10144 USC Sandcrawler - the real thing - much more better than 75059
Back in 2005 Lego created this wonderfull set that belongs to the Ultimate Collector Series.
The Ultimate Collector Series started in year 2000 and sets are meant to be more detailed
and aimed at older builders. These sets do not generally include Minifigures, but since 2007,
most have included at least one. Most are also not designed to scale with Minifigures, though
there are some cases (such as 10195 Republic Dropship with AT-OT Walker) where the set is
completely to scale. Ultimate Collector's Series sets tend to be larger, and more expensive than
typical sets. Commonly, Ultimate Collector's Series sets were given a five-digit (10xxx) product
number until 2014.
The 10144 UCS Sandcrawler set consists of 1669 pieces and comes with the following figures:
1x C-3PO Pearl light Gold (SW010)
1x R2-D2 (SW028)
1x GNK Power Droid (SW073A)
1x Owen Lars (SW140)
3x Jawa with cloth cape (SW141)
1x R5-D4 (SW142)
1x ASP Droid (SW145)
1x Treadwell Droid (SW146)
1x R1-G4 (SW147)
Besides C-3PO and R2-D2 all figures only appear in this set and especially the Jawas (SW141) are very nice.
In the new version of the Sandcawler 75059 the Jawas (SW560) do not have a cloth cape and their eyes appear bigger.
The lowermost level of the sandcrawler is also the smallest, due to its shape. It has a rotating axle which moves a plate via a gear system. Attached to the system is a pair of plates with cylinders. The floor is black with tan plates and the walls are red-brown with some tan, earth-orange and light gray scattered throughout. There are two pairs of arched doorways. On top of the walls are a pair of tall walls with arches at the top. Another set of similar walls is connected to this, with another pair of arches. At the end you will find some different architecture. There are two sets of cylinders, two on each side, a pair of spray can nozzles, and two engines. On top of the arches are a pair or technic beams. On the bottom are a pair of lights. On the bottom of the sandcrawler are its means of propulsion, treads. These can rotate due to technic axles connected by a gear system. Now on top of one of the sections is a plate. It has a few small "domes" and ventilation parts. The front of the sand crawler opens and closes with technic pins. On either side of the gate is a wall. These open through hinge pieces. Inside of the sand crawler is a room. The room is gray, black, and earth brown. It has a red light and a green light to indicate whether it's working, a pair of nozzles, a computer, multiple tool holders, and a charger. On top of one charger is a bunch of red lights and it is turned on or off using a switch on the computer. On top of the red/green light is a wheel to turn it on and off. There is a vent on top of which is another switch. The room has no walls. On top is an arch-style architecture and a set of technic beams. The top of the room is open. It is attached to the roof of the sandcrawler so that it hangs down. A set of slope walls are found on top of the sand crawler. An opening hatch can be found on the top and a piece which has a loop at the top is on it. On top of the room is a cooling grille. Another section of the sandcrawler is the crane. It has a red light on one side and a green light on the other. There is a small control panel. The crane arm can be pulled in by turning a gear which pulls some string on the end. The crane is on the entrance to the sandcrawler and is used to hoist droids to the second level where they can be disabled, turned back on or repaired.
Compared the new version the 10144 is definitvly the better pick.
It is much more detailed (the crawler tracks are made of stones and not with stickers) and stable.
And of course the old Jawas are real brilliant.
