UPDATE: Added Official Video (thanks Lego) & Images (thanks Brickset)
Earlier today a designer video outlining the latest Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series set was uploaded to Lego’s Youtube channel then swiftly taken down (this seems to happen too often to be an error).
In the mean time some observent fans were able to get a closer look at the upcoming set including a detailed description.
Thanks to Brickset for the news!
