Batmobile Stories October 16, 2015

It took about 500,000 LEGO bricks to put this life-size Batmobile together

We have certainly seen our fair share of impressive custom LEGO builds, from the transforming Optimus Prime to the 14,000 piece Starcraft replica. But when it comes to sheer scale, today’s life-size Batmobile is certainly going to be hard to top.

Well known LEGO designer Nathan Sawaya decided to use a good portion of that incredible collection of LEGO bricks you see in the image above to create a life-size Batmobile. Despite some interesting touches like the Batman logo rims and the flames from the rocket engine, it is the model’s massive foot-print that is most impressive.

The 18-foot long model is made up of over 500,000 LEGO bricks and weighs in at about 1,500 pounds. Sawaya worked directly with DC Entertainment on the design and spent around 3 months putting it together. Here are a few more close-ups:

Batmobile Stories February 3, 2015

Sometimes you need to sacrifice practicality for fashion. This new iPhone 6 case from Crazy Case epitomizes that sentiment. It is both one of the greatest and most ludicrous things we’ve ever seen.batmobile-iphone-6-case-1

Its design is pretty spot-on with the Tim Burton era Batmobile, but there’s no doubt its size will be unwieldy for most. Take a look in the top photo on the left, you’ll see that the iphone-6-batmobile-case-logoiPhone Home Button is covered by Batman’s belt. The photo on the right shows the rear of the case with the wheels popped out, which is used to expose the camera lens.

Of course this case looks absolutely fantastic, but it’s what’s under the hood that really got us giddy. It’s equipped with a mini projector that beams the Bat-Signal onto nearby surfaces. LEDs add life to the headlights and break lights.

So far we’ve only found it on Japanese sites for around $50 USD, but if you venture onto eBay there are a couple available at a premium.
