This is definitely the Lego Star Wars Sandcrawler I was looking for. It's not as massive as the fan built vehicle that every Lego and Star Wars nerd in the world wanted, but with all its moving mechanism and seven minifigs, it's a must have. Its character and construction seems well resolved. Check out the pictures and the video, because it's really cool.
It's not the massive Sandcrawler Ultimate Collector Edition every Star Wars and Lego nerd in the world were claiming for, but it's pretty damn good. 3,296 pieces! It's pretty damn big. Here we got all the official images. It really looks fantastic.
It includes seven minifigures: Luke Skywalker, Uncle Owen, C-3PO and four Jawas, plus R2-D2, R2 unit, an R1-series droid, Gonk droid, R5-D4 and a Treadwell Droid. But best of all is that it's a great design, with lots of mechanisms:
Features 8 tracks with steering function, lowering front ramp, opening side flaps, removable top, working cranes, speeder bike, opening hatch for easy access to the boxes, attachable handles for lifting boxes, and a detailed interior including engine bay, storage bay and cockpit.
It will be available in the US for $300 (Canada will be $350, 300 euros in Germany and£249.99 in the UK.)
