So, here is my entry for the LSWForums Round 5 of the Contest!
I present to you: "Death's Claw"!
Death Bringer was a very highly Skilled Bounty Hunter that lived during the time of the Yuuzhan Vong War.
He chose not to side with one side or the other, but rather to work for both sides. Which is how he became what he is.
His Vehicle: Death custom-made his vehicle using an old Naboo Speeder. Although, it is now much faster, and lighter than before.

Enjoy!
C&C Welcome!

Interesting build, TCO - I like your use of the pointed parts - gives it a unique touch and a menacing look at the same time. The pontoon-like modules on either side of the cockpit are interesting - is it designed to land on water? They remind me of the pontoons on a seaplane.

One thing that bothers me a bit about the build is that the cockpit looks open in the rear - non-airtight cockpits have always been a pet peeve of mine Very Happy: Neutral. Good luck in round 5!

Great job! I love the figure, mainly from the rubber band, but where did you get the green rubber band? :scratch:

Pretty good!

On my first look I thought "There goes first prize!" But now, on closer inspection, I'm not quite sure. The whole thing with using different sloping pieces on top of each other doesn't really work and there are waaaaaay too many studs showing.

Its pretty good, I think you just used too much color. There is grey, bley, tan, yellow, and brown. It is good, and I like the 'claws', but it would've been better if the whole ship was bley and grey, with yellow as a subcolor.

Bionicle sets, Bohrok to be exact.
I'll try to cover up a few more studs, and make the slopes better. Wink

I love the spiked back. Smile

But try to fill in the visible holes and gaps in the 3rd pic. Wink

Yes, a lot better by far. The new wings are a little too long for the body, though.

Thanks for the comments! I actually like the new spikes, to tell you the truth. Wink

Even without the spikes the wings are a little too big.

Love the shot of the back end. Still needs some work around the cockpit.

Would you like to clarify on that point? Which parts need work still?

By Naboo Speeder, do you mean Naboo Starfighter?
