I recently discovered two excellent models of the Tumbler and The Bat made by a Taiwanese Lego fan who goes by velociraptor. What interested me were the photo instructions he provided for both models, which you can view on Brickshelf (click on photo below) or Pockyland (Tumber and The Bat).
LEGO Batman models on The Brothers Brick
DC Comics’ legendary Dark Knight has a solid place in the world of LEGO, with official LEGO Batman sets released in 2006-2008 and again starting in 2012 (As part of the LEGO Super Heroes DC Universe line). Along the way, there have also been two LEGO Batman video games. But all the official products pale in comparison to the wonderful fan-built Batmobiles, Batwings, and variations on the Batcave. See all of them right here on The Brothers Brick.
An iconic scene deserves an iconic photo, and Project Azazel doesn’t disappoint. The approach to this photo with forced perspective gives it a larger feel. Oh, and it lights up. I was totally sold at the working Batsignal.
Here is a review of 10197 Arkham Asylum Breakout where I talk about the parts and the model while highlighting some interesting building techniques. In summary, while there are only a few new pieces in this set, it is well-designed and features noteworthy techniques such as the stained glass window, sliding jail doors and more.

Here is a video review of 76000 Arctic Batman vs Mr Freeze. It’s an average parts pack with outstanding minifigures and a decent batboat. The retail price is $19.99 and was available on Amazon before going temporarily out of stock.
Not content with the barrage of carols, mistletoe and evergreens, Simon Liu presents a visual guide to an alternate version of Jingle Bells. Made possible by the dynamic duo themselves and a familiar cast of characters and bright colors. You can see each of the lyrics on their own. And for those that would like Continue reading →
Here is a little mosiac that I worked up this week. As some of our readers know, I’ve been dabbling in mosaics for the last year. This one is based on the 60′s version of the Batman logo as I am planning to attend Emerald City Comic Con next year and Adam West will be Continue reading →
First unveiled at Emerald City Comicon earlier this year, I’ve been itching to blog this gorgeous Batcave by Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey for nearly six months. Batman’s headquarters is built from over 20,000 parts, took more than 800 hours over twelve weeks to build, and weighs more than 100 pounds. The entire cave Continue reading →

Flickr user Tiler has recently been working through creating various vehicles from The Dark Knight Rises in Lego form. We featured his Tumbler models not long ago, but he’s been hard at work since then adding to the roster. Although we’ve seen many fantastic versions of Batman’s vehicles over the years, but what grabbed me Continue reading →
If you liked Arthur Gugick‘s Anakin-Vader lenticular mosaic, then you’ll love his recent one that depicts Batman and the Joker.
We’ve seen some great LEGO Tumblers here on TBB over the years, but this mini version by Tiler just might be my favorite. With a great economy of parts and lighting to enhance the angles (black LEGO is especially tough to photograph), Tiler pulls it off wonderfully. He’s also built a batch of great camo Continue reading →
