The set is rather fantastic, as it, like its predecessor the Starspeeder 1000, has lots of sounds and light-up features. One of the stand out features includes a working electronic droid elevator.
The set is very large and more than doubles the Kenner version which was re-purposed in the Hasbro line in 2004.
The Jawa figure (left) included with the set features ball-jointed shoulders and swivel wrists but no other articulation. The mold is different but very similar to Hasbro’s Jawa figure (right) from The Black Series line.
The Gonk Droid is actually the EG-6 Power Droid found in the Sandcrawler covered in parts in A New Hope.
The insides of the crawler include details such as a light furnace, a compartment for TRASH (written in Aurebesh), a working droid crane and a light-up cockpit.
For those picking up this set, it is most likely destined to become the backdrop of many a purchase of the droids diorama.
