This is my second attempt at a Batman vehicle, my first was an absolute failure. :'-(
There still is hope though, It all lays in your hands Eurobricks! Before I show you the pics I'd like to say that I have only seen the Tumbler once, and that is all. So without further ado, here is my version of the Tumbler,which I have seen once. Enjoy!

Its nice, BUT the tumbler is more rough edges and straight lines. Think of a cross between a Humvee and a Lamborgini.  *y* Still a nice moc.

The tumbler is very hard to do a good job at that scale, and I think you have done a good job...  *sweet* Here's some tips to make it a great job!  ;-)
  • Add some small wings at the back
  • Have separation between the front wheels
  • Add some lights
Since you have only seen it once, here it is!

Thank you Sinner. I'm mainly trying to make this a vehicle for my mech pilot. It's not wide enough to make the wheels any farther from them :'-(
Does it have a front window?

A very cool vehicle and close enough to the original to fit into the realms of the Bat.  *y*
I cant quiet remember, was the driving position in it not a more lying one...?

You've done a great job building that batman car.
I was quite impressed when I saw that car in the latest Batman movie and yours has the same effect on me.

Because this MOC fits nicely in the Lego Theater forum, I've moved it over there.

Thank you Indy565! It took me a while to get the look that I was happy with X-D
Although it doesn't look like the Tumbler that much...

This is very cool Exo-Builder59, though a bit different from the Tumbler, I prefer to think of it as Tumbler-Based  ;-)    I love the chunkyness of it, and the rockraider wheels fit right in!  *y*

Brickmobile #2 ON!

Clearly Batbrick's mind has turned to mush!  *wacko*

It has two driving positions, but aside from looking cool I can't see why.  X-D The lying down one seems to be used for weapons and gliding. Personally I would rather not be head first when in a flying car... :-/

I agree, I wouldn't want to be laying down in a vehicle like this. So it has a front window....oops :-$

It's pretty cool!  *y*

I haven't seen the movie that this is in (Batman Begins?) but looking at the pics provided, this looks fairly accurate. You also have some nice little details in there, too!  *sweet*

If you want to improve it, I'd make the front wheels smaller than the back ones. Other than that, great job!  *y*

Yes the movie is Batman Begins. I couldn't think of any better fron wheels for it, or back wheels |-/
Any suggestions?
Thank for the comments SirNadroJ!

Thats a superb recreation of the Tumbler in that scale! Lots of very nice details, I love it!



As for your questions... I think TLC offered those frontwheels in at least three different sizes. I think you are using the mid-sized ones. Try to look for the small-sized ones. They might fit perfectly.
Also, if its possible, try to combine the rear wheels. Theres a gap between the wheels, and Im not talking about the one in the middle, where theres actually supposed to be a gap for the exhaust :-)
Next, try to "stretch" the thing a little. Put the cockpit a little closer to the rear, and give the engine and the thruster/exhaust a little more space.
And as already mentioned before: Add some wing pieces to the back :-)

Keep up the excellent work! *y*

Could you give me some pictures of these wheels? I kmow there's some good wheels on the new Racers....Hmmm >:-)
I've tried thousands of ways to fix the back wheels, it's not as easy as it looks! *sing*
Once again, thanks everyone for their comments, although I was hoping a comment from Batbrick :'-(

Its nice  *y*

I agree with DJ Force that the front wheels need to be a bit smaller.
(Look in the Bricklink catalouge you should come across them.)
Also some trianglation on the body would fit nicely but i'm sure that would be difficult.
Also the exhaust rocket is pretty important.

But overall its great, better than what I would've done.

I'll tell you what George's problem was when writing this film. He was so preoccupied with whether or not he could…he didn’t stop to think if he should. That’s…that’s chaos.

The moral of Indy is... "Don't get in a swordfight with a Russian chick while hightailing it through the South African jungle while your mom is driving the truck because she will look away from the nonexistent road to criticize your footwork and accidentally cause some oddly bulbous jungle flora to whack you repeatedly right in the junk."
^What some of us learned from Indy 4 (which I did enjoy, I but thought the post above was hilarious)

Apparently Rachel Dawes was also using cheap parlor tricks to hide her true identity in Batman Begins.
