Even with the release of the new 1989 Batmobile right around the corner, we continue seeing new models of the caped crusader’s classic ride. We recently featured one such design, and now Lucas has delighted us with his latest version. And I say latest, because he’s made a ton of Batmobiles. While I can’t necessarily corroborate his claim that he’s “the ultimate master at building Batmobiles”, he does make a pretty convincing argument.
I’ll let you review the plethora of designs in his photostream yourself, but let’s take a closer look at this one. First of all, I love the size of it. Whether official sets or fan creations, Batmobiles are often oversized for minifigure scale cars. This one looks just right. Second, the use of minifigure accessories is quite skillful; the frying pans for intakes are especially perfect. Third, many of the updates he made in this version were done not just for looks, but also to make it a more stable model. Not only does it look cool, but it stays together too. Taken together, do all these factors make him the master of Batmobile building? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
Thank you very much for featuring my model :) I must say though that I do not consider myself the ultimate master of building batmobiles at all haha. I can’t even remember saying that in the past… how incredibly pretentious of me :P
I hereby demand instructions. :)
