[MOC] Vehicles from the Asylum

Recommended Posts

One thing that I really liked about the Batman Arkham games (especially Asylum and City) was how they designed the costumes/vehicles.

They truly managed to strike an excellent balance between realistic and comic-bookiness.

I have already recreated the Arkham Asylum Batmobile in Lego and it still maintains to be one of my favourite Batmobiles to date. I however also wanted to give the Batwing from that same game a go.

Now I am not one for building planes, never really done so, so to create such a unique looking vehicle was challenging but fun.
Am I 100% satisfied with how it turned out? No, probably not but I managed to make it as accurate as possible as I could without making it unstable + it also had to fit a minifigure (which it can :)).

So now I am presenting you; Vehicles from Arkham; my Asylum Batmobile with some new modifications and the Batwing from the same video game Arkham Asylum, I hope you enjoy. 

 

Here are some shots of the two vehicles, as you can see they go pretty well together.

Now lets take a closer look at the Batwing by itself;

As you can see it can easily fit a Batman figure with big cowl.

Now lets take a look at the redesigned Asylum Batmobile;

The rear is where most of the modifications took place, after seeing some more shots of the real thing I realized how inaccurate my previous version actually was so with this one I hope to correct that.

As you can see, this one can also easily fit a Batman figure with big cowl.

One final shot of the dark knight with his new tools of Justice.

 

I truly hoped that you enjoyed these little builds of mine, feedback is as always greatly appreciated. Have a nice day :)

These look really wild. Very good designs and colours. I really like the dieselpunk influence they have. Great job :classic:

I'm not super familiar with the Arkham games in depth, and I didn't realize they had a Batwing. But  your rendition of it is pretty spot on! :thumbup: :sweet:

Dieselpunk! :wub:

Its funny you mentioned that, because the Batwing reminds me of this fighter plane by Flickr user Jonhall18 with its long nose.

Yeah, absolutely. Dieselpunk style likes turning planes back to front, which looks really cool :wink:

Wow, I love the smaller scale of these compared to official models. They'd be great companion pieces to an Arkham diorama :wub:

These builds have a lot of nice detail at a fantastically small size.  They look almost like Microfighters - or perhaps the Tie Advanced in the UCS Death Star playset.  Could you post some pictures with the cockpits open?  I imagine the key to the entire structure for each build is the cockpit area.
