I'm normally not a Star Wars MOCer, but the Podracer contest over on FBTB was just too fun to resist. So, I thought I would combine a podracer with one of my favorite themes: Pirates, and this came out.  :laugh:

Speeding in from the tropical islands comes the Coconut Pod, ready for the big race!

Very nice, Erdy. I particularly like the circular shape of the engines, they must have been hard to get right. What minifigure is that in the in the driver's seat?  :tongue:  Good luck in the contest.

Good job, Erdbeereis. Love the overall design of it, as it still remains a pod wile not at all looking SW-ish.

That is a very unique MoC, combining two of the greatest themes. That is simply amazing, especially the engines.
