Notes:
For this phase of the CABGOII, I was really short on time. I was on vacation for most of the time and it took me a really hard time to decide on what to choose. But I finally decided on 7128 Speeder Bikes.
For actually making the speeders, I looked around at all the official Lego speeders and took little hints from them on design, because I wanted one that was not only realistic, but also had playability. After three trys, I finally got a design I was happy with, although there is one thing that I was not able to get on no matter how hard I tried (See if you can figure it out).
And for the "tree" instead of making a humongous tree like in the movie, I wanted to go with a more SWU approach and have it be realistic, so I created a Cambylictus tree. But having a just plate with a tree wouldn't cut it. I thought the grass would make it "pop", if you will, and once again, make more realistic like in the movie.
And that's how I went about making the MOC. My little brother loves to play with it, and it does actually have around 160ish pieces or so.

If you like it, you can vote for it here (Although I do believe you have to be a guild member to get it). I'd really appreciate that. Wink

Thanks to everyone who voted for me (or didn't in certain cases), it's been a blast making this stuff for the contest. I can't believe I made it this far. Constructive criticism is always welcome, so if you think you would do something different, let me know.

Wish me luck!

P.S. By the way, the Darth Vader mosaic is all done, and even destroyed. It will be posted shortly. Wink

Hard to see what you did with the bikes. Maybe post a close up if you got one in the gallery.

I guess I like it. It's simple, but it gets the job done. I would buy it!

Nice speeder bikes, like how there's no 'bike' piece. The tree is nice too.

This is, as Rijulskywalker said, simple; but it's great and gets the job done. Smile

A bit late on this, don't you think you should be Dairy Queened? Razz

But this build isn't that good IMO. The bikes look like the ones from the original set and the tree needs more greeness. Wink

Oh my god! I was going to email a suggestion to the Lego company today to make a set like this! I love this! The reason being is I have a weak spot in me for scout troopers and speeder bikes Smile.

Check my location ATP. Wink

Meh, it's okay. It could be better. There's not much to improve on so much as redesign or drastically improve it.

Eh. It really isn't doing it for me. The speeders look like TLC's, and the tree is nothign new. Although the set it self is difficult to design, because of it simpleness.

It would be nice if you added more detail to the green plate but other then that it is fine.

I love the speeders. If this set were for sale I would definitely buy it. You even took the time to make sure the time to make sure that you made an accurate version of a canon tree!

Other than the fact that they are bulkier the speeders look like you use instructions.

Please don't post in topics older then 2 weeks. It bumps them up, it's much better and easier to have the newer MOCs at the top of the forum. -Tac
