What do you think of it being "nice"?
I think it looks good because I  :wub: how you used miniatured size TIE Fighter wings as the
wings here. Also, the stabalisers and engines looks good also.
Great imagination for making a  :vader: Podracer Advaned :thumbup:

I love it, because even though it's a podracer it still perfectly resembles the TIE advanced! Very good job!

Thanks for the feedback and compliments. I made a lot of changes but I was sure I wanted Tie wings to be a main feature of the engines. I'm glad they don't have to be perfectly symmetrical to make sense.  :wink:

WOW! That is an exalent example of turning the pod from Racer revenge to LEGO form! :sweet: Have you played that game because there is a pod-racer just like the one you built on there and it's piloted by Darth Vader himself.

Really?!  :hmpf_bad:  And here I was all happy that I hadn't seen this idea anywhere before.

I haven't played that game. I've only played the original Ep. 1 racer on N64.

Oh well, ignorance is bliss as they say.  :tongue:

Racer Revenge is the first thing I thought of when seeing this. The game is a very good source for seeing picture of the podracers, if you wanted to build original ones from the Boonta Eve Classic.

That's a very interesting concept, and somewhat parallel to the animated maquettes and such that other SW licensees do. If the LEGO license gets extended I could see LFL approving a similar line of sets (god forbid) as the amount of SW material dries up.

Great Pod.
It really has that Vader's TIE Advanced look and touch. :wub:
I am sure the Dark Lord would be more than happy to use this as his personal vehicle :thumbup:
