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.

Welcome to Air Batman

You are now free to walk about the cockpit in this massive 1:20 scale model of the classic Batwing. Designed by Eivind Loekken, the Batwing looks sleek and fast thanks to extensive use of angled plates, tiles, and slopes of varying degrees; you won’t find a single stud in sight. Equally impressive is the custom Batman Technic figure seated in the cockpit.

The Tim Burton Batmobile, building digitally and making it a reality

As a fan of the Tim Burton’s Batman movie and the Batmobile, this midi-scale vehicle picks up all the right details and I have to admit, I always have my doubts when looking at a build done digitally in LEGO that looks great. Who knows if it’s going to all fit together and hold up? I’m glad Kaijuworld took his original digital design and made it into a reality, even making the alternate Batmissile split-mode possible!

This was the original render that caught my attention a few months ago that had me drooling all over for its accuracy at this scale.

Nostalgic Tim Burton-era Batmobile

It’s not who I am underneath, but what I build that defines me

In this, the Caped Crusader’s 80th birthday year, what better way to celebrate the influence and impact of Bob Kane’s creation than with Timofey Tkachev‘s large-scale LEGO sculpture? The Batman has rarely looked better in the brick — the model’s shaping is spot-on, perfectly capturing those to-die-for Bat-Abs, and making a nice job of the comic world’s Second-Most-Iconic-Chin (Judge Dredd is clearly No. 1, in case you were wondering). The sculpting of the bat sigil on the chest is worth a good look, and I dread to think about the tricky connections which were required underneath all that armour to get the angles right.

Where does he get those wonderful toys? The LEGO Store, obviously

One of the highlights of Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie was the design of the Batmobile. Its sleek lines, dramatic fins, and ludicrous rocket power was a perfect match for the film’s “Jet-Age Art Deco vs Gothic Noir” design vision for Gotham City. This LEGO version by Centuri is a suitably dark and sinister brick-built tribute — proof that even non-LEGO Batman only builds in black and (sometimes) very dark grey. The curves over the front wheels are perfect, and the fins on the engine vents look sharp enough to cut. And it took me a minute to place the part, but the use of witches cauldrons for the angled round intakes is surprisingly effective.

Batman – Steaming Mad at Criminals

Marvel Comics has their multiverse — alternate realities where the heroes you know are reimagined as something new. DC comics does something similar with their own characters, usually super grim and dark ones resulting from the timeline being broken by something the Flash did. (Really. It’s a trope.) But sometimes these stories can just be bight spots of fun, and if you’re really lucky you’ll get to enjoy one of them in LEGO form. For instance, have a look at this take on Batman and the Batmobile by Breado’s Bricks. Batman always has a ton of resources, so what if he really leaned into the glitz as much as the flying rodent thing? You might end up with the steampunk version we see here. Decked out in gold chrome elements, cape and cowl, and body armor, this Batman may not be stealthy, but he certainly is shiny.

SteamBat brings this sense of style into his ride as well. The BatRod mixes the traditional BatBlack with new and improved BatGold accents. Mag wheel covers and rims echo the highlights in the engine and exhaust. Even more gold adorns the front grill and headlights.

No matter what angle you view this car from, you’re going to be well aware that SteamBats has a lot of cash to spend. Take that, criminals!

Burton-era Batmobile blasting off

When it comes to movie Batmobiles, few versions are quite as iconic as the extra-long, jet engine powered model from the Tim Burton films. This sleek, finned creation by Riskjockey manages to combine luxury and high tech with its smooth curves, intake vents, sliding canopy and those giant signature batfins. The use of arches for the side intake vents is one of my favorite part usages. It’s also worth noting the subtly angled headlight assemblies on either side of that lovely jet engine intake on the front.

Plague Doctor Batman has the cure for what ails you

When Bob Kane and Bill Finger created Batman 80 years ago, they established rules for what he can be. While still following those same basic guidelines, other artists and writers can reimagine Batman with a myriad of possibilities. There has been a Samurai Batman, Robo-Batman, Viking Batman, even an adorable Fairy Batman thanks to The LEGO Movie 2. In the hands of Revan New, we have a fully posable Plague Doctor Batman. Fantastic details abound from the bat-winged trench coat to the brass buckles to the bit of medieval medical equipment in his hand.

The pièce de résistance, however, is his brimmed hat and the arcane bird-like mask worn by actual plague doctors in the 1600s. Revan uses a Harry Potter sorting hat to replicate the bird beak shape, a feature best viewed in this portrait.

Holy Barris Batmobile, Batman!

Back in the 1960s, Adam West delivered campy action and adventure as Batman in the live-action Batman TV series. In my opinion, the show produced the most elegant rendition of the Batmobile, and this LEGO version by Jerry Builds Bricks lives up to the beauty of the original. The 1966 Batmobile began life as the 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car, famous for its then-futuristic bubble windows and pronounced fins. Car customizing legend George Barris modified the Futura’s body for the show. Jerry’s model possesses the sleek body and fins, cleverly positioned bubble windows, and flickering flame. Dare I say it’s Bat-tastic!
