About this creation
Well, I got bored awhile back and made a speeder bike out of droid parts and bley bits. That being said, none of the little tablescrap speeders can hold their own page, and are similiar enough that it'd be redundant, so they're all being lumped into one big mega page.

Let's start out with the first one posted:

I don't have a name for this one, so we'll call it Speeder A. I'm almost positive this is the largest of the group, but don't hold me accountable to that fact. Like every other fact I give you, it has a 25.6% chance of being wrong.


As you can see, this one has more of an emphasis on the droids and less focus on the bley.


The craft is dual engined, and is capable of atmospheric flight.


A quick little overview thingy for your viewing pleasure.


Our froggy pilot at the helm. Unlike many sensible designs, this one lacks a windscreen. At Mach-2, this is a real pain in the eyes. Literally. If you hit a bug, it'll probably tear your eye out. This is why helmets are such a good idea.


Another bizarre artsy shot. Well, it's really not all that bizarre, but it doesn'treally serve much purpose.


Head on! Apply Directly To the Forehead!


And now, we move on to Speeder B. I apologize for the lack of innovative or imaginative names, our marketing team was recently fired for an abundance of creativity.

We'll start off with a dynamic 3/4 shot. This should rope in your attention quite nicely, catching the eye with the sense of movement.


Then, once you're hooked, we'll continue to show off our craft, claiming it's better than its competitors. Then we'll torpedo our competitors building.
... What do you mean we can't torpedo a building?


Look, it's perfectly reasonable to torpedo a building. No, a bomb would not be easier. We have an excess of torpedos and we must be rid of them. No we cannot harras their shipping, we'll torpedo their headquarters!


I don't see what's so hard to understand about this. A torpedo is a bomb that goes underwater. If we drop it on land, it'll explode just the same as a bomb.


No, just no. Stop arguing with me on this. Now get out of the conference room. Geeze.
Add that man's house to the torpedo run.


*Ahem*, sorry about that. We often have these... Creative disputes. I believe you have an idea of why the marketing team was fired now. Anyways, we must press on!
Speeder C:

This is the design with the fewest shots. I didn't document it nearly well enough.


However, we did document an astounding new piece of technology added into this bike: The windscreen.


And with that short-lived beauty done for, we shall continue on to the final bike: Speeder D.

This is our favorite of the batch. It began as a VTOL project that was then downsized to a speederbike. We kept the giant fans because they're just so downright stylish.


The side of the craft is similiar to Speeder C, but features a tail-like structure and offers more support for the rest of the craft. Consider it an improved Speeder C in this respect.


Speeder D has a slighltly higher emphasis on the practical use of droid parts than it's predecessors (Except Speeder A) in the main structure, which has led to a slightly more stable structure.


However, the nose section is composed almost entirely of bley system parts. Still, it looks great.


And that's the end of my slightly schizophrenic speeder presentation! Thanks for bearing with me and stopping by! Please leave me a comment if you have the time!

Quoting Captain Connor Patterson Lol!
Rofl.
Quoting ODST serial 142-761 Nice work, those little bikes are outstanding.
Thanks!
Quoting A minute ago in the store across the road Now frogs dont have to hop! Nice speeders.
Of course they do. They just don't have to do it over long distances! Or short ones, if they're lazy.
Quoting Perry McShane great work! the concept of frogs not hopping everywhere is kind of hard to picture though... i know, maybe the frogs control their speeders by hopping!
What? That'd be silly. They control them like we do: Buttons, wheels, etc. Although if I'm going to call you out on that silliness, I should probably note the silliness of frogs having speeders in the first place...

Quoting Matt Pondiscio wow! Sick speeders! building speeders for a frog is definitely unique :D
Not entirely. While the speeders are unique the concept is not. Frogspace is a minor theme over on Flickr!
Quoting Histo Sci Haha, love 'em! Such a great theme.
Thanks! Frogscale is one of my absolute favorite themes. It's just so much fun!
Quoting Minifig Maniac Wow. These are...amazing. I love the one in the main pic. *drool* So much greebling!
Thank'ee! I do be aimin' t'please.
Quoting Waffles . "Head on, apply directly to the forehead!" Lol. I love your write ups. Great speeders too, my personal favorite is speeder B. ~Waff
And they love you too. I rather enjoy Speeder B myself.
Quoting Zylo Uxakah Apparently frogs scavenge parts from Battle Droids to create their vehicles. I bet the frogs trade their advanced technology with the Clone Troopers in exchange for spare Battle Droid parts! you evil mastermind!
What? Scavenge? Absurd! We merely recycle the bones of our enemies on occasion. It's usually for trophy vehicles and the like.
