If you're not in shouting distance of a Smyth's Toy Shop or a branch of Toys "R" Us then you might want to head to Tesco, who are putting sets from the summer wave of LEGO Star Wars sets on shelves now. Just click on the thumbnail of Deadpool being devoured by a cacodemon to jump to Brick Fanatics who shared the news.

Forty years ago today, a young director taught the world, that with even some skinny, whiny kid from a backwater planet, can stand up to the worst evil in the galaxy and (with luck–ahem, the Force) become a hero! Thanks for reinventing the heroic myth for my generation George! Star Wars is Forever!

I owe a lot of where I'm at today to Star Wars. It's the reason I met my wife, it's the reason I have my amazing job and it's why I've met so many wonderful people and been able to travel the world. Congratulations to George Lucas and the entire Star Wars community for 40 years of the greatest Saga ever told. Here's to the next 40!

Its hard to believe it's been 40 years since we all witnessed the magic of Star Wars on the big screen. Many of us were small children when we were immersed in this galaxy that George Lucas created. It has enriched our lives in so many ways and made us all life long fans. Lets take the time to celebrate this milestone and hope that we have many more years to enjoy this rich universe that has brought us so much joy over the years. Happy 40th Star Wars!!

As we celebrate forty years of feeling the Force, we'd like to thank George Lucas for everything he has given us. His vision has fed our imaginations and provided us with so much inspiration. We can't even think of where we'd be without a galaxy far, far away!

Eagle-eyed LEGO.com visitors in Russia spotted an interesting graphic on the Russian-language LEGO website earlier today. The new masthead depicts clusters of minifigs from the three branches of the holy Trilogy - Prequel, Original and Sequel. The last character in the lineup is none other than Luke Skywalker in the tattered Jedi robes we can see him wearing on the cover of The Last Jedi issue of Vanity Fair. Could this be a teaser or just promotional gimmick set to whet our appetites?
