Star Wars Custom Of The Week: Maz Mobile ("Mother") By PsyfoolRulez Customz

Recommended Posts

This week's custom is aย Maz Kanata Speederย byย PsyfoolRulez Customz
"My washing machine went kaput a few month's back due to a faulty motherboard....The repair guy took out the motherboard to try and repair it but to no avail....RIP washing machine..๐Ÿ˜ข....He passed me back the faulty motherboard which is inside a white plastic casing, I stared at it for a moment and immediately saw a Hovertank!....๐Ÿคฃ.....Since I've been building speeders for 6" figures recently, thought it would be interesting to convert this into a speeder instead of a Hovertank as it is too small for 6" figures....It already has the perfect shape and will just need a few greebly add-ons to change it into a Star Wars speeder.....The speeder will be quite small and thought it would be better suited for a smaller figure to ride in it....Maz Kanata seems like the right candidate!....I removed the motherboard and have a perfect empty plastic shell....Tried sitting her in (I didn't even have to cut a hole as there is already one) and looks just about right for her....Not sure how this will turn out, but let's see in about a week's time....


Started on the Maz Mobile aka "Mother" (due to its origin as a motherboard!)....Started off by cutting all the protruding clips and cut out a bigger seating area for Maz....then I proceeded to paste some 1mm PVC board to look like panels and also lined the interior of the cockpit....The PVC board also makes painting easier as the plastic is the type that doesnt really bond to paint well....Glued on a few Gundam/ random greeblies and placed 'crates/boxes' salvaged from the motherboard itself....The mini quad cannon is obviously from the Falcon....a spare DeAgostini Quad Cannon....After priming, I gave it a dark green paintjob (balance paint) which matches Maz's clothing....no weathering done yet....Still much more to do.....๐Ÿ˜…


Decided to have the Quad Cannon manned by a gunner and for now I'm using a 3.75" Quiggold peg-warmer figure....I'm heading towards a Jeep looking theme, especially with the green color scheme and mounted gun.....Kinda like the look and concept....I'll have to repaint/ mod Quiggold so he doesn't look too much like errr Quiggold, though I don't think people really knows who he is anyway....๐Ÿ˜….....I also did the padded seat with sound absorbing pads...works great and thanx to @d1dyr0m4n33 for giving me the idea! ๐Ÿ˜‰......Time to weather and detail paint this! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜


The speeder doesn't look quite right without any form of propulsion device, how does it move?....So I went to the dollar store to look for some 'Speeder thrusters'....lol.....Found some water hose connectors which looked the part and gave them a try.....So far, I have painted them in matt black/ chrome and attached them to the speeder.....will weather them up and detail with thin wires and cables....


Rusting in progress....Nothing fancy, just rust (Tamiya Weathering Master) applied with a cotton bud.....Try to spot/ identify the greeblies I used...๐Ÿ˜…....I will need to add some details under those front vents...looks too empty....๐Ÿ˜…


This speeder continue to evolve daily....I still see the motherboard casing shape and tried something to break up the shape further....Added a 'rack' to the front of the speeder for Maz to carry her supplies back to her Castle Cantina....Running a cantina on Takodana will definitely need lots of supply runs right?....The rack was actually a railing accessory from a Tech Deck set if you can recognize it....but to make sure it is not recognizable, I used Rey's cargo net to go over the rack to hold the cargo/ supplies in place.....I think this works and goes with Maz pretty well....you will also see some other subtle changes/additions throughout the build process....
