LEGO and Star Wars fans, get ready to have your mind blown!
Flickr member Marshal Banana has created a scale replica of the iconic Sandcrawler, as seen in A New Hope.
There are LED's inside and out, faux weathered exterior, an operable ramp that drops down and even a crane that can lift cargo and place it on a conveyor belt inside. And yes, it moves. The entire project took 9 months to plan and build.
Here's some quick facts about the project, taken from his YouTube video page:
- Dimensions: 96 cm long, 100.5 cm long (lowered main ramp)
- Weight: ~20 kg
- Part count: over 10,000
- Power functions: 4 xl motors, 5 m motors, 4 receivers, 4 battery packs, 22 Lego LED-lights
Powered radio-controlled Functions:

- main ramp: up and down
- crane: up and down, in and out
- conveyer band: forward and reverse
