Retired LEGO Star Wars UCS Sandcrawler (75059) Sale on Amazon

If you missed out on the recently retired LEGO Star Wars UCS Sandcrawler (75059), Amazon, as of this post, seems to have it in stock and at a lower price than the usual $299.99. [email protected] does not carry the set anymore and LEGO Stores most likely won’t have it either but it is currently on sale for $284.12 which is a minimal discount but at least it’s in stock. If you’ve been wanting to get it, I highly suggest you jump on it as there’s no word on when it will be gone.

Packaging Design Explanation for LEGO Star Wars UCS Sandcrawler 75059

LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059)

The LEGO Marketing department has given an explanation of the Ultimate Collector’s Series seal on the new LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059).

“The decision has been made to change the packaging for future “LEGO exclusive” Star Wars sets to include the UCS seal and de-link from the core Star Wars packaging. In addition to the packaging change an update has been made to the building instructions. The building instructions will have additional pages detailing the model’s connection to the movie and its development process. Much as the Creator Expert badge differentiates the larger models from the core assortment the goal of this change is to better communicate to builders that these sets represent our biggest building challenge in the LEGO Star Wars theme.”

First Image of the New LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059)

Flickr user kjavis88 has posted the first image of the new LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059). The image appears that it’s from the LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary: Updated and Expanded that is supposed to come out in May. The new Sandcrawler has lots of plates usage and also includes Uncle Owen Lars and at least three Jawas minifigures. Other things the Sandcrawler has are LEGO Technic treads, a magnetic winch, and a Jawa hoversled. It has been rumored that this new set would be revealed at Brick Cascade 2014 and would be the exclusive for LEGO’s May the 4th promotion. Other reports show that the Sandcrawler would go for $349.99. Now we just have to wait for the official images of the set. This also makes me wonder what other new things are updated in the new LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary.

LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059) To Be Revealed at Brick Cascade?

Hoth Bricks is reporting that the new LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059) will be officially revealed in March at Brick Cascade 2014 in Portland, OR. Early reports of the new Sandcrawler is that it will go for $349.99 and will be a larger, regular set much like the Ewok Village (10236) from last year. Hoth Bricks is also reporting that an exclusive Slave I, possibly with an Ultimate Collector’s Series label, will be revealed sometime in September. There are no other details for the two sets but at least we get to know a timeframe of when they will be officially revealed by LEGO, if these rumors are true.

More LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059) Details

Last year, we reported that there was a rumor of a new LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (75059) was being released this year. It looks like that rumor has been confirmed by Brick Shop Holland. There are no images at this time and they have listed the set as an Ultimate Collector’s Series set but it may just be a larger set much like the Ewok Village (10236) from last year. There’s no word on the piece count but jvdrummer182 on Brickset states that it will retail at $349.99. At that price point, my guess is the piece count would be in the upper 2000s/lower 3000s. The origial Sandcrawler (10144) only had 1669 pieces but I suspect this new version will be much larger than that. There’s also no word on the release date but one possibility is during the LEGO May the 4th event. More details as they become available.
