LEGO App-controlled Batmobile Is Now Available, But It Is Not For Everyone

If you are NOT a huge fan of Batman, but adore his rides, then this adorable LEGO 76112 App-controlled Batmobile may appeal to you. I am not totally sold, though because, it is a tad too cute for my liking. I mean, the look is OK, but TBH, I can’t look at it without conjuring the image of Ryu Nakanishi’s armored amphibious tank, the G-5 Mecha, from the iconic Gatchaman anime. It has the same chubby form, but instead of tracks, this cute Batmobile had fat wheels. Continue reading LEGO App-controlled Batmobile Is Now Available, But It Is Not For Everyone

This Custom LEGO Batmobile Deserves To Be A Real Batman Ride

Over the years, Batman has lost his appeal against characters with ‘real’ superpower, but one thing that continues to captivate me is his gadgets, more specifically, his ride, the Batmobile. In a way, Batmobile kind of defines this superhero without superpower. I have in my possession two LEGO UCS Batmobiles: the LEGO UCS Batmobile 7784 and the LEGO UCS Tumbler 76023. They are both as fabulous as they are iconic, and now, there is one “fictional” fan built (AKA LEGO MOC) that I think deserves to be in the same place as those two official sets.

If Bruce Wayne Ever Went Broke, This Will Probably Be His Crimefighting Ride

Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman, always gets the best gadgets and rides money can buy, and therefore, to think that the billionaire masked crimefighter will use a Toyota Camry as his ride of choice when he go about kicking baddies’ ass is nothing less than absurd. Seriously, Joker will probably die laughing. However, if he ever go broke, who knows he may resort to converting a lacklustre ride into his Batmobile like what this Imgur user did. But, of course, knowing the Bat, he will probably tricked out the drivetrain to maybe include jet engine(s) and the requisite afterburner(s), along with Bat-ish not-so-aero aero kit and a bunch of seemingly just-for-show bits. And how can we forget the Batman’s favorite color, black for the paint job, eh? Continue reading If Bruce Wayne Ever Went Broke, This Will Probably Be His Crimefighting Ride

Guy Built Christopher Nolan’s Batmobile ‘Tumbler’ Out Of A Minivan

Thinking of getting rid of your rusty, old minivan? Well, don’t. Not at least until you have read this. What you see here is the modern day pop culture, the Batmobile, AKA Tumbler, made famous by Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, DIY-ed entirely in the garage. Granted, this is a rather crude contraption, but you’d be impressed if you know that it actually has a minivan underpinning. Yes. That’s right. This is in fact a bat-minivan, or batvan, if you will. Cobbled by Instructables member Kid Hero who we’d hailed as a real-life superhero for making minivan great again. It may not look exactly like the movies’, it does look reasonably decent.

Look, Chevrolet Built A Life-size The LEGO Batman Movie’s Batmobile

During the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) last month, American automaker surprised visitors with a unlikely ‘concept car’: a life-size LEGO Batmobile straight out of LEGO animated flick The LEGO Batman Movie.

Justice League RC Batmobile Spews Real Exhaust, Offers FPV Driving

What you see here is a RC Batmobile from toy maker Mattel. So what’s with this RC toy that gets us so stoked? Well, first and foremost, it is an exact replica of the Batmobile that will appear in the upcoming DC Comics’ Justice League movie. As you can see, Bruce’s crimefighting automobile gets some serious boost in firepower with an over the top look for good measure. Hey, we are not complaining cos’ it’s Batfleck. But being a replica of the movie’s car is just half of the story. The other half being, it has a real exhaust that, you know, spews out white smoke (harmless smoke, Mattel assures) and a dashcam of sort so you can drive this badass ride with your smartphone as what Batman would sees. Continue reading Justice League RC Batmobile Spews Real Exhaust, Offers FPV Driving

Batman Meets Steampunk And Awesomeness Ensues

Considering how dark Batman’s comics, cartoons and movies are, I think it is only fitting that this world’s famous, fictional caped crime fighter receive his fair share of steampunk treatment and steampunk treatment it did get, courtesy of Olivier Xavier. Little is known about this awesome creation, but according to the man himself, this Victorian-age cape crusader’s ride was scratch built for his son’s fan film and that was it. No build details, no words on when the fan film will be out and if we will be able to catch it. Regardless, we have a feeling that it is going to be an awesome work of art too. I mean, seriously, a Victorian Batman? That’s clearly beyond awesome. Continue reading Batman Meets Steampunk And Awesomeness Ensues
