    [MOC] The Batman Batmobile

    Hey everyone,I'm very proud and excited to show you my take on the Batmobile from "The Batman".Unlike any other Batmobile to date, this latest version of the iconic ride takes us back to its routes of being a modified car while adding its own twists and incorporating design cues iconic to the long history of Batmobiles.I was very curious to see how this would be used in the film after the initial reveal photos, while I was excited to see it in action, it was its start-up sequence and the car chase scene that truly made me fall in love with the car and make me want to build it.This was an amazing build to work on since it's out of my comfort zone, after 6 months of development and various iterations I feel really happy with the results. My focus as usual was accuracy, so everything you'd want this model to have, it has. Not only that but this has to be one of the most sturdy and stable builds I've done.I'm also happy to say that this will fit any Batman figure you have, whether it has the Type 1,2, or 3 cowls. I'll share some more in-depth looks of specific details and behind-the-scenes of the model on my IG so make sure you follow me there. If you're interested in building this check out the Rebrickable page! Would love to see this in your collection: https://reb.li/m/122475 Also here's the Showcase vid:

    [MOC] Minifig Scale Batpod

    Here's my take on the Batpod from The Dark Knight trilogy I recently finished my Tumbler and had the urge to build this after watching some reviews of the Hot Toys version. I wasn't going to build it this soon but I made the guns on Stud.io and got really excited so I made the rest.It's heavily inspired by Young Wook Song and Michael on Flickr. I wouldn't say this is 100% minifig scale but it's pretty close and looks really good in most angles in my opinion.Accuracy was a priority as usual, however, that came at the expense of some functionality. As a result, this is mostly a display model You can find the parts list and free video tutorial both at my Rebrickable and YouTube. Here's a link to both Rebrickable: https://reb.li/m/120716 YouTube:
  3. This gothic-style building is inspired by 2011 Harry Potter set 10217 - Diagon Alley, specifically the Borgin and Burkes shop. There are also two heavily modified versions of the gangster car from Shanghai Chase set 7682, now being used as identical police cars, while the 1930's officer torso's are from the recent modular police station. This building will serve as my town's 1930's-set police station. It was heavily expanded from it's original form to have a second story and back wall. It also has hinges (like in the old Medieval Market Village - set 10193) to allow for it to open up to 90 degrees to access the detailed inside. The building's design also features a tower, three fireplaces on one chimney flue, and staircase to the upper floor. (Sadly, the attic has no room for any staircase leading to it.) The front half of the building's exterior, with the imposing public entrance based of Borgin and Burkes from the 2011 Diagon Alley set. This model will serve as my police station on my town, and as such has a jail cell, "wanted" board, and two desks in the front half alone. The rear half of the building's exterior, with officer entryway and a roof-mounted bat signal. Why have that, when the model is not set in Gotham City? Because Batman! The back half has the other portion of the jail cell and a weapons storage area for officers Photography equipment is also located on this section for documenting suspects. There is also a breakaway exterior wall section to bust the bad guys out of the cell! "Calling all cars! Calling all cars! Silent alarm at the First National Bank of Legoland, suspected robbery in progress. Bat-signal has been activated. I repeat, Bat-signal has been activated, over!" ...What do you guys think? Comments, questions, and suggestions are always welcome!
  4. I wasn't 100% satisfied with my previous version, so I rebuild it again, making several changes. Now I think it is much more accurate :) Hope you like it.

    Hi guys, after seeing @lego_guyon02's "Updating Your MCU Minifigures", I thought it'd be fun for the DC fans to show off their upgraded DC minifigures. Here are a few of mine. Hope to see some of yours soon! L-R: Jim Gordon, The Batman, The Riddler L-R: Joker, Bane, Commission Gordon in SWAT gear L-R: Brainiac, Cosmic Boy, Lightning L-R: Suicide Squad: Bronze Tiger, Katana, Deadshot, Killer Croc, Rick Flag, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang L-R: Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Hal Jordan, Simon Baz, Jessica Cruz Batman Zero Year Guardian (Mal Duncan from Young Justice)
  6. I went to see The Batman movie last week at the cinema, I loved the movie, but the star for me was the Batmobile, the car has typical muscle car lines from the 70s, but with an extremely exciting and intimidating look, it became my favorite Batmobile. I bought the 76181 set, but I think it's quite different from the original model, so I made a new model from scratch just using spare parts from other MOCs It's 9wide, has enough room to put the Batman minifig and it has custom lights (not lego). It's sturdy and playful, the most fun part for me was building the rear engine.

