Quick question: Do microfigs on speeder bikes have to be sitting straight up, or can they be leaning forward slightly, as speeder bikers do?

they should be vertical, same reasoning as with pilots. I suppose in either case a slight tilt would be acceptable, but like 15° off vertical max.

XJ-6 Airspeeder

I submit the XJ-6 Airspeeder stolen by Anakin Skywalker and used to chase down the bounty hunter Zam Wesell after her assassination attempt on Padmé Amidala in Episode II.

Anakin Skywalker wrote:"Oh you know Master, I couldn't find a speeder that I really liked, with the open cockpit and the right speed capabilities… and then you know I had to get a really gonzo color…"

cmaddison: You need to replace that first picture with one featuring only the model you are entering, not a scene including it.

MotionOTheOcean: Special effects such as the motion blur in your second photo are not allowed. Please replace that pic.

I was going to say something but I didn't want to be the bearer of bad news, especially if I was wrong haha. That being said, in the issue of fairness, should a landspeeder be allowed a sand background?

Fixed. Apologies; I missed the word "scenery" in the things not allowed bullet point.
