LOS ANGELES, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Lego has revealed a new line of Minifigures that provide potential hints into which characters will be featured in Warner Bros. upcoming animated comedy, The Lego Batman Movie.

Released on Facebook Tuesday, the toy company shared a group photo of the colorful figures that include obscure Batman villains and new comedic outfits for the Caped Crusader.

"We are excited to announce the new LEGO Minifigures- The LEGO Batman Movie Series! Available January 2017!" Lego captioned the photos.

Batman mainstays Commissioner Gordon, The Joker, Harley Quinn and The Red Hood are shown alongside lesser-known characters such as Mime, King Tut, the Eraser and Zodiac Master.

New costumes for Batman who will be voiced by Will Arnett, include a Kiss-inspired one complete with a guitar, a caveman outfit with a club and beach attire with an inflatable duck to wear in the water.

Notably Robin, set to be portrayed by Michael Cera in the film, is shown holding a can of shark repellent, a reference to the Adam West led Batman film from 1966.

Also starring Ralph Fiennes (Alfred), Zach Galifianakis (The Joker) and Rosario Dawson (Barbra Gordon), The Lego Batman Movie opens in theaters Feb. 10, 2017.

A recent trailer for the film featured Batman coming to the realization that he needed help in his fight against Joker and his gathering of villains.
