SYNOPSIS
Star Wars is the ultimate movie entertainment experience of the 1970's. And now published for the first time in The Art Of Star Wars is the complete script by George Lucas, beautifully illustrated in the movie's fantastic works of art—from the first rough concepts and preliminary drawings to finished production paintings; costume sketches, photographs, and storyboards of action sequences detailing the evolution of the story and characters. Also highlighted are many of the spectacular U.S. and foreign Star Wars posters, a selection of cartoons and spin-off art, plus some of the creative art by the young fans who sustain the Star Wars theme. The magic of Star Wars lives on in the imagination and beauty of The Art Of Star Wars.

Poll
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.
