Lego’s Awesome 1869-Piece Batman Tumbler Kit Tumbles Our Hearts

LEGO Batman Tumbler

With a new Batmobile taking over Batman-shuttling duties in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, what better time is there to revisit director Christopher Nolan’s awesome Tumbler from the Dark Knight trilogy? As the bad-ass Tumbler retires, it seems we aren’t the only ones keen on the thing—the geniuses over at Lego have created a Tumbler kit you can actually buy.

Beginning September 1, you’ll be able to pick up the 1869-piece Lego Tumbler kit for a cool $199. It comes with exclusive Batman and Health Ledger Joker minifigs, a stats plaque for the real-life/full-size Tumbler, and Lego’s typical attention to detail. There are adjustable winglets above each rear wheel, a fully spec’d interior, and the correct dualie rear axle. The only misstep: The Tumbler’s jet exhaust does not actually spit fire, although we’re sure some enterprising customizer can fix that for you.

The vehicle’s size also impresses, since it measures a hefty 15 inches long, 9 inches wide, and stands just over 5 inches tall. While our dreams of acquiring a real-life Tumbler—several of them were built for filming—might never come to fruition, this kit is a far more affordable and mega-sweet back-up plan. It joins other recent lust-inducing Lego kits like the classic Mini Cooper, VW T1 camper van, and gigantic Mercedes Unimog on our perpetual gift wish list.