  7. Hi! I made this Challenger using only leftover parts, from other MOCs I did. Since I don't have the Dodge Challenger set, I made my own. Initially, I didn't know what car I wanted to make, so I look at a Joker Minifig and was taught: "I Have to make that smile!" The rest was building with the flow. I made it in 4 hours using only trial and error, using only the parts I had, no instructions or digital building.

    [MOC] Wayne Manor + Batcave

    [MOC] Wayne Manor + Batcave My first LEGO set as a kid was the Alpha-1 Rocket Base. Fast forward 40+ years and I've been building LEGO sets with by two boys for almost a decade. The one constant over the years is that the original sets never last long, but the imagination and creativity to make brand new creations is constantly evolving. Years of building Star Wars, Marvel, Harry Potter, and LEGO City sets resulted in thousands of pieces in multiple storage bins. After repurposing dismantled sets recently, I wanted to try a "My Own Creation" project with my boys that took things to an entirely new level. The love of LEGO, superheroes, and making things together inspired taking on this MOC project. I plan to keep track of this project and share progress, ask questions, and get feedback. PHASE 0 — Planning the Plan There have been many variations on Batman, Wayne Manor, and the Batcave since the character appears in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939. Then add in the 1960s TV show, cartoons, movies, video games, more movies, and stand alone graphic novels. The good news is that there is a lot of source material to reference for this project. The bad news is that there is a lot of nuance and variation across decades of that source material. The original plan for the MOC was just to build out the Batcave, but the scope quickly expanded to include Wayne Manor too. And a quick search of some other MOCs done related to Batman were either too big or too small. The goal was to build something in the middle — and to have some fun doing it. This meant planning out three structures that would need to come together at some point. 1) A multi-level stately Wayne Manor. 2) A multi-level Batcave underneath. 3) A surrounding support structure. PHASE 1 — Construction Begins The top level foundation work involved pinning together multiple Technic, Brick 16 x 16 x 1 1/3 with Holes pieces in green and black. I needed to have enough space for the Wayne Manor structure and some buffering at the back and edges. The result is a MOC that will be 80 studs long and 48 studs wide. This is the beginning of Wayne Manor.
  9. Hello friends, I'm happy to share my neweset creation and first alternate model in 2022. This Chevrolet Corvette C2 Sting Ray Coupe is an alternate build from the official set 42127 Batman Batmobile. With 1227 parts, this model uses more than 90% of the parts from the Batmobile. No other parts or spare parts are required to build this Corvette alternate model. If you own the set 42127, you can completely build this model without any restriction. Visit rebrickable for more content and building instructions. Features & Functions 1:11 scale HoG steering V8 piston engine very detailed interior openable doors on both sides realistic openable hood to reveal engine pop-up headlights controlled by lever automatic lighting of engine through openable hood lighting in the back to simulate brake light/underground light Impressions Headlights & Lighting The iconic pop-up headlights are replicated in this model and controlled by a lever inside the armature, which is easily accessible by fingers through the windshield and doors. By opening the hood, a light is triggered automatically at the highest point to lit up the engine. The light in the rear can be activated with a lever beside the HoG steering to simulate brake light or underground light. Interesting to know The Corvette C2 as the second generation was manufactured from 1962 to 1967. With this model realeased in 2022, you can celebrate the end of production 55 years ago. Only in 1963, the Corvette Coupe was manufactured with splitted rear window and nowadays this Corvette C2 Sting Ray "Split-Window" is very rare and popular. The name Sting Ray is common for the second generation, where the name Stingray was used since the successor Corvette C3. Instructions The premium PDF instructions of this Corvette Sting Ray comes with 237 pages of high quality images and building steps for a satisfying building experience. Following are some example pages of the instructions: Follow this link to get instructions. The real car manufactured in 1963 Have fun with this replica of Corvette C2 Sting Ray alternate build.
  10. So.... There's a new DC comic where a teenager takes on the mantle of The Monkey King, becoming The Monkey Prince. The story, set at least partly in Gotham City, features The King Bull Demon, Shifu Pigsy, Nezha, Red Boy, Princess Iron Fan etc.. I'm cautiously hoping it does well and expands on the Monkie Kid lore, hopefully making The Journey To The West more popular in America and Europe etc, so Lego may release the Monkie Kid sets in more places and continue with further seasons of the show so that season 4/the next special isn't necessarily the end of MK's animated adventures. "Introducing the newest hero in the DCU, the great sage, equal to the heavens, better than his predecessor the legendary Monkey King, even better than the Justice League—and definitely the Teen Titans—(actually, all the heroes combined), everyone put your hands together for…the Monkey Prince! Marcus Sun moves around a lot because his adoptive parents are freelance henchpeople, so this month he finds himself as the new kid at Gotham City High School, where a mysterious man with pig features asks Marcus to walk through a water curtain to reveal himself as who Marcus really is…someone who has adventured through The Journey to the West, can transform into 72 different formations, can clone himself using his hairs, and is called…the Monkey Prince!" https://bleedingcool.com/comics/new-10-page-dc-comic-monkey-prince-0-in-full/

