UCS Xmas Landspeeder

14 posts in this topic

Hello there. :classic: I have just finished my entry for this marvelous contest and I must say I am quite happy with how it turned out. It's a UCS model of Santa's Landspeeder, the Snowflake I. The jolly old man uses this craft to deliver presents to the good children of the Star Wars universe. It features the latest in present delivery technology, comfortable seats for both Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and an elf-operated gift cannon.

Here's a top view which shows this vehicle's sleek, aerodynamic shape and snowflake decal.

A back view where you can see the engine's exhaust ports and the custom license plate.

Close-up of the gift cannon where an elf sits and shoots presents into the houses. It turns 360 degrees and can tilt up. The presents are fed to the cannon from inside the landspeeder. The design was inspired by the Phinneas & Ferb Christmas Special. Click here to view a reference pic.

Hope you like it. Sorry that the pics aren't up to my usual standard. I took them late at night. You can find more hi-res pics in this brickshelf folder.

Merry (late) Christmas and a happy new year! :classic:

Thanks lego-maniac.

Yes, it is pretty big. I wonder why no one else had the idea to make their landspeeder in a scale other than minifig scale. Oh well.

C'mon, I thought I had at least a chance of winning this time. :cry_sad:

Very nice design. I especially like the chairs and the windshield, although the turquoise seat in the back sticks out a little. Nce technique with the slops in front.

An excellent entry Oky!

You seemed the only one to think of building a big UCS speeder. :thumbup::sweet:

I really like the present shooter, that cartoon - Phinneas & Ferb, is quite funny sometimes. :laugh:

Good luck!

Wow, that really is special Oky. Superb details; the interior is really nice and the snowflake decal is spot-on. The elf operated cannon is great fun!

Well done and good luck.

Thanks for the nice comments, guys. :classic:

You still do. :wink: You have an excellent entry. Size matters not, remember? :yoda:

Thanks. I wanted the seat to be green, but this was the only green seat I had. Plus I thought it would add variety to the color scheme.

Nice entry Oky! :classic: I like the snowflake and the technique used for making the seats. However, I don't like that turquoise chair one bit! I think it would be much better with another brickbuilt one. Another thing would be some more green things all over and a bit of snow here and there.

Anyway, great job, and good luck! :thumbup:

Those engines turned out well after all... :tongue:
