I went ahead and pulled the trigger on getting all three of the Batman v. Superman sets. While I don't really have a lot of faith in the movie, I do like the Batmobile and Batwing designs. Don't really want to get "too deep" into the DC Comics sets - so I'll stick with just these for now, but that new Harley Quinn set does look nice, as does the classic 1960's Batcave set...  :-\

Been back-filling my Lego DC Comics collection now (kinda had a feeling I'd do that once I bought those three BvS sets) - here's what I've gotten so far:

Superman vs Power Armor Lex
Cosmic Boy Polybag
Batman: The Penguin Face off
Green Lantern vs. Sinestro
Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas
Black Manta Deep Sea Strike
Darkseid Invasion
Batboat Harbor Pursuit
Jokerland
Gotham City Cycle Chase
Batman vs. Catwoman Mighty Micro
Robin vs. Bane Mighty Micro
The Flash vs. Captain Cold Mighty Micro
Electro Suit Batman & Lego Batman Visual Dictionary

Bought and on their way:
The Joker Bumper Car Polybag
Superman: Battle of Smallville
Brainiac Attack
Batman Bat Signal
Lightning Lad (from the Target minifigure Cube)
Batzarro (from the Bizarro Justice League DVD)

I'm kicking myself that I got the Martian Manhunter Polybag a year or so ago at the Lego Store and then gave it away to a co-worker who has a son that is really into Legos, so I gotta grab that one off eBay at some point.

I'm going to hold off on getting the 1960s Batcave set for when the 1960s Mr Freeze polybag becomes available in a week or so.

And then I'll go on the steady progression of trying to grab one set a month until I'm caught up with everything from 2012 until now...  :-\

I hate it when Star Wars is a void wasteland of nothingness to get - I always find something else I'm interested in spending my money on, and lately, Lego seems like a great way to spend it....

The Mr Freeze polybag promotion started today both in stores and online. Spend $75 and you get the polybag for free. When I stopped by the nearest Lego store to me on the way home from work tonight, I was told by the clerk that they got enough polybags to last a few days at least, but he didn't think they would last to the end of the promotion (which I think is the 14th or 15th).

Finally got the time to finish building the 1960s Batcave yesterday. The build was fun and I really like the fact that they made it so you can configure the order of the structures based on your preference. The only part of the set I don't care for is the garage/helipad section. I think it would have been better if it were designed to fully store the Bat-mobile instead of either the front or back of the car sticking out.

To make this overall sub theme just about "perfect" I hope they have a Batgirl set planned - it would be fun to have a small section of her apartment that spins around to allow you to recreate her changing from Barbara to Batgirl - and she would definitely need her motorcycle.

I can't think of any major villain that they could put in the set - maybe King Tut or even Egghead just so they could have a minifigure based on a Vincent Price character, I dunno. It would be nice if they immortalized at least "created for the show" villain in minifigure form.

I also picked up these sets:
MoS Metropolis Showdown
MoS Black Zero Escape
Jor-el Polybag
Martian Manhunter Polybag
Defend the Batcave (Juniors set - mostly for the minifigures)
Joker Steamroller
DC superhero book w/Pirate Batman minifigure

Those will be it for a while until I've caught back up with Lego Star Wars - the Hoth set comes out at the end of the month, so I gotta plan for that big purchase. Plus I still don't have the unmasked Kylo wave, the Battle of Takodana set is coming, 6" Kmart Rey is coming and so is Walmart black series wave 4...

Found a reasonably priced eBay auction for four Batman sets from 2012:
6860: The Batcave
6863: Batwing Battle Over Gotham
6864: Batmobile & Two-Face Chase
6857: Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape

I also grabbed from the same seller the Batman Jetski Polybag...

So now from 2012, I'm left with the Constraction figures, the Catwoman set, two polybags and the convention mini-figure exclusives. Might go ahead and just finish off the "reasonable" aftermarket priced items from that year with the Catwoman set and the two polybags. I haven't pulled the trigger on any of the constraction figures (Marvel or DC) so I'll definitely hold off on those and with regards to old convention mini-figures, I still can't bring myself to pull the trigger on a $200+ minifigure purchase so those stay well out of reach for now...

Picked up the following sets recently...

10724: Batman & Superman vs. Lex Luthor (Juniors Set - bought it mostly for the Lex Minifigure)
6858: Catwoman Catcycle City Chase
10937: Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout

I'm eyeing up getting 76023: The Tumbler - just to finish off the "big" DC sets, might hold off on that just because I have all of the Star Wars summer sets to get, plus there are Marvel and DC Summer Sets coming soon... UGH
