This may be a dumb question, but anybody care to wager an educated guess on the secondary market for these. Right now you can't get one on eBay for less than double retail. Will people calm down over time and the price will come down or will this be so scarce it'll stay or rise in "value"?

Itís new so Iíd say give it time.  Most of their stuff has been available for a long time even when it is eventually discontinued.  Certain figs seem to have gained value fast but if you were to compare Iíd say the Starspeeder playset is a more fair comparison long term.  Just my opinion.  The figs seem to have no rhyme or reason as to why one is worth a lot and others arenít.  Besides the convention exclusives I canít think of any of the droids as ďlimitedĒ.  At the same time I recall some of the 4-packs sitting forever on shelves it seemed then once they sold out suddenly people seemed to suddenly want them and their secondary prices went up.

Similarly wave 1 park pieces are commanding premiums over time in notocing.  The SC is so new itís tough to call but Iíd say itíll be worth basically itís park price for a while then itíll eventually not be carried and people who didnít buy will panic and drive prices up then.

I didnít even realize this thing was available yet.

What figures does it come with?  Figured means I probably need to track one down somehow.

A GNK droid and Jawa.  Not sure about the droid, but Jawa is Disney new.

Great... and it's only available in the park right?  Any chance of it showing up on the app that we know of?

The Gonk and Jawa are both dumbed down Hasbro figures based on recent sculpts...  basically some articulation is deleted and their decos are new.  The crawler itself is all new wirh lights and sounds and stuff.  Some cool features for sure like a working elevator and crane.  A page or two back I posted a guys video review of it.

Finally got around to watching the video Jesse posted.  While I don't love the paint job, the rest of this thing looks awesome.  So many cool electronics between the elevator, lights, sounds, etc.  Definitely going to pick one of these up if I get the chance.

A friend of mine went old-school on the Sandcrawler and called Disney Delivears (at least that's what it was called a few years ago).  He got a hold of a representative who said that it was only in stores at the moment, but they were able to take an order over the phone.  The Disney rep also stated that the Sandcrawlers were selling quickly.

That phone number is:  (877) 560-6477 .  The Sandcrawler is $99.99 plus tax and shipping (around $12 for him.  YMMV)

Thanks for the tip.  I went ahead and called just now and they said that he'd be happy to place an order, but that they're totally sold out at the moment.

He said more were being ordered and that I should try back in a couple of weeks.

Got my two Sandcrawlers today. I am super excited to finally have this after first hearing about it at SWCO.

I called again and tried to order one, the rep I spoke to said that they had a hold on that item and weren't allowed to take phone orders for it until "at least" the new year.  She said spring was more likely.

Hopefully as these get out the eBay prices drop, or they show up on the app...

Ordered the Sandcrawler Playset on ShopDisney this AM (also grabbed R4-H18 as well).

Use SHIPMAGIC for free shipping. ;)

My wife ordered one for me for Christmas this morning... I don't really know that, but she did tell me not to go buying one between now and then.   :)
