King Tut and his sphinx-mobile

The classic Batman TV series that ran during the 1960s had its fair share of strange and flamboyant characters – both heroic and villainous. “King Tut”, an Egyptologist at Yale University turned villain due to amnesia, is no exception. LEGO builder Brick Grayson, creates a neat vehicle based on the concept of the Batman villain, and surely it should make any Batman and LEGO fan very content.

The rear portion of the car is surely a reference to the Adventurer’s theme sphinx, almost quoting the original build verbatim. The rest of the model is smoothly fashioned out of bricks, slopes, and tiles; the shape of it resembling the 1989 Batmobile. Of course, the King Tut minifigure from the first Batman Collectible Minifigure series is operating the vehicle. Grayson’s build is his way of celebrating the television series’ 55th anniversary; it’s certainly a worthy model for the occasion.
