A keen eyed reader sent this to The Brick Fan earlier today which shows us a flattened McDonalds Happy Meal box with an advertisement for The LEGO Batman Movie.
Movie tie-ups have been a staple for McDonalds as they had a joint promotion with Warner Bros during the screening of The LEGO Movie back in 2014.
Each week during the movie’s theatrical run, the Happy Meal came with a collector cup with one of the LEGO Movie characters emblazoned across the surface.
As much as I would love to have the Happy Meals come with either a minifigure or a polybag, chances are slim there has not been a direct promotion that involved bricks or minifigures in recent years.
Even in 2008 when they had a promotion for The LEGO Batman Video game, they gave out slightly larger ‘minifigures’ in somewhat permanent poses with bendy arms and legs.
I would love to see a Fast Food Cashier Batman or perhaps even the Joker dressed as Ronald McDonald. Now THAT would truly be an AFOL’s Happy Meal.
