SW Tournament R2: Brickdoctor vs. Rocky W. vs. Kly . Here's my entry for Round 2, Category: Podracers . Here's my entry for round two. I wanted to do something classic with this prequel category, so I chose the X-wing. The Falcon and Slave 1 wouldn't translate well into a podracer. The result of combining a concept X-wing and Sebulba's podracer was very pleasing, and I liked the use of Luke as the pilot, Yoda as Qui-Gon, and R2 and 3PO as a pit team. In keeping with the classic theme, I use all the old minifigs: white-domed R2, light pearl gold C-3PO, original Yoda, and yellow-faced Luke. I'm also really happy with the pod. The nose took forever to get right.

"No, no, no, no! That goes there, this goes here, you rust bucket! And don't you get all hyped up, either. The odds of a human winning a podrace are exactly 738,925 to 1."
"What do you mean 'I know things you don't'? I am a protocol droid. The odds of a utility droid possessing more knowledge than an AA-1 Verbobrain are exactly 3,793,237 to 1."
"I am not a mindless philosopher, you overweight blob of grease!"
"Think, do not. Feeeeel. Your instincts, use them."
"No! Do, or do not. There is no 'try' Ugh, can you not just say 'I will', as your father did?"
