Lego Technic 42069 RC mod with Power Functions and SBrick

After building the 42069 Extreme Adventure set the next challenge was to motorize it.

Darth’s Angels

I’d like to share with you my biggest project so far – Darth’s Angels. I had the idea to create custom motorcycles for the Star Wars buildable figures ever since my son got his first set. As I realized the Stormtrooper fits perfectly on the 42036 Street Motorcycle, especially on the B model. That was the first step, and after a few weeks of building, refining and constructing the photo scene finally I managed to create the shot I imagined:

For this Lava shot I had to collect around ~6000 round plates and pins 🙂 I’ll share a separate post about the techniques used for the photo because it was quite a nice challenge 🙂

Three custom motorcycles were created for Darth Vader and the two Stormtroopers. I wanted to add an extra twist to the build so all of the motorcycles are using pieces only from specific sets.

Darth Vader’s bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42050 Drag Racer

First Stormtrooper bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42039 24 Hours Race Car

Second Stormtrooper bike – 42036 Street Motorcycle + 42045 Hydroplane Racer + 42047 Police Interceptor
