The hovering speeder bike is a subject that has inspired many LEGO fan creators over the years, with many science fiction movies, comic books, and anime providing plenty of inspiration. Examples from popular culture often combine real-world mechanical bike features like windscreens, stickers, pedals and thrumming engines with fantastical fins, guns, and even bigger jet engines. Minifig scale versions are fairly common, but Djokson has opted to build a larger scale speeder bike complete with a sleek and racy rider.
Among the key details that get my heart racing are twisting flexible tubing running the length of the bike, connecting the front and rear engines to the fuel supply. Rubber tires turned inside out give the rider’s hips a smooth transition, and those boots made from just a few parts are a great visual focal point.
