With the Turbo Tank coming out this summer it gave me the idea to build a BARC speeder, so here it is.

And undeniably better!  That is one masterpiece, even if it isn't the most complex.   :wub:

Best BARC I've seen.
"Fly for the Empire"
"Build it Right, Make it Bite"

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

Your speeder has a better rear section on it, a like more true to shape I think.
Anyway great work '501st Commando' and keep on bricking ! :yoda:

You have used some really different techniques on the speeder but I think a bit of dark red could make it a whole lot better.
Keep up the good work!

A fantastic BARC 501st Commando!
You have used some really nice techniques there!
I like how you've put the battle droid arms as foot holds when the trooper gets down. :thumbup:
The rear is really nice.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I would have added more dark red, but I didn't have any 1x1 dark red tiles to put dark red where needed. :classic:

I love lego - Glad I found this epic forum!!! - it all started for me when I inadvertantly inherited loads - since then sites like toyBrickShop have had me hooked - till I found this awesome place, now I just spend hours looking at lego MOC's in absolute wonder!

Not bad, it reminds me of a speeder bike mixed with a Freeco speeder, and Dooku's speeder.

Very cool.

Hello!

A pretty nice speeder bike. :classic:

However, I am not so fond of the clip/clip-connections you used by cklicking a clip plate into a clip tile. I would have used the relatively new 1x2 plate with handle. :classic:

Looks very nice, though the 2x1 tiles for the fins seem a little plain to me, maybe those would look better with the printed tiles from the MINI X-Wing (in case you have that).

Other than that, great!

I think your speeder looks fantastic.  I like seeing these built with fairly generic pieces so you could build up an army of them without having to buy a lot of specific sets.   Nice work.
How many bricks can a Eurobrick brick, if a Eurobrick could brick bricks.
