Objective: Redesign an existing SWU Lego set.

So I picked this set:

Set # 7255: General Grievous Chase 2005

And this is what I came up with:

Title: The Wheel Bike Reborn

Very well done, Rook. Looks much better than the original.

Do the legs fold up so that the wheel can roll?

A beautiful rendition of a vehicle which appeared only briefly in the movies, and of course a great improvement over LEGO's version. Grievous with Exo-Force limbs are also a nice touch. Good job with Boga as well.

Are there any other sets you intend to redesign?

Truly very well done! I especially like your rendition of Grevious' Wheelbike. Great job, Rook! :thumbup:

That is an awesome redesign of the WheelBike Rook.

I never really liked the official one too much with the big printed transclear radar dishes.

Is it in scale of the "real" one?

Nice work! This (and the rest of the Obi vs. Grevious sequence) was my favorite in the movie. Iwas dissapoitned with the TLG version, I found it never really did justice to the scene, and could have been a lot better. This is fantastic. I really like the claws on the wheelbike. Keep it up!

AWESOME 'Rook' - I really like it, actually looks better than the original set from Lego themselves ! :grin:

Keep up the cool work and I'm a conformist! 'Rook' I'm a conformist! ! :sweet:

Beautiful. What I find most amazing is that you managed to make it so close to MF scale, and the teeth detail on the wheel is superb. :wub:

Slightly over scale, I believe, but I got as close as I could with this design. There’s other ways to make the wheel smaller but then the legs would probably be too weak to make it very playable.

Very well done, Rook. Looks much better than the original.

Not exactly the way they do in the movie. But they do fold up enough to get to roll if desied.

I agree with everyone else that the bike is awesome, but I like your changes toto Boga, the legs are thinner and look more accurate.

Fantastic job on the Wheelbike 'Rook'! Much much better than the official set. I also like how you modified the Boga and Grievous.

Ah so some of you were asking for a "legs up" shot. Here it is.

The Wheel Bike is excellent, not to mention that very few actually ever build one. :thumbup:
