SYNOPSIS
A lavish, full-color volume devoted to the creative genius and technical wizardry behind the dazzling space epic.

Illustrating the screenplay are sketches, storyboards, matte paintings, blueprints, production paintings and costume designs—the work of the conceptual artists and designers whose skill and imagination gave rise to what we see on the screen.

Here are some highlights...

•Model construction of the new Death Star
•Exterior and interior development of Jabba's palace
•Blueprints and sketches of Imperial shuttle design
•Jabba's Sail Barge, from early sketches to live-action stills
•The Moon of Endor, from construction of the Ewok village to creation of the Ewoks themselves
•New Rebel and Imperial vehicles, including the speeder bikes and Admiral Ackbar's ship

The Art of Return of the Jedi—a volume that commemorates the remarkable vision behind the year's most wonderful movie!

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.
