    75251 Darth Vader's Castle

    Just revealed on The Star Wars Show! An Amazon exclusive, available for preorder beginning tomorrow (October 3).

    This is a cool surprise!

    The outer design looks good but I'm not a fan of the midi/micro scale sets we have been getting recently.
    It would have to have been almost double the piece count (similar to Orthanc) for it to be even close to system scale. It's another pass for me unfortunately.

    Up on the front page too, with pics that SW.com/TSWS doesn't have yet:

    First glimpsed in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and now featuring in a story arc in Marvel's Darth Vader comic books, this imposing edifice has been given the LEGO treatment in 1,060 pieces.

    This set is an Amazon exclusive and is going to start taking pre-orders from October 4th and will cost US$129.99. There is currently no word if it will be available through LEGO.com but it is expected that it will be. A release date has not been announced - expect to have this confirmed via Amazon when their pre-order page goes live.



    Boasting a hanger and a midi-scale TIE Advanced, a holocron chamber, a weapons store, bacta tank, meditation chamber with a micro hologrammatic Emperor and a gunner's station, Darth Vader's retreat is an estimated 17" (43 cm) tall!


    As a special treat the set comes with not one but two Darth Vader minifigs - one in his black armour and new one that clearly needs a long soak in a hot tub of bacta - a pair of Royal Guards and an Imperial Transport Pilot. This last minifig is also a new one and comes from a character only seen in the immersive Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire VR experience which is currently touring the US now.



    You can view the grand reveal on the The Star Wars Show channel on Youtube. Expect to see more of this set - and other LEGO coverage - in our New York ComicCon reportage.

    Immediate buy. It's just awesome looking and will display great.
    I could do without the mini-tie, but it is a toy to play with right?

    It really reminds me of the 2012 9500 Sith Fury Class Interceptor. That was EU as well, from the TOR MMO. Great design = great lego set.

    Also, this is kinda a good example of what a Yavin 4 Massassi Temple Rebel Base could look like if they ever decide to release one. Just swap out beige for black and a mini-xwing for the tie.... and make it TWICE as big!
