Hey guys, has anyone heard anymore information from Celebration regarding the hinted "Sandcrawler Mystery" ? ???

It's always possible that there's no more info right now because it was just a trial balloon. I mean, they could have only used a silhouette just to gauge the reaction from the audience to see if anyone wants a Sandcrawler (it's a sure sell for many of us old-timers but you never know).

Also, it occurred to me that it said "playset" which makes me think that it leaves them the option of either giving us a full vehicle that unfolds into a playset like that clone wars shuttle that Hasbro did (back when times were good) or it could be a cheap cardboard silhouette of the Sandcrawler with a plastic base reminiscent to the Kenner Sandcrawler and still qualify as a playset...

Edit: someone in the RS forums suggested something I hadn't thought of, it could be a reuse of the Hasbro Sandcrawler mold... that wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility and a more affordable solution for Disney since no new (or much new) tooling would be involved. I really hope that's not the case.

I would bet the farm it will open sideways & work in conjunction with the Disney "Droid Factory" R2 & 3PO units. More for play than display, and honestly there is room for that.
