    May the Force be with Mike Degirolamo when he goes up against the city council of Gloucester Township, N.J.
    The Philly 'burb resident wants to build a 20-foot-by-12-foot model of a "Star Wars" Jawa Sandcrawler on the grounds of a local business, according to an Associated Press report.
    But first, the Lucasfilm fanatic needs to convince officials that a replica of the Jawas' desert vehicle will duly complement the architecture of the historic redevelopment area where he wants to build.
    The town has another concern about welcoming a model Jawa Sandcrawler. "This could wind up being an attractive nuisance and a safety concern if kids try to climb on it," township community development director Ed Sayers told the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill, N.J.
    If past behavior is any indication, Degirolamo's vision of Jawas in Jersey isn't just some Jedi mind trick.
    The 38-year-old built a 35-foot model of a "Star Wars" ship in 2002 for his yard, and after complaints by neighbors and a visit from inspectors, he had to put up a fence.
    Hopefully for Degirolamo's sake, the current matter will get resolved quickly. The movie lover, after all, can't wait until the droids come home to proceed. He wants to build his model vehicle before the May opening of "Episode III: Revenge of the Sith."

    If you could have any replica built, what would you want?
