Huge 10,000 Piece Custom-Made STAR WARS Technic LEGO Sandcrawler
Jarren Harkema and Calvin Hartley are such big fans of LEGO and Star Wars that they decided to build a massive custom made 3 foot long, 28 pound, 10,000-LEGO brick replica of the Sandcrawler from Star Wars: Episode IV. They spent 500 hours creating this behemoth vehicle, and they revealed it at Chicago’s Brickworld LEGO convention. There it was nominated for “Best Mechanical Creation.”
While talking to Michigan Live, Harkema said:
The idea for the Sandcrawler was born in Hartley’s basement “that is “literally devoted to Lego” with tables, plastic tubs and an entire wall with drawers full of building elements. They chose the Sandcrawler because it provided a lot of interesting challenges when it came to the mechanics. The original building team started out with five, but gradually “whittled itself down to just the two of them.”
