It's been a long time since I posted any updates on my Lego 1966 Batcave so I thought that I'd update everybody.
The work has been slow but I'm getting there,I've attached a link to the youtube video.There's still a lot more computer gadgets to put in and eventually when you flip the bust back the bookcase will open automatically and close after you flip the bust back down.I also plan on having the secret entrance/exit open automatically when the Batmobile enters/exit the Batcave and the Batmobile will have lights in it.I want to say a BIG thank-you to member Jeremy Burke from Burke Studios for his help in making a lot of the signs and decals for the Batcave,he continues to help me when he has free time to make them.And a big shout out to Rob Klingberg from Brickstuff for helping me light the Batcave.If anybody has any suggestions what else should go in the Batcave feel free to post your thoughts as well as your thoughts on how it looks so far.I almost forgot to mention that The Batcave will eventually have sound in it.If you like the video on youtube give it a thumbs up,that will help my channel more votes on youtube.Thanks again for everybodys patience and I hope you enjoy and I look forward to everybodys comments.

I have that same (base) set, but the added details and all the lights really take it to the next level, bravo

And I love what your future plans have in store. Can’t wait to see it completed.
Glad I could help.

I was thinking about doing a Bat-Diamond from the episode "Marsha,Queen of Diamonds" but I'm having trouble figuring out the scale in Legos.Does everyone think that I should include it in my Batcave?It was only seen in the episode.I'd like to know what everyone thinks before I continue the build.

It's your Batcave, so if you dig that episode then sure, why not?

On a practical level, scaling it could be pretyy tricky. The platform that it was sitauted on had a pretty hefty footprint, so it's your call as to whether it's going to take up a whole chunk of space behind the Batmobile/obscure the Atomic Pile.
