Finally got some cash and was able to make progress on my batcave.
so far it is just under 700 pieces. The windows to the right of the computer are display cases that will someday have a bat suit, robin suit, and a nightwing suit. Above the display cases I want to make a weapons display area. I have yet to design it though. In the middle of the platform I want to have a sloped ramp running down to a car/heli-pad that can rotate. For the pad I really like the design that was used in the first lego batcave, so I'll probably just copy it.This has been a fun but pricey project. I am at $100 for 700 bricks. I used a lot of pricey slope and plate bricks in my design. I think it looks sleek though.
I took a stab at a cool weapons dispay today. The problem I new I would have and was quickly confirmed. much of anything above the display cases quickly detracts from the asthetics of the cave structure. I think I may redesign the back wall inside the display cases so I can put weapons inside with the suits that will be displayed. Above the case I may just put a stretcher.If anyone has any cool ideas I am open to suggestions.
Thanks for the praise everyone.
It may take a good while before this project is fully finished. The structural elements should be done within a month. The custom figs that is another matter. I also want to add led lighting which may be a ways down the road. Truth is I like having a big project I can work on for long stretches of time.
Hey Thomas you have given me inspiration to convert my latest creation into something (or someone) you have mentioned in your description. Thanks :). Donít worry it is not going to compete with your creation.
Oh this is looking VERY interesting! I really like the style you're building with and that you have closed off the rear wall of the Batcave. The Lego batcave sets look to open to me-they need a rock wall at the back. Keep going mate!
