This officially-licensed 1966 Batmobile replica isn’t as destructive as the 21st century Batman’s Tumbler, but at least you can drive this one on the streets. Imagine riding this home for the holidays this year.

43,280-Brick LEGO Star Destroyer: 100% Awesome

This incredible LEGO Ventator-class Star Destroyer was made by Iomedes using 43,280 individual LEGO bricks. It’s a replica of the one originally made by Erik Varszegi, a model designer for LEGO, who built one back in 2005 to promote Star Wars Episode III. Unlike that one, this one doesn’t use any glue, screws, wood, or steel frames to hold it together.
