That's a great pic there, Hemish. I wish I could find some Jawas on the pegs at Wal-Mart or Target, but they're always missing when a new shipment of wave 3 shows up.

now...thats a jawa army! very different, indeed. its a good to see a jawa army instead of the common clones, stormtroopers, or imperial armies. now, i thought i had an decent jawa squad, but nowhere near as many as you. great pic.

These little guys are always overlooked even if they were among the first aliens to appear in SW. Really cool setup!

WOW THATS INCREDIBLE!

Just a suggestion though: add some more TAC jawas in. I only see one.

I'm a big fan of the little guys. It's good to see someone take an interest in building Jawa forces.

Now you'd need a larger custom Jawa like this to look over the collection: http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

As a fellow jawa collector, I really appreciate any display with tons of jawas. Very cool display. Might I suggest a tusken raider in the middle over a open flame... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Ha! This is great.
You know what's funny is that I don't think I've ever even seen that many Jawas in one place! I'm sure it's just a me thing but I just never see them hanging around on the pegs. Looking at your collection makes me wish I had bought the OTC Sandcrawler a few years ago.

Hemish and Reverend Darth you both have some awesome Jawa hordes built up there! Very nice.

I too "army-build" jawas of ALL varieties dating all the way back to the vintage Kenner days !

I truly love those little buggers!

I know exactly what you mean K2002! After all, what's a horde of jawas without an awesome Sandcrawler for them to ride around in and transport their droid inventory?

Now, for many years I was really happy with the Vintage Kenner Radio Controlled Jawa Sandcrawler. It had great detail and it was very authentic when compared to the on-screen crawler. And you could NOT beat that RC feature! Years of fun with that one!!

And then, many years later, when the OTC version was announced, I really looked forward to it, but then passed when it was actually released. You see, although I loved the look of the new "weathered" paint deco, I really didn't care for the fact that this Sandcrawler did NOT roll at all... even manually!!

I mean even if it wasn't an RC model like the vintage one, it should have at least had rolling wheels tucked underneath the fake treads so you could manually roll it about. No?

Well anyway, in the end, I decided that my horde of Jawas desperately needed a correctly-scaled Sandcrawler update that Hasbro was unlikely to ever provide.

Of course THAT meant a much, much bigger Sandcrawler would have to be custom-built for my little guys. It would need to be large enough to hold ALL of my many Jawas AND their droid inventory too. And, like the vintage Kenner version, I wanted it to be remote controlled.

A bit of a tall order, but I felt it was do-able.

So after I contacted a customizer friend of mine from South America, we were able to put together a very serious custom Sandcrawler. He built the main superstructure of the beast and all the kit-bashed details, while I spent the summer putting together the components for real actual rolling RC treads (which I kit-bashed off of sereval very large scale RC military tanks).

Of course, as always, I must give credit where it is due: A large part of the inspiration for this project was provided by my first look at the amazing custom Sandcrawler of fellow scummer (and all-around nice guy) Ares-X!

Here are some pics of mine:
