Cyborg Race-ship "Quicksilver"
He's silver and he's quick!
About this creation
Hello race fans! I recently stumbled across a superb edition to our asteroid racing family: Nate Bush's Bone Shark (nicknamed Barracuda, thank you Mr Young!):
http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/37131
Nate has not only captured the coolness and humour of cyborgian raceship design but he has also added some improvements and uped the quality over my first lukewarm efforts. Therefore, he has inspired me to design a new generation of raceships, taking my cue from his Bone Shark. Ladles and jellyspoons, I give you: Quicksilver! (named after a Pink Floyd song. >sigh<...Pink Floyd...)
When not at Hollywood premiers or lounging around his penthouse pool surrounded by bikini-clad models, Quicksilver can be found at the racetrack, trying to shave a few nanoseconds off his P.B. time. Some have called him the posterboy of asteroid field racing, and you'll get no arguement from him about that!










Full spread for a victory lap.

I still can't resist giving something a slight insecty look.

Walking mode. I've done away with land platforms as Nate did. Consider it evolution of the sport.

A variety of poses are possible. Swooshability factor is high (when the wife isn't looking...)







Looking to see who coming second...

Note the huge ball of Blu-tac to keep him on that cruddy stand!

















See you trackside fans!

Aside from an insectoid impression, I still associate something else when looking at these pictures: The way the head sits behind those round dishes somehow reminds me of an ancient chariot :-) Nice design :-)

wow, one of my favorites! Love the swooshabality! So what, if your wife thinks it is weird, she married a Lego-loving-geek, what is this to her? (please, take this as a joke, no offense intended. We are all Lego-loving-geeks just for being on this site, and proud of it). Anyways, I really love this. I like how all of it can change and be pose able. Excellent work.

Nice! In the picture with the description of being insectoid, it looks similar (in a good way) to one of my plastic gundam models (made by bandai).

Wow, cool. I have to agree with Keith though, this just screams satalite to me too.

Another great addition to your cyborg racing fleet. To bad this technology doesn't exist yet, as I could definitely see my head strapped on some rockets....

Thanks for mentioning me! Anyways, I think this is better than your other ones, and I like the posable wing and engine configuration. I think it looks best with the big wings swept backwards and the four smaller ones forward (third to last picture).
