Batman Tumbler - Instructions


You know, with the advent calendars offering ultra small models everyday for 24 days, some models really just suck hard. Of course, it could be worse. You could end up with a single element for the day. Larry Lars proves that great things can come in small packages. His micro-scale Tumbler pictured above is only 12 pieces. As a comparison, the AT-AT from day 10, which isn't terrible, has the same piece count.

Now I'm wondering if a LEGO Super Heroes Advent Calendar is feasible. LEGO would probably have to make two separate calendars though, one for DC and one for Marvel.

And they would sell like gangbusters.

Put me down for one of each.

DC - Santa Joker and henchmen galore.

Marvel - Santa Spidey or Deadpool and some spider-slayers perhaps.

YES! We need super advents!
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

I wasn't sure which piece you were looking for, but I'm guessing it's one of these:

Kudos to Larry Lars on the build. It's an amazing amount of detail for a microscale MOC with only 12 pieces.

Very nicely done to have that much detail at that scale. :thumbsup:
Yea, though I walk through the valley...

Where does he get those wonderful toys? Seriously though, what are the rear wheels? That's the one piece I haven't been able to identify.

I cannot for the life of me determine what pieces are the back wheels?

Thanks! It's really great to see all the positive reactions to my little micro build.

You're right. Those are the pieces used. Connecting the front to the back is the second one you linked to.

He mentioned that in the flickr comments, "The weights from the collectible minifigure weightlifter." I had no idea either.

Sorry, I've missed those requests. Solo is right about the weights from the collectible minifigure weightlifter.

With all the AFOL's hunting for black 3L bars, I thought everybody knew that piece well. :)
