Epic, Massive, and Beautifully Detailed!!! – By John Laing on August 6, 2015
This thing is just freaking epic!!! I loved building this Sandcrawler! It was massively detailed and such a joy with all the details. I’m half tempted to tear it all down just so I can rebuild it all over again. There is so much detail to this beauty!
The force is strong in this one. – By Scott on July 24, 2015
I gave this as a birthday present for my 9-year old son. He really gets a kick out of telling you what age the kit is intended for and that he put it together all by himself.
I’m not a collector of Lego kits (although you’d think otherwise if you saw the bazillion Lego pieces my kids have) so I can’t and won’t comment on how this ranks with with other kits in this series, but I can say this is a really nice kit. My son loved getting it and putting it together over the course of a few days and he still plays with it 7 months later. It’s been relegated as a “showpiece” kit in our house, so he’s not allowed to take it apart or else it would soon decompose into 3,296 Lego pieces and be consumed among all the other Legos he has. The half-life of Lego kits in my house can be very short if rules aren’t imposed.
Of course everything fit together perfectly, just like every Lego set. It’s got a lot of moving pieces on it which makes it pretty cool and I think it tips the scales at about 84 pounds (just kidding, I think it’s 83).
It’s pricey, but if you’re a Lego collector I don’t think price matters, you guys will buy anything. If you’re buying it for you son or daughter, they’ll love it.
Not as sexy as my X-Wing or Falcon but due to all the features packed into this guy, one of my top 5 Lego sets I ever built! – By Kevin Tennant on April 19, 2015
This set was surprisingly, way cooler than I thought it could be. I mean. it’s a lumbering sand crawler and didn’t play a big role in the movie except to bring a few characters together. I passed on this model many times because it didn’t look like a fun model to build. Boy was I wrong! First of all the model designer, Olav Kroigaard did a superb job of engineering the way this model goes together. The hatches, access doors and interior could not have been done better or with more thought to fit and finish. One of my favorite parts to build and watch function are the tracks. They are fully functioning, steerable tracks that complete the overall look and when pushed make a delightfully realistic “Tank” sound on the table or floor. Many of the pieces and collected droids are strategically placed in loose fitting boxes inside or stowed on hooks adding even more to the rumbling, rattling effect of the re-purposed ore hauler that now serves as the Jawa’s home on treads. There are two working cranes and a front drop down ramp that is lowered by draw bridge like chains operated by a thumb screw on top. The removable top sections allow access to the interior as well as the 4 side sections that fold up. Even with all these movable sections, this model is rock solid.
From every angle, there is no doubt this is an accurate representation of the sand crawler from Episode IV. I could go on and on but I have a vast desert to cover and lost droids to find.
