The diligent readers over on Eurobricks have found high-res renders of the new Batman minifigs.

Riddler and Bane:
Very cool. I can’t wait for Bane in particular.
Martin Jaspers combines classic Castle minifigs and a non-production green helmet for a great “Practical Joke”:
I know my brother’s going to resent me for saying this, but first-born children tend to get all the photographic attention — at least until the second kid comes along.

Oh, and that’s why you won’t be seeing much of me around here for a couple of days. ;-)
