I like this one, Praiter Yed, especially the steering vanes. You're becoming quite the expert at these smaller sized builds.
Thanks Brickdoctor. MOC-ing takes me soo long I don't think I'd ever finish anything much bigger than a speeder
. Plus, I need to increase my Lego collection

Interesting use of the POP claws.

Great entry Praiter
I really like the detailing of this speederbike, especially the flag-ski-PoP claw combo in the front, as well as the 'normal biker leg positioning' of Vader (though I'm trying to figure out how you did that without using a standard motorcycle body piece). Best of luck in the contest!
Thanks KDM. The figure is sat on one of these.
I experimented with sliding the legs over the side of a panel
and although it could work, it put more strain on the legs than the door piece and didn't really suit my requirements. My aim was to get Vader's feet to touch the pedals and with the pedals angled upwards, they can - but it just looks wrong that way - so bit of a failure in that respect
Vader is now suffering severe cheek chafing from the saddle like a razor blade.
EDIT: Updated 1st post to include new pictures.
