We'll I believe that six pictures are not enough to see all the wonderful entries in Hinckley's competition, but unfortunatley they do not want to share, so you get stuck with mine!  X-D  :-P

Anyhoo, here is a view of the whole thing:
Posted Image

The batboat can fit through the dock pretty easily, as can other small boats. You can see I slipped in my love affair with chains as a handrail!  *wub*
Posted Image

Here is the first level. It has a display for the two batsuits, and the Robin suit, as well as a jail cell for my latest enemy in Eurobricks city: iamded!  X-O
Posted Image

Heres my favourite part, the control room! It has a semi-circular desk where I do my investigations. On it are a set of iamded's fingerprints I'm trying to match up, and a Joker Gas Bomb I'm attempting to gain an antivenom for.  On the right is a small shelf with a model human skull and poison ivy toxin. Behind me is my Brickarang holder and on my right (your left  ;-) ) is my Brickcomputer.
Posted Image

Heres my Bat-submersible, which is completely watertight, and small and agile. It can go underwater for short distances, which is required for the best access to the cave, which is accessible by an underwater cavern on the coastline. In the background is my cape holders, with mine and Robin's cape. Also a bat  :-D
Posted Image

A view from the side, You may notice on the crane, a small computer used to operate it  ;-) :
Posted Image

Here is a spider web, covering the lower room, which holds the controls to the batcave and its many functions:
Posted Image

It is accessible by a small diagonal ladder extending into the main platform:
Posted Image

The access ramp:
Posted Image

The dock from above, believe it or not but the batboat can actually manouvre pretty easily in there  :-D :
Posted Image

iamded in his cell, ha ha!  :-P   Oh wait! The cell is open!  X-O
Posted Image

Sideview with capeholders:
Posted Image

The Batsubmersible on its own, actually fits a minifig for its small size. I'm quite happy with it, its rather sleek for something that can fit Batman in it:
Posted Image

I accidentally caved a slope in this pic, so just ignore that, it is watertight  ;-)  (just not now  X-D ):
Posted Image

You can see him in this one:
Posted Image

Back of the whole thing, pretty plain, but its meant to be a cave so the back isn't really meant to be good  :-/ :
Posted Image

A couple more shots of the whole thing:

Hoped you liked it, comments and constructive criticism greatly appreciated!  *sweet*

This looks indeed like a pretty decent BatGrotto, with some nice features like that
crane and some fine details like those trans clear bricks. A neat work, and this
BatSub´s sleek and smart too, although perhaps a propeller could be nice, though.  *y*

Ah, my PM worked! :-)

Aaanyway, I  *wub*  this MOC! The secret room is great, and the accesories are nice! If this were made into a set, I would estimate... $90. KUTGW!

So, are you going to make a bad guy hangout? It would make sense. Just a thought.

Very cosy cave you have there!

Love the detail, you thought of everything! *y*
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

thanks, and I was going to include a propeller but I forgot to  :-$   I guess the side jets will have to suffice.

Thanks VBBN!  :'-)   Thanks for noting the accessories, they are my favourite part of MOCing because they make it look far more detailed. Actually, now that you mention it i might make a badguy hideout!  8-°
I hadn't thought of this, I'll see what I can do! Thanks again!  :-)

Nice bat-cave and veichles, Batbrick *y*

You sure have lots of accessories and mechanisms there 8-° .

Just one thing: I hope you have a perfect heating, else you'll have serious health problems living in a cold cave with all that water around ;-)

Very nice--I've gotta finish my Batcave and share it with you guys.  I don't think it'll be as nice as yours, but still.  I'm all about the sharing.

Thanks LuxorV, the accessories and functions in my MOCs are probably their saving grace!  :-$
And yes, I have been a bit chilly lately, maybe I should install a bat-temp-moderator, also known as a heater.

Yeah, you did in the Neighbourhood Contest Discussion Thread   X-D

EDIT: What? I havn't posted anything?  :-$  Great job, Batbrick. I love your control room. I see you've got two computers, perhaps so you can post two comments on Eurobricks at once  X-D  I also love how the base is in the water (in a cave) and it has all of the walkways along it  *wub*  Great job!

You did comment on it in the entry thread, I believe it went something like this: "Oh Batbrick you are SO my hero! Greatest MOC ever!   I worship you, even more than icecream!", of course I DID wake up a few moments later  :-D

But thanks, feedback is really important to me, even if, after doing a shot of you in prison, I left the cell open!

Wow, excellent work here!  I'm a big fan of batman and this is a great model!  My favorite parts are your office area, great detailing, and the costume display.  It reminds me of the display case from Batman Beyond.

This could be my favourite Batcave ever.  *wub* You have done a great job in working around piece limitations (such as only one black ladder at the front) and you have produced something great. Personallly I think it is better to focus on the insides rather than the cave itself as unless you have a lot of bricks the cave will end up looking small. I love how the whole MOC is elevated. The crane is a nice touch, although I am unsure of it's purpose.... (Yes it lifts the sub, but why? It can't be worked on like that, no can it be entered...) The prison and display case is really cool too, and I love the control room. This is a much better cave than what Lego produced, but they prioritised silly function over detail. (I did like the turntable of the official set though.) Overall I think this is a great MOC. The question is; is it finished?

As for constructive criticism.... err.... where's the car?  ;-)

Thanks Sinner!  :'-)
It is pretty much finished, considering I demolished it a while ago. I don't have many bricks, nor plates, so I had to think of ways to get around shortage problems. The crane is used to lift the submersible out of the dock to make way for other vehicles and for repairs in a sadly unbuilt station that was to go next to it. Think of the sub platform on the Aquabase, but with repair kits  ;-)
I really appreciate your comments on this, and while i do love the Batcave lego produced (which I have now! X-D ) this one will always have a special place in my heart  *wub*

Thanks again!

EDIT: And as for the car, this is not THE Batcave, but a second one stationed on the coast accessible only by boat, even then the entrance is hidden, so unless the Batmobile can float, I don't think I'll include it.

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

The moral of Indy is...
