Lhosan Manta as well, it was in one of my first packs but I sadly haven't gotten any more after.

None.

The Lhosan line is, undoubtedly, the worst of all the speeders. They're not sleek; they're clunky. They're big and manouver horribly. It's like I'm riding a giant hovering seesaw.

None.

This seems the appropriate place to bring this up: speeder design flaws. Notice no seats or back-rests on the speeders your character is obliged to 'stand up' on? This means, technically, that you'd be thrown off as soon as you hit the throttle. Newton's Third Law is activated every time we speed around on these ridiculously designed mounts.

Now, I'm a Sci-Fi/Fantasy enthusiast from way back, meaning I don't have to have my entertainment in this genre precisely mimic reality. However, as noted by Tolkien, the closest the make-believe world resembles the real world, the more engaging/enthralling it becomes (paraphrased). The more it violates reality, the less interesting/engaging it becomes.

The motor-cycle type speeders are clunky, graceless and appear slower (though I know they aren't). The Throne-types are just sheer lore-violating CM ploys designed to rake in cash---nothing more.

Therefore, my answer to this ridiculous question is: none.

The Christmas speeder - mainly because it was mental

The Lhosan Manta, not because I love it so much, but because it's the only non-silly looking, non-stand-up speeder usable by level 10 with a decent sound. (Kurtob sound FX makes me want to run away.)

A couple days late but my favorite one is the Gurion Shadow mount. Something about riding around on a mount that seems styled after the TIE Fighters I just love. Now if you guys would just add the TIE sound to it.

Undoubtedly mine is the Lhosan Manta. I recently got one out of a pack and man, it is just so sleek looking. I always preferred the "lean forward" mounts over the "standing" ones as is. It also nicely matches my all black social gear setup