    [MOC]: ACE, "The Chemical Place"

    ACE, "The Chemical Place" This was a simple build I created for Rebrick's Best of Batman contest, for the location category. This is my second entry into the contest; my first being the Catmobile. In typical Lego Movie Batman fashion, the un-mopped catwalk is the Red Hood's undoing as he soon finds he's transformed from simple crook into the clown prince of crime himself, the Joker! The build features the infamous origin of the Joker, as based loosely on The Killing Joke. While the front of the build features the memorable open vats of toxic chemicals, a prime example of good safety standards, the exterior features not only a representation of the ACE building itself but also a focus on the result of the Red Hood's slip on the catwalk--his transformation into the Joker. To achieve Joker's reflection in the water, I layered Lego foam mirror pieces from the Modular Line.
  12. I made the 2021 LEGO 76240 Batman Tumbler drive (again) and upgraded the looks to be more real. full remote controlled motorization (drive and steer) independend suspension (front: moving liftarms!) moving front armour plates as in movie retractable roof complete do-over of side armor plates: finaly polygons very close to the movie (not flat as LEGO did it) front gunner seat "hydraulics" finally as in movie winglets fixed on both ends now (no loose parts as from LEGO) Mind the Gap - closed that gap between the rear tires (i think in danish LEGO rhymes on lazy ;) Instructions on rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-95123 I already did this with the 2014 version. Actually it was my first LEGO set in years. But I was never really happy with this. There were still too many flaws (as with the 2021 version) This time i wanted it to look more close to the original, finally. So I upgraded the armour and some other details a bit, to fix LEGO's little flaws. This is the LEGO Tumbler Batmobile, I always wanted.

    MOC(s): "Batman: Heart of Ice"

    Heart of Ice Batman Animated Series This is the second longer series of creations I’ve made based off an episode from Batman: The Animated Series, the award winning episode “Heart of Ice”. This took significantly longer then Almost Got ‘Im, though that’s totally due to my laziness. Anyways, enjoy the creations that depict the new origins of Mr. Freeze—which we all now can’t live without! 1) Title This is how I will always remember you. Surrounded by winter. Forever young. Forever beautiful. Rest well my love. The monster who took you from me will soon learn that revenge is a dish best served cold... 2) That's Mr. Freeze to You Load those canisters…hurry! Are you done? All set…uhh…ahhh! The Batman! Freeze! That’s Mr. Freeze to you! 3) Nora My God! Yes. It would move me to tears, if I still had tears to shed. 4) Warm Hand to Hold The snow is beautiful, don't you think? Clean, uncompromising... And Cold. Like the swift hand of vengeance. I saw what happened to your wife…I’m sorry. I'm beyond emotions. They've been frozen dead in me. That suit you wear, a result of the coolant? Very good, a detective to the last. I can no longer survive outside a sub-zero environment. Tonight, I mean to pay back the man who ruined my life... our lives. Even if you have to kill everyone in the building to do it? Think of it, Batman. To never again walk on a summer's day with the hot wind in your face and a warm hand to hold. Oh yes, I'd kill for that! 5) Icy Revenge Stop... Please... I beg you! You beg? In my nightmares I see my Nora behind the glass begging to me with frozen eyes. How I've longed to see that look frozen on you! 6) Warm Hand Awaits I failed you. I wish there were another way for me to say it. I cannot. I can only beg your forgiveness, and pray you hear me somehow, someplace... someplace where a warm hand waits for mine. --- Enjoy ~Nemo

