[List of appearances]

Nightwing is a Batman minifigure originally introduced in 2006 in the set 7785 Arkham Asylum. Nightwing would remain exclusive to that set for seven years before he reappeared as a microfigure in a Batman-themed board game. He made another full appearance as a minifigure in 76011 Batman: Man-Bat Attack in 2014. He is also known as Dick Grayson, and he is an ally of Batman.

Description[edit]

The first Nightwing minifigure's black hairpiece is wild, spiky, and reused from the Exo-Force theme. He wears a mask that slants downwards from the sides, curves upwards from the bottom, spikes upward at the nose, and both up and down at the sides. His eyes are white and ovular and he has a smile. His torso is black with his blue "v" logo on the chest. Dark blue and grey lines are used to give the sense of his suit's muscular cut against his body. His arms are coloured blue, continuing from the "v," and his hands and legs are coloured black. He is armed with two transparent light blue escrima sticks.

Nightwing reappeared in 2014 with a minifigure based on his appearance in The New 52. The minifigure reflects newer design standards, including more detailed chest muscles and animated expressions: a grin and a scowl. The logo on his chest has been changed considerably. It is larger, red rather than blue, and dips back up in a centered point before slanting downwards again. Light grey lines representing armour seams are also visible.

The 2014 redesign's back printing

His mask has also been updated, and is now less angular, has red lenses, and a nose-piece. Nightwing's hairpiece has also been updated from the Exo-Force wig to Part:98385.

This time around, he has back printing which includes the wrap-around of his logo, shaped like a "v", as well as a continuation of the seams.

In 2016, his appearance was updated again to his blue suit from the New 52. The red in the suit was changed to light blue. Also the red lenses in the mask was turned to white and the expressions are changed to a smiling expression with a closed mouth and a second with anger with clenched teeth.

Microfigure[edit]

In 2013, a Nightwing microfigure was included in 50003 Batman. He has a blue base. He is designed similarly to his Batman counterpart, but with an angry expression and hair printed directly onto his head.

In the video games[edit]

In LEGO Batman: The Videogame, Nightwing has his appearance from 7785 Arkham Asylum. In LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes he was slightly updated with backprinting. Some promotional images for the downloadable content also show him with the serious, smirking expression used by the modern Robin minifigure and Hawkeye.

In LEGO Batman, Nightwing armed with his escrima sticks and is able to use Robin's super suits which will change his appearance and give him extra abilities on top of his basic ones; grapple, a batarang, and acrobatics (which allow him to walk on tight ropes faster than all other characters, except for Ra's Al Ghul). The water suit gives Nightwing blue legs, a yellow oxygen tank, black flippers, and a black helmet with a red visor so that he can dive underwater and can use freeze batarangs once the upgrade is purchased. The magnet suit colours his legs and arms dark grey, attaches grey magnets to his feet, and a large, red magnet to his back. This suit allows Nightwing to walk up certain walls and the speed is increased once it is upgraded. When using the technology suit, Nightwing's legs and arms are coloured silver and two green antennas and a blinking green light are on his back. This suit allows him to activate special panels and leave behind "Nightwing" decoys after it is upgraded. Lastly, the attraction suit has Nightwing's normal costume, but with a yellow and red canister attached to the back that counts the number of loose, red, yellow, or green pieces he has picked up with the matching hose. When upgraded, this suit attracts the pieces faster and gives directions to where pieces are hidden.

Nightwing's escrima sticks, grapple, and batarang abilities return in LEGO Batman 2 and he is described as having an acrobatic fighting style. Robin's super suits return, and Nightwing is still able to use them, though it changes him into Robin in that respective suit. On the portable versions, he also has the stealth ability.

Background[edit]

As a child, Dick Grayson was part of a circus act known as The Flying Graysons. One night, his parents were murdered during the act. Dick was then adopted by Bruce Wayne, the better known as Batman, who recruited Dick to become the first Robin. After years of serving as Robin and working with Batman and Batgirl, Dick grew tired of being overshadowed and chose to strike out on his own. Around this time, he formed the Teen Titans with other sidekicks and young heroes, such as Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, Cyborg, among others and fought villains such as Deathstroke. After talking with Superman, he learned of the Kryptonian legend of Nightwing, who was a vigilante shunned by his family. Dick adopted the name and retired his Robin mantle, which would be used by Jason Todd later.

He returned to Gotham for a time where he restarted his working relationships with Batman and Batgirl, though they became rocky since Bruce and Dick never made amends and Barbara was jealous of his short-lived relationship with Huntress. However, they eventually made amends, or reached at least mutual respect (as with Batman). Nightwing also worked with the new Robin, Tim Drake.

Nightwing has joined several incarnations of the Justice League and the Outsiders, as well as occasionally assisting the Birds of Prey and newer line-ups of Teen Titans.

In LEGO Batman[edit]

In LEGO Batman: The Video Game, Nightwing can be purchased on consoles for 125,000 studs, making him the third most expensive character in the game behind Hush and Ra's Al Ghul.

Nightwing played no role on console versions of the game, but in Free Play served as an alternate Robin, the only difference being Nightwing walks faster on tight ropes and has different attacks.

In LEGO Batman 2[edit]

Nightwing reappears in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes with downloadable content on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. He also appears in the hand-held versions of the game, and is available for purchase after finding the second minikit in the seventh level, The Batcave. He costs 300,000 studs.
