Pow! Zap! LEGO! 50 years after the Adam West Batman TV show debuted on Jan. 12, 1966, the mini-brick toy company is offering fans the chance to go back to the Batcave, brick by brick.

Hitting shelves March 1, the LEGO Batman Classic TV Series Batcave is a 2,526-piece set that brings, not just the Dynamic Duo’s HQ to life, but also Wayne Manor, the Batmobile, Batcycle, and the Batcopter to life in pretty vibrant detail. Retailing for $269.99, the set also will feature nine all-new mini-figures, including Batman, Robin, Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Alfred Pennyworth, The Joker, Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler.

LEGO has had prior success with their DC Super Heroes line, which has come to incorporate video games and movies. And while there have been a lot of pretty great Batman '66 toys and merchandise hitting the market in the last few years, the brand feels like an appropriate whimsical fit for the beloved camp TV show. Among the features fans of the show can look forward to include the Shakespeare bust in Bruce's study, the Batphone, sliding bookcase, and two Batpoles. In the cave portion, the Bat Lab will sport a Batcomputer, Bat-gadgets, and the Batcave entrance for the Batmobile. Speaking of the Batmobile, it will have stud shooters, a Batphone,  Batphone, an opening trunk, and dual exhaust and sign stickers. And yes, there will of course be Batarangs, rope, a grappling hook and Bat-handcuffs in the set.
