Jawas deploy this monsterous vehicle to roam the desolate sand dunes of Tatooine, picking up droids and mechanical odds and ends to re-sell across the planet. Hear audio from the scene where R2-D2 and C-3PO reunite in this mechanical junk pile after being captured. Utini! Learn more about Keepsake Ornaments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeniorSciFiForeverFanatic From the first Star Wars movie, a real treat for the eyes, and memory!
I'm an old "First Trilogy" Star Wars fan (67 yrs!). To see the Jawa "Sand Crawler" - the Moveable "Junk Yard" that graces the great desert of Tatooine, and marks the dramatic droid prison sequence, featuring two of my favorite SW characters, R2-D2 and C3PO, and TO ACTUALLY HEAR THE EXACT MOMENT WHEN POOR C3PO FINDS HIS LITTLE FRIEND IN THE DROID JUNK PILE, EXCLAIMING: "R2D2...IT IS YOU...IT ISSSSSS YOU!, with all the drama that entailed, is to be taken back to a universe so "Far, far away", with two characters that set the standards for
"intelligent" droids, as these two favorites of mine did!
The detailing showing "desert wear", and crawler roof "aerator assembly plus", not to mention the beautifully-rendered lines of one of the most iconic "vehicles" in cinematic history, plus the exact lines - with exact digital sound - spoken in that memorable scene from the first Star Wars movie, is to be wafted into a future set in the distant past (at least, for me!).
This keepsake ornament goes directly into a prominent place in my Star Wars/Hot Wheels collection (although, this piece - I believe - is not a Hot Wheels production); and, the more I look at it, and the more I listen to C3PO's happy discovery of his once-lost friend, I am reaching the point where I think I have to go back to the Hallmark store, and buy, NOT ONE, BUT TWO MORE OF MY SAND CRAWLER BUDDIES!.
At least, unlike with the Lionel offerings for this holiday season, with this keepsake I know I'm getting a fine replica of one of my favorite Star Wars' icons!
BUY IT...YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!
