Tumbler _02

Like many others I guess, I was completely fascinated with ZetoVince's stunning Tumbler. I was looking at it and I was thinking: man, this is just amazing, there HAS to be a way to get Batman into the damn thing, even at this scale! And there was.


So here's my lego Tumbler with opening cockpit, steering wheel/joystick, gear shift lever and inside controls. And of course, Batman "is in the house"!


I've kept all the best parts from Zeto's body design, but the chassis is completely different, as it goes around the minifig and it's built using mobile joints. Compared to Zeto's design, it's only one stud longer and (almost) one stud wider. And A LOT more sturdy!


My favorite part of the body design is the double-fender front hood which brings the design even closer to the real thing. I've also added some more gizmos like antennas and that small glass thingy on the front hood. Because it's built on mobile joints, it can even assume different cruising "modes", for instance raising from the ground (I'll try to get more pics at some point).


And again, all credits go to ZetoVince for his one of a kind design. Thanks and enjoy, I really hope you'll like this :)
