Check out Brickset for more pictures (specifically: the 'more images' button).
And Luke returned to the Lars homestead after he received the lightsaber, where he found the dead Jawa's and his dead Uncle and Aunt.

wow, those minifig faces are horrible.

Otherwise nice looking set, but I'd be much more excited to see this if I DIDN'T already own the previous sandcrawler.

And, too pricey.

Nice set, but as others have said, too expensive.
I'll have to get me some jawas on the secondary market, unless this goes the route of the B-Wing and Lego starts selling it at 50% off.

Fantastic looking set, I think they nailed this one.

I was very curious to see how they would close the gap between Marshall Banana's version and the original sandcrawler, and I believe they struck a near-perfect balance. As mentioned above, I'm not liking the minifig faces...seems like they're trying too hard or something. An easy fix. Ewok village, cantina, another AT-AT (looks decent enough to me), now the new sandcrawler - a great OT year!
