5.0 out of 5 stars Lego Dynamic Duo Funhouse
The Joker and Harley Quinn (with a little help from The Riddler) trap Robin at their deadly Funhouse, the set is a bit small when you look at it, but when you actually look and see the detail and different traps etc it's well worth the price! This is the only set from the Super Heroes range that include Harley Quinn and The Ridder so it's collectable and also fantastic if...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Killing Joke
I like Lego. And I like Batman. So hooray for these new DC Superhero sets which trott out Lego's spin on Batman again. Batman originally popped up in Lego form back in 2007 in a range of sets not too dissimilar to those that are out now. As with all of Lego's revisitations to a familiar theme, there's an attempt to refresh familiar sets and introduce some new ones, like...

The Joker and Harley Quinn (with a little help from The Riddler) trap Robin at their deadly Funhouse, the set is a bit small when you look at it, but when you actually look and see the detail and different traps etc it's well worth the price! This is the only set from the Super Heroes range that include Harley Quinn and The Ridder so it's collectable and also fantastic if any of these is your fave character. One thing to remember that in a few years time these will be very hard to get hold of as these sets won't be made forever so buy it now instead of paying 3/4 times the RRP on eBay!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 30 Dec 2013
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Super Heroes: Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape Set 6857 (Toy)
This set rocks. It has loads of traps such as a trapdoor that drops into a barrel of fish. Harley Quinn is seen riding the rolllecoaster of doom but it can also be used to take down Batman. The Riddler has a bowler hat and a crowbar that is supposed to be his question mark staff and Harley has a hammer and is wearing her classic jester costume. Robin is wearing his tribute to superboy costume whereas Batman wears his old blue suit. The Joker is wearing his usual clothes and is sporting the morden Joker harpiece rathher than the old vampire based piece. It is a good set that would be made better if Lego had given the Riddler an actuall staff and if it had more traps but overall well worth its price.

This review is from: LEGO Super Heroes: Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape Set 6857 (Toy)
Another Christmas present. Our son was delighted with this. Took couple of hours to make, son loved this. He has played with this non stop, only downside is very expensive, but the mini figures are great.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Killing Joke, 22 Jan 2012

This review is from: LEGO Super Heroes: Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape Set 6857 (Toy)
I like Lego. And I like Batman. So hooray for these new DC Superhero sets which trott out Lego's spin on Batman again. Batman originally popped up in Lego form back in 2007 in a range of sets not too dissimilar to those that are out now. As with all of Lego's revisitations to a familiar theme, there's an attempt to refresh familiar sets and introduce some new ones, like this fun playset.

The Joker finds a suitable home in this rather deadly funhouse, a recurrent home from home for the clown prince of crime. The funhouse itself is reminisicent of one of those flat pack, slightly unsafe travelling funfair attractions. Its wide and long, but doesn't have much depth. To the side, a flight of steps lead to the landing. Pulling a lever causes a trapdoor to open plummeting any hapless heroes to the ground. If you make it across there, there's a wobbly floor to make your way across - but beware the huge hammer! These clever little lever operated features are great, but my favourite has to be launching the small cart down the run of track and through the pannelled gates. The Joker is adided in his capture of Robin - whom is handcuffed and dangled from a crane (that works!)above an excitable fish - by the deluded and obssessed Harley Quinn as well as The Riddler - whom has his own Riddle Booth (yeah, i couldn't think of a better name for that). Riding to Robin's rescue is Batman, with a costume derived from the comic books of the 1970s. Batman comes with his trusty Batarang and rides a bulky looking bike.

The minifigures themselves are one of the strongest selling points of the set, super cute renditions of familiar icons with some great detailing. From Robin's panicked face (reversable with a more determined looking grimmace) to the Riddler's question mark apparel, the designers have really nailed batman and his rogues gallery. This set is also very colourful and features some clever build patterns. There's also a free comic book included, which isn't as exciting as it sounds, being simply a photoshopped picture adventure lacking any dialogue. A proper free Batman comic would have been a better bet, or even a proper strip like in the Lego Club Magazine, but as a bonus feature it works well enough to inspire young minds with their own adventures.

Are there any down sides to the set? Well, yes. This being a licensed product, there is a premium to pay and there is a slightly underwhelming feeling of 'is that it?' once you've assembled it, but frankly even at these prices this latest run of Lego Batman are going to be cheaper than trying to track down the original sets on the secondary market. The other thing to consider with Lego these days is that unlike most (all?) other toy manufacturers, you can purchase these products knowing that the workers whom produce these kits in more deprived areas of the world are getting a fair deal, thanks to Lego opening their own factories in areas such as China and Mexico, allowing them greater control over pay and conditions, something for which I commend Lego group on doing. Now, if only everyone else would follow suit...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of fun, 29 Dec 2013

This review is from: LEGO Super Heroes: Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape Set 6857 (Toy)
I got this for my son for Christmas, as the cheaper alternative to Arkham Asylum. Lego never disappoints took a good few hours to build but it's great with all it's trap doors and traps to keep young imaginations going. Came in good time well packed.

This review is from: LEGO Super Heroes: Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape Set 6857 (Toy)
It was bought from a wish list, so it was "just what my friend wanted". Shows the benefit of having a wish list. The box set is what it says. Isn't too challenging for the older fan but is well packaged and presented

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot for your money, better be a collectors item to make it worth the outlay., 10 Dec 2013

This review is from: LEGO Super Heroes: Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape Set 6857 (Toy)
Desired pressie for grandchild.
As with most 'sought after' products it comes at a premium.
Not a lot in the box and will take some adult 'interference' to ensure it all stays intact to make it a collectable item even if it achieves collector status in the future. Otherwise, it's just lego.

My 5 years old granddaughter loved this although she needed a lot of help to assemble it. Probably better suited to an older child.

This remake of the 7783 batcave is brill with some great minis anyone who has owned the old batcave wont be too supprised with this but as the old sets can sell from 200 used - 600 new id get one now and stash it away for 4 years.

Dont miss out on this set while it still floats around the 60 quid mark
