The Batcopter: The Chase for Scarecrow
Set 7786
By Lando da Pimp

The Batman LEGO line continues to impress me. The latest set is Batman's Batcopter. This is the last of the traditional Batman vehicles. However, I wonder how many sets are in the future? It seems LEGO is about to run out of characters and vehicles. Until that happens we can enjoy great sets like this one:

The 293 piece set 7786 contains both the Batcopter and Scarecrow Plane along with Batman and Scarecrow mini-figures for an all out air combat battle. The bi-plane is all decked out in "Scarecrow Decor." A sewn fabric design, similiar to his mask, is used on the the tail fin, and the plane uses the colors of the The Scarecrow. The plane being a vintage cropsprayer, allows the Scarecrow to release his fear gas from either side of the plane. Underneath the plane, is a release mechanism that allows for the fear gas bombs to be dropped.

Unlike the unique plane design, the Batcopter feels like a redress of a previous helicopter design. I can't pinpoint this for sure, but the design is very familiar. The copter is a bit more military looking, and something Batman probably wouldn't own. When I think of the Batcopter I think about the one from the Adam West television show. Up front is what appears to be a series of weapons. I would assume they aren't guns. Batman wouldn't equip his vehicles with them (Tim Burton should take notes). On the right are two smaller missles with a larger missle that you can launch on the left.

The mini-figures included are really nice. This is the first version of the Scarecrow. He is done very well. The mask is imprinted on the head piece. He comes with a hat and sickle. The Batman figure comes in the blue outfit similiar to the comic book version. What has been great is that each Batman mini-figure has been different for the sets.

Overall
A great Batman set, and a bargain at $30. I really liked the Scarecrow plane. It's a very solid plane. The Batcopter is nice, but as I stated earlier, it didn't feel "Bat Like." I wouldn't debate about picking this set up. If you like the previous Batman sets then you need the Scarecrow to add to your LEGO villian arsenal.
