LEGO has unveiled a massive UCS-scale version of the Tumbler from The Dark Knight. The vehicle will measure over 15 inches long and 9 inches wide, has a full interior cockpit, and includes a nameplate, and Batman and Joker minifigs. Although LEGO has produced several versions of the Joker previously, this will be the first appearance of Heath Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight. UCS Tumbler (76023) will be available in September for $199 USD, and includes 1,869 pieces. You can see more images of the set here, or listen to the one of LEGO’s designers talking about the set here.
Imagine the finesse of Jerac‘s spaceship building skills applied to a massive model: the result is this over 2 meter long Imperial Star Destroyer. It is the only large model of the ISD built using the SNOT technique. The result is a super smooth design that hardly looks like a Lego creation. Check out more photos on Jeraec’s Flickr photostream.
The next set in the Ultimate Collectors Series of LEGO Star Wars sets brings back the X-wing – 10240 Red Five X-wing Starfighter. Due out this May, the set will include 1,558 pieces and retail for $200 here in the States.
I’ve upload all the official photos to Flickr, and here’s the designer video as well:

Programming note: Although this info was supposed to go out only after 1 PM PST, one of LEGO’s official channels leaked the story early, so our post is online a few minutes ahead of schedule. FBTB has the amusing tale of the “Worst. Product launch. Ever.”
