[MOC] Dino-Pod Racer
Posted 20 March 2009 - 08:07 PM
This MOC (only my second MOC of any great note!) was created for the FBTB 2009 Podracer Challenge. I've called it the "Dino-Pod", for obvious reasons. I like to think it would chew up the track at great speed, whilst looking like it might chew up it's opposition on the way. Plus, if the teeth don't get you, the swinging tail just might ... comments welcome!
Further pictures here
This is actually version 2 of the MOC, as I wasn't happy with a couple of bits. I made a change to the front of the engines, because what I really wanted was the mouth to be open and more menacing ... I think I achieved that quite well :
I also really needed to do an update to the back on the engines. I must admit, in the first iteration, they were a bit rushed and I wasn't happy with them. So, here's the new version ... again, I think an improvement :
Here's a deeplinked photo of the tail ... it's entirely moveable, so can swipe a few opposition Pods out of the way in the race! :D
I'm quite pleased with it in the end. It's inspired me to create other things in the future, but I really need more parts and also more room to tinker! Oh well ... need a Lego room really and that means I need a bigger house! hehe ... COME ON A FURTHER HOUSING PRICE CRASH!! ;)

Common Sense is not so common
You can do anything, but not everything.
A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends.

At first the engines seem a bit bulky but later you realise it works relly well.
And the tail is even better. Very clever thinking on that one.
