Excuse the blurry cockpit picture. After many drafts of thinking of what minifigure pod to do, I finally had a striking inspiration for doing the iconic Chinese dragons that you see in parades and movies.

Enjoy!

Interesting idea, is there a reason why the dragons are different colors or did you just run out of bricks?

This is great! The pod is a little drab, but has a striking resemblance to an MTT. Those dragon engines more than make up for it, though. It looks like they're actually flying through the air. Well done. One thing you could do, if you have any Ninjago dragons. Take one of the flags and attach it behind the samurai. Much like samurai did when going into battle.

Well done Jack! :thumbup: I really like how the Chinese dragon engines give the podracer an overall oriental look, even if it isn't automatically related to the Japanese Samurai. :tongue:
