Ok so as Bat month is here i thought it time that i posted my custom Batcave, this cave is roughly based on the cave that is shown in the Batman Animated Series and the Justice Lague Cartoon. I decided to make the cave in all dark grey as i feel that its going to be a dark cave (duh) and mixing greys just didnt work for me. Ive also left bricks hanging out so that it looks more natural.
So here we have a long range view of the cave the whole thing measures 58x88x58 and is 36 studs high. I have put a front edge around the cave so that it looks more enclosed.
Here ive added a work table station and a weapons holder wall for all batmans weapons, as the bats must use loads and lose lots i figure he will need to make more.
AS you can see ive included a giant joker playing card and a dinosaur as all version of the batcave have had some version of each in them.
In this pic you can view both my custom batmobile and the offical batboat, as these are the only 2 sets i have their the only ones that are in the cave but i have made sure that more vehicles can be added.
Also you can see that i have put a chain around killer crocs boat that ive hung from the rafters as a captured vehicle. Also to the side of the batboat you may be able to make out a small cave that can house robin boat.
Here we have another pic of the vehicles and the exits that they can use.
As i dont have the offical batcave ive had to come up with my own bat computer till i get one,when i do ill add the offical one, i like this version as ive tried to place it inside of a rock wall.
In this pic you can see a few of the batmans prised items that hes captured, in the background of the pic you can also see a vault that houses old batman and robin suits, i will be adding more in the next few weeks to the vaults.
And lastly heres a closer pic of the entrance to the cave and the vehicles.
Well i hope you like my custom batcave and any suggestions on how to improve it are welcome and any suggestions on how to make a giant coin are really welcome :-D
If anyone wants more pic then let me know...... *vader*

I really LOVE it *wub* Thats a cave !! There were several on BS, but yours is way way better mate !!
First, I love the "organic" feel of the cave !! Its really raw !! And I love how you integrated everything around that raw look: take the computers for instance ;-)
The bottom level has its great and neat details (bat gadgets wll, water pontoon...).
I love Killer Croc's boat hanging likr that next to all those bats and lamps *wub*
Also the costume room on the first floor is neat !! I really like your custum Robin !!
So many things to look at hehe. You really did a fantastic job mate !! You really deserve *y* *y*
Cave On !!

I intende to add a custom batgirl costume and a nightwing one to the vault at some point, the croc boat can of course be removed and replaced by any bat vehicle.

Again, great work!

There's so many awesome details you've included, and overall it looks awesome. I really like that you pretty much inclosed it in a cave, like it should be, instead of just adding a few walls here and there to make it look like it could be in a cave... I really envy your collection of dark grey.
A truly great MOC. How long did it take to build?

Although it's probably meant to be something different and unrelated, I can imagine that actually is one of Ogel's Ice Orbs in the trophy area...which creates a very interesting history for LEGO Batman there :-D
That's a lotta bricks too

I like the gadget wall and the killer croc boat thing hanging from the ceiling. It all flows smoothly from one area to another

Joe adding the joker copter is possible but it might look alittle bit crowded once ive added the batwing, dragster and batski, as for making it bigger well its down to money again.

Just how many grey bricks are in that?

Well as i stated at the start i left it bland as you put it on purpose after all it is supposed to be a cave ;-)
As for using bits from the offical set i also wrote that i would be using bits from it when i have it, however im not sure that the hydrolic turn-table will fit, but the computer screen and vault is a must.

Lets thank jonfett for letting me use his General Grievous avatar.
As Takua, you are very adventurous and can be reckless and irresponsible at times, but inside you know you have what it takes be a hero.

I don't think that lego's batcave even comes close to this one. Though i have to agree that the turntable would be a great addtion, but even without it, I don't think that lego's batcave is worthy of this one. Exellent moc! Don't listen to him vader. You captured the intereior of a cave absolutley perfect!
