About this creation
Sorry Everyone for being inactive, just started high school and have been caught up with stuff.
Anyways, I intend to come back with a bang, so i've made this.
The new minifig line is quite nice, and I picked up Alien (I later started to get sumo wrestlers and monkeys only, because little kids were feeling through the bags and picking out all the good ones) a few months ago. He's cool, but I found that he needed a ship to get away from those space police. So, I piled out every single purple piece I have and got to work. Without any diddle-daddle or further ado, I present Alien's Muscle Speeder.
Alien's Speeder is fairly medium sized, not a little bike, but not a Lunar Limo or Space Tanker. It is equipped with two plasma blasters for taking out obstacles and space police; and a Tow hook. You can see the exterior engine pumping every bit of energy it can into the speeder's repulsorlifts. It's not sleek and streamlined, but its powerful and gets the job done.
Front/Top View. Here's another view of the engine, and some flame decals. You can also see Alien in his comfy chair, and he looks happy enough.
Side view. Wings, Exaust funnel, Alien, flame decals, tubing and More engine.
Back view. This is where the tow hook is kept winched.
Heres the tow hook, swinging unfortunatly. Anyway, you can still see the shape of it, complete with a complementary purple piece slapped on.
Here we go. The string wraps round a number of times, and is kept straightened by the weight of the hook hanging.
The chair is removeable to allow acess to the driver. The chair isn't equipped with a parachute (Not that it would do anything in space or low pressure atmosphere) , so I guess its just a play feature. Maybe it could be a kamikaze thing.
The chair without the Minifig. I don't think they use leather in 3000 years time, but you never know.
The engine. Simple enough, methinks.
Now, one of the best parts of the ship. The back isn't a boot, although you'd probably need one. Its a....
BATTLE DAMAGE FEATURE! The armour cam come of with the slightest (deliberate/undeliberate) touch, to reveal some greebles n' stuff. It's quite simple, yet it's cool. Yeah.
Another view of the battle damage feature. Pressure gauge, oil dispenser, cooler, exaust grill, blah blah blah.
And if that wasn't good enough, then...
MORE (Lesser) BATTLE DAMAGE FEATURE!
And for the other side, guess what?
TEDIOUSLY MORE (Lesser) BATTLE DAMAGE FEATURE!
So, heres your average naked muscle speeder. Alien needs another stack of gold veeeeery soon.
Flames for added effect. Because flames tend to give added effect, right?
"Aargh! The ssssssspace polisssssssse are on my ssssssssslimy tail! Why did I have to come by myself in a $7 set? Why, TLC?"
"Thank goodness for the MOCpages."
You may have seen my updated version of my dry bounty hunter team. Slicky can use this fairly well, but I honestly don't really want him to exist anymore, for dignitys sake.
Byebye to the cameraman from Alien. He seems a pretty friendly fella, isn't he?
Really nice work. The flames do have added effect:)I love your comments and home page- very funny. Following your comments on my moc - i lost interest in Lego in my mid teens and have only just got back into building a few months ago (I'm 33 now!!) Unfortunatly life does get in the way of building but you can always make some time for it. Never too old. Happy building:)
