Our friends at Laughing Squid have lots of photos of this great Lego build of the Batcave. I like the dramatic lighting.

My heart is broken. My dog Molly has passed away.
All it needs is the giant penny!
SO COOL. Those guys are my heroes–especially with “carving” it out of LEGO bricks. SWEET.
In other news–is BB sticking to blowing up the photos beyond the point of pixelation in posts, or is this something being worked on?
Why does this post have the “kids” tag?
Do those guys look like they’ve copped to being adults yet?
There’s some fairly awesome work in the background, too. I can’t tell if that Imperial Star Destroyer is Lego or not, but it looks like a thing of beauty.
My 5 year-old would look at this and say “wow”. Then he’d put it in the bathtub to see if it floats …
I always wonder how they plan and build things like this. Do they build a blueprint ahead of time to know exactly what pieces they need? Or do they just buy $20,000 worth of LEGO and make it up as they go?
I’m actually more intrigued by the moon bus from 2001: A Space Odyssey over the left shoulder of the fellow on the right. That’s some serious obscure love for a film!
(Also, the Bat Cave is of course awesome)
Barbie’s Dream Lair.
Looks like it has the 60′s Bat-El Dorado parked downstairs.

More like Bruce Wayne Hussey!
The roof work is phenomenal. They’ve really used those angled pieces with brilliant effect.
The Batboat launching “canal” which breaks the frame wall is a lovely touch.
