Amazing Remote Control Batman Tumbler

It's a golden time for quality toys right now, with the Back To The Future and Star Wars series both getting some serious love. But this one may be the coolest of the lot.

It's a 1/12 model of the famous Batman Tumbler made by Soap Studio and is fully controllable as a remote control vehicle via an iOS or Android App - and not just its wheels. You can change the LEDs on the vehicle, open and close the cockpit and alter the spoilers. There's a functioning turbo boost (adding 30% to the model's speed), featuring the sounds and lights from the films and there's a voice intercom.

As if that wasn't enough, there's a 480p camera embedded in the vehicle which can record footage of your cross-floor escapades in both daylight and night-vision mode.

Essentially, this has more features than an actual car.

It comes with a 6" Batman figure who can fit in the Tumbler and comes with various heads, hands, capes and other accessories. However, it will cost you - the deluxe pack, featuring everything, retails at HK$4,980 (£423) - you can buy it here.

In the meantime, watch the excellent demonstration video below and seriously consider part exchanging your own motor to get one.​
