Calin‘s Bat Rod is a nifty creation, but the presentation really makes it stand out. In addition to the appropriate brown vintage background, the lighting texture on the model (especially the roof) is gorgeous. Thanks for the tip Ewok in Disguise!

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.
Shannon Sproule (Shannon Ocean) has a very odd interpretation of the Batman in 2025. It’s for the LUGNuts 51st Build Challenge: Batmobile 2025.
2012 Batman and Superman sets are out a couple weeks early from LEGO Shop online. The new sets include 6864 The Batmobile and the Two-Face Chase, which goes for $50 and includes five minifigs. So far, the Man of Steel is only available in 6862 Superman vs. Power Armor Lex, which also includes Lex Luthor Continue reading →
I’m quite willing to make the call that George Panteleon’s (ZetoVince) The Batman’s Tumbler from Dark Knight is the best I’ve ever seen at minifig scale.
Variety is now reporting that Lego has announced a broad license for DC Comics. What’s more, it appears that they’re giving away some promotional Batman and Green Lantern figures at San Diego Comic Con this weekend. Warner Bros. has expanded its relationship with Lego, granting the toymaker access to DC Entertainment’s complete library of comicbook Continue reading →
Fredoichi recently unveiled this sleek bust of the Caped Crusader. I really like the smooth, finished look of this build. Now it just needs a voice chip saying, “I’m Batman”.
Rick Theroux‘s minifig scale Tumbler rivals the one by Brent Waller. The giant balloon tires and the windshield decals are two of my favorite details on this creation. It’s always a bonus to know that Batman can sit comfortably at the controls. Thanks for the tip, eclipseGrafx!
Chandler (obxcrew) takes on Batman nemesis and former White Knight Harvey Dent in a series of five vignettes. In his first vig, Chandler explores Harvey’s origins as Two-Face: Each vignette includes great details and minifig customization, like the safe deposit boxes and two-face himself in this bank scene: Check out all five vignettes in Chandler’s Continue reading →
LEGO Batman: The Video Game was released this past Tuesday. I’d hoped to play the game and write a review, as I did for LEGO Indiana Jones: The Video Game, but I won’t have time to do that for a couple weeks. McDonald’s has of course had Happy Meal toys inspired by the game available Continue reading →
I missed it initially, but Kotaku posted a fairly long video a couple weeks ago of gameplay footage from E3 of the forthcoming LEGO Batman video game. The video shows several scenes with playable characters that include Mr. Freeze, The Riddler, Catwoman, The Joker, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy. More recently, DESTRUCTOID has a bunch Continue reading →
Reader Chris McVeigh (Flickr) combines excellent photography with recent LEGO sets to tell a funny little story. Captioned “Trading Places,” Darth Vader trades places with Batman: I think Batman got the better end of the deal.
We featured Brent Waller’s desert-camo Tumbler back in April, and now he’s released full instructions for the black version of his LEGO Batman Tumbler. You can download the instructions from Brent’s site (4.5 MB PDF), or view the parts list and page-by-page instructions in HTML.
It’s not often we feature LEGO that’s been painted to achieve the builder’s intended effect. But occasionally, like Jamie’s Dardenbahst, a customized creation rises above the rest and gets my grudging vote of approval. ;-) Check out Brent Waller‘s rendition of the Batmobile “Tumbler” from Batman Begins: Because LEGO doesn’t make the pieces he needed Continue reading →
Head on over to Kotaku for a full gallery of screen shots from the upcoming LEGO Batman video game. Thanks for the tip, Roger!
The diligent readers over on Eurobricks have found high-res renders of the new Batman minifigs. Here’s a dark-blue Batman and Scarecrow: Riddler and Bane: Very cool. I can’t wait for Bane in particular.
