LEGO Batmobile might also please Technic fans

Today it was revealed 'Dark Knight' The Tumbler set 76023 [1]. It goes on sale at LEGO stores in September and it will be on display already  this week at SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con) beginning Wednesday.

The Tumbler includes 1.869 pieces and will sell for $199. It measures 15 inches length and 9 inches wide.
While the details are still unknown it looks fair to say it might have some kind of Technic structure to sustains its complex forms and details.


At least and even if it is not the case, this set might include enough to pleasure the most demanding Technic fans. We get some new pearl gold Technic wheel hubs (see at front wheels) and a couple of a new bulging tire type (81R x 44) with a racing car like tread design.
At the rear axis it includes four of the so called Unimog huge tires.

And now the presentation video.



Looking forward to see the new tires at some 2015 LEGO Technic race car...

While it looks impressive, I am not yet fully convinced.

From the pictures, it looks like it does not have functional steering, which is a huge letdown. But let's wait for the videos from SDCC.

@Balrog,

But I was thinking more about the new parts usage in other models or MOCs. :)

If you reduce the model to parts, it probably is superb ;)

But for me, a model in such a scale should provide accurate functions :)

I´ll second that. The Fork Lift,
Model No. 4 in 8082 Multi
Control Set from 1993
http://www.toysperiod.com/lego-set-reference/technic/universal-building-set/lego-8082-multi-control-set/


and the 8043 Motorized Excavator
http://brickset.com/sets/8043-1/Motorized-Excavator


should support the clam that
it can be done.


And why not make The Tumbler
a RC Model while at it?


Kind regards from

Yeah, at that size it could very well have some function besides being able to be pushed forwards and backwards. So, for me the set's value lies within the wheels (both front and back) and the black 3x11 panels used to hold the front wheels. I don't care about the golden hubs.
