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.

Batpod From The Dark Knight Trilogy Is Set To Go Under The Hammer

If you are still in the process of cobbling together a real working The Dark Knight’s motorcycle AKA Batpod, well, we have news for you. You can put away your tools cos’ the real deal is going under the hammer. Which means, if you have piles of cash to burn, you may have shot at owning it and save yourself the agony of building one. The two-wheeler with ridiculously fat tires that seem almost inhumanly possible to steer you see pictured here was one of the six real working Batpod made for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy and was mainly driven by stunt rider Jean-Pierre Goy. So you can be assured that it is rideable, though its road-legality is questionable. Continue reading Batpod From The Dark Knight Trilogy Is Set To Go Under The Hammer

Julian Checkley’s Insanely Accurate Batman Arkham Origins Cosplay Will Blow Your Mind

Don’t sneer at Arkham Origins video game, thinking that the Dark Knight’s suit would be too cumbersome for mobility’s good, because brilliant cosplayer, Julian Checkley and his crew over at Order 66 has created an insanely detailed suit modelled after the cape crusader’s suit from the game and it appears to be as mobile as the game has depicted. Granted, it is not made from bullet-stopping materials as it should be, which would, logically speaking, be too heavy for non-Bruce Wayne person to handle. Instead, the suit’s armor parts are 3D printed, which means they are likely to be plastic of sort (Tony Stark’s metal 3D printing is not quite accessible yet, remember?) and thus, its weight should be manageable. Should be. Continue reading Julian Checkley’s Insanely Accurate Batman Arkham Origins Cosplay Will Blow Your Mind

Batman Super Fan’s Kid Gets Custom Tumbler Baby Stroller, Daddy Looked More Excited Than Kid

Here’s another Super Fan Builds by prop maker Tim Baker and team. This time, the super fan chosen was Josh Earl who is a mega fan of the Cape Crusader and a father of one. How big is he a fan? Very big. As judged by the massive Batman-related collection leading to and in his office. And for that, both he and his kids get this amazing custom Tumblr baby stroller for being a super fan. We not sure if the kid was all that elated, but one thing for sure, the father did look more excited than his son, Collin. Kids at this age probably don’t get what’s happening and besides, looking at Collin’s stature, you’d outgrow the custom baby stroller pretty soon. Also, as nice it is (but not the kind of I wish I was young again kind of nice), it could be a little on the unpractical side.

Batman Won’t Leave His Marks Everywhere, But You Can With This Batman Branding Iron
