Bandai Batmobile Tumbler iPhone 5S Case

The iPhone 5S case that you’re about to see is a strong candidate for at least two awards: one for having a never seen before design, and the other one for being probably the most impractical smartphone case in the world.

Christopher Nolan’s trilogy has come to an end what in Hollywood terms is ages ago, but companies or individuals are still paying tribute by making Batman Tumbler golf carts or this Bandai Batmobile Tumbler iPhone 5S case. The latter has such an incredible design that I’m starting to envy Apple users for getting this kind of accessories.

Made by Bandai, a famous Japanese toymaker, the Crazy Case Tumbler iPhone 5 bumper will definitely protect the smartphone like no other case. After like, penetrating the Batmobile’s armor is not that easy, is it?

Sturdiness is definitely one of the things that helps this iPhone case stand apart, but unfortunately, impracticality is the other one. Smartphones have gotten slimmer and slimmer over the past few years, and when we’re looking for a case to protect our precious companions, we’re leaving the bulky ones aside. And this is how the Bandai Batmobile Tumbler iPhone 5 case gives birth to a dilemma. Do you want a case that looks good and protects your phone, or do you want one that fits in your pocket while not increasing the weight of the phone sevenfold.

The case was designed in such a manner that it does not obstruct the iPhone’s ports. In fact, these ports have now become part of the design. More precisely, the microphone and Lightning port holes now look as if they were part of the exhaust system. Clever design, huh? On top of that, the case has moving parts. You might have noticed that the Tumbler’s wheels can be readjusted. The case also comes with its own flashlight, in case the iPhone’s LED flash is not good enough for you. And that particular flashlight reveals the Bat signal when projected on a wall. Four more LEDs were added to the Tumbler’s body for an even more spectacular effect.

Pre-orders for the Batmobile Tumbler iPhone 5 case end on January 7, so if you want one, you will have to pay 5,775 yen (roughly $55) plus shipping on the Bandai website. According to the manufacturer, shipping will start in March.
