[MOC] Star Tours Starspeeder 3000
Posted 16 January 2011 - 05:36 PM
I would like to present you my version of the Starspeeder 3000 from the Star Tours ride at the Disney parks. I made this vehicl for the Lowlug Star wars MOC competition.
Star Tours is a ride at virtually all Disneyland parks and is based on Star Wars, where you make a flight through the universe in a flight simulator similar to the ones' professional pilots use.
A prototype from Lucasarts:
When you walk towards the ride you pass a lifesize model of a Starspeeder 3000, with on it's side quite some damage.
I based my MOC on this version:
Naturally the side doors open. The speeder has room for 16 travellers:
When you take a good look, you can see the driver of the vehicle, RX-24 (aka Rex):
What a lot of people do not know, however, is that the vehicle is actually piloted by someone else! Let's take a look...
It's George Lucas himself!
I also made the background setting of the model in the parks:
In the front you can see all the figures included in this MOC: George Lucas, two Star Tours employees, DL-X2 (security), RX-24 ('pilot'), G2-9T (repair droid), C-3PO (coordinator) and R2-D2 (navigation)
I made the sticker of the control panel myself. You can see a blueprint of the Starspeeder 3000:
A few more images of the background setting:
Well, everyone is ready to receive new passengers for the next flight!
From left to right: Vilmarh Grahrk (aka 'Villie'), Astraal Vao, Wall-E, EVE, Chewbacca (what a Wookie!), Boba Fett (Just escaped from the Sarlacc pit and now looking for a new ride) and a skieer who seems to be on his way to Hoth

Feedback is always welcome!

This is really awesome HJR.
You've really nailed the colour scheme and incorporated those blue lines amazingly well.

What a great MOC. The features, the overall look, the hangar,... . I'm stunned.
Or in other words:
A great choice for a MOC you've made. Very unique it feels

I love the line of new passengers and I laughed about Georgie who still wants control everything called Star Wars.
RX-24: "But Sir, I am the driver of this speeder!"
George Lucas: "Shut your mouth! I invented Star Wars, so I drive this beauty!"

I've never seen an MOC of this before and I think this one is great. The interior, the exterior, the background and the figures, it's all good stuff and good fun too.

But thats an Outstanding MOC! You nailed it, but it looks rtaher complicated to build.

Including with very beauty details (likewise the waiting zone with C-3PO and R2D2) and your very good technic style is the Star Tours Starspeeder very realistic.

I love this. It's absolutely fantastic! So many great details, and it looks just like the real thing. I like the blue stripes.
I hope everyone else loves it as much as I do, because I want to own this!