    [MOC] Batman's nightspeeder

    Hello everyone! I won't be wrong to say most of us now are looking forward for the Batman's remake. Because of an old promise and of the upcoming movie I want to show you this creation - nightspeeder. Main functionality - two projectile-launchers activated via separate buttons from the rear. Here are a slow-motion animation (maybe you should wait to load it) and some photos: If you want to build it - you can find building instructions here: Rebrickable Thanks for the attention!)

    [ MOC ] Batpod UCS

    Hi everyone, today here I am to show you my version of the Batpod. When 5004590 was released, everyone was thrilled and tried to replicate one on their own with their parts. However, 5004590 looks just strange when you compare it to the real one. I bought the book The Dark Knight Manual to understand the design more, and research on the Internet for a month, and finally I built a version that I think is closer to the real Batpod. The original Batpod is an escape pod from Batman's Tumbler, and the mechanism is based on the S-shaped axis. Each of the two wheels are connected to the body by one-sided arm only. 5004590 set does not do this while mine follows that design. The shape of the Batpod is also in a reverse V-shaped manner, without any horizontal element. The LEGO set did not do that at all, and my version tries to follow that original profile, with rear part elongated as well to match the proportion. Front view, which shows the asymmetrical design of the wheel axis. The front view has mounted 3 pairs of weapons, with headlights on the sides too. Middle part, which retains some of the details of the original 5004590 set. I like this part the most, which keeps the original design of the Batpod: mudguard between the two pedals. I tried to add some wiring to mimic the original, but it looks too busy and so I ditch it in the end. The whole exercise was started as an MOD, but with my design goals to rebuild the form in the most realistic way, I redid the entire chassis in the end. Looks like an MOC at last! Anyway, there is one technical issue that prevents the front wheel guns from holding permanently, but as a display model, this is perfect already. Thanks for watching!

    The Batcave of Batman

    Hopla ! After 2 years of work, here is finally the monumental underground headquarters of batman : The Batcave Here are photos of the batcave without the light effects I realized that there were several possible interpretations to determine Batcave's style. I decided to go for a rather classic version with a cave atmosphere! The base of the Batcave is on 2 plates of 48x48 but in the end, it is much bigger! It is about 1.70m long and I have added LEDs all over the building. We obviously find in this Batcave, the great classics of the Batman universe, the Batmobiles (different eras), the Bat-computer, the bat-armory, etc... and the supervillains of course!

