Republic heavy speeder.

Post by wrecks on Thu May 14, 2009 1:20 am

This is my second entry into the speeder contest. The Republic heavy speeder was a large box shaped speeder, used for taking out large vehicles or aircraft. It was armed with two heavy blaseters (top front), four missle tubes(front), an anti-aircraft bubble turret and two small blaster turrets that come out the sides. Also, the heavy speeder has a unique feature, it's metal is magnatized to repell any metal that comes near it. This worked creat for knocking down droids, but kept the clones weapons away, and if it went near somthing metal that was hevier than it, it would be pushed away. There's two hatches on the sides and two large jets on the back.

EDIT: I know it looks too big to be a speeder, maybe a hovertank, but check out the definition of speeder:Any repulsorlift vehicle designed for planetary operations.

Very nice wrecks! You greebled pretty well and I like the design. The only thing I would do is take the wheel of the side, don't really think it fits there.

It is a good build, but there is some box look to it.

This would make a sick tank, but it doesn't work as a speeder. On another note, the retractable blaster cannons make a win.

Don't like the retraceble laser guns. When they're out, they look rally skimmy and awkward. However, I love the rest of it. Boxes can work, and in this case, they did. Nice job!

FACEPALM!!!!

They made a bunch in the 90's for the western sets. I have a couple somewhere.

About the 'speeder' I'm just gonna say I don't like it so I don't get a ban. Because all this is, is a block with two windshields. Work on angles, more greebs, and a better idea then we'll talk. Wink

Not bad, but it's a bit boxy, try to smoothen it out or make it thinner.

Though I like the extendable gun on the side.

I love it. The bubble turret in the back, the pop out cannons, the shape as a whole, they all do it for me. Great work!

It's a repulsorspeeder, akin to that of what luke was driving in ANH. Well done, well done, simply love the fold-out turret mechanism, and while yes they could be improved, it's a good job regardless.

Not one of your best creations so far, but also not your worst one so far. I like how the clones are protected under teh window, but it really doesn't seem like a real speeder to me. It looks like a small ship that can carry clones with those awesome guns.
