i like the tumbler. i hope the batpod isn't the main vehicle. i like having the tumbler around.
Yep. I already point out the wheel on the Batpod is smaller than the Tumbler. Just because the toy Tumbler has the Batpod came out of it don't mean it will be the same in the movie. It just like many of the crappy variants of Batman on TDK toyline, since none of 'em will be in the movie. Again, how the hell can the Batpod be part of the Tumbler when the wheel size are different?
Well put. I too like the tumbler, but most importantly, batman should always have a batmobile. I cant imagine him without it and instead using the bike. Yeah, the pod is fun and all, but batman uses a car.
The tumbler better return in the third movie along with a plane.
so uh...i gotta say, after seeing the batpod move SIDEWAYS......i gotta say that it's easily the best batcycle i've ever seen.
That clip with batman & the Bat-Pod looks wicked .I can't wait to see this baby on Imax .
i definatly hate the idea of batman having any kind of motorcyle-like vehicle...
but the designers made it work.
but nothing beats the tumbler for me.... its too bad the batpod seems to be taking the tumblers place.. i prefer the tumbler anyday.
it also seems like a cheap way to make the same boring car chase scenes look new...when in reality its the same thing but now with a cycle.
I know that this dude made this comment 6 months ago but he's wrong.
The front wheels of the Tumbler and the wheels of the Batpod ARE the same size ...
and we now know why.
How do you know?
After watching the "There's A Batman" clip I love it even more and really love the sounds it makes.
The truth has been exposed about this.
It's already been said in one review I know of. Of course the legitimacy of that review has yet to be confirmed and there was photos of a set report that surfaced on here that stated the Batpod emerges from the Tumbler.
Umm, the tires and wheels from the BatPod and Tumbler are the same size. The tires are Sprint Car tires made by Hoosier.
Here is a good look at it,in this promo art
It's simply batass.
Man I love the way that thing moves and sounds, it is one badass vehicle!
My verdict is WTF are people going to explain how his cape doesn't get caught in the back wheel.
The length of the cape.
I thought there was a interview with Nolan that said they were scared about the cape at first, but it actually works in real life. The didn't have to CGI in a cape, thats the real deal.
I love how it sounds when its going through the tunnel/subway, making a whistling type noise, sounds cool.
Yeah, he mentions that they did shorten it a tad, but that the flowing cape is real.
I'll buy that.
Now I'm looking at the promo picture above and trying really hard to figure out how the things moves SIDEWAYS. I'm guessing that there is a long vertical shaft that goes through the main body of the pod, connecting the two wheels, so they rotate simultaneously. And the rear foot rest has a sensor that won't allow you to activate the rotation unless you lift your feet off of them.
I'm going to leave the room when I watch the documentaries and they show how the Batpod actually moves sideways in real life, and there was no CG.
ME TOO. Hahaha, it makes you go "WHOA WAIT A MINUTE" when you first see it.
Yup. As someone else said, it's a little shortened, but the cape is so light that the wind picks it right up once it reaches a few mph.
Okay guys I just watched the "Now theres a batman clip", now am I crazy or does the wheel actually turn side ways as well. When he blows out of that alleyway you see the lights spinning clockwise but I don't know if thats just my vision or some fancy bike trick or something. I haven't heard that it can do that, but thats what it looks like.
Yeah, I'm thinking that the point at which it spins sideways is at that tube/shaft (Red Arrow) and everything in front of that rotates at that point (Blue Area).
Still, that odd sideways rotation has gotta scratch up those guns when they hit the ground.
Eh ... Bruce can afford it.
