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.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
