I was recently inspired by some lovely MOCs over on TBB. Several MOCs have popped up using these molded minifigure stands from the Lego Disney Toy Story Army Men set (7595: Army Men on Patrol).

Very nice...
It reminds me of Batman's Batcycle from 'The Dark Knight'
Very good use of parts... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Really interesting and clever use of bricks.
Great design, looks like it really could have been Mr. Bobas Speeder.
I would have loved it if he actually had one.

That's no speederbike...oh, yes it is, it's just kickass.  :laugh:

It's a very creative design, but more importantly, you have a printed Boba?  :cry_happy:

Shweet! I love the speederbike! I had no idea that anybody could actually put those stands to good use in Star Wars! People have done some innovative things with that piece, but the simplicity is just genius!

Now I have to go and put mine to work! I just bough the set for the Soldiers!

Perfect alternative use for those Minifigure stands. It helps create a very sleek overall shape for the speeder bike
