Ghostbuster wagons FTW! And in chibi? In a podracer format?! You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

I like your Royal Guard podracer. I did no research at all so I just used red and black pieces. I think yours looks great! :D
You have my bow! (as soon as I get it)

Man, this thread is filled with so much awesome. The amount of effort everyone seems to have put into their creations is astonishing. I'm almost glad I didn't have time to create a submission. I would've gotten steamrolled for sure. Great work people!

The Great Pharaoh is back ! But he is not alone... He came with his devoted friends... two camels: Sharifa and Chafulumisa. One of the details that distinguish them is the tail color: Sharifa’s tail is red while Chafulumisa’s is blue. Their names means in egyptian language ‘Respected’ (Sharifa) and ‘Fast’ (Chafulumisa). But these are not just simple camels... these are Space Camels which can fly at high-speed (we don’t know their speed secret... only the Pharaoh knows it).
Now that he is back, the Pharaoh has created his Podracer (from his pyramid which has on top his precious sarcophagus decorated with gems. His camel friends assure the high-speed that the Pharaoh needs) so that he can participate at races, win them and regain his glory.

sparkart, I just realized what the pod is in your creation...hit me like a ton of bricks! (no pun intended) That is spectacular. I fully endorse MrCRskater's compliment.

If we could zoom in far enough on Lady Liberty's crown, I'm sure we could see four guys with unlicensed nuclear accelerators on their backs. XD Well done sir, well done.

Meet the Molecular Meteor!

When first hearing about the races several years back, the Hazardous Materials guy went to his friend the Construction Worker hoping to collaborate about the biggest, burliest racer out there (so he wouldn't get dinged up by other pushy racers). Unfortunately for Hazmat Guy, he didn't realize that having the biggest pods would mean more thrust around the track... which leads to him freaking out at the controls.

Aaaaand I just realized you can barely, if at all, see the wheels that create the rear of the pods. Yellow is great on black... but black just really isn't good on black... lol.

To view the things a little closer, here's a link to the gallery.
This is the first MOC I've been truly proud of. I've tried making Pod Racers in previous years in hopes of attempting to enter, but this time I actually succeeded in making something I liked.

Here is my entry.

Burke the Butcher's Podracer by Impending.Doom, on Flickr

The Butcher by Impending.Doom, on Flickr

Burke the Butcher enters FBTB's 2012 Podracer Contest. His engines are modified meat grinders and arent intended for just livestock. They were rigged to consume any leading competitor and grind them into scraps. The engines also release the remains intending to hit any trailing racers to let them know not to pull ahead.
