Nerd Fights City Hall

A New Jersey man is waging a fight with municipal authorities for the right to build a 20-foot model of a Jawa Sandcrawler (one of the three Star Wars toys I did not own as a child).

A guy who wants to build the Sandcrawler? What a dork, what a loser. I mean, if he was trying to do the AT-AT . . .

This guy's got quite a history. Before "Episode Two" came out, he built a 35-foot model of a Rebel Blockade Runner (aka the Corellian Corvette).

I suppose one of the many reasons to be grateful there won't be an "Episode Seven" is that Mr. Degirolamo won't be tempted to litter his town with life-sized Moisture Vaporators or construct a 1/10 scale model of the Nebulon-B Frigate.
