Nah. The coolest guy ever is the guy responsible for the sculpt of my torso armor, who not only sculpted, molded, and cast his own Batsuit fit to his body mold, but also built his own full size, real, working, drivable Tumbler, from scratch.

It's parked in his garage up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I've got to get up there sometime to get a passenger ride in it.

Is he allowed to drive it?

It's driveable, yes, but the interior needs work. Last I heard he was installing the roll cage and monitors for the rear cameras.

There are numerous reasons a car like this would never be road legal. Off the top of my head:

- Front is exposed wheels, not a bumper
- It's too wide
- No turn signals, brake lights, etc.
- No mirrors, rear windows, or way to see out the back. I don't think rear cameras qualify for visibility requirements
- No license plate or place to affix one
- Huge flaming afterburner

Of course police will give you special permits if you want to drive it in a parade or some event. It's not hard to get a police escort. And from what he says, whenever he takes it anywhere cops LOVE it. But I don't think it's the sort of thing you take to the supermarket.

You said that the suit was made from urethane? Does it need anything else or is that the only material used?

The cowl and torso armor is urethane. The armor is a bit higher shore than the cowl, so it's thicker, heavier and holds up better. The armor is mounted to a neoprene undersuit, similar to a wetsuit but custom. Gauntlets are resin, boots are leather with rubber soles (like any boot).

Fantastic collection, Sir!

You have done a marvelous job in constructing the cabinet, and the prop collection you've gathered over the years is astonishing.

That Bob Dullam is incredible. The costumes you commissioned from him are amazing, but the Tumbler he built is ever better!
Absolutely stupendous talent all around!
