Batman seems to have a tool for any situation. A few of the vehicles he owns include the Batmobile, the Batplane, the Batcopter, the Batpod, the Batskiboat, and the Batmissile. There is clearly a pattern. It is then easy to imagine that when Batman goes to Yosemite or Yellowstone he would bring along a Batcamper. This Lego MOC is the creation of Hoyin Lau. It is clearly based on the famous Volkswagen Camper Van. Not only is the camper black and yellow but it also features multiple bat detailing.
Just like the Batmobile in the Tim Burton films, this Batcamper can transform into something else. In this case a bulky mech style robot. With the new arms and legs this is truly an off-road vehicle.

For a little while now there have been rumors of an official Lego Scooby Doo theme for 2015. It certainly is not the most demanded theme, but Lego is trying its best to win over all our hearts. Everything is being timed for maximum exposure, with a new Scooby Doo TV show titled “Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!” premiering on Cartoon Network soon. The first official images from Lego are starting to be released. The most popular set will probably be the Mystery Machine (75902) which will retail at $29.99. This set features Shaggy, Scooby Doo, and Fred fighting off a zombie and evil tree. Scooby Doo is looking especially impressive, with some fine printing that puts most of the other Lego dogs to shame.
The current line up features 5 sets covering a good amount of the show: Mummy Museum Mystery (75900), Mystery Plane Adventures (75901), Mystery Machine (75902), Haunted Lighthouse (75903), and Mystery Mansion (75904). The whole gang will be represented in Minifigure form. Fred, Shaggy, Scooby-Doo, Daphne, and Velma. Hopefully we won’t need to purchase the whole theme to complete the team.
Interestingly, there will be a special Lego episode, probably animated as a 3D CGI cartoon…
“In another first, the Scooby Gang will be animated in LEGO form. In 2015, fans can look forward to a 22-minute LEGO special, featuring Scooby-Doo, and produced in partnership with Warner Bros. Animation. In addition, Warner Bros. Animation will also be producing made-for-video movie titles, which will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in the coming years.”
Lego has also been teasing Lego Scooby Doo across its social media this week:
If there was one theme I was not expecting to hear rumors that Lego would produce, its Scooby Doo. It seems that Lego has been working on a spooky theme, and now its seems an official Lego Scooby Doo theme is the top contender for this release. This new theme would be hitting shelves around May or June of 2015, and will consist of 4 sets. It seems that the iconic Mystery Van, a Haunted House, and two unknown sets are in the works. With the whole gang represented in Minifigure form. Fred, Shaggy, Scooby-Doo, Daphne, and Velma. Also expect to see a few of the monsters represented. I wonder if they will be regular Minifigures wearing costumes? Because that would be fun.
Hothbricks reported on a Lego Scooby Doo theme first. Their user Miniworld seems to be confirming rumors too: http://www.hothbricks.com/2014/11/rumeurs-2015-grande-roue-nouveau-theme/#comments
Originally, the Poison Pinto is a famous Hot Wheels based off of the 1979 Ford Pinto Van. It may also be known as The Thing. Lego builder Nathan Proudlove was recently challenged to rebuild this iconic car with Lego pieces. Mission accomplished. The Lego Poison Pinto features a spot-on lime green paint job, an exposed engine, custom decals, and redline tires. The end result is a very mean looking Pinto.
