LEGO Batman Movie: The Batwing set review! 70916

This is a textbook example of the evolution of LEGO's design standards.  Just a decade ago, a flying craft of roughly this wingspan would have had 400-500 parts, a somewhat janky action/transformation feature and questionable structural stability.  Today we get 1,000+ pieces that interlock on multiple axes in a dense miniature juggernaut with generous greebling and many studless surfaces.  To me it's a clear cut case of a relentless dedication to maximizing quality while negotiating immovable economic realities.
