C-H0R5 Advanced Speeder

Post by legorevolution on Fri Aug 28, 2009 5:21 am

The C-H0R5 Advanced Speeder was designed and developed for bounty hunter Shoktus Osus in 20 BBY. As the Clone Wars raged on, both sides of the torn Republic turned towards hired assassins to take care of business that could not be traced back to them. Shoktus used the highly maneuverable and deadly C-H0R5 to find his targets and collect his bounty.

The speeder was built for the LSB Speeder Bike Contest on flickr. Influences in the design came from seahorses (thus the name), podraces, west coast choppers, and Cole Blaq.

The engines look a little fishy don't they? Wink

My try at an artistic front shot.

The C-H0R5 in a box! Rules in the contest require the speeder to fit within the dimensions of 6 studs high, 6 studs wide, and 16 studs long...

... and it fits!

Cool. Very cool. Excellent design and I'm impressed with how you've used minifigure parts for its construction, particularly Jango's helmet/jetpack for the front section.

The minifig is nicely done as well, as long as you look at it from the front...

The head... Not so good.

The speeder is really awesome though! I love the use of the Jango helmet. Great piece usage on this.

The head is awesome (cept for the back but that can't be helped).

That speeder is pure win! Great piece usage all around!

NPU on an epic scale. Lovin' the fishies, BTW.

@Gerrard: You might not believe this, but LOTS of other people have entires of the same caliber. And they were the first entries, so I don't think you ever had a chance.

EDIT: I just got the name! Razz Very clever.

His head seems to remind me of Davy Jones. The speeder is, as usual with you, excellent. My favorite part about it is the engines, very cool design. Overall, amazing job. (*sigh* as usual Wink )

PD, did you even see my entry? Plus, it was meant to be a joke as there are almost 100 entries.

Thanks guys, glad you like it! I know the kitfisto face on the back looks a little odd, but you just have to ignore it. Wink

That's......Fishtacular. It looks like you're going to win the contest, as usual.
You could just brasso of the back of the head, because you love customization.

The fish are excellent, the helmet is excellent (great thing to have around if you've an abundance of similarly colored pieces for this EXPRESS reason Razz ), the side detailing is excellent. The novelty of this creation is astounding, and while those forward running flaps do look a little flimsy, I really don't think it will matter.

This is another brilliant example at what you can do with enough time, enough brainpower and creativity, and plenty of pieces to chose from!

Bravo, Legorev!

Thanks all and thanks Sial! I really don't have that many pieces though, I think I've told you this before! You just have to be creative, and try things out! Wink Oh yes, those Jango backpacks don't have any printing on them, and yes they are official lego pieces.

As usual Revo, you're work is nothing short of amazing. The building techiques utalized are wonderful, and the MOC itself is stunning as always, good work. Smile And yeah, the Kit Fisto head backwards does look a bit.......odd, but it works if you don't pay too much attention to it. Wink Blue Arc
