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. 🙂
