UCS LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler confirmed

LEGO have confirmed the rumour that has been circulating recently that the next Star Wars UCS set will be 75059 Sandcrawler. A UCS Sandcrawler had been the subject of a failed CUUSOO bid last year as LEGO could not “approve this project in the LEGO Review based on our ongoing relationship and collaboration with Lucasfilm on LEGO Star Wars”.

As with previous UCS releases the set is expected to be released around May 4th. It is unclear what this years minifigure giveaway will be however.
