2019 marks the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton‘s 1989 Batman. While the Batman empire has amassed an impressive list of cinematic creations over the years, the 1989 version remains to be one of the most celebrated versions. Fans of the franchise love this particular film for a number of reasons. One of the reasons die-hard Batman fans hold the movie in high regard is the way Michael Keaton handled the titular character. According to them, Keaton’s portrayal perfectly captured the dark and foreboding aura of the character presented in the comics. Another reason fans love this movie? Batsman’s wheels. When the 1989 movie debuted Batmobile, fans collectively lost their minds. Now, in celebration of its tricennial anniversary, diehard fans can soon build their very own authentic-to-detail LEGO Batman model inspired by the 1989 film!
Tim Burton’s 1989 Batmobile was like something straight out of the mind of Bruce Wayne himself.
“Car plus iconic characters equals a supercool centerpiece!”
The Batman comics debuted 80 years ago and the Batmobile has been one of the greatest cars in comic book history ever since. Before the turbo-charged tanks, Batman was blazing through the streets of Gotham with a gorgeous black beast on wheels. Tim Burton’s rendition of the Batmobile was so on point with the caped crusader’s aesthetic that it’s been used as the basis design for all the more modern renditions throughout various media.
This 30th anniversary LEGO Batmobile is the most accurate replication of the superhero vehicle to date.

“The wraparound windshield was created for this model.”
LEGO has produced multiple Batmobile sets since they began putting out merchandise for the franchise in 2006. But they’ve certainly outdone themselves this time! This model is the first one to actually give the Dark Knight’s signature ride the replication it truly deserves.
The LEGO Batmobile packs a lot of features that’ll surely thrill any super fan. For starters, this model features a slide-open cockpit with a new-for-November-2019 wraparound windshield element.

Another authentic detail included in this build are two grappling hooks placed on either side of the mobile. Moreover, the wheel trims bear the image of the superhero’s logo. If you look closely, the front and back tires are differently designed!
