    Well, the Sandcrawler would be a neat set to have. I know it's on many fan's wishlists. The Episode I MTT is probably the closest we've come to this kind of vehicle so LEGO could do a nice 'crawler for $50. Personally, I l'd like to see a one-hundred dollar, 1000+ piece set similar to the AT-AT. Maybe with a dozen or so Jawas and droids thrown into the mix. Why is LEGO so stingy with it's mini-figs?

    For some reason a UCS DS doesn't really excite me. It would be a giant gray-plate service pack. I still haven't bought the Star Destroyer since it's not much more than a facade. I think the smaller fighters make the best models. I'd like to see a UCS A-Wing and B-Wing, maybe a landspeeder, or Imperial Shuttle. The Millenium Falcon is high on the list too but we've already gotten two System versions already.

    I've wanted a UCS Sandcrawler for some time now. It could make for a really neat set. As for the Second Death Star that has potential to be a really neat set also if they can get the size right. Don't make it small first of all, if you're gonna do it do it right and make the size of a beach ball. It's got potential if the reports are real.

    EDIT: I just checked the site with the reports and they say they've been confirmed. Link

    It is my understanding that they shy away from the mini-figs to keep the line as a primary building set. If they cranked out too many mini-figs, it could ruffle Hasbro's feathers in regard to their exclusive action figure license.

    Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I don't like it either and frankly if Lego were able to use more mini-figs it would not affect my Hasbro buying decisions. To me it's no different than other companies getting the ability to make Star Wars character themed items (Gentle Giant, for example).

    I heard that Hasbro was going to sue Lego because of the Mini-figure Multi-packs. Don't know if that true, though?

    Anyway, is there any pics of the Sandcrawler and Death Star II floating around?

    Not yet. The sites that I've went to said that the info is really early and the source doesn't want to reveal who he is by releasing pictures.

    I'll be passing on both these if they are non-minifig UCS sets. They just don't appeal to me. If they can put out a 10-figure Imp Shut. rehash set and a UCS version they can certainly do a 10-fig. regular Sandcrawler set.

    Hey, guys. Check this out. If this is what the Sandcrawlers going to look like its will be a BEAST to build.

    Although this is from a Lego Mania Mag, coverage of a custom contest. This could be the set designed by a fan.
