Just released by DeAgostini is this part work magazine that lets you build a 1:1 replica of the practical effects model used by ILM in The Empire Strikes Back. As an added bonus this version has internal detail, lights, sounds and movable parts. Issue one is at newsagents now so head down to check it out. Word of warning: from personal experience these magazines don't tend to get carried by news agencies for very long so a subscription is a must if you are serious.

San Diego Comic Con Coverage
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.
