With so much attention being laundered on superheroes and Ninjago, LEGO has finally revealed their Star Wars contribution for San Diego Comic-Con. Sadly it's not going to fit into anyone's suitcase because this plus 36 thousand brick model of Luke Skywalker is life-sized and weights an estimated 110 lbs (50 kg). Inspired by his iconic costume and stance in The Force Awakens this build will deliver the exact same glowering performance as its live action, on-screen counterpart. Close your eyes, breathe and click on the thumbnail - what do you see? Stay tuned to Rebelscum over the weekend as we roll out our realtime SDCC coverage.

Click the thumbnail above for a look-see, and if it grabs your attention save some time in your day to visit him at his table (#EE-21) in Artist's Alley. Smoocheys to Matty-Boombatty for the heads up.

You'll have noticed that a lot of the coverage on the leaked The Last Jedi sets is starting to get pulled down. While there are some hold outs and others, despite it being nearly a week, haven't even been contacted by the company with four letters in its name it is still pretty easy to find these images. Highlighting how ridiculous it is that certain sites are being targeted while others are being ignored is this blog post by fellow AFOL and Star Wars fan Gilles Paul Tassarb. He has found a notable way of circumventing the confidential nature of the sets by pointing out that Chinese bootlegger LEPIN has already copied them and is currently distributing them via aliexpress.com. Rebelscum is in no way encouraging the sale of counterfeit licensed Star Wars merch though. So just look.

Lagging a fortnight behind the US, the British premiere of the opening episode of season two of The Freemaker Adventures is set to air today (Thursday, July 13th) at 3 pm BST, reports Brick Fanatics. If you've got some free time you could probably squeeze in a marathon of season one, or if you aren't in a rush then add the show to your home media collection via Amazon.co.uk on DVD or Blu-Ray now. Don't forget that 75185 Tracker I and  75186 The Arrowhead sets will only heighten the experience!

Yesterday's The Last Jedi promotional LEGO poster revealed the entire assortment of minifigs that would be included in the Force Friday (September 1st) release of sets. Click through for the master list and confirmation that the initial set release will not include Old Man Luke. Is it time to start a #wheresluke campaign?

If you don't want to see boxed and loose images of all The Last Jedi sets that will be available on Force Friday (September 1st) then you really, really, really shouldn't jump into this story. But if you're a bit curious then cover your eyes and peek through your fingers because one click away will make you crack open your kids' money banks and have you scrabbling behind every sofa cushion in the house to find every last piece of loose change possible. Honestly.

The darling of the Resistance has made her The Last Jedi minifig debut at last, thanks to an underground web of smugglers and spies. Exactly what the Resistance was founded on! Here we see her with a grey multi-layered grey outfit with tan arms and carrying a blue lightsaber, prompting the suggestion that Luke doesn't handle his old blade anymore. This minifig will come with the 75189 First Order Heavy Assault Walker set.
