UCS Jabba's Sail Barge Forthcoming?

This weekend, Rebelscum reported on the possibility of the next UCS set being a giant (and overpriced) Jabba's Sail Barge:

I suspected the timing was odd, being around April Fool's Day, and these sorts of things always happen then, but they claim to have gotten a cease-and-desist from Lego, that they show on their post.  Note that they have neither ceased, nor desisted...

People who claim the fall UCS set is a new Cloud City are quick to point out the "CC" designation that was given on lists of forthcoming sets, and I can't make that refer to the Sail Barge, no matter how I try.  Also of interest is that Hasbro just successfully crowd-funded an immense Sail Barge that is to scale with their 4" action figure line (the deadline is this week, even), and the whole thing is just too weird.

    They posted on eurobricks that the cease and desist was also their April Fools joke.

    From the article: 

    "Time to fess up - this year it was a double dipped April's Fool joke. J and B, please step forward and take a bow for your hard work!"

    Still an interesting idea though. Not a set you hear bandied about in UCS wish lists often.

    I couldn’t get the Sandcrawler through the door because apparently it looks like a big square pile of crap..a Barge would be a big pile of crap with sails on..wife wins..

    The initial rumour began not long after LEGO revealed their late 2017 Ideas spread with most members of the LEGO Star Wars community spruiking for a Cloud City set. Not all shared their belief in this expectation though, and certain parties whispered of something bigger, better and far, far grander. But no-one would break the silence.

    To spruik. There's a word rarely used on lego forums.

    A Sail Barge wouldn't be too bad. I got one for Christmas, in my early teens so about ten years ago. It's the one with lots of the principle characters, but there's another one with a blue Max Rebo figure. A bigger set, with a nice interior and a host of interesting aliens, could be quite a seller.
