Of course, when it comes to recommendations on daily necessities, such as fashion and fragrances or gadgets and accessories, Wingman has you covered. However, you can also rely on us to appeal to the part of you that just never wants to grow up; providing you with the latest news on every must-have toy. Over the past year we have loved being able to bring you giant guns that fire giant rubber bands, luxury foosball tables, and we’ve even (kind of) set a precedent for recommending killer LEGO sets, in the form of Citizen Brick’s incredible Breaking Bad meth lab set. Now, we’re back again, with the ridiculously cool, and super realistic, LEGO Batman Tumbler Set.
Primed and raring to go for a September release, this mammoth construction set is a totally different beast compared to the tiny 30-piece figures we made as children. Measured at 15 x 9 inches upon completion, this set comes direct from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight series, utilising all of its 1,869 pieces to mimic the original Tumbler exactly, accessible cockpit and all.
With an initial release price of $199 we’d be tempted to build this stunning creation just to then simply admire it from a distance, on a nice wide shelf, perhaps. But, if you want to get your money’s worth – with every set coming equipped with LEGO versions of both the Dark Knight and Heath Ledger’s Joker, as standard - you could always build yourself a mini-Gotham City and spend your nights fighting tiny villains. We won’t tell if you don’t.
The invitation to Stephen Hawking’s time travel party, which was held with the hope that someone from the future would make the effort to come back in to time to attend it.
On 28 June 2009, Hawking held the party, releasing the invitations after the party was held. Unfortunately, no time travelers showed up. “”I gave a party for time-travellers, but I didn’t send out the invitations until after the party. I sat there a long time, but no one came.”
