We’ve all seen the totally awesome “tumbler” Batmobile from Batman Begins (seen above in its camo version before Bruce Wayne Bat-ified it), and we all wanted one of our own. One guy decided he wanted to build it as a computer.
The Bat Blog has pictures of an amazing computer case mod made out of a tumbler RC car. The guy who built it put it up for sale on eBay after showing it off at computer shows. You can check out the auction here. The auction ends July 20th, two days after The Dark Knight hits theaters.
The limited-edition Blu-ray gift set includes Blu-Ray high-def exclusive content: The Dark Knight Prologue, plus movie cash to see The Dark Knight in theaters (a $7.50 value), 32-page exclusive Dark Knight Prologue book, 16-page comic book adaptation of the first 6 minutes of The Dark Knight, a Batman Begins lenticular, and five collectible post cards.
It will be released on July 8th, a mere ten days before The Dark Knight premieres. You can also preorder it now.
I’m a big fan of Forbes’ fictional lists, such as their “Wealthiest Fictional Characters” list. Their latest one is The Fastest Fictional Cars.
Included on the list are the Batmobile (the Batman Begins version, at right) at #3 and the Mach Five (from Speed Racer) at #2.

It’s not a secret that we, here at MovieSnobs, think Christian Bale is the freakin’ man. It gave me great pleasure today to see on IMDb, that it’s his 34th birthday.
Happy birthday, Batman. And thank you for yet another year of fantastic movies, well-played characters, and non-celebrity like antics. Let’s hope this year brings you some award nominations, from something other than our MovieSnobs Snobbies.
