Lego’s latest Batmobile Tumbler is an imposing hunk of Bat-Lego, made from 2049 bricks

Does it come in black?

Having previously made Batfans giddy with massive Burtonmobile and Batwing sets, Lego has wisely skipped over the Joel Schumacher era for its latest gigantic take on a Dark Knight vehicle. Lego DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler (£209.99, available 1 November) instead has you construct the jet black military vehicle that debuted in Batman Begins – from a whopping 2049 bricks. Described in the original film’s script like a “cross between a Lamborghini Countach and a Humvee”, this is an imposing, heavily armoured beast – all angry angles and absurdly chunky wheels compared to the sleek form of Burton-era fare. As ever, you get a couple of amusingly out of scale minifigs – Batman and Joker – and a stand to plonk the completed set on that allows admiration from every angle. And should you fancy something more minifig–sized (and wallet-friendly), a £34.99 Tumbler set is also on the way, ready for you to dismantle and then rebuild it, just the way it was, brick for brick.
