[MOC] Star Tours Starspeeder 3000

Dear all,

I would like to present you my version of the Starspeeder 3000 from the Star Tours ride at the Disney parks. I made this vehicl for the Lowlug Star wars MOC competition.

Star Tours is a ride at virtually all Disneyland parks and is based on Star Wars, where you make a flight through the universe in a flight simulator similar to the ones' professional pilots use.

A prototype from Lucasarts:

When you walk towards the ride you pass a lifesize model of a Starspeeder 3000, with on it's side quite some damage.

I based my MOC on this version:

Naturally the side doors open. The speeder has room for 16 travellers:

When you take a good look, you can see the driver of the vehicle, RX-24 (aka Rex):

What a lot of people do not know, however, is that the vehicle is actually piloted by someone else! Let's take a look...

It's George Lucas himself!

I also made the background setting of the model in the parks:

In the front you can see all the figures included in this MOC: George Lucas, two Star Tours employees, DL-X2 (security), RX-24 ('pilot'), G2-9T (repair droid), C-3PO (coordinator) and R2-D2 (navigation)

I made the sticker of the control panel myself. You can see a blueprint of the Starspeeder 3000:

A few more images of the background setting:

Well, everyone is ready to receive new passengers for the next flight!

From left to right: Vilmarh Grahrk (aka 'Villie'), Astraal Vao, Wall-E, EVE, Chewbacca (what a Wookie!), Boba Fett (Just escaped from the Sarlacc pit and now looking for a new ride) and a skieer who seems to be on his way to Hoth :wink:

A very nice moc Hjr. :thumbup::classic:

I love the line of new passengers and I laughed about Georgie who still wants control everything called Star Wars.

RX-24: "But Sir, I am the driver of this speeder!"

George Lucas: "Shut your mouth! I invented Star Wars, so I drive this beauty!"

Fantastic work 'HJR' and may the brick be with you ! :yoda:

Seeing this just fills me with regret, I went to Disneyland Paris last year and the kids refused to go on with me. Of course, I'm an adult so I'm not going to go on on my own - I had my chance and I blew it :sadnew: ! Maybe I should be more strict with the kids?

I've never seen an MOC of this before and I think this one is great. The interior, the exterior, the background and the figures, it's all good stuff and good fun too.

I love that ship; have the toy version. Wish there was a LEGO one though. :hmpf_bad: Especially with LEGO's partnership with Disney and Lucsfilms...

But thats an Outstanding MOC! You nailed it, but it looks rtaher complicated to build. :laugh:

That is amazing! What a fantastic MOC. :blush:

Including with very beauty details (likewise the waiting zone with C-3PO and R2D2) and your very good technic style is the Star Tours Starspeeder very realistic. :thumbup:

I looked at the first post in this topic before I checked the latest reply. THEN I saw your MOC. Then I hoped the latest reply was a bump for CUUSOO, and hurrah! It is!

I love this. It's absolutely fantastic! So many great details, and it looks just like the real thing. I like the blue stripes.

I hope everyone else loves it as much as I do, because I want to own this!
