Awesome 'Dark Knight' LEGO Tumbler Hits Shelves in September
We just featured a cool collection of custom Back to the Future LEGO Ideas sets that the creator hopes will be turned into real sets for LEGO enthusiasts to add to their collection. But now we're going to focus on a set that customers will be able to buy much sooner. The Tumbler from Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy will be getting the LEGO treatment by way of the brand's Ultimate Collector line. With 1,869 pieces, this is awesome for any Batman fan, or for anyone who just likes awesome LEGO sets. Plus, it comes with LEGO versions of Christian Bale as Batman and Heath Ledger's version of The Joker. Look now!
Here's the Ultimate Collector's Edition LEGO of The Tumbler from The Dark Knight Trilogy:
Thanks to USA Today for the above photos. And anyone interested in picking up this LEGO set will be able to snag it in September for $200 (that seems salty, but the Ultimate Collector line is bad ass). As you can see above, The Tumbler is 15 inches tall and 9 inches wide with an armored exterior, adjustable wings, a detailed interior (with a console screen that reads "INTIMIDATE") and oversized rubber-tread tires. It also comes with a fact sheet about the vehicle from the movies. If you happen to be at Comic-Con this week, you'll be able to check it out in person, but it still won't be available for purchase until the fall. Cool stuff?

I love legos, sadly they are overpriced as all hell. I simply refuse to buy em. This thing is going to cost 200 bucks......................

I know right, 200 bucks for a bunch of pieces of plastic is such a rip off. I don't even know how Lego is in business still but people keep on buyin em (shrugs). If it came pre-assembled however yeah that would be awesome and maybe that price would be worth it if it did as a collector's item but come on you gotta assemble it so not only your wasting money but probably a week trying to build the darn thing.

What the hell are you talking about?! Building the LEGOs is the best part!!

Looks like those armor plates would fall off easily, but I guess this is just another overpriced collector's display item, not for play like the LEGO I remember.
