The LEGO Arkham Asylum From Batman Is A Reality!

An 18,000-piece LEGO set recreating the iconic Arkham Asylum from the DC Universe (comics and film), has been built in awe-inspiring fashion.  Australian builder “Forgotten Days” (on Flickr) spent over a year planning how to build the moc and about four months to actually build it.  The Lego Asylum has five rooms, seven prison cells, and LED lighting.  By the looks of the tour video (seen below), the builder added a number of accompanying characters, along with quite a bunch of baddies (this is a prison, remember?) including Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman, Joker, Penguin, Riddler, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Bane, Killer Croc, Two-Face, and Mr. Freeze.

Here’s a quote from the creator detailing the progression of this set to come to fruition:

After 1-2 years of planning and 3-4 months of building I have finally created Arkham Asylum in Lego. I feel this was the milestone for me as a builder as this is something I have wanted to build for years now and I am so happy with how it turned out, almost everything I wanted to put into the moc was built and included, some of my favourite parts of the Moc are, Killer Croc’s Cell (See Youtube Video) the Maximum Security Wing (Underground Cells), The whole interior turned out pretty good and I really like what happened the whole roof and clock part of the building. I’ve been building Batman mocs for 3 years now and I think this is my Best Batman Moc so far. It is also the biggest build I have ever made, with 18,000 pieces and standing at 52×98 studs wide and 55 bricks tall. This was built for Brickvention 2016, that took place last week in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been to Brickvention 5 times now, twice as an attendee and now three times as an exhibitor and this year I really tried to bring my A game with what I displayed. I brought Arkham as well as some other Mocs that I have not posted yet.”

Now take a look at this video of the set in its entirety…
