Review: LEGO Batman: The Penguin Face Off

If you're looking for a fun, simple, LEGO set than you honestly can't go wrong with LEGO Superheroes 76010 Batman: The Penguin Face Off
Now this probably looks like a lot of little pieces, but it's really not. This set can be built in less than 15 minutes; probably less if you don't have issues with the torpedo installation as we did.
(Honestly this as far as this torpedo will go)

When it comes to Mini Figures, LEGO never disappoints; well normally. The Batman mini figure is top notch; great detail, mobility, a true mini figure. The Penguin mini figure on the other hand is a different story. The detail is there, however Penguin's legs are a solid immobile piece, and when you add his umbrella and remote, he falls over! Do enjoy the fact that they did make sure he was at least shorter than Batman.
This is a shot of Batman's Scuba Vehicle completed; note that the torpedoes are to be launched by flicking the back end (however with our particular set, this ain't happening because those things are jammed in there good).
But on the plus side, Batman looks pretty awesome on it.
Who doesn't love the Duck Boat? And again, so quick and easy to build (also has working flick torpedoes).
Duck Boat also allows for a place to stand Penguin with the umbrella and remote in tow.
Additional building pieces allow for you to build two of Penguin's infamous dynamite packing penguins and a small little snow cap with diamond. Also included in the set is a spear gun for Batman's use.
For an overall score, we'd give this set a 4 out of 5. A wonderful addition to any LEGO Batman collection.
