The Sandcrawler comes with 7 minifigures: Luke Skywalker, Uncle Owen, C-3PO and 4 Jawas, plus R2-D2, R2 unit, an R1-series Droid, Gonk Droid, R5-D4 and a Treadwell Droid. I love the Jawas minifigures and it’s cool that they include 4 of them in the set. The new printing on R2-D2 looks beautiful and C-3P0 leg printing too.
