Xenophobia Speeders

Post by Rook on Mon Jul 12, 2010 2:48 pm

Xenophobia Speeders


So I created these 2 little speeders to lock into the bottom of my Bounty Hunter ship for the FBTB MOC Madness Contest. However after they were complete they were too big. So I slapped some minifigures in, and playing off the xenophobia stickers that Lego is creating in their Space Police III theme, I came up with this:

PS: Sorry pictures are still a bit fuzzy I'm going to have to use a tripod a lot with this camera it looks like. Sad The auto flash seems to only work in very low lighting. Waaa!

Alien: “Dude that’s not me!?”
Rebel MP: “Yeah whatever. Save it for the Judge.”
Alien: “I’m not even the same species as him!”
Rebel MP: “Oh so you do know him!”
Alien: “No, I DON’T!”
Rebel MP: “I can tell by the tone of your voice that you’re hiding something.”
Alien: “I’m not hiding anything!”
Rebel MP: “That’s it you’re getting stripped searched. I’ll find whatever you’ve hidden!”
Alien: “You’re an idiot.”

Stupid Rebel idiot. The first one reminds me of the Rogue Shadow.

Wow good use of SNOT. The first one reminds me of the B-Wing at first glance. Smile

Great job Rook. Thumbs up

I really like the first design. But the red-tipped missile looks weird on that second design. :scratch:

That combination of those curved slope pieces, on the front, never gets old.
I also like how things just stick out in all directions on the first one.

For the second one, where did the stickers on the wings come from?

No idea. But I mainly buy sets, so probably off a SPIII set is my guess.

It's from the small Atlantis set with the shark. Smile

Nice speeders Rook and I like the first one the best as it looks aesthetically right. Good job.

Ok, thanks. An official cave racer? Somehow I missed that, I haven't bought an actual set in months(maybe all year even).

I don't like how the rocket is red, and the random brown pieces, I think you should stick with bley and light bley only. Wink

Yeah colors are same as "Ark of Darkness". And I was going a bit of a roughed up look in the minifigure and the ship. And therefore it carried over into the design of speeder(s). However I went with an external prison pod and put a speeder bike inside instead of a speeder on the outside.
