Brikwave Collective "Neon Rider" Armored Transport [BB21]

The Brikwave Collective's ground forces needed a new way to get around since their party buses were a little too easy to blow up. This is their newly developed armored personnel carrier; perhaps you could even call it a mobile base. It has enough room to carry 2 squads of infantry and can handle the roughest terrain.

B is for Brikwave Collective. Also Brikwars. And BOOM. The front has some firepower to clear the way.

It has a mounted turret with dual laser cannons. DUAL LASER CANNONS!

The massive rear door opens and becomes a convenient ramp.

Also that black part in the middle is a hatch! It opens to allow access to the roof. (It reminds me a bit of a missile silo... maybe an idea for later?)

Interior is very spacious. There's a flat panel TV on the left wall for those long trips.

Better interior view. Various info screens and controls, plus you gotta have a coffee maker.

Style - 7.5
Overall shaping is nice and making some good use out of the parts like the windshield and tires.

Substance - 7
I think the color blocking could use some work and maybe eliminating some of the colors like the brown and yellow. However, the play features and an APC that can actually fit stuff is a plus.

Photography - 8.5
Clear Photos and clean background.

Boast, Tie-Breaker Category - 5
Not much of a boast, but at least gave some backstory to the build

Overall Score - 23 + 5 tiebreaker
Awesome build for what it is, could definitely be made in mass while still retaining some NPU. Overall, you should be proud.

Style - 7
I like the shape of the vehicle but it reminds me a little bit too much of the pop-out party bus. The wheels are a high point. Small windows in the back seem a little out of place.

Substance - 7
The yellow, brown, and some transparent shades detract from the vibrant teal and dark purple, especially when the vehicle is open.

Photography - 8
Decent photos - prefer a little more even, bright lighting.

Boast, Tie-Breaker Category - 4
Decent backstory, would like a little more lore to tie it into the faction.

Overall Score - 22 + 4 tiebreaker
I really like the colors and where this vehicle is going (no pun intended). I think cleaning up the inside colors and eliminating the small windows would be a great upgrade to this cool APC.
