Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada, USA for another round of Friday Night Fights! Tonight we head down to the streets for some good old fashioned cyber-racing with speed bikes! Let’s go to the tale of the tape.
In the black corner we have F@bz with his Honda RZR:
In the red corner we have Devid and his Akira bike:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this bout by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Yellow Brick Road edition, Team Mayo wins 7-5 ! Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
So hard. I’m really bugs by the hat in honda is impossible as street bike head gear and he should have a sword.h
Akira is well done but a bit blocky and common.
I’m also a sucker for naked bikes.
but, Akira did well and thats why he’s here.
Akira is iconic. The Honda is ridiculously and fabulously inspired. The cape for a seat is POW! Mind blowing piece usage. Honda gets my vote.
I’ve seen better akira bikes (including, in my opinion, mine, even if this sounds arrogant ) , so I’ll have to side for the Honda.
I’m gonna go with the Honda.
Gotta give it to F@bz because A that’s hands and minifig claws down a better build, B, Wooo another Akira bike, how original *rolls eyes*, and C, cause I follow F@bz and he’s a nice guy. :D
Basically everything that Dave said.
I’m going with the Honda, it’s the seat piece usage that wins for me.
This is not even a competition. Honda is in a completely different category of building (and gets my vote).
It appears that the Kaneda mini fig fits on the bike, making it playable. If so, that’s really cool. I love LEGO builds that are minifig functional.
But style points are off the chart for the RZR. Then again, when aren’t style points off the charts whenever F@bz builds with LEGO. F@bz is a masterful concept artist with an inspired knowledge of LEGO pieces and how they fit together.
Vote goes to Honda RZR
The Honda (black) looks more like a technical bike and is well done, but for some reason I’m more attracted the Akira (red) bike.
My vote goes to the Akira.
I’m not familiar with the source material for either of these (if there is any) but something about the Akira just turns me off. Maybe it’s the wimpy-looking minifig. I ditto Fred’s comment about the hat, but overall it’s just a much… very-er rider. The Akira guy isn’t very at all. So my vote goes to F@bs.
@Anonymous Bob. The Akira bike is based of the 1988 film of the same name. The bike was a very prolific part of the entire series. I asked F@bz if his bike referenced anything, and he said it didn’t. So one is a direct copy while the other is just a concept piece.
F@bz does that sinister look well. I vote Honda RZR.
