Post by: OneZeke on November 29, 2019, 10:56 am
Anyone else jump on this when it released last night?
Took me almost 30 minutes of randomly trying to get the thing bought.
However IT IS MINE
Can't wait to get it.
My fav batmobile of all of them.

Got this for Christmas (excellent!) it's a fun build, not too many technic parts to boost the part count, it's solid and HEAVY and it's impressively big!  It's about the same length as the technic Bugatti and Porsche.

Quite possibly ALL the fertilizer!

I've also ordered a lighting kit for it. :D

This is really cool. I liked the set but have the Tumblr and herself might not want a second batmobile on display.

Hi All, just reading through the posts and thought I'd share my display for the 1989 Batmobile. It really is one of my favourite sets!

Brickheadz batman is about the right scale for it. Nice display shelves but can you close it for dust elimination

I came across this earlier and thought this was the perfect thread for it!  It is truly amazing.

Wow, that is an incredible build!

Reminds me a bit of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYa9qBt0lLM which is not as impressive, but also not yet finished... and it's by an Irish guy. No idea who he is though!

That looks massive!  To quote Jack Nicholson

The Irish builder is a cork man -accent gives him away! He's super critical of his work and in serious need of LugBulk. It must be a stay together forever cos it's an awful lot of time to put only to dismantle
