Hi all,
This is my first ever community build for SW and Eurobricks.
My build is simple, it is a re-creation of a scene in Episode 1 where young Anakin is in his backyard building and testing his podracer.

His podracer looks broken, can he win the upcoming race?

Looks nice! I like the use of the Mechanic's tool box. Not something you'd usually see in Star Wars.

Wow, that was fast! A bit too fast...
This is a nice scene, but it looks like you just threw a few minifigs and random pieces along with the official podracer on a baseplate. It would be good if you could add some more scenery such as the slumps. Also, a tan baseplate would be more suitable if you have one.
Certainly a funny presentation though. :thumbup:

I saw a toolbox in the movie so I was like "S6 Mechanic toolbox!". lol

That is the podracer from set 7962.

Thank you. :laugh: I will improve on it and see what I can do.

I am a new collector so I do not have a lot of spare bricks. I will see what I can do.
