My version of the 2008 Batman Tumbler from set #7888

Until the announcement of the UCS Tumbler I’d forgotten that in 2008, LEGO released a pretty badass version of Batman’s hyper-armored vehicle, first seen in Batman Begins. The most recent iterations were the exclusive Target polybag and the Bane chase set from The Dark Knight Rises.

But both of those incarnations have nothing on the monster two-seater from set #7888, and while taking some liberties with a few parts (those 2×4 sloped windscreens are hard to find in black, and I didn’t have enough black 6×8 Technic modified bricks), I was able to build two of them.  Now I just need the correct Batman to go along with them.  :-)

LEGO Ghostbusters Set Revealed at ToyFair New York

brickplate:

LEGO did a smash-up job with their “Back To The Future” DeLorean, and they’ve done an even better job with their upcoming “Ghostbusters” set from the CUUSOO line. At $50, it’s a bit pricey, but it comes with all four main characters and ECTO-1 — but sadly, no Slimer!!!

Originally posted on The Official LEGO® CUUSOO Blog:

Today we gave a first look at 21108 LEGO® Ghostbusters™ to select collector and LEGO fan press at ToyFair New York, and here it is for you as well!

It’s not every year a pop culture classic like Ghostbusters has a big anniversary, so the team here at LEGO CUUSOO has been working overtime to make this set available as soon as possible. 21108 LEGO Ghostbusters will be available for purchase in June 2014 for USD $49.99 / CAD $59.99.

First, some details from the set’s description:

This fun and iconic vehicle from the blockbusting ‘80s movie is fully loaded with all the paranormal detection equipment needed to track down those ghastly ghosts. It also features cool Ghostbusters logo decoration, removable roof, tracking computer and seats for 3 minifigures.

Now, enjoy a first look at this exciting upcoming set:
