I guess there are some people who have nothing better to do than mess around with the image cache at, and it’s a good thing they did, ’cause they managed to dig up these images of the forthcoming 3,800 piece Lego Death Star. Lego has put out a press release (which you can read after the jump), but here’s the meat: 16″ tall, features 14 scenes from the movies, 25 minifigs and droids and a TIE Advanced fighter, preorder July 1, in retail stores September 1, $400. More pics after the jump, too.
