StarWTF!? Episode 32: Sandcrawler

We're on a roll with oversized things in the Star Wars universe. You might say it's a slow roll. About as slow as the SANDCRAWLER crawling through the Tatooine desert.

Yes, today we discuss the mother of all land-based Star Wars vehicles.... the Sandcrawler! And probably more specifically, the Corellia Mining Corporation Digger Crawler. We get into the logistics of this thing, what's inside and what's making it run. The how's and why's and everything else.

Sandcrawlers were large, slow, treaded vehicles, used as self propelled bases for mining squads. Most notable example of usage of these vessels, later adapted by Jawas for their mobile homes, was on Tatooine, where bulky sandcrawlers climbing the dunes were a common sight.

A question for our listeners. WTF was on the side of McQuarrie's Sandcrawler? A turret? A sidecar?


2014 (Big difference)
