four tires from the LEGO Technic 8110 Unimog (Tire 94.3 x 38 R), the new edition now uses four significantly larger tractor tires (107 x 44R Tractor) that were used for the first time on the LEGO Technic 42054 Class Xerion. The Tire 81.6 x 44 R, which was also used for the first time in the 2014 Tumbler, is used in the front of both the new and the old Tumbler.
But the two models also differ in other areas. We will draw a more precise comparison between the two sets as soon as we have more images of the new edition.
Poll: What do you think of the tumbler?
Now it’s your turn: What do you think of the LEGO Batman 76240 Tumbler? Do you like the set? And do you plan to buy the Dark Knight’s massive vehicle? We would be delighted if you would take part in our two surveys.
The presentation of the new LEGO Batman Tumbler came as a surprise today, LEGO certainly wanted a more coordinated presentation. But now, thanks to Amazon Japan, we have received the first pictures and a first impression of the new set. And even if the price has been raised on paper compared to its predecessor, the set should ultimately be significantly cheaper, as it should end up in the range of every retailer at the start of sales.
We’re counting on one Start of (discounted) pre-orders at the beginning of October and of course we will inform you about it here.
