The recent Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, is one of the most memorable. The dark themes and design make this one of the most gritty versions of Batman. Completely skipping the overt campiness (and imagination) of the Tim Burton films. The Batcave is one of the most popular themes for a MOC. It is really difficult to stand out from the crowd, but Brent Waller has created something special with his Lego Dark Knight Rises Batcave.
In order to make a more awesome display, some liberties were taken with the layout. The waterfall and a few platforms have been moved in order to make the display more viewable. Most of the most popular Rogues Gallery villains have been hidden around the Batcave. Bane, Catwoman, Joker, Ras Al Ghul, Scarecrow, Talia Al Ghul, and Two-Face have all found their way in. Maybe Batman should install a security system.

Batman’s Tumbler is one of the most iconic vehicles in recent cinema. Lego quickly released a version of their own, titled “Lego Super Heroes Tumbler Chase (76001).” While popular, a lot of fans were underwhelmed by the actual design of the Tumbler. It was small and simple. Lego has recently given it another try with the release of “Lego Superheroes The Tumbler (76023).” This one is scaled up larger then the Minifigures, but is extremely detailed. One of the coolest vehicles Lego has released.
But, Lego is still missing a good Minifigure scale Tumbler. Brent Waller has decided to create his own, and best of all has created instructions to build your own. This Batmobile is perfectly scaled for Batman, while preserving the detail and shape of the famous car.
A Lego Ideas (CUUSOO) page was created to support this MOC, and it quickly earned its 10,000 votes. Ultimately Lego announced that this would be “not approved.” But don’t worry, if you have enough Lego bricks at home, you can create your own.
