I've seen a lot of great Tumblers on MOC but only 1 with Batpod transformation. I took my "Lego" Tumbler figuring I could tweak it to fit a custom Batpod. It ended up looking like a mess so I re-started from ground zero and finally created what you see here. The only thing that's similar to Lego's Tumbler is the scale for minifigures, everything else is custom designed.
This set with instructions is available, see link at bottom of page.
Enjoy the video & comic strip below. Please rate & comment too, thanks!
Wow! this is the best Tumbler I have ever seen! I have tried to create my own that is based on this one but it is not nearly as good. your creations are amazing!
P.S. when will your website be up again?
Hi artifex. Im a relatively young builder that has a limited supply of parts and time, but i think id have some stuff you'd like to see, in particular, a tumbler with batpod transformation that utilizes the front two wheels, unlike your superb model. i will try to have it up by the 27th of october. thanks
I got this from you a while back and finally decided to build it. This is an amazing creation, the size, details and the use of the lego to create the body styling. It was a tedious build but well worth it. Thanks heaps.
This is superb! The only thing I can see is that, in the movie, doesn't the bat pod use two of the tumbler's wheels? I can understand how that would be difficult, but it would be totally awesome if you could work that in! Still great though!
Great creation! I love the Batpod transformation, the weapons hub, just... everything about it!
To the comment below mine:
I doubt he'll make instructions. But still, he COULD make instructions and sell them on eBay. He could make good money off of that because no one would buy his Tumbler, despite how cool it is.
All of the things you make are awesome. You are right, the safety pin IS handy, I accedentaly shot myself in the eye. Six wings are cool, if LEGO is going to post Batman merchandise, they should do it right!The transformation is cool! Could you post instructions for all your Dark Knight mocs? It would be nice!
Fantastic design, I really like how you've animated some of the scenes to show us the features of this creation. Nice work. -Dylan
I like it

"Current Lego Tumbler owners will really appreciate this. Chances are, they shot themselves accidentally many times before." Haha. So true.
Excelent job btw. Best Tumbler all over MOC. It's also the best editing job on MOC. I agree with the guy who wrote before me though about the wheels making up the Bat Pod.
Just for next time, I noticed there were many words with no "s" at the end of them.

Amazing. The only thing I noticed: wasn't the bat-pod made of the front wheels of the tumbler, not an extra hidden set? Still, outstanding. Crazy accurate, man.
=) I actually do have another design with the current Batpod body using the Tumbler front wheels. Just that the wheels is bigger than Batman minfig and throw off the balance, looking like Batman is riding on just 2 big wheels. But I might still post the pictures later on..

awwwwwhhh.....derectionssss. godly perfection. im not a big batmzan fan but i..i..i, GOTTA HAS ONE!!!but wait why is there a peg in the rockit luncher? were you shooting to many people?
It's hard to describe without owning a Lego's Tumbler, but you would need to look closely at Lego Tumbler's missile launcher. It's difficult to tilt the launcher upward without accidentally firing the missile & first time owning one, chances are the owner probably shot themselves many times. So for the custom Tumbler I added a safely peg.
