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.
