LEGO Announces Powered Up App-Controlled Batmobile

The LEGO Group announced the Powered Up Platform, a suite of new elements and apps, which introduce new ways to bring to LEGO sets to life seamlessly across its System of Play. Revealed today as part of the Powered Up platform, the LEGO Batman App-Controlled Batmobile, inspired by DC’s Caped Crusader, is a buildable LEGO Batmobile that is fully controllable by smart device. It will also incorporate light coding and programming later in 2018.

The LEGO Batman App-Controlled Batmobile, created for children 8 years of age and older, combines LEGO building and remote-control car play. It is the first codeable and programmable LEGO Batmobile that is fully controllable via smart device. Users can steer the Batmobile using one of two preset remote-control interfaces or personalize their experience through a customizable interface. With the interface unlocked, users move sliders, buttons and other elements to customize the remote control to their liking. Through a coding canvas that will be introduced later this year, users can code and re-code speed, direction, sound and duration to program various movements and stunts and create their own unique driving experiences.

The LEGO Batman App-Controlled Batmobile will launch August 1 with the suggested retail price of $99.99 and includes 321 pieces, two motors and a battery hub. The Powered Up App works on phones and tablets running iOS 8.0 and up or Android 5.0 and up.

Funko Cereal Coming In June

Funko Founder Michael Becker unveiled a new product line for Funko, which is cereal with mini-Pop figures included in the box. The line, which will be marketed through collectible store outlets as opposed to grocery stores, goes on sale in June 2018. As an added feature, the Elvira cereal, named after Elvira Mistress of the Dark, will turn black, and the Freddy Krueger cereal will turn red, when milk is added.

“One of the fun things is we are about to release our own line of cereal, with a mini-Pop inside,” Becker explained. “We got all the cool licenses like He-Man, Wonder Woman, Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Freddy Krueger and our own Freddy Funko. We start shipping to stores in June and we have the distribution set up and the product is pre-sold. It’s just one more of those feel-good Funko items.” He continued, “I used to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings while I was eating cereal. There are prizes in the cereal and it will sell for $7.99 a box. When you add milk to the Freddy Krueger cereal, it looks blood red. With the Beetlejuice cereal, when you add milk it looks like slime.”
