I made this ages ago but never posted it. I made some changes recently so I thought I would put it up. I wanted a Batpod that was in scale with the 2005 Batmobile toys they made for Batman Begins, even though you can't fit the Movie Masters into the cockpit these Batmobiles are actual in scale with the Movie Master line - more so than the 5 inch line they produced them with. For reference have a look at set pictures with people and other vehicles next to the Tumbler on set. It is suprisingly not as large as it seems.

Anyway back on topic. The actual released Batpod wasn't in scale with the 2005 Tumblers and it was a bit on the large size not to mention rare and expensive so I decided to take a spare 2005 Tumbler I had and use its wheels and the body of the spring action "Stealth Launch Batmobile" Batpod they released with The Dark Knight and make a Batpod in scale with both the Movie Masters figures and the 2005 Tumblers. The wheels were very small on the Stealth Launch Batpod and I had to extend both of the axles and the overall body of it for the new wheels and to allow for figure to ride it. After some work the new wheels actual fit really well and when put next to the Batmobile it looks like the Batpod could easily have been produced as a toy along side it.

Not to waste the rest of the scrapped Batmobile from which I sourced the wheels I painted it black (it was a purple version) and then modded it to look like it had just been hit with the rocket launcher.

The custom is pictured with my custom Movie Masters Batman, the trashed tumbler, my modded (seated) Movie Masters Batman and my Urban street Diorama which I will probably post on here shortly.

Love the diaroma & the damaged tumbler. I like how you swap the wheels for the batpod. As for the batpod, yes the movie master version was a bit large but it still looks in scale where in this case, bats looks way too big for your batpod. Great job nonetheless!

That diorama is so good. I have always wanted to build myself a street scene.
