Toy News: UCS Lego Batman: Tumbler Unveiled

News from the San Diego Comic Con, where Lego have unveiled latest Ultimate Collectors Series set; The Tumbler. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a non-series UCS vehicle – I think the last one was also a Batmobile – and this is a pretty epic rendition of the iconic vehicle from the recent movie series. It even comes with a minifigure version of Health Ledgers Joker! It’s listed at $199 (UK price unknown as yet) and for release in September, but I suspect it will hit a lot of geek Xmas Lists!

Why so serious? Because Batman’s most intimidating Batmobile ever is getting the LEGO treatment.

A LEGO Tumbler, the Caped Crusader’s black armored vehicle of choice in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight movie trilogy, will be on display at Comic-Con this week beginning Wednesday. Following the pop-culture convention, which runs through July 27, the Tumbler toy (1,869 pieces, $199) goes on sale at LEGO stores and shop.LEGO.com in September.

Measuring 15 inches tall and 9 inches wide, the LEGO Tumbler has 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’re into character mini-figures, the stars of the set are a Christian Bale-styled Batman and the Joker, the first time Heath Ledger’s The Dark Knight take on the villain has appeared in LEGO form.
