Default My Tumbler progress

Thought some of you would like to see some recent progress shots on my tumbler, built from scratch in my garage. I owe thanks to a lot of you for all the great pics. Am going to build my own batpod as well. Thanks to all.

I want $10 million for the rest of my life.

How do you get parts, specifically the body panels and external components? Do you provide sketches to someone? Have you contacted WB? They might be interested in this and who knows you could wind up getting interviewed for a special feature on the DVD or something.

Does it come in black?

...sorry, somebody had to.

Seriously, ridiculously, absurdly amazing.

I wish I had the skill and patience to take on a project like this. I've never even been able to see an entire Lego set through to completion.

Nice work. Seen plenty of your stuff before and it's great quality. Your Begins suit looks great and the likeness of Christoper Reeve Superman sculpt is awesome. How much does making something like the Begins suit set you back?

Here's a side shot in my driveway. Still got a few things to build, put on. a couple of small corrections. Am basically pretty happy. No, not building this to sell. You wouldn't want to sell this if you had one, believe me. It's a once in a lifetime project.
I did this alone, no help. I have found with other things in the past that if you have help, the help often does not get it(parts) right, and you have to do it over 95% of the time, plus I like to work alone. All parts are scratch built, cept' tires, rims, brakes, engine, etc.. meaning all bodyparts, brackets, just about everything external on the car. Yes, I will do a batpod, and TDK suit for myself. I love building this stuff.
