Both Rick and Alan have posted, via the Australian Star Wars Trading Post on Facebook, that the Rebel U-wing Fighter has been seen at Toys "R" Us - priced a staggering AU$120 (US$90) - in both South Australia and SE Queensland. Stock volumes are limited but it's unlikely that these are flying off the shelves.

Popping up all across the LEGO internet community today is a flyer (click the banner above) from a recent LEGO catalogue which highlights Force Friday deals at LEGO Brand Stores in the USA. These include a chance for VIP members who purchase the 75159 Death Star between Sept 15 and 30 to win an Escape the Space Slug set and a free Darth Revan minifig (bang goes the secondary market). Over at Brickfanatics.co.uk there's word that UK shoppers will get five polybagged First Order stormtroopers.

We've another report of Rogue One 6-inch figures from The Black Series being found, and despite the till showing them as "Do Not Sell", Rebelscum reader Shawn K. proved to be very persuasive and was able to pick up Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha) and Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu) from a Walmart in Northern Virginia! Whatever Rogue One merchandise or tie-ins you find, keep those reports coming in!

The next in-store Toys "R" Us catalogue promoting the LEGO Bricktober event is starting to get distributed now, and captures the tail end of September which includes a mystery gift with purchases of $30 (or more) of LEGO Star Wars sets in the run up to Force Friday. It's not know what the promotional set will be but Brick Fan is putting forward the supposition that it is the polybagged First Order General that appeared and disappeared on the TRU website. Click the image above for a look at the calendar.

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
