Chevrolet unveiled a life-sized Batmobile made up of over 300,000 LEGOs in celebration of the upcoming animated-adventure flick, "The LEGO Batman Movie". Here's the build in all of its glory, via Batman-News... But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. The fact that this is a Batmobile helps seal the deal-as does the fact that it's tied to The Lego Batman Movie, which looks like one of the more bonkers films of 2017. In the meantime, this life-size Chevy Batmobile should keep fans happy for the next couple of weeks. Well, it measures a whopping 17 feet in length, and is a wee bit under 7 feet high. In total, it weighs in a just over 1,695 pounds (768 kilograms). "Numerous themes in 'The LEGO Batman Movie, ' like imagination, family and community, align perfectly with our Chevy brand values and add to the value of the partnership".

The life-size toy vehicle was built by LEGO Master Builders from Enfield, Connecticut. Designing the replica took 222 hours, with the Lego Master Builders team needing over 1,833 hours to complete its construction. The Lego Batmobile will also come in 12 different shades of black, as we all know how much Batman loves that color. (There's an interior aluminum frame made from 86 feet of tubing to stabilize the model).

Chevrolet's mock listing for the vehicle claims that it is equipped with Wi-Fi, has 20,000 horsepower and is available for the reasonable price of $48 million. As far as I can tell, Warner Bros. hasn't released that information as of yet.
