Images posted on Eurobricks.com show the new UCS Death Star being built by a staff member at the LEGO Brand Store in Arundel Mills, Maryland earlier today. Check out the thumbnail above and head over to their LEGO Star Wars forums to check out the other images in the thread before they disappear at the request of LEGO when it's realised that someone (*cough* LEGO *cough*) has broken the September 1st embargo.

Great news for fans of LEGO Star Wars in Australia, because a selection of the Summer 2016 wave has finally been seen Down Under. So far 75148 Encounter on Jakku, 75151 Clone Turbo Tank, 75149 Resistance X-Wing Fighter, 75147 StarScavenger and 75145 Eclipse Fighter have been found in the wild. Unfortunately 75157 Captain Rex's AT-TE and 75140 Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-Wing Starfighter have yet to be sighted. So far they've only cropped up in BTig W's in Maitland and Melbourne. Send us your store reports if you find them, and don't forget to share your excitement in our LEGO forums too! Thanks to Daniel J Eason‎ in the Star Wars Lego Australia group on Facebook.

Straight from SWNZ.co.nz comes the news that the Toy World 40th Anniversary Catalogue is out and offering reduced pricing on 75148 Encounter on Jakku and 75159 Resistance X-Wing Fighter. As remarkable as discounted LEGO sounds, the offer is only valid from 30th July to 14th August and gives some indication that the long-awaited Summer 2016 LEGO Star Wars sets are finally here.
