This is really cool! I not a huge batman fan, but I want this! I like how there are empty cells for future villains.

I love this! Mr. Freeze's cell is the best. I actually had the idea to make a Vampyre Castle like Arkham. I started on one tower and stopped because I thought it sucked. Looking at this has encouraged to work on it! (Don't worry, I won't copy you! :tongue:)

Well done, how many extra pieces didi you use?

Amazing conversion. Sadly, I don't think Lego's potential Arkahm set will look this good. ;/

That is awesome! So full of play features, very official. :laugh: I like the use of the Holiday Target set 1x1 as the security camera. I like all the different cells and they all have unique escape features to them, great job there. Can I come over and play too? :tongue:

Great adaptation! I loved how you clearly thought through all the different details according to each villain that you wanted to include! ;)

Wow, that's great! I've been playing with the thought of buying the Vampyre Castle just for this purpose too, but now that we're (most likely) getting another official Arkham soon, I'll wait to see how that one turns out. I love all the details you put into the interior. I especially like Mr. Freeze's, uhm, freezer. :grin: However, while Penguin's cell is very nicely executed as well, I don't think that he actually likes low temperatures, but maybe that's just my interpretation of the character.

Nice work! Let's hope the upcoming set will be at least close to this good! :thumbup:

That is great how every Batman enemy has a different cell design. I really like Man-Bat's. At least he gets a chance to stretch his wings - must be on good behavior.

Somebody get Penguin in here quick so he can tell us the answer :wink:

Awesome conversion! It looks like a great set to play with! My 6 year old brother (and myself) would have a great time playing with it! :grin:

It looks spectacular! :wink: It's great how each cell has different characteristics depending on the villain that's inside. I'm looking forward to more conversions and maybe even MOCs from you.

This is awesome. I really like how you have made a room for a lot of the villains. The castle works great too once you put the sign up.I never would have thought of that.

I might need to get the Castle out of my room tonight and start building it. I might MOD it in the future once I get bored with it. :grin:

Hopefully the Arkham Asylum that might be coming out will be as great as this. :thumbup::classic:

I do not know exactly but I would guess that I removed around 50 bricks and added in the neighborhood of 200. Thank you all for the comments. This has been a lot of fun to build and is getting a lot of use. There are a few other modifications in the works.

That's great, good job here !

Really enjoy the spirit of your creation. Take a picture in the dark while it's rainning and it'll be perfect !

This is a great conversion! It's perfect for a small Arkham, and best yet, the majority of the building is already ripe for conversion in the Asylum. I hadn’t thought of another use for this castle, and with this possibly, I may want to pick one up now!
