To celebrate the upcoming release of The Lego Batman Movie, something huge has come to London’s South Bank, with Batman’s own Batarang being installed at Observation Point by the River Thames for two days.
The installation is the latest piece of genius marketing, consisting of a staggering 35,000 Lego pieces and standing at an impressive 3 metres tall. Lego design company Bright Bricks are the company behind the ambitious build and its founder Duncan Titmarsh had this to say.
“Creating this groundbreaking installation has been a real passion project for us at Bright Bricks and is one of our most dynamic creations yet. Everyone is hugely excited by The LEGO Batman Movie, and what better way for it to make an almighty impact than by throwing a giant LEGO brick Batarang across The Thames! It’s been fantastic to see everyone’s reaction to it, particularly up close when the detail of the 35,000 LEGO bricks really comes to life.”
The Lego Batman Movie is out this Friday and you can read our four-star review here.
The installation is live between 8am Wednesday 8th February to 8pm Thursday 9th February at Observation Point, Southbank, 58–72 Upper Ground, Gabriel’s Wharf, London, SE1 9LT. It is free to visit.
