This is a project I've always wanted to do if I ever found a beat up GI Joe Mobile Command Center. Earlier this summer I got one with a bunch of other Joes and got to work.

I was inspired by the Ralph McQuarrie concept art as well and added a mini hauler vehicle made from a Sgt. Slaughter Triple T. You can also see what looks like a MCC version of a Sandcrawler at the far left

The hauler returns with some scavenged finds.

Great work, looks like a big project! Love the shots of the Jawas and the droids. Looks like there's a lot of activity going on there!

I got it in a huge lot of 1980s toys for $100. They usually sell in similar condition for around $50 on ebay.

Thanks for the comments guys. For some reason the full pictures are not showing up here. Make sure to right click and click view image for the "widescreen" version. :D

Wow!!! This thing is amazing and definitely has the feel of a Vintage playset. Plus, it looks very much like the cousin of a Sandcrawler!

This is ridiculously cool! Does this thing come with hydraulics? (Even Jawas need to look cool in their 'hood!)
