The Joker Manor and the Future of LEGO Roller Coasters

Today in LEGO news, we’ve got yet another “The LEGO Batman Movie” set reveal.  This new set features the jokerized Wayne Manor set piece from last year’s LEGO Batman Movie.   If you are getting tired of this theme, you’re not alone!  We’re deep into the marketing cycle for “The LEGO Ninjago Movie” that has just been released, so maybe you are asking yourself – “But why though?!?”  Us too!  However, we’ve noticed that there is a lot about this new set worthy of discussion.  So, let’s have a look at this 3,444 piece behemoth of a set, shall we?

Front side of Lego Set # 70922 Joker Manor

First, the bad news – there are a lot of new and exclusive (at the moment) parts, pieces and minifigures in this box.  With a price tag of $269.99 for the set, buying the minifigs out of the box is going to cost you on the secondary market.  Disco Batman, Disco The Joker, Disco Batgirl and Disco Robin are all brand new iterations for these popular characters, that you can only acquire through this set.  This set also features Robin and Alfred in brand new battle suits – Classic 1960’s Batman for Alfred, and Nightwing for Robin.

Beyond minifigures, there are a lot of easter eggs in this set that we will discuss over on our instagram page.  For now, what we were most interested in is the roller coaster that encapsulates Joker Manor.

Backside of Lego Set # 70922 Joker Manor

 

The coaster in this set is there to carry this three car roller coaster train.  Both the primary train piece, and each bit of track appear to be new molds!  The roller coast track has curves for corner turns, inclines, and also downward slopes.  No, sorry – no vertical loops (don’t be greedy!).  From what we can identify in the image above, there are to be several new track elements:

  • a 90 degree curve, about 16 studs wide
  • a simple ramp track, about 16 studs wide
  • 8 wide straight track
  • 2 Steep Ramp sections, one to go up, one to go down, each appearing to be 16 studs in length.

 

Coaster Feature of Lego Set # 70922 Joker Manor

Of course, this isn’t the first coaster to be released by LEGO.  Last year the Friends theme park lineup featured a roller coaster, but that set came with a track loop comprised of existing narrow gauge track, in a new color (medium azure).  The Joker Manor set is launching a new track type!

This isn’t even a fresh concept, as coasters have been created by hardworking fans for years.  We’ve seen technic style ball contraptions, flex tube track set ups, and even this amazing LEGO System track set up by Ryan, TheBrickMan over on flickr.

 

Corporate Roller Coaster

 

So, speculation time – is a fully realized Creator themed LEGO Roller Coaster on the horizon?  This would be great news for any LEGO City fan that has a theme park in their set up!  There are custom kits available, of course – but those can be prohibitively expensive.  Not that this set is a giveaway by any means…  What do you think?  With these new roller coaster parts – new track, and the cars are custom made, with built in wheels, and given that there is a creator expert mixer, carousel, and ferris wheel, does this mean there is a LEGO rollercoaster coming next year?

Let’s wait and see – in the meantime we eagerly await seeing how you all will figure out how to motorize this new coaster set up.
