All across the brick press is the news that LEPIN is being sued by rogue Danish toy manufacturer, LEGO, for infringing on their intellectual property, as well as their franchised themes such as the popular Star Wnrs line. LEPIN are notorious for their highly accurate and much cheaper construction sets that are obviously knock-offs of the Danish firm's products - a trend that has seemed to be on the increase since LEGO opened more production facilities in China. Check out Brick Fanatics for more.

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.
