Personally, I think that I had an awesome idea with this one.  I was messing around with my minifigures trying to think of an entry when I thought that the Cheerleader's pom-poms would work wonderfully as the engines on a pod.  This is pretty much what I had in mind when I imagined the pod.  I'm not too sure I like how the cockpit turned out but it's not totally awful.  And boy did those binders give me a headache.  Suggestions are quite welcome! :sweet:

That's a fine pair of pom poms she's got there.  They'll make her go far!

Woka woka woka!

Great MOC :)

While your idea is not without merit, may I remind you that pom-poms are not very aerodynamic and that they would most certainly catch fire when "turned on".

Thus I cannot endorse this construction - it is simple too unrealistic and hazardous!

In other words, I like it!

Good job!  :thumbup:  :laugh:

Don't think... Darn I thought.

Looks great! The cockpit is a bit small, though.

:laugh: Oh man, that butchers one is great! The meat grinder engines, no fossil fuel for him! Environmentally friendly. The binders are a bit strange, however.

Originally, he had a LEGO beam that went across and the pigs were hanging off that but it was illegal, so he had to take it off. :wink:
