It’s a truism that the 1966 George Barris-designed Batmobile is the coolest Bat-transportation (or any transportation, now that I think about it) ever, the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Bat-universe is also cool. It’s part Batmobile, part tank, and 100 percent bad-ass.
Well, guess what? Thanks to Warner Bros. and its relentless promotion of the forthcoming “The Dark Knight Rises” (July 20), you can design your own Tumbler online. I found this link over at Wired.com, and it’s as cool as you think it is. (Well, if you’re as nerdy as we are here at the Tower, anyway.)
You can customize as many Tumblers as you want to fill your “garage” using paint, design options and various backgrounds, and when you’re done? You can race the damn thing against other Tumblers online. Yep, the bad-assery knows no bounds (or would that be Bat-bad-assery?). The design tools work quite a bit like Adobe Photoshop, too, so you’ll probably find the interface fairly familiar.
I think I’m going to add guns to mine. Watch yourself, Bane. I’m coming for YOU, buddy.
