A little ironic this thread got bumped. I never was into legos as a kid. In fact, I was the kid like Emmit (lego movie - btw that movie is epic brilliance!) that would build the stupidest shit without instructions or patience. But, my 4 year old loves the lego movies and playing with legos. He's nowhere near a master builder nor understands that portion yet, we've only built junior lego pieces for him so far.
That said, the other day my wife bought him a real lego builder that he's been asking forever and I had a blast putting together my first lego 500+ piece lego. My kid lost patience quickly in the build but absolutely loves the finish product. Hopefully he'll take a liking to the build process soon cause I had fun building this (disclaimer: one or two pieces may be missing now cause I took this picture for this thread a day or two after my son was playing with it LOL). I give you my first build, the bat mobile

Edit: I just noticed the top hatch is missing where you put batsman and robin in the cockpit. Great feature of the bat mobile that my son loves where you can flip open the hatch and it flies off.
