Recommended Posts

Please Judge this Freebuild

Edit: AHHH! Just realized a part fell off before the photoshoot...Please imagine its there! Or Imagine it broke in a fight, and that's what the Imperial Patrol is for :tongue:

The story so far:

First Day Aboard the Avenger

At The Table-Before The Storm

Rescue Mission

Reassigned

Eliminating The Competition

Target Practice

“Here we go again…”

Evac Escape

A Quick Transaction

"Black Sunshine"

After having missions involving the Black Sun, Beltar finally clocked in enough hours to get some alone time on his home, Coruscant. Beltar’s grandfather was a wealthy political figure in the Republic, but he had got involved in various crime syndicates over the years, he left a bulk of his possessions to his son, including a nearly mint BNTLY-1948 air speeder, one of the rarest, commonly used among the Skull Crime Syndicate back in the day, Beltar assumed this is how this one came into his possession…But first, he had to stop at his old friends, Mak’s, garage shop to pick her up…

Mak: Back on Coruscant, eh old friend? I kept ‘er in the best condition I could…Was a trouble to find the parts you was missin’

Beltar: Ha! Good to see you too, always nervous, weren’t you. I’ll give you a check for all those pieces you had to acquire later, the salary of a medical officer in the empire at my level isn’t the best! Also…how many times did you taker her for a spin Mak…? I know you would…

Mak: Your salary is probably better than mine down here, in these parts… And uh… Perhaps more than once… It’s a long story, but the thing is that she’s alright right now…! I was surprised that it was in the good condition that you brought it to me in!

Beltar: Yea, well my good ol’ grandad loved his air speeders. Sometimes more than us. But, he got involved in some bad people, after the air speeder was shot down, he was killed, by a Corouscant gang, but surprisingly the thing was left in okay condition!

Mak: You know the gang’s used to call these babies Black Sunshine’s back in the day, my father told me about it. Because apparently the Black Sun controlled the BNTLY Speeder Inc, and they sold modified ones to their partners, and rigged ones to their rivals…

Beltar: I guess I learn something new every day, whether it be how to save a life or something about the Sun’s. Anyways, I should get going, vacations don’t come often!

Mak: Aight ol friend! Perhaps later, I can buy you a drink! Same time as before?

Beltar: Of course!

Later than day while Beltar went for a ride on some familiar streets that he hasn’t seen since he joined the academy… He drove by the Falcon district, near the Eagle Bar… Something clicked in Beltar’s head. This area was controlled by the Skull Crime Syndicate, and the crate he shipped earlier this month…had the symbol of the Eagle Bar, a known hangout of the Skull C.S… As he noticed this, he spotted an air speeder out of the corner of his eye, and of course, they noticed him. And another light went off in his head, he then remembered he had seen one of them while delivering the crate, he must’ve been there to spy on the Imperials… “Gotta warn Sarge later,” Beltar muttered under his breath. And suddenly, shots fired, a chase started. Beltar knew he had to lose the Skull’s somehow, since the BNTLY-1942 was one of the smallest models built from BNYLY Speeders Inc., he saw a slight chance of fitting into the street, and he could get into alleys easier this way…

Beltar: “Just a little lower, come on…”

21497733443_74501d7f5f_z.jpg

“COME ON BOYS, SHOOT HIM! YOUR AIMS IS WORSE THAN STORMIES!”

“Yea, yea, yea, bossman, we got this!”

“You’re all idiots….Keep firing…”

“Aw, almost got him! Watch out for pedestrians though!”

“SERIOUSLY? WE CAN”T LET HIM GET AWAY!”

“Why bossman?”

“That’s the Imp I saw on N.E.! And that’s Mr. Beltar’s BNTLY somehom!….Ha, coincidences! Lovely, lovely thing!”

"Yea! We'll get 'im!"

“Run! Run for our lives!”

“Move! Outta my way!”

“No respect for bystanders!”

“THAT VIOLATES 11 CODES!”

Sarge: “Wait. Is that Beltar?”

21930946518_eb10eb0be6_z.jpg

“Maybe Imperials? Gotta run!”

Shortly after this event, Beltar managed to lose the Skull’s through a tight alley maze, the engines where almost shot, and Beltar knew he was going to have to get this speeder fixed again. Hopefully the Skull’s don’t come looking for Mak’s Garage…or Beltar…

Overview Minus Speeders

This time, I tried to write far more than my other freebuild, because that wasn’t the best build or story wise at all. I also get better photographs! Anyways, hope you liked the build and story! C and C welcome!

Cool little speeders! I like the "hot rod" look of the one Beltar is driving, and your minifig posing is excellent throughout - it gives the scene a very dynamic feel.

I like your story a lot! And your build is great too. Parts of it look a little unfinished, but the speeders make up for it.

Looks spectacular!

Thanks!

Thanks Lucas! Posing minifigs is a fun thing for me to do for some reason..

Love the speeders!

Thanks Tryus! I really focused on those for weird angles and sizes based off of vintage cars.

Thanks too, Josh! Yeah, I thought that too, but I couldn't find some good greebly (or other) parts to fit in those spots that look odd... But I think it was good enough for me to complement those speeders. (It actually is unfinished as there is that one missing Tile that fell off! :laugh: )
