Euroscum reader Mattia from Italy sent us news of the first Star Wars theme park to be built in the Gulf Emirate of Dubai. Here's Mattia's account:


Dear Rebelscum,

My name is M. Mattia Im from Italy.

I have a news that may interest you to know. I work in the Theme Park industry and Im currently in Dubai where I just had a meeting in DUBAI LAND.

DUBAI LAND is a 107 square kilometer project that involve the construction of:

UNIVERSAL STUDIOS and other park which also for the first time in the world an entire STAR WARS PARK.

The project manager told me that George Lucas will personally follow the construction.

THIS IS GREAT

They also told me that is still a secret but the construction already started and will be over in 4 years.

Greetings

M. Mattia



UPDATE: Until more details are available, we suggest a virtual visit to DUBAILAND's website.

The traditional bottle of champagne has been broken on the bow of the latest addition the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series fleet and The Devastator has been officially launched. As a LEGO Star Wars fan and collector, how do you feel about this new UCS set?
Love it - definitely going to add one to my cart!
Wow - makes me wish I'd signed up to the VIP Rewards programme now!
It's great - now isn't the right time, but it's on my list!
I'm economising - will get it on clearance.
Not for me - too big/too expensive/too grey.
What is this LEGO you speak of?
