Last week, we reported on a so-called “Tumbler Tour” that’s taking place throughout this summer. Warner Bros. is driving the Tumbler (aka the Batmobile) and the Bat-Pod (aka that thing Catwoman rides) across the country and stopping at a number of cities along the way in anticipation of the July 20th release of The Dark Knight Rises. The second stop on the Tumbler Tour just so happened to be my acceptable lovely hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and a friend of mine sent over a number of images of said Batman vehicles.
We’ve got some pretty close-up looks of both modes of Mr. Wayne’s transportation, so hit the jump to take a look. If you plan on making the trek to San Diego this year for Comic-Con, you’ll be able to check out the Tumbler and Bat-Pod yourself as the tour is planning a stop at the Nerd Fest 2012.
