_Tiler’s Batpod

Lego Mini Batpod

We’ve featured _Tiler‘s work here before with his amazing MINI-scale Tumblers and The Bat amongst other MOCs. This time, we’re featuring his MINI-scale Batpod. For me, it wasn’t until I saw the detail of the Star Wars Battle Droid head element used for the handlebars that really conveyed just how small of a scale this model is. He may have cheated a little by painting the element, but I’m sure even the most devout purists can agree that the alteration was worth it.

He also recreated the bomb truck from The Dark Knight Rises in MINI form:

MINI Tumblers, The Bat by _Tiler

Lego Batman mini Tumbler

_Tiler has taken the latest incarnation of the Batmobile and MINIfied it. My favorite part of the photo of is the reflection off of the cheese slopes used for the windows. It’s a great effect to give it that glass look.

He’s also made some camo versions, as well as a MINI The Bat:

The Batwing (aka "the Bat", as I just learned)

Check out his photostream for more awesome MINI and full sized creations.

The Fast and the Fury-ous

It looks like _Tiler is switching gears. Instead of a classic hot rod ispired Batmobile, he’s gone over to Marvel and built a slick motorcycle for his custom Nick Fury. The bike is neat, but I’ll admit my desire for an official Fury figure is what prompted me to post this. This Fury is simple and well based on the one from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As much as I love the classic comic Nick Fury this one has certainly grown on me in the last few years and I can’t wait for LEGO to hurry up and give us something other than a sneak peak at this master spy.

_Tiler’s Batrod

The 'other' car  –  minifig scale lego Batmobile

It wasn’t until Calin’s (_Tiler) flickr stream was linked to in chat the other day that I finally became aware of his work. The above is his latest Batmobile, the Batrod. And yes, it fits the Batman minifig. He’s got a whole host of other incredible works, including microscale and minifig scale Tumblers. Check out his LEGO Batmobile flickr set for more.
