This morning LEGO revealed another supercar entry to the popular Speed Champions line. The McLaren 720S (set 75880) will be joining the likes of the Ford GT, Bugatti Chiron, and more when it’s available this June. The bright orange car also includes a car designer minifigure and a design desk for sketching out the cars of the future. We don’t have word yet on the price or part count, but it’s a safe bet it will be priced at $14.99 USD like the other standalone Speed Champions.

The LEGO Batman Movie opens today and we enjoyed it, though not without a few reservations (read our review). LEGO is naturally pulling out all the stops to advertise the film, and that includes giving away free Batman minifigures and now, revealing a brand new set. Today we get our first look at 70917 The Ultimate Batmobile, which is a huge vehicle that splits into four smaller vehicles: the Batmobile, Batwing, Bat-Tank, and Batcycle.
The Ultimate Batmobile will be available June 1 for $129.99 USD. It also includes a light-up Batsignal, and Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Polka-Dot Man on a flying disc, Alfred Pennyworth (in Batsuit), the Wicked Witch of the West, and two Flying Monkeys. We didn’t spot this vehicle in the movie, but let us know in the comments if you do!
