A small set with 2 minifigures and exclusive peices.
In the back of the booklet there is a small comic story.
Lots of exclusive parts such as newspapers, motorcycle, jetpack, and Catwoman herself.
Catwoman is exclusive to the set and is a good figure, Batman has exclusive jetpack but is missing his cape.
The completed model
I think that the stoplight falls down on Catwoman a little too easily but it is still a fun set.
A good set overall with two semi-exclusive minifigs, i think this set is easily worth the cost.

This set was a pain to get my hands on! Every walmart I went to was sold clean out, Target too. I had to buy it on amazon for a total of 18 dollars. I didn't want to spend that much but I knew I had to have it. If you're a fan of Batman and Lego this is something you have to get! The design for it is top notch, I still can't get over how great the street corner looks! The mail box it a nice little build and the street light is too much fun, though the exposed technic bar stands out a little it can easily be fixed, The boxes included are just the cherry on top! I can see kids loving this set because of all of the playability it offers. The Catwoman and Batman figures look great, No complaints at all about them other than the smiling side of Batmans' head, Considering when he wears the suit he rarely smiles. but that's a tiny nerd nitpick for you, most others shouldn't be bothered by that. But one thing that was disappointing was that his regular cape was not included, I like the little backpack but having the option of both would be great!
1: The great set piece included just makes it all come together. It's a lot of fun and looks great!
2: The dual sided face of Catwoman is a plus for many reasons, You can make her wear the mask with her eyes exposed for a different costume. Say for example her mask from the movies.
3: The printed newspaper will come in handy for those who create vignettes as will the mailbox and street light.
4: The extra pieces are useful, 1 red,light blue, green and yellow transparent stud, 1 light gray flat round stud, 1 black and transparent 1x1 roof tile, 1 blue connector peg with knob, Light Gray T-bar, Extra Batarang, Extra "Wolverine" claw.
1: Catwoman's catcycle looks a bit...silly.
2: Batman doesn't come with a normal cape, while the backpack is cool a lot of people want complete Batman minifigures. Myself being one of those people.
3: The set is difficult to track down, be prepared to buy online and pay a little more than what it actually sells for.
And with that I bring this lengthy review to an end by saying I'd like to see more set pieces like this in the future, ones with more small details added to them, and more interactivity included. This set is truly great. It includes many cool pieces and really sparks the imagination, you may end up paying more than you'd like to but It's worth it.

I received this set as a gift for Valentine's Day, and I can definitely say this one of the better small sets coming out this year. I will be reviewing this set in four sections: Minifigs, Vehicles, Street Corner, and Playability.
1. Batman: The second-best minifig in the set. He's the same as the blue Batman that you get in 6857 and 6860, but without a cape (it would've been nice if they included a spare cape.
2. Catwoman: M-e-o-w! So far, this is the best female minifig of the year (tied with fellow villainess Poison Ivy). Her black suit goes well with the purple highlighs, and the curves on her add to this feline beauty. Her cat mask also works really well.
1. Catwoman's "Catcycle": The main vehicle of this set. The purple-ness is "purrfect". It includes a holding place for her whip and the stolen diamond. The tail at the end is a nice touch.
2. Batman's Jetpack: A nice nod to Batman's gliding cape in "Batman Begins". It's nice to see the return of the claw piece that first appeared in PoP.
Street Corner: A nice touch that the original Catwoman set didn't have. I love the newstand and mailbox. The feature of the falling streetlight works really well.
Playability: Lots of playability. Absolutely "purrfect".
Minifigs: 10 / 10
Vehicles: 10 / 10
Street Corner: 10 / 10
Playability: 10 / 10
Buy this set!

I recently picked this set up from the store and it is the second of the new 2012 Superhero Theme I've picked up. Given the size and price, it is very comparable to the 7779 The Batman Dragster: Catwoman Pursuit set of 2006.
It's your standard cardboard box and the instructions are in booklet form with clear, easy to follow illustrations for each step. I did note that when building the City Corner piece with the signal lights, that steps 6 & 7 have an error on them. Step 6 shows a round 2x2 black plate being placed and Step 7 has that piece missing while showing the placement of another piece.
This set has 89 pieces to it and a few extra pieces. Notably extras of the "claw piece" first seen in the Prince of Persia sets and a new metallic grey 1x1 round tile piece. Printed 2x2 tile Newspapers, new whip, batwings for the jetpack.
Comparing this to the Batman Dragster set which has 92 pieces. You can see why I've took a point off the value as the Dragster retailed for $9.99 and this new set retails for $12.99. It's a clear show of inflation.
You get two minifigures in this set. One of Batman and Catwoman. Catwoman I noted that the print for the mask part of her face is a light blue tint instead of a silvery color from the previous Batman Dragster set she appeared in. Batman himself has a blue suit and makes me think of the old Adam West Batman series.
The build and completed model
The overall build is basically in three stages. The first of which is Batman's jetpack. I love those new wings and want to get more of those. They are very awesome looking. This part of the build does make it different from the Dragster set.
The second build is for Catwoman's motorcycle and it's largely this piece that causes me to compare the older Dragster set to this one. You've got the theme of Batman chasing down Catwoman after one of her heists. This motorcycle is a bit different than her previous motorcycle in that there's no stickers to place on it for cat eyes. It's still purple and different placement of bricks. I'll say I like this newer motorcycle due to a lack of stickers.
The third build is for the street corner and all the boxes that set around it. On it's own, with no City/Town to put it in, this set would or could be boring. But it does create enough of a set piece for having Catwoman speed past it and Batman swooping in to tangle with her. I do like the Signal Light build. I just would have placed a fourth 1x3 yellow plate on the back and another row of signal lights there. Still this little build manages to convey a mood and atmosphere to the set and it's perfect to place in any existing City layout.
Obviously this set is great for those kids and collectors who missed out on the Batman LEGO sets the first time. There are enough different elements, pieces and builds that I don't feel let down like I'm buying a rehash of an older set. Besides, it would be nice to have more than one purple motorcycle rolling around in my LEGO City. And the wings for the jetpack, those I must say again, are just awesome.

I just recently got the catwoman catcycle city chase. I think its a great set! bat man has the gliding suit from the video game which I think is awesome. It's a small set but it provides hours of fun. There are a few bummers like cat woman's whip is brown not black. And her bike is almost the same as the one before. Now on to the mini figs I like that they designed bat man's head so that it looks like he is wearing a sweat band, it makes his head under neath not so creepy. Cat woman's head under neath looks like she's wearing shades. She has a face on the back that you can switch to her front and make her look like the movie one. There also is a traffic light that you can make fall on cat woman.And some boxes to make her crash into. so excellent set a few bummers though.
