Star Wars Fans Build Giant Lego Technic Sandcrawler
LEGO enthusiasts Jarren Harkema and Calvin Hartley spent more than 500 hours, and used more than 10,000 bricks, to create a massive LEGO Technic replica of the Sandcrawler from Star Wars: A New Hope, and it was totally worth it.
The 3-foot, 28-pound vehicle debuted last month at Chicago Brickworld 2015, where it was nominated for Best Mechanical Creation. Plus, their Sandcrawler is big enough that is couldprobably carry an actual Jawa.
“We crammed many mechanical features into it, which was challenging, but I think it worked out fairly well,” Hartley told Michigan’s MLive as he demonstrated that the Sandcrawler can actually, well, crawl.
Video footage of the sandcrawler in action can be seen on the Beyond the Brick YouTube page.
