Watch the build of this Lego set in time lapse from beginning to end. Lots of moving parts in this set. It even comes with Alfred, Bruce Wayne, Batman, and Penguin mini-figures. You also get 3 extra Bat-suits for Bruce Wayne.
The Bat-boat fires missiles and bombs. It also has a lift canopy so you can seat characters behind the wheel. The Penguin’s Duck & Cover vehicle rolls smoothly and also has some firing missiles. The propeller in the back spins. Oh yeah, almost forgot about the two heavily armed little penguins that come with it.

Paul Reubens aka Pee Wee Herman is Penguin’s Dad on Gotham
Gotham is of course located in Gotham city. It is centered around the life of a younger Jim Gordon before he became commissioner. Bruce Wayne is in his teens, still in school, and has not become Batman yet.
You are introduced to many of the characters that will become villains in the future. Paul Reubens of Pee Wee Herman fame will be reprising his role as Penguins father from the movies.
Gotham is an American crime-drama television series developed by Bruno Heller. It is based on characters appearing in and published by DC Comics in the Batman franchise. The primary characters are James Gordon and Bruce Wayne.
The series stars Ben McKenzie as the young Gordon. As originally conceived the series would have served as a straightforward story of Gordon’s early days on the Gotham City Police Department. The idea evolved not only to include the Wayne character, but also to tell the origin stories of several Batman villains including the Penguin, the Riddler, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, the Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, Hugo Strange, and the Joker.
A new recruit in the Gotham City Police Department named James Gordon is paired with veteran detective Harvey Bullock to solve one of Gotham City’s highest-profile cases. The murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne.
During his investigation, Gordon meets the Waynes’ son Bruce who is now in the care of his butler Alfred Pennyworth. Meeting the younger Wayne further compels Gordon to catch the mysterious killer.
Along the way, Gordon becomes involved with Gotham’s Mafia families and associates including gangster Fish Mooney, Don Carmine Falcone, and Don Salvatore Maroni. Eventually Gordon is forced to form an unlikely friendship with Bruce. This relationship will help shape the boy’s future in becoming Batman.
In the second season, Gordon deals with the criminal activities that are secretly orchestrated by Theo Galavan and his sister Tabitha. Their scheme is part of a plot to run Gotham City and get revenge on the Wayne Family by targeting Bruce Wayne.
In the early days of Gotham City Celestine Wayne, one of the most sought after debutantes, was promised to a scion of the Elliott family. She was in love with someone else, Caleb Dumas.
One night the Wayne men found her with Dumas. Afraid, Celestine lied and told them that Caleb had forced himself on her. Celestine’s brother, Jonathan Wayne, then used an ornate knife to sever Caleb’s right hand.
This led to the Dumas family’s ostracism and financial ruin by the powerful Wayne family. Many members of the Dumas family fled to Europe to seek haven within a religious sect formed by their family’s patron saint. The religious sect was known as the Order of Saint Dumas.
Those of the Dumas family who remained in Gotham changed their surname to Galavan, thus Theo and Tabitha are Dumas descendants. Theo concocted a convoluted revenge plot he believes will redeem his family’s name.
