Fans of both LEGO and Star Wars already know that there’s an official version of the Sandcrawler from Star Wars: A New Hope available for purchase. It’s a pretty impressive and expensive set that has over 3,200 pieces. But it’s nothing compared to the massive custom creation put together by two master builders.
LEGO superfans Jarren Harkema and Calvin Hartley have crafted a LEGO Technic replica of the Sandcrawler that is three feet long, weighs 28 pounds, and is made up of over 10,000 pieces. And because it’s a LEGO Technic creation, it can actually be driven around. Check out the custom LEGO Sandcrawler after the jump! Read More »

While Hasbro’s Transformers are some of the most popular toys on the planet, and have been since the 1980s, the Autobots and Decepticons have yet to roll out in LEGO form. But one LEGO fan has changed that.
LEGO Master Builder and Flickr user Savelsberg has created a LEGO version of the iconic Autobot leader Optimus Prime, who usually turns into a semi-truck. And while you might expect this to just be a LEGO version of the truck form of Optimus Prime, believe it or not, this custom LEGO creation actually turns into the robot form of the Transformer.
