Technically, this should be volume 3, seeing as how it's not really connected to the first 2 in any thing but name. But I called the second goody bag part 2 so I'm keeping the name.
Noticing your blank faces, here's what's on show:
a quick piece of artwork
Lots of small things this time.
I was looking at Robin's speedboat/jetski thing a while ago, and figured that Bats could do with one. So I followed a similar design and came up with this.
I used a spare sticker from one of the sets on this. I slightly missed the centre, and while it's not obvious in these photos, it really annoys me
It's not initially obvious what a 'Bat-strike' is, but according to a book I have it's the name Bats has given to one of those underwater diving sleds. This is slightly based of one seen in Superman/Batman: Supergirl, but only slightly.
You may have noticed that Bats was just wearing an underwater variant of his costume. Here's a better look:
Nice and simple, but I like it. The clawed thing he has is a little grabbing device for picking things up off the seafloor (or more likely the bottom of Gotham harbour), like Kryptonite, for example.
Gallery (only one other pic, hardly worth the bother )
When facing foes far stronger than himself, like the Scarebeast and even Supes on occasion, Batman has been known to use a suit of Batarmour. I decided to make a suit that looked like it could hold a minifig, but actually doesn't.
The funny thing is, it's bigger than a minifig and the Batarang is still too big.
I figured that Robin needed his own Batcycle. So I borrowed Bane's bike and added one piece to it:
I'm not sure if this is a design I'm completely happy with, but never mind. It's built to the same size as my other Mini Batmobiles.
I particularly like the rear wheel assembly though.
I'm counting this as a MOC rather than a MOD, as there's not really anything here to link it to the Arkham glider (well, save the wing pieces). It's based on the glider from Batman: Year One.
You know, in silouette it would look rather like a bat...
Batplane (Batwing MOD)
I decided that when he was jetsetting around the world to fight crime, or perhaps visit such places as Nada Parbat, Bats would likely take some comany in the shape of Robin. So I MODed the Batwing to have two seats in the cockpit. But in doing so, this became a Batplane, as the unspoken rule is that the Batwing has one seat, the Batplane has two or more.
This was rather difficult to photgraph well, for some reason, so do your best.
As well as adding in an extra seat, I also made the whole thing flatter, removed the rear missile and removed the wing missiles. The nose was slightly rebuilt as well.
Ooh, next door's chair seems to have fallen over...
The back was rebuilt to allow headroom for Robin, and also to give a more streamlined shape.
Robin has to sit in the back...
... while Bats sits in the front. The front seat is a stud lower than the rear one, so as to accomodate the cowl.
I think this is the clearest image of the lot!
Just a quick piece of Lego Batman art, done as a sketch for a larger project (coming soon).
Ignore the question marks...
In his MOCs and MODs treat, Batbrick first gave me a haircut, then a new hairstyle, then pined my unfortunate (and unwanted) temporary break from the site. Damn computer problems...
So, in the depths of the BatbrickCave, Batbrick corners a theif. Hmm, I wonder who it is...
And that's all for Bat-MOC 3 (I couldn't be bothered typing the whole name). There will be a part 4 in the future, as I've already got a couple of things that can go in it. Hopefully it won't take as long as this one did.
In the meantime, check out my other Bat-MOCs and Bat-MODs (not the Batcave shelf though, ignore that).
Questions and comments are, as always, welcome.
