I'll join the flood of podracer MOCs from FBTB's contest. Mine is for the Zombie.

The Zombie is from a planet where an accident in a top-secret research lab has gone horribly wrong and turned everyone into living dead. This podracer was built by one of the survivors out of an abandoned truck and parts of the facility which caused the apocalypse, in order to escape the hordes of zombies. Unfortunately, he was attacked by the zombies as he was putting the finishing touches on it and is now a zombie himself. He has entered the podraces with the motif of killing (and consuming) as many racers as possible.

I hope you like it. I will be sending this in, so expect this at the FBTB booth during Star Wars days at Legoland California. I just might go there myself, so perhaps you'll even see me there as well. :sweet:

Oh, and good luck to my competitors. :wink: There have been many excellent entries!

Wow! This is awesome! I love everything. The junker truck pod is killer. The engines are packed with cool details. Way to go.

This MOC is brilliant! I love all of those little details everywhere!
The mouse is mightier than the Wampa, just as the pen is mightier than the sword.

This is cool! I don’t know why, but I’m reminded of the grave digger monster truck. Maybe it’s those menacing claws. Great entry!

Like what I said in the blog post, this podracer entry has the high quality of MOCing we've come to expect from you Oky - from the nicely-thought concept to the seamless transformation in brickbuild. And no, you don't have to 'shake up' your building style as we're enjoying every part of your creations. :wink: Keep up the excellent builds and best of luck in the contest! :thumbup:
