This was one of the longest projects I ever worked on! I can blame my Senior year of high school for that, sadly. Anyway, despite this being a hassle, this was fun to explore as a little theme.
Each of the bikes (which are the key point of the round) have a specific look to them that os similar to the rider. The larget bike is my favorite, considering it is the most greebled, and has the cool gimmick of having a face when the front wheel splits. The second larget bike was yet another experiment of HF parts, and it all looks very nice, in my opinion. The tiny one might have been better, but I felt it was just right, and had enough character to it.
The riders were fun as well, however, I did not go into as much detail as I would normally. The main focus were the motorcycles, thus I didn't have to go amazing on the riders. However, despite them being more simplistic, they are honestly the funest little guys to play with. Also, in a similar fashion to the bikes, each rider has a distinc look, that gives them such personality. Either the greebling of the leader, the chains of the scavenger, or the goggles of the mechanic. The thing I might ave messed up in ware the porportions between rider and bike, I am not use to building vechilces, so I have little experince in the theme. Also, if may ask, yes, it was semi based off of Nijago skeletons. lol
*Note: Idea for the head of the leader goes to Gringat.*
I got a feeling that when Adam saw your entry, he felt it better to just not make any entry. I have nothing to criticize. Not only did you successfully pull of the hardest theme so far, you did it impressively! Bravo!
What to say... outstanding MOC, the best I saw this round and among the best builds in this contest. Presentation: meh. A bunch of pics in near-random order with no description until an overlarge chunk of text at the end. The page walked a fine thread between confusing and boring. Not that it matters, whith builds like those you could have been completely illiterate and you'd have still bagged the round :)
Outstanding entry. Not only you made some great vehicles, but also very nice pilots, and also managed to keep the consistence trough the group(both in colors and design). There are some minor flaws(like the bigger bike being a tad too wide), but nothing is perfect... To be honest,even if your opponent didn't give up, it would be hard to top this. Guess you pass.
Totally amazing mate! Love all of them so much! I'm really tempted to make my own biker gang now... eh what the heck, future project ftw :D Anyway, amazing work! I'm loving all the riders and all the bikes! They are just works of art! Oh by the way, I think we need to figure out new times of skype, because this morning kinda failed :P Anyway, looking forward to another great chat, and more great MOC's from you!

I get an adrenaline rush whenever I see you posted a new MOC. They are that awesome.
I'm gonna be honest, but you probably met your match if your against Adam Toh, he's good. But then again, so are you. As you probably know, my name's Chopperskull, and I love Choppers (bikes) so that gives me extra reason to comment. I see inspiration from Lego ninjago. The first bike (bulky one) is my favorite because it's got tons of greebles, and amazing uses of Lego system. The second and last bikes are good, but in my opinion, they look too exaggerated. All the characters are amazingly well done, and unique. I love everything you did here, and i'm rooting for you (sorry for my lack of faith in you last round) and I must give you a 5/5
Whoa. Those are beast bikes! The first is by far may fav though. :D The bikers are great too. I would have liked to see one with a big gut though. XD BTW, when are you going to post more of your Self-MOCs?
I love Lugnut's face! The bikes are fantastic. I know it's more dificult than it looks to create really great bikes, because I've tried. The variety of wheels are particullarly neat. Best of luck in the contest!
Good concept and mocs. Nijago skeletons, I true out you based them by listening to some Five Finger Death Punch. XD

good luck to both you and adam! i have to say those bikes look really great i can definitely see the ninjago inspiration. my favorite would have to be the little one. just because it has that little spike helmet like how i think a biker gang would look. again good luck to both you and adam
