Legendary Lego builder Paweł “Sariel” Kmiec is back with a remote control Technic Tumbler that will have Dark Knight fans begging the company to turn it into a real set. If crime has become an issue in your minifig town, justice has arrived.
With this model Sariel worked particularly hard to match the steering and suspension of the Tumblers created for the Dark Knight trilogy, which required extra care when designing the forward chassis to support the front wheels. The result is a Lego model that could almost pass for the real thing as it’s careening over other cars.
Unfortunately it’s still Lego, and the model behaves so realistically as the body rolls while cornering that it slowly starts to tear itself apart during manoeuvres. But remember, even Wayne Enterprises shelved development on the real Tumbler since they couldn’t perfect it. So on another level, this really is a perfect replica.
