Entertainment Weekly has the first shots of two upcoming sets for the LEGO Batman movie that's due to hit theatres next year. Yesterday we got our first look at the movie's minifig versions of Robin and the Joker, but these sets reveal other characters that will be appearing in the film, plus Batman's latest ride.

What's your favourite Batmobile? They all have their own charm, don't they? The Tumbler was brute force bicep flexing whilst kissing bad arse. The 60's Batmobile was fanciful and fun and totally goofy but cool in all the right ways. But my favourite is probably the Batmobile from the Tim Burton movies. It's slick and mysterious and what I think of when I think of the Batmobile.

Few of us have the financial resources to build a Batmobile that does everything the ones in the movies can do. Or even a full-scale replica that just drives, for that matter. But if you can scrape together a thousand bucks, you can easily get your hands on this 1:12-scale remote control Tumbler toy that includes a tiny built-in camera that makes you feel like you're sitting in the cockpit.

In recent years actors like Michael Keaton and Christian Bale have laid claim to the Batman character in movies, but your parents (or grandparents) are probably more familiar with Adam West's take on the superhero from the campy 1960s TV series. Which means that Mattel's gigantic version of the George Barris-designed 1966 Batmobile will appeal to toy collectors from any age group — even those enjoying retirement.

We've all got a soft spot for the Tumbler that Batman drove in the Christopher Nolan films, even the Batmobile from Tim Burton's take on the caped crusader was memorable. But nothing will ever top the sleek, art deco-inspired Batmobile from Batman: The Animated Series that many of us remember from our childhoods. So we're eternally grateful to DC Collectibles for bringing it back as a 60cm long masterpiece complete with working lights, steering and room for two 15cm figures.

If you've succumbed to the lure of the monstrous iPhone 6, you've already decided that a compact, pocket-friendly smartphone isn't for you. So when it comes to protecting your giant investment, why not just go all out and wrap it in this impressive case that's a near-perfect replica of the Batmobile from Tim Burton's Batman films.

Toys: At first you'll probably be a little disappointed to learn that this incredibly-detailed 29-inch long model of the Batmobile used in the Tim Burton-era Batman films isn't fully remote control — you can't drive or steer it. But while it sits there looking beautiful, you can remotely deploy its pop-up machine guns, blast smoke from its afterburner, and trigger various accent lighting and sound effects, which is admittedly still pretty cool.
