Lego DC Superhero Girls Batgirl Batjet Chase | Review

If you like the Lego DC Superhero Girls Collection you will be happy to know that Lego has released the new Batgirl™  Batjet Chase kit.  The Batgirl Chase Kit features a Batgirl figure along with the very cool Batjet Chase vehicle.  It also includes a Yellow Krypomite with an attack buggy in the same set.  The DC Super Hero Girls Batgirl™ Batjet Chase set (41230) is reasonably priced at $24.99 on the Lego website but can also be found online and at other retailers like Amazon.  This kit works well with the other sets in this collection.  I was extremely happy when I found out that the kind folks at Lego were sending me one for my kids to test out and enjoy.  We already own the "The Joker™Notorious Lowrider" and few of the other batman themed items, so this is an added bonus to our collection.
The set itself is made up 206 pieces which included stickers and a net.  There is one large sticker sheet for decorating the bat jet and two smaller stickers that are used to decorate

The DC Superhero Girls Batgirl™Batjet Chase kit pieces conveniently come separated into two bags.

One bag holds the Batjet pieces and the other bag holds the Batgirl, the small buggy pieces and the parts for the small yellow Krypomite character. This makes it a lot easier to keep the various pieces separated.
The easiest piece to assemble is the Yellow Krypomite.  This character adds a lot of fun to the collection, according the Lego website, the yellow Krypomite character's special powers are to instill fear into those it comes across. Personally, I find the entire line of Krypomite characters are really cute and easy to put together.  There are a total of 6 Krypotomite characters available for purchase on the Lego website. However,  this kit includes a tiny version of the yellow Krypomite sold in the Krypomite kits.

You can see how tiny the Krypotomite creature is next to the Batgirl figure.

I love that Lego has beautifully illustrated step by step directions on how to build each piece that makes it easy to assemble these kits in a short amount of time. After my daughter assembled the yellow Kryptomite, she assemble the attack buggy.

We found that the attack buggy is also easy to put together.

It only took my daughter a few minutes to assemble it.  We were really impressed by all the
details on this little piece, even the back view was interesting.

The next project was to make the Bat Girl™ Piece.
Lego Batgirl Assembly Instructions
Again, the instructions are so easy to follow that it took about 1 minute to assemble her. The details on the Batgirl™are amazing.

The Batjet Chase had the most parts and that did take a bit longer to assemble.

Again the directions are really straight forward so my daughter had it finished in around 15 to 20 minutes.

The step that took the longest was the positioning of the stickers.  The are curved and that made a little more challenging to place it without placing slightly off the correct location.

Once it was finished, we had a lot of fun playing with it.  The Batjet actually shoots a mesh out of the front end of the batjet by pushing the back knob (as in the picture below).

Once you press on the ejection button, the bat jet throws out a net that is used to capture the yellow Krypomite.

My daughters have always enjoyed their Lego sets.   We love attending Comic Con and other similar events.  I think it is wonderful that Lego has created sets that include the DC female heroes and villains.  We have started collecting the individual DC Mini Figures and this set will be fun to add to that collection.  So far we have purchased a few of the Lego Batman sets, the Lego Joker Notorious Lowrider and some of the individual blind packs to add to our collection.  Below is the Joker Notorious Lowrider and the Batgirl Batjet Chase so you can get an idea of the size comparison.  There are a lot more pieces in the Lego Joker Notorious Lowrider than the Lego Batgirl Batjet Chase.
You can see how well the different kits work well together.

Note:  My family thanks Lego for sending us this kit for our honest review and enjoyment. We really appreciate it and we are enjoying playing with it.  It is a great addition to the many Lego sets we have already purchased and assembled.
