*The minifigures are all stellar. Robin, Dr. Quinzel, Batman, Joker, and Poison Ivy all feature secondary expressions on the back of their heads. Dr. Quinzel might be my favorite but the prison suit Joker and Scarecrow are all fantastic as well. Lots of neat little accessories, too. Handcuffs, batarangs, a staff for Robin, a fish and umbrella for Penguin, and a jester's cap for Dr. Quinzel round out a nice assortment of accessories.
*The prisoner transport truck is a fantastic little vehicle. It is well designed and includes a transport cage for the Joker (think the beginning of the Arkham Asylum video game or the Silence of the Lambs).
*The play features are well designed and not at all intrusive. A row of computer monitors spins around to reveal Dr. Harleen Quinzel's shrine to the Joker, featuring little cans of makeup and her Harley Quinn hat. Prison cell doors all open and close to lock up Batman's deadliest foes. A rope (looks like it was made out of bed sheets) can be attached to the floor so villains can escape through the broken window.
*Ummm... I wish it came with more villains, especially since there are monitors showing Two-Face and a special cell for Mr. Freeze. Other than that, no complaints! Of course, those two guys come with other sets, so I've now purchased them and added to my collection.
