The Dark Knight’s Batpod Is Up For Auction

the-dark-knights-batpod-up-for-auction

I firmly believe that The Dark Knight was one of the best movies ever made. Aside from the late Heath Ledger’s legendary performance, the movie was bursting with amazing elements, like its soundtrack, its complex but rich storyline, and it’s remarkable vehicles. One of these, the Batpod, is now up for auction. It’s one of six such bikes that were built for the film.

This incredible vehicle features a custom-made chassis with 31″ Hoosier racing tyres and a Honda 750 engine. Fibreglass body panels finished in metallic grey paint cover the bike’s engine and handlebars. A pair of cannon barrels made of plastic, resin and fibreglass are secured at the front of the vehicle, and a laser targeting unit is fitted above the right hand grip. A radiator and hydraulics are fitted behind the saddle, and the braking system is operated by controls on the left handle and the right pedal. Black foam padding is installed on the body, saddle and knee rests for comfort whilst riding.

Well-used on both productions, as well as in the promotion of the films as part of the Warner Bros. archive, the Batpod displays some wear to the body panels and some light corrosion on the chassis, with damage to the left gun mount as a result of use on se

We don’t expect you to buy this and ride it around or anything; we’re not even sure that’s legal. But for anyone looking to own a piece of movie history, the Batpod is expected to fetch somewhere around £60000 – £80000 ($80,000USD – $105,000USD).

DOOM Pewter Miniatures Should Sell Like Hotcakes

etc-doom-pewterminis-detail

Doom is one of those classic franchises that people just don’t seem to get enough of. So we’re not surprised to hear there’s a lot of demand for this set of 15 characters from the game, each one made out of pewter. You have all the usual suspects, like cyberdemon, Arch-vile, Hell Knight, cacodemon and more. The set comes in a plastic 10″ x 8″ x 3″ carrying case with an updated stamp on the bottom. We say updated because this happens to be the same set that was sold originally by Reaper Miniatures in the late 90’s, with each figurine made from the same molds. Unlike back then, you can now buy all 15 at once.

The kit is being sold by Bethesda, who bought idSoftware a while ago. They’re asking $200 for it, but you’re going to have to wait a bit until they’re back in stock.
