I am Boba Fett, I thought about doing that a long time ago, and your version looks awesome!!!! Very nicely done!

Excellent job on the concept TIE again!

And man, that mini-Sandcrawler is an awesome mini-rig too! :mrgreen:

We don't have to include speeders, but I did finish this one last night! It's crazy how much lint shows up on it. LOL.

I made this speeder over the past few days, with a few different possible configurations.

Those speeders look great!

I think we can include them since we voted for vehices AND mini rigs.

Here's one I wasn't planning for this contest but wound up making anyway.

Rey's Speeder Mod
I cut out the mesh and replaced it with an onion bag. I also created the small bag from hockey tape and a garlic mesh-bag. I also painted a few coats of different paints to weather the speeder.

While under contract to Black Sun, Dri Ruskelt dons a Mercenary Skimmer Body-Rig and flies above the landscape of the moon Rori, keeping an eye on the Kobola Spice Mine.

Some really nice entries so far. Here is my first entry (and hopefully not the last)

Rebel Assault Speeder To aid in their fight against Imperial forces, the Rebel Alliance will often modify regular vehicles into combat worthy craft. One such example is the Rebel Assault Speeder. The RAS started out as a simple "civilian" security patrol speeder. It has since been upgraded in both offensive and defensive capabilities. Much of the original cargo capacity has been lost due to the upgrade of engines and the addition of a rear facing turret. It is used mainly in hit and fade attacks against Imperial facilities. While it has no problems going up against lighter and smaller Imperial craft, it will avoid engagements with AT-AT's and Juggernauts.

The RAS is simply modified Y-Wing Scout Bomber. I found one on clearance at Target for $7.49 (70% off). For that price I couldn't pass it up. At first I thought about making it a ship but then I found out the engines pop right off. Without them it looked like a speeder of some sort. I added the projectile firing chin guns from an AT-ST for extra firepower.

Everything posted so far is very cool! Is the contest for any vehicles, or just small mini-rig types? I've got a couple vehicle projects going for this, and might have to bail on one to finish the other. First time working on vehicle customs.

^ JawaKing, my understanding is both vechiels and mini-rigs are good for this round.

Yep, mini rig can be defined by the customizer.

At first I thought DarthAthapy's submission was a hover tank mini rig. Could definitely see it with a different paint scheme... almost Kenner like

But love everyone's work! Awesome!

I was aiming for the First Order Heavy Assault Walker we got a quick glimpse of on StarKiller Base, but think it looks more like the evolutionary step between an AT-TE and an AT-AT.
