First of all if someone could completely change the title to Republic Mobile Command Speeder (MCS) as it has been completely updated!  Thank you

Pieces: Roughly 154

Back story- During the Great Clone Wars Jedi and Clone would work together to defeat the separatists.  During large land battles when vast amount of Clones would need to be controlled the MCS would act as a mobile command station as well as a taxi, being it well armed and well armored and of course speedy.  It was a center for contact between clones and Jedi and in emergencies used to get the wounded off the battlefield

If you dont mind I really would like to say that this looks like a pile of bricks on legs. I dont really like the whole shape of it IMO. But the idea is good, and improvements could really turn it around.

No I like the critique, I understand though, how do you think I could improve the shape?

I think you could use some wheels instead of legs, and then the shape could be different. so you could have a pilot in a small canopy in the front, and then the command center behind it or something like that.

Hmm, that I see, I think I could definitely work with something like that, I'm getting a few ideas now that could definitely improve it.  Maybe treads with a larger area yet still open. Thank you Natman8000

I am still open to other opinions though!

One more thing. Doing a mobile command center on a small scale is very tricky, so you might want to expand your pieces.

I understand, I'll think about that, the only thing is my pieces are limited and don't have to many, although that's what BrickLink is for :tongue:

I think that the shape looks like the head of a Tri-Droid and I suggest you could make the interior bigger and make more armor for the legs

Thank you all for the great critiques, I guess it's safe to call this a WIP as I have taken all of your suggestions and I now have a new design in mind that will hopefully improve this!  Thanks again!

You could start with a roof, and maybe a bigger interior space?

Still Mutilating Clones or making them better.  I dunno maybe you should ask them yourself?

Hmmm... looks like a scorpion with no legs to me :grin:

I think you should make the engines bigger because engines that seize couldnt push that ship. Its just too unfeasible to me  :wink:
