Joker Manor from The Lego Batman set Lego

Coming off the bewildering spectacle of Lego’s 7,541 piece Millennium Falcon from its Star Wars collection, a new monumental set has captured people’s attention.

Inspired by The Lego Batman Movie, Lego has created a miniature replica of the Joker’s Manor. The Manor takes it zany art direction cues from the version of the Joker seen in The Batman Movie. There’s a purple track that loops around glowing directional arrows and towers adorned with angry, red bricks. Lego’s version of the manor is ostentatious and busy, much like the way it was depicted in the actual film.

The only negative aspect of the set that pops out immediately is the Joker figure that comes with it, seen above. The Joker is dressed in the white outfit that appears during the credits sequence, and it’s just as dastardly to look at here as it was then. It’s an unnerving depiction of Gotham’s manic clown but, credit where it’s deserved, Lego does a fantastic job of matching the film’s look.

The set collects 10 different figures: the Joker (above), Harley Quinn, Batman, Barbara Gordon, Nightwing, Alfred Pennyworth, Disco Batman, Disco Joker, Disco Batgirl and Disco Robin. There are 3,444 pieces in total and the set will be sold for $269.99.

The set will be released on Nov. 24.
