We've seen a handful of clever Lego interpretations of the Tumbler from Batman, but this one takes the cake. Not only is it remote controlled, but it also packs in all of the features we love from the movie-going machine. The builder specifically engineered the front suspension and steering mechanism to work like the real deal, and the super-soft suspension setup means there's all kinds of body roll around corners. Out back, this Lego Tumbler works in a live axle set up and a spinning thruster lit by an LED. Swoon.
We do have a few concerns about the design's longevity, though. The creator says that the suspension has so much flex that the RC Tumbler will actually start to break apart over time, dropping plates and components as it drives. Check it out in the video below for yourself.
