Outside of Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning performance, arguably the most iconic addition to the Batman universe thanks to Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight Trilogy was the Tumbler. The way Nolan created a functional, realistic Batmobile and continued to evolve it over the course of three films was just beyond cool. It was one of those things fans and non-fans alike wanted to own when they walked out of the movie. And while The Dark Knight Tumbler has been available in various different ways, it’s finally getting an Ultimate Collector’s Edition Lego.
Below, see images of the Ultimate Collectors Edition Dark Knight Tumbler Lego.
Lego will premiere the Dark Knight Tumbler Lego at San Diego Comic-Con, before releasing it September 1. It contains 1869 pieces and costs $199. Here are some images via USA Today.
