1992 Movie Batmobile (4-Wide)

My 4-wide version of the Batmobile as seen in the 1992 Tim Burton Movie “Batman Returns” including some extra functions…

As I had to wait for some parts to arrive, I had some time for a little redesign of my new 4-wide Batmobile after posting my preview. I’ve changed the shape of the roof section and the rear bat wings to get closer to the original.

Left side view: I love these new black 45 deg wedges with the cutout…

Rear right view: Afterburner on!

Front view: That’s a big air intake for that turbine.

And now the quiz question for the Tim Burton Batman movie fans: What’s the main difference between the 1989 and the 1992 Batmobile?

Let’s go! …

… 1 …

… 2 …

… 3 …

… Tadaa! – The Batmissile!

Front view: Better get away!

Rear view: Just like the cops in the movie saw it ;-))

Whoosh!

A little turn to the left …

… and a little turn to the right.

Nice side effect: The 4 wheel steering works really well …

… and the “parking mode”, too ;-))

The transformation of the axles: Batmobile mode …

… and Batmissile mode.

Detail view of the axles. The rigid tubes are like custom made 3mm bars :-))

And the “money shot”…

So this is my 4-wide LEGO Burton Batmobile including a 2-wide Batmissile. I hope you like it :-))

Update October 1, 2012:
New “bat wings” on the rear end of the Batmobile.

And there is the Batmissile.

Batmobile Tumbler V1.2 (4-Wide)

An update for my 4-wide tumbler with a new front, new flaps on the rear end and a camouflage version.

After some other projects now it’s time for a 4-wide, again. I already finished an intermediate version in MOCtober but then I was busy with NnoVVember, the CS Pocket Money Contest and some more models that had been waiting to be posted…

Well here it is, Version 1.2 of my 4-wide Tumbler, and
– TADAA –
This time I made a camouflage version, too :-))

It was very hard to find all the needed parts in tan or reddish brown. I made seven (!) BrickLink orders until I had all of the parts I needed. The most difficult parts to get were the tan side panels. I could have bought a small LEGO set for the money I paid for these. But they look so cool! ;-))

Some changes on the front: The Tumbler now has the double front windows and the “nose” section looking a lot more like the original. I had the idea to use the large tile from Chris Rogers’ Tumbler. His Tumbler is bigger, but the look is very similar.


And a little change on the rear end: The hinge plates I used for the 1×2 flaps on the previous versions didn’t exist in tan or brown, so I looked for a new way to build them. The new ones are even more flexible, they now can tilt and turn a few degrees.

Side view: Mainly the changes on the front stand out.

The camouflage version only, it’s the model from “Batman Begins”:

“Does it come in black?” – Of course, it does! ;-))

This is V1.2 of my 4-wide Lego Tumbler Batmobile.
I hope you like it :-))

DeLorean Time Machine (4-Wide) with Hover Mode

A 4-wide version of the DeLorean time machine with hover mode as seen in the “Back to the Future” movies with Michael J. Fox.

Believe it or not, this one has been around on MOCpages for one month without getting noticed ;-)). Where? On this photo!

This is like a mix between my 4-wide DeLorean with “normal” wheels and my 5-wide one with hover mode. I had thought about a 4-wide with hover mode for a very long time. Then I gave up and built the 5-wide instead. Ironically the solution was quite easy, just a small step away from the 5-wide.

Enough words, here are some photos:
Left front view, doors closed.

Doors open

The interior is just the same as on the first 4-wide. You can see some more photos of it here.

Time for the hover mode:1, …

… 2, …

… 3 – Tadaa!

The “money shot”: This is how it works.

Time for another set of wheels…

I really like these ones!

The car looks cool, but it can’t fly now :-((

This is my 4-wide LEGO DeLorean time machine with hover mode. I hope you like it! :-))
