There’s something mighty impressive about building large masterpieces out of LEGO blocks. Combining the disparate parts to form a cohesive and recognizable whole is to be applauded. That said, this fantastic LEGO Batcave from Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey ranks above just about any of the other LEGO projects we’ve seen. Not only did it take over 20,000 blocks and more than 800 hours to complete, but the structure includes lights and motors for added detail.
It’s worth nothing that the project was first unveiled at Emerald City Comicon this year. Construction of the entire thing took twelve weeks, and the finished product weighs over 100 pounds. That’s a pretty hefty secret lair. Luckily, the Batcave separates into three distinct chunks for transport. Lugging the three parts around must be a painstakingly frustrating experience, but it’s probably totally worth it just to be able to say, “Hey, wanna see my Batcave?”
No. 1 | LEGO Batcave
Here's the entirety of the LEGO Batcave in all its glory.
No. 2 | Livingston & Hussey
Livingston, on the left, and Hussey look totally pleased with themselves. As they should.
No. 3 | LEGO Robin & LEGO Batboat
LEGO Robin gets stuck cleaning the LEGO Batboat. Seems about right.
No. 4 | Middle of LEGO Batcave
This part really ties the LEGO Batcave together.
No. 5 | LEGO Batmobile
The LEGO Batmobile has a rotor below its platform that allows it to spin. Fancy!
No. 6 | LEGO Batman & LEGO Alfred
LEGO Batman looks to be getting a refreshing drink from LEGO Alfred. Seems legit.
No. 7 | Poor Unfortunate Soul
How someone managed to die in the LEGO Batcave is anyone's guess.
No. 8 | LEGO Batman's Monitors
These monitors actually included printed images that were first manipulated in Photoshop. LEGO Batman doesn't get many channels.
No. 9 | LEGO Batcopter
The LEGO Batcopter is one of those things that honestly doesn't see much use, but it's nice to have it around just in case.
No. 10 | LEGO Batplane
The LEGO Batplane's lift actually has a motor inside that allows it to look as if it were about to launch.
