Utinni! This unbelievably detailed Sandcrawler might be one of the coolest Star Wars LEGO customs ever

We knew Sandpeople always ride single file to hide their numbers, but we had no idea Jawas rolled across the dunes in so much style!

Enter this incredible Star Wars LEGO creation and prepare to have your mind blown. Made with more than 10,000 bricks, the detailed sandcrawler took 500 hours to build. The builders, Calvin Hartley and Jarren Harkema, integrated a number of mechanical elements into their creation to really bring the iconic desert rover to life.

Peek inside the colossal creation for snapshot into the everyday life of the scheming, bartering Jawa.

This Sandcrawler debuted at Brickworld Chicago 2015. This mechanical beast was a total hit at the annual event and has been making waves online since.

For those interested in a slightly smaller version, Star Wars LEGO enthusiasts can pick up their own officially licensed, 3,296 piece Sandcrawler for $300 shipped.

Here’s a life-size model of Claptrap from Borderlands made entirely of LEGO

Straight from the show floor at Brickworld Chicago 2015, Simon Liu has created a life size Claptrap model made entirely of LEGO. While not an exact plastic brick replica like the new LEGO Ferrari F40, the beloved Borderlands character comes to life in full block form and at quite an impressive scale (2.5 feet tall, 1:1 scale). Liu, who is a huge Borderlands fan, said it was difficult to match the angles of the titular robot, and was forced to create a completely solid wheel just to hold the top up.
