RADIO CONTROLLED JAWA SANDCRAWLER

Star Wars

3 3/4" Vehicle

Released in 1979 along with the Millennium Falcon Spaceship, the Land Of The Jawas playset, the Darth Vader TIE Fighter Vehicle, the Creature Cantina playset, the Droid Factory playset, the Patrol Dewback, and the Imperial Troop Transporter, Kenner痴 Remote Controlled Jawa Sandcrawler is still one of the most sought after pieces in the vintage collection.

This vehicle was released in the U.S. in only packaging sporting the Star Wars logo and a printed Rebate Offer starburst. The Kenner Canada version, however, featured The Empire Strikes Back logo on the packaging, as well as TESB logoed stickers that went over the Star Wars logoed stickers on the remote control itself. As is event in the photographs below, the original U.S. Star Wars logo stickers were affixed on the Canadian version of the toy. The toy photographed in the images below was the Kenner Canada version, but TESB stickers were removed before the toy became available to us to photograph.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
