UCS Dark Knight Tumbler unveiled at Comic-Con
Lego has unveiled a UCS version of the Tumbler from the Dark Knight movie which will be on display at the San Diego Comic-Con. The set will consist of about 1869 pieces and will ship in September for $199 USD (Euro price not yet available). The tumbler features a full interior and a nameplate with Batman and Joker (first time Heath Ledger version) minifigs.
Remarkably, this set will be also very interesting for Technic fans, because it features new tyres on the front wheels, which have a bulgy desing and a thread style racing pattern. And in the back we have 4 “Unimog” wheels.
There aren’t a lot details known, but I wonder if the front features functional steering. From the pictures it doesn’t seem to work because the wheels can’t turn to the outside steering arm. If that is the case, it is a huge letdown, though this is a UCS model and mainly to be put on the shelf and not for rolling around.
All in all, this seems to be a well designed set. Hopefully, there will be some video footage soon. For now, we only have the pictures released from TLC. More pictures can be found on TBB’s Flickr.
