Re: V-35 landspeeder


 Here are a couple of captures to help you get the dimensions.
Image
 as you can see Luke's speeder right behind the v-35 with the full crew aboard and a stormtrooper to the left

Image

 and here is a shot of R2 and C3P0 standing right next to each other so you can get the size of 3P0 and compare that to the size of the engine core that sticks up and get the rest of the size of the ship in comparison.

 But 21 ft sounds good to me emoticon

Re: V-35 landspeeder


30 ft Lucas? Ouch, that's a long SOB for only holding 3 people and some cargo.

Here is a 30ft figure test:



Image


Seems like excessive headroom for a "family speeder" unless it is becoming more of an SUV/light truck concept instead of car.

So I say 21ft based on a figure test. Lucas says 30ft based on some bizarre, arcane math equation. emoticon

Need some help here, people. We need to agree on a length.

Re: V-35 landspeeder


well, it's arcane becaue I only had a couple of images to work from.


with the added images from Grtak, I have to revise the height again...which will adjust the overall dimension.

looks like including ground clearance it is about 4.5 feet tall.
so If we are going to keep the ground clearance at 9 inches, which I still think is reasonable,

so 54 inches overall - 9 inches for ground clearance = 45 inches.
45 inches = 138 pixels
138 / 578 = 0.2387543
45 / 0.2387543 = 188.48 inches = 15.71 feet

there are some serious scale issues.
I agree that 30 feet is way too big, but I don't know...

maybe we need a fresh perspective.

Re: V-35 landspeeder


If we go in reverse and assume that kenposan is right with his figure of 21ft, then we need to do the same measurement in reverse.
so 21 feet is 252 inches.
578 pixels = 252 pixels.
252 x 0.2387543 = 60.17 inches.
that makes the V 35 about 5 feet tall according to your measurement, but with ground clearance of about 9 inches, that would make it 69 inches tall
or 5.75 feet tall...does that work for you?

I am not so sure it does for me.

PS - man I hate that rumbleseat idea. blech.
regards,
Lucas

Re: V-35 landspeeder


15 ft is closer to my original 17ft guess, but that gets blown by the test dummy fit test. Here is a 15 ft dummy test:

Here is another screen shotLucas, maybe it can help you out.

Image



5.75 feet tall? Sure doesn't look that way from the screen shots.

Here is an image with yellow scale bars added. For some reason the speeder appears less than 21 ft but I have rescaled the orginal image three times and all of those images match in size, so I am not sure why it is shorter when the scale bar is applied. Help!

Re: V-35 landspeeder


Well not sure if this will help, or muddy the waters more, but i just yanked some images from ANH (I don't have the ability to post them here, but i'll tell you the shots i used, please feel free to check me).

First i used the shot of R2 & 3PO next to eachother in the hall of the blockade runner. It's the last shot before the stormtroopers appear.

Second i used the shot of 3PO hiding behinde the speeder when luke comes looking for them after dinner. It's the second shot (he's stooped in teh first).

So using those and a copy of the side view of the speeder posted earlier in the thread i came out with it being approx (+or - 1 in) 23ft long and 5ft 4 in.

Again please double check me on the math...but that's what i'm getting...

Re: V-35 landspeeder


ok...i already found an error in my math...the pictuer i used with the speeder & 3po it's too dark to see the top of the spoiler...so i was using a slightly different reference point....the corrected hight and length are: 25ft 11in long & 6ft 2 in high

Again please double check.

Re: V-35 landspeeder


look at these:

The guy in the foreground looks taller than the speeder. I know we have the issue of perspective here but he doesn't look that far away from the speeder. If he is six feet tall, than this speeder is a foot or two shorter by my guess.

Re: V-35 landspeeder


Isn't all this math fun?

I was thinking about the drivers seat we see in the Essential guide and the Tech Journal. Do any of you see this high-backed driver's seat in the movies????

I don't, but I just found the driver. Take a close look at the filter stack in front of the spoiler. I think the stunt driver is in the filter stack, and there is no driver seat on top. I think it was Shane Johnson's and Troy Vigil's way of solving the driver in the engine problem. LOL emoticon

We may have to go with the larger 25 foot estimates which will allow 4 not 3 people to travel inside this "thing". Please keep these facts in mind as you make your estimates, because I think I just hit upon the reason why WEG never made stats in the RPG for this speeder (a core staple of the STAR WARS speeder market). It was too scary to deal with I think.

Your thoughts please.

Re: V-35 landspeeder


You may be right, and that may be why we never see it move in the original release...i could be wrong (and i'll have to look carfully later) but arn't all the shots we see of it moving CGI add in's from the Special Edition?
