"This is our fourteenth year at San Diego Comic-Con and each year we see stronger enthusiasm coming from a growing audience of fans of all ages," said Michael McNally, senior brand relations director, LEGO Systems, in a press statement.

The set includes a detailed cockpit, moveable top wings, outsize rubber-tread rear wheels, and armored body.

Lego designed the set to measure 5 inches in high, 9 inches wide, and 15 inches long, according to Lego.

The set also comes with min-figurine versions of Batman and his supervillain nemesis the Joker.

The Tumbler is recommended for "children" ages 16 and up.

To purchase the Tumbler, be prepared to pay $199.99 in the U.S., $299.99 in Canada, and £159.99 in the UK, according to the brick maker.

The Tumbler, and other new Lego products can be found at Comic-Con this week at booth #2829 of the San Diego Convention Center, July 24-27.
