I can't believe this I let this vehicle mode gone under my radar!
It was a fine Saturday morning about few weeks ago that I decided to dismantle a bunch of my previous Transformers made from official LEGO sets, in hope to build newer ones obviously. The Transformer Submarine from set 31115 Space Mining Mech was one of the casualties.
It was chosen because the TF Submarine made from the set was a regression from its predecessor . In other words, I didn't like it.
While I was brainstorming what to build next , I noticed the tan curved plates in the pile of set 31115 parts, and my mind immediately thought of a Landspeeder. This small humble vehicle from Star Wars was never in my mind before. Perhaps I was influenced by the recently released official LEGO UCS* Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder (set 76341).
*That's Ultimate Collectors Series
Guess that's my cue. So I quickly got to work! And oh yes, the transparent dome windshield helped as well.
