The Arundel Mills LEGO Store in Maryland has revealed the first official images of the upcoming UCS LEGO Star Wars 75159 Death Star set. This was built in the open at the LEGO Brand Retail Store and is a remake of the 10188 Death Star set. Thanks to forum member rexx for the news. (via CM4Sci from reddit and EB)
The set was being built by a LEGO employee at the LEGO Brand Retail Store in Maryland.
Back of the box
The box shows a different layout of the functions compared to the previous version. But really, there’s not too much of a difference from the previous version.
Aside from the minifigures, the piece count and a few minor details here and there, it doesn’t look like there’s much of a difference from the previous version. What do you think of this new Death Star remake?
