FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 9

I was at Toys R Us and saw this polybag for $5, so I had to buy a few.  I see this set as both a good investment and a cheap way to get the awesome Robin minifigure for your collection. 

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 6

This set doesn't really have exclusive pieces, but Robin is a great minifigure which sells for $7.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 8

For a small set, this one has good play value. The motorcycle is fun to push around, and has a sturdy construction.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

Amazing value here. Robin alone is worth $2 more than the whole set, and the motorcycle just sweetens the pot.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

Batman is an incredibly popular theme, and a solid investment theme. These polybags won't be on the shelves for long!

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 9

Originally, I think these sets were only available in the UK. However, they were later released at Toys R Us, where I got mine. This exclusivity should keep the set from depreciating much while it is still in stores.

PACKAGING | Score: 8

Just a regular Lego polybag here.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 8

Batman is a historically good performer, so I expect the set to do well in the aftermarket. Obviously, it would have done much better if it hadn't been put in TRU, but then I wouldn't have gotten mine! Buy this set if you can find it!

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 9

Great display set for the size. Robin is a great standalone minifigure.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 9

Robin and Redbird cycle is one of the best polybags I've seen. it has a great, fairly rare minifigure, and a cool little motorcycle with good playability. I think that this set will be a good, if not breakaway investment option, and would certainly buy a few of these if you have a chance to buy any.
