Theme Analysis

The LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes theme is a bit of a mixed one, containing over 150 sets and delivering average annualised growth of 7% but there is quite a large variety of performance within that making this very much a set pickers theme for us here at Investabrick.

Comparable Set Analysis

We have taken a look at some of the larger Batman themed sets with LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes theme that have previously retired and we see a similar picture to the overall theme with average performance broadly in line with the 7% but there are some sets that outperform this average.

LEGO 10937 Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout is a good example of the average theme, having grown nearly 70% in nearly 10 years (6% annualised growth) whereas LEGO 76139 1989 Batmobile is massively outperforming the average having seen 77% growth in just over 2 years of retirement (29% annualised growth).%

Set Number Set Name Retired Date RRP Current Value Total Growth Annualised Growth
76139 1989 Batmobile December 2021 $250 $442 77% 29%
76023 The Tumbler December 2015 $200 $265 33% 3%
76161 1989 Batwing December 2022 $200 $229 15% 12%
76899 10937 Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout December 2014 $160 $269 68% 6%


For now, this is a pre-launch set with a high price tag and a likely 2 year+ shelf life ahead of it, so for us it is not an investment to consider for now. That said, it is one to go on our watchlist to monitor as it approaches its retirement and it definitely looks like a great set to build, especially for DC Comics Super Heroes fans.
