Lego – Batman’s Tumbler


Hi All.

I’ve long moved all my kit reviews over to the Lego Republic but I felt that this one deserved some presence here at Sanders Technology.  Over the Father’s Day weekend, I assembled the following advanced Lego kit which is based on “The Tumbler” from the most recent Batman series of movies starring Christian Bale.

Clocking in at 1869 parts, it’s not even close to being a lightweight set – this one if clearly for the adult fan or the very experienced teenaged builders.  It’s probably more attractive to those who have experience building Technic sets, but will appeal to anyone who is up for a building challenge.

This set features two exclusive minifigures including Heath Ledger’s version of the Joker (which no doubt will be in high demand).  The assembled model is highly detailed and well designed and resembles the attention to detail often found in the Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Series (UCS) models.

The Tumbler, once complete, is just as intimidating as depicted in the films.

More details on the five and a half hours it took me to build this Lego behemoth will be posted shortly on the Lego Republic.
