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.

If you want to see how LEGO should have done their Batwing in the most recent set, take a look at sok117‘s Burton-esque model. He’s built himself a full set of “basic” bat vehicles (land, sea & air) all with matching red leather seats and, I assume, Bat-cup holders for when the Dark Knight gets drive through. As someone on Flickr already mentioned, all that wing needs is a balloon stealing scissor-clamp between the ears and it’s perfect.
Lino Martins is never afraid to push the envelope. For the latest LUGNuts challenge, Batmobile: 2025, his contribution is like no other Batmobile I’ve ever seen. Conceived as a COE, steeped in retro art deco, armored to the gills and badass front to back. I can just imagine what this would sound like roaring down the streets of Gotham.
When Flickr group LUGNuts announced its Build Challenge 51 – Batmobile: 2025, I knew we were in for a treat. As is usual the big guns are always late to the party, but they rarely disappoint. Nathan Proudlove recently contributed this pretty cool Batmobile. Be sure to check out Nathan’s photostream for more pics, including the lighting features.
It’s hard not to get excited when you see the tumbler. It’s really hard not to get excited when you see a LEGO built tumbler. But a LEGO built tumbler with spinning flames, side bombs, movable features, detailed cockpit and transforming Batpod? I defy you not to get excited. Flickr user Artifex creation offers up this excellent rendition of my favorite Batmobile.
I realize we JUST launched this contest a few days ago, so it might seem a bit premature for a contest reminder post, but I have good reason. Forum member volumex kindly pointed out to me that the deadline to enter the monthly contest on LEGOSuperHeroes.com is the 15th of every month. So to be eligible for December’s contest, which happens to be the last month they’ll be holding a contest, you must submit your entries to their site by the 15th of November. Our contest deadline isn’t changing: you have until the 30th of this month to enter in either the Batmobile and/or the GreenLanternmobile category.
Good luck to all.
While we are still enjoying the afterglow of our MOC Madness Tournament and amidst the voting phases, we have one more contest to run before we call it a year. This one is sponsored by The LEGO Group and it’s to promote the LEGO Super Heroes line. The prizes up for grabs are one LEGO Batman promotional figure and one LEGO Green Lantern promotional figure, both from San Diego Comic Con. Your task to build an original Batmobile and/or an original GreenLanternmobile. Sound easy? Check out the contest thread for the complete rules. The deadline is November 30th 2011. Good luck!
I love the Tumbler, Batman’s kick-ass vehicle from Batman Begins and Dark Knight. Not only for it’s complex lines and aggressive posture, but from it’s concept as a converted military prototype. True that a vehicle of such special purpose and limited use would be unlikely to ever make it to prototype form…BUT IT’S SO COOL! This version by Flickr user ZetoVince captures everything I dig about it, and does so at pretty accurate scale and with excellent technique.
