Well, I sure did not see this coming. LEGO has been turning out many Star Wars play sets that immortalized iconic scenes. The most recent set, Betrayal at Cloud City, will not be the last.

It works like the inflatable dinosaurs, but this particular item from Rubie’s Costume Company is, obviously, not a dino.

The National Intergalactic League that incorporates all 32 NFL teams, representing both the Dark and the Light Side.

Well, pretty damn fast, isn’t it? The recently announced LEGO 75222 Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City is not due to hit the shelves until September 13, 2018 but already, the most prolific LEGO counterfeiter Lepin has already put a copycat version up on sale on AliExpress. If you haven’t heard, a South Korean man was recently charged in court for possession and selling of fake LEGO sets made by Lepin. LEGO had the help of South Korean police who raided the home of this fake LEGO dealer. I am not surprised that this raid happen in South Korea, given the country’s obsession with stamping out fake goods, including fake designer goods.
