What if the Tim Burton Batmobile had a Batpod?

If you ever wondered what the Tim Burton era Batmobile would look like if it had a Batpod, well wonder no more as Vince_Toulouse has made it real. Or, erm, LEGO. While no mention is ever made that this “Dark Bike” is related to Batman or his vehicles, the inspiration is clearly there. Also clearly there: extremely slick lines and superb shaping.

If you doubted me regarding the relation to the Tim Batmobile, check out the rear three quarter view. It looks a lot like the wings on the back of that version of the Caped Crusader’s car.

Superb LEGO rendition of the Batman: Arkham Asylum batmobile

Batman: Arkham Asylum is one of the best Batman games. While the Batmobile didn’t have a starring role in Arkham Knight, it did have a fantastic version of the famous car. Paying homage and giving us the best LEGO recreation of it so far is Eric Druon.

One thing to be noted here is the scale here. This model is (by my count) fourteen studs wide. While it may not seem to big from that metric alone, the Batmobile from 76045: Kryptonite Interception is twelve studs at its widest.
