There are some really groovy podracer designs in here.
Here's my entry for the contest. This is my first MOC so I still have a lot to learn about "design", but I think I communicated my idea okay. It's supposed to look like a Tie Fighter from the front.
The idea behind this pod is that Darth Vader still has an itch to go podracing so whenever Palpatine is busy somewhere he takes his Podracer Advanced to the nearest event. He based the design of the pod on his personal fighter, the Tie Advanced x1. It's powered by mini ion engines and revamped solar arrays that channel full power to the engines as temperatures rise to critical levels.
I have to work on my photography skills, please don't be too harsh. Flickr
