Title: Hot Rod
Pieces: 192 pieces
Minfigure Count: 2
Background Information:
I was watching Attack of the Clones and something hit me as I watched the beginning chase scene: why hasn't LEGO produced more get-around speeders? All I ever see are walkers, battle tanks, starfighters... is Anikan supposed to drive to the grocery store in an AT-AT? I only know of maybe three personal vehicles produced by TLG! Why not create something that reflects this rage?

Description:
During the "Flower Power" age of the Clone Wars, it became imperative that the vehicle markets, which normally had big Y-Wing sales around fall, produce something that better related to the average customer. For some reason, your regular Coruscant citizen didn't want a ship with a gun poking out of the top and a Buzz-Droid attached for "playability." That's where the Hot Rod comes in...

"Anikan! I told you to buy something that was bulky, ugly, and had at least six legs and ten guns!"
"Sorry, master! This was... uh... the only one they had!"
"Nonsense - you bought this for the engine, didn't you?!"

I tried to build this with red instead of brown, but I didn't have any red slopes (and it looked terrible with rough bricks). I built this with the hope that others would join in with the Personal Vehicle Rebellion.

I hope I'm not breaking any rules - some rules confused me a little, and I'm a first time Star Wars MOCer. I think I've only made about three posts in this subforum, even. :cry_sad:

Great entry. The brown looks just as good as red would have.  :thumbup: I like your idea for the Personel Vehicle Rebellion.  :classic:

Thanks for the comments, guys. :classic:

I've taken some better images, so I'll upload them fast and switch out the ones in the post. I haven't changed the actual MOC...

Meh, it looks alright, but basically, it's just a landspeeder without a windshield and with a little engine thingie at the front. Not very original IMO. :sceptic:
I'm loving that screaming Obi Wan, though! :thumbup:  :laugh:

Shoot, Adam, looks like neither of us made it in time. I quite liked this little thing though, amazing use of SNOT building. the one thing I would suggest is putting a small windshield on there, and maybe lowering the top of the seats a stud. Other than that a solid MOC.

I think it would've done decent in the voting. Hey, maybe we can have our own little competition!  :laugh:  Or not. It wouldn't really be fair with just two contestants anyway.

Well, better luck next time for the both of us, eh? :wink:

Yeah, looks like we're in the same ditch here. :sad: I'm convinced that your vehicle would've won, too.

I've been tinkering around with a windshield, but I've yet to find something long enough that looks OK. I also had a rollcage there for a time, but I decided to remove it.

Thanks - though you're right, a two-person competition betwen already built vehicles wouldn't be quite exciting, fair, or admin-approved.