  18. Hi everyone. I'm c-t, I'm new here. I just wanted to share my Tumbler MOC from the Dark Knight movies with you all and get some feedback. I've tried to build one in this scale before and this is by far my best attempt. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Tumbler by CT Briggs, on Flickr I sacrificed a little bit of detail in the angles of the sides for the sake of durability, but I think it looks good while being very stable. Tumbler Front by CT Briggs, on Flickr Tumbler Rear by CT Briggs, on Flickr I was inspired by these tires. Even though the tread isn't super accurate they were the perfect width and diameter for this scale. They're narrow enough that I can put them four across and it doesn't look too disproportionate. Tumbler by CT Briggs, on Flickr Tumbler Interior by CT Briggs, on Flickr I always like a detailed interior so I did my best. I probably could have fit in two seats if I'd tried but I don't like cramming the figures in there. Tumbler Interior by CT Briggs, on Flickr And that's what I've got! I hope y'all liked it!
  19. Hey folks, another Motorization: all Functions of the 1989 Batmobile (LEGO 76139) RC controlled - yep the Batman again... Without sacrificing any of the nice details: Cockpit is still there, steering wheel works, just all motor driven and I motorized the guns and the roof and even made a tailored sbrick profile. Building instructions: Motorized LEGO 1989 Batmobile on rebrickable Driven by 2 LEGO Power Functions L-Motors (1:1 transmission) steered by a LEGO Power Functions Servo Motor guns engaged/disengaged by Motor roof opened/closed by Motor special Sbrick profile with programmig and grafics included a lot of space for up to 2 battery boxes/control hubs easily reachable under the trunk hatch (details on my rebrickable MOC page) Watch a Review of my motorized 1989 Batmobile on youtube: The Batmobile from Tim Burton's Batman 1989 with Michael Keaton is definitely one of the coolest, it's not as funky as the 1960s TV version and not as tank as the Nolan version but in my opinion it's simply a beaute! The 1989 Batmobile is using over 3,300 pieces, and over 60cm long. I added a few hundred bricks, mainly LEGO Technic and reused some others. So I ended up with over 3500 parts and (batteries included) almost 3.5 kg. That's heavy! So I needed a powerfull drive. I was thinking about the buggy motors but these are large and I wanted to put the batteries into the trunk. So i went for a pair of LEGO Power Functions L-Motors. These are some of the strongest LEGO motors and very small and efficient for their power and speed. The 1989 Batmobile is sleak and lies very deep on the road so it is geometrically impossible to move up any small hills (or even carpets). It will get stuck with its floor height of less then a brick. So it will only drive on a flat surface anyway. So it can be build for speed instead of torque power which the 1:1 transmission of the two L-Motors will do: It's a speed build, literally. One reason to put the batteries into the trunk was, to reach it easily for changing/recharging or simply switching on. Another reason was, to not put them into the beautifull cockpit with its nice self opening windshield - self opening? Yes, now it is motor driven ofcourse. And you hardly see the mechanics on the floor. Okay, the Batman minifigure included is way too small for the car but I found a Batman LEGO LED light, that fits into the car. Just be carefull when closing the cockpit to not get stuck. Slide-open is no problem. The car’s turbine exhaust by the way does not drive the machine guns anymore (it does in the original) because now a motor engages them. So I could make the jet exhaust it look like a real jet engine - the only exterior I changed. To make the two machine guns hidden, under the hood pop up, just press a button now. The Batmobile comes with nice little Bat emblems printed on the wheel rim - try not to lose them while driving, they are rare parts. The set of specially designed tyres for the front wheels is steered in a very specific geometry. I took care to keep that working the exact same way because it works very well for steering. The Build was complicated, took me weeks to get it right. I didnt want to change the exterior and as few as possible from the cockpit. You shouldnt see the opening mechanics. And I wanted to have all the features working, even the steering wheel (though steering is handled by a servo motor now) Every time I thought I got it, something else made problems, untill finally it all worked out. You can skip the trial and error (and breaking old LEGO gears) part: I made instructions and made them easily readable, so you can have it speed build in no time. I believe everyone should be able to build a LEGO set and try to make my instructions like that. Now it's hard to say, which one is the best batmobile motorization I ever made: The Lego 76139 1989 UCS Batmobile has more functions: motor driven MGs and a motor driven roof, the remote controlled motorized Lego 76023 UCS Tumbler I modded however has a full steerable front suspension for the independen wheels. my special Sbrick profile with some automated scripts is included I even made a cable layout for the power functions cables and extentions if you ended down here you may also be interested in or
  20. I've always thought the concept of Batman keeping memorabilia from past adventures on display in the Batcave interesting - maybe because I like collecting things too. Is it out of character for the Caped Crusader to showcase artifacts from his personal victories over deviant criminals? I suppose it depends on your iteration of the character. In any case, it's always fun to see the Batcave trophies show up in various comics and media. The most renowned trophies, the giant penny and mechanical dinosaur, are ultimately recurring Easter eggs from Batman comics of decades past. In this MOC, I went for a small, simplistic take on the Batcave's most famous trophies, plus some lesser-known additions that I found interesting (or that translated best into Lego). Most of the ones I chose are reference to specific ones from the comics, namely the mechanical dinosaur, the giant wheat penny, the giant joker playing card, Deathstroke's sword, Two-Face's original coin, and the Mad Monk's hood (plus references to the Penguin and Scarecrow). As a bonus, I snuck in my own take on the Whirly-Bat, which uses an inverted arch to make up the helicopter's body. I love how Lego incorporated this goofy Bat-vehicle in Lego Batman 2 and in an official set since then. I've tweaked this MOC a lot over the years and finally decided to share it. Please share your thoughts below!

    76161 UCS Batwing mods

    Hi, first post about doing a mod, but I felt pretty passionate about this one. Having grown up with the "original" Batman films, I loved the UCS Batmobile, and while I also love the lego Batwing, the elongated cockpit really struck me as a bit NQR. I tried various mods on mecabricks, and while the most accurate "shrinkage" (based on the original studio model) of the length of the cockpit would require the removable of (two) of the sections of 1/4 clear wall elements, this would require a full blown redesign of the seat and cockpit to fit it all in the remaining one. I also tried utilizing the new UCS A-wing canopy, but it's width isn't the 8 studs required (6 only), and again, a full redesign would be needed (which is a shame as it is a more accurate shape compared to this sets design) So finally, I settled on removing 2x BOW 1/4 4X4X1 which effectively shortened the length by about 2-3 studs (along with removal of other parts that were between the two cockpit sections). This allowed me to move the front of the canopy backwards 1 stud (more screen accurate) and also move the back "shell" (WALL ELEMENT CONE 3X6X6) forwards - again more screen accurate. To complete the look, I'm planning on printing some back vinyl to make the rear section of the canopy a sloping black area (rather than clear all the way back then a vertical black where the shell starts). The other major change I made was to remove some of the dark grey "detailing" to remain more screen accurate - especially the spoilers. I narrowed them by a stud to take advantage of the void below them created by removing the two LDG 2x6 bricks, which then allowed them to sit much more flush when down (with some detailing underneath 1 stud lower than the rest of the wing area) Instead of writing more, maybe I'll just show what I'm talking about, as it will hopefully make more sense that way. Happy with the overall result. Original model: Original studio model:
  23. Hi folks, I made a motorization for the good old big Batman Tumbler, if youre interested, seems to be the only one out there, the instructions and details are here. full front suspension with moving swing arms (those big things in the front that hold the wheels, like in the movies) Power Functions servo motor steering system, nicely hidden so you won't see it through the windows or in the front what's more powerful than an L-engine and faster than a XL-engine? Right, two L-engines! This motorisation retrofit is fun! Differential for the back axle, with those big wheels you will need it all gears run stable, no cracking suspension for the back axis using springs of the same size as those pseudo springs from the original set a retractable roof (no separate roof parts like in the original) a few other small modifications to make it look a bit closer to the original and make it more sturdy not to lose parts while working very stable frame

    A bijou Batcave

    Following on from my batmobile style experiment, I fell into building a batcave to go with one of them. I decided to try and give the impression of it being hidden in the foundations for Wayne Manor, rather than occupying a entirely separate strata of gothic cavern that sits inexplicably on the Gotham coast. Don't get me wrong, I love giant, elaborate superhero lairs as much as the next person, but for this model I stuck to the essentials: computer, car, equipment. I did intend to build a more elaborate system of passageways behind the facade, even toying with the idea of incorporating a piece of the manor itself. But I kind of ran out of steam with the idea, so this is all there is. Hopefully it is diverting enough as it stands.

    Batmobile style experiment

    I put these together over the past few weeks, mostly to alleviate the boredom of staying indoors all the time! Trying to evoke different styles of Batmobile rather than recreate existing designs. A 'classic' car, trying to evoke the original designs, with a dash of the 1989 take. The 'car of the future' style that ran through the 66 show into the Super Powers cartoon. Mostly an exercise in getting the canopies to work! The militaristic version, patterned after the Tumbler and the dune-buggy from Dawn of Justice. Not especially pleased with how it came out, but hey, steering. A stylised look, more taking after some of the comic interpretations than the film versions. I started with this and the idea of the horns for wheel arches. Enjoy!
