Why building a Star Wars landspeeder is definitely a good idea

After a holiday weekend binge-watching session of The Mandalorian, my desire for Star Wars vehicles in my garage has been rekindled. Luckily, YouTube mad fabricator Colin Furze created a video that gives me great hope. Watching him create a replica of Luke Skywalker’s X-34 landspeeder just makes me want to build my own—I could have the coolest car in the office parking garage.

I have a headache after watching that

Very talented guy.One note, if he continues to run a lathe with a tie on he won’t be around very long. Jim

Sorry, The entire season of Mandalorian was not released. One or two 35-40 min episodes is not binge watching. May the Force be with You.

@equipfinder - You have a (very important) point right there.

Maybe it’s a clip-on tie. I wore those in jr. high school mid-60s. I wish he spoke the king’s English rather than a Millwall sparrow’s.

Haha… “So little time.” He seems to have a LOT of time on his hands!

I have a Speeder Bike you can drive on the road in my garage. Also an AT-ST from The Last Jedi you can walk around in. Do those count? Check out Vintage Works on Facebook to see more if interested.

Very…
There are four episodes out. Does that = binge?

At least 12 hours and midnight = Binge

A friend of mine built a landspeeder out of a Ford Escort about 20 years ago—he sold it on eBay a few years later. Obviously much larger than this one being based on a car. Not sure I will ever have spare garage space for this type vehicle, but interesting project and nicely executed.

Awesome! He should have put 3 Pratt & Whitney jet engines in it. That would make it fly-literally! Agree completely on the short sleeve shirt and tie. Not a good look in it’s own right, let alone in a machine shop! That is not a clip on tie! 'Cmon man!
