  • Comments: The timid and greedy Jawas make a sparse living by scavenging scrap metal and lost droids on the planet Tatooine. They travel the desert landscape in huge sandcrawlers that are both their homes and bases of operations. One day, they capture C-3PO and R2-D2, who have come to the planet to give Obi-Wan Kenobi an important message from the Rebel leader Princess Leia. Eventually, they sell the two droids to Owen Lars, whose nephew, Luke Skywalker, discovers the hidden message in R2-D2 and becomes embroiled in the fate of the galaxy.

    Points of Interest:
  • The Sandcrawler is based on the Vintage Radio Controlled Jawa Sandcrawler, except this time it has a brand new paint job and is missing the electronics.
  • Both Jawas were originally available as POTF2 Jawas.
  • RA-7 is based on the POTF2 Death Star Droid, except now he's got a different paint job and a new name. And no Mouse Droid.
  • Also included with this vehicle is an OTC Guidebook that shows other toys in the Original Trilogy Collection.

    The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
    Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
    Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
    Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
    meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
    Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
    Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
