Beginning in April 2006, Lego Group will introduce six new Batman products featuring constructible play sets with strong vehicle focus, cool functionality, gadgets and a library of collectible mini-figures.

"Our experience shows that combining the right property with the construction play pattern is a formula for success, so we are thrilled to be working with Warner Bros.

These new construction toys will be supported with television, print and online advertising, Web content, Lego Club, targeted events, a model tour and retail promotions.
