Promobricks has revealed quite a listing at Toys R Us German online store. These seem to be linked to Bricktober based on the packaging which bears striking resemblance to the ones used in Bricktober 2016. The big difference is that the 2016 Bricktober versions looked like haphazardly matched minifigs but here we seem to have loads of unique prints on the torso, legs and arms.
At the time of writing, the actual Toys “R” US link seems to be dead but it’ll probably soon be back up again. It was sellling for 14.99 Euros and you could not order more than 1 piece. The top of the box seems to indicate that this is the 2nd of 4 boxes which reinforces the idea that this is tied to Bricktober. We wonder what the other 3 boxes will contain?
A GreenBack Bat
A Baby Blue Bat Rabbit (Previously released as a LED light)
A Bat Wizard
A Bat Roman Soldier
All but one of these figures were featured in the dual page spread on The Making of The Lego Batman Movie Book released by DK. Multiple other designs on this dual page spread were also released in the Collectible Minifigures, LEGO Dimensions Funpack and as a freebie in the DK Chaos in Gotham City book. Is LEGO going to use them all?
The other one looks to be inspired by another concept art which was also featured in the book where the colour scheme was changed.
