Doom's New Ride!

This couldn't have been a better fit.I know Doom has a jet pack and his doombots fly as well,but sometimes you gotta bring out the big guns.I picked up this Star Wars snow speeder on a hunch and it paid off.The cool thing about it lies in its simplicity.It doesn't  necessarily look like a snow themed vehicle at all.Its generic design makes it perfect for re purposing.Dr.Doom fits in the drivers seat nicely without his cape on and even though this is a two seater ,you have the option of standing the passenger figure up to man the gun turret.



 
                                      The ship gives off that Doom vibe ,doesn't it?



                                           Another cool feature  is the removeable turret.


I suppose you could make this a vessel for good if you chose too.Cap and the crew look cool in the cockpit but not nearly as cool as Doom does imo.

 
No fantasticar here.It only seats two and Thing did not agree with the passenger seat.Although,i bet someone could modify a couple of these to make it work.Well,what do you guys think?

  1. Looks great! The grays of the speeder seem to work with Doom's color palette. It kinda' reminds me of the original Secret Wars comic from 1984-85. Some sort of cool vehicle he would have re-purposed on that alien world.
    A little too hi-tech for GI Joe figures?

  2. I thought the same thing ,Secret Wars.As far as Joes go ,I think Mercenary Wraith or Agent Helix would look great in this.Maybe some of the Predacons ,too.

  3. I don't even remember seeing this vehicle in Star Wars. Oh well... it looks great with Doom at the helm.

    1. It was in a deleted scene from Episode VII where the First Order gives chase of Finn and Rey as they are leaving Starkiller base - Just after Han dies. You can play this scene in Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens.
