Below are more images taken from my lego box.
I've always like the graphics on the LEGO boxes.
Have to admit that the packaging on the LEGO will affect my consideration when purchasing.
Since I don't open up any of my LEGO sets now, the box will be the only thing I can look at.
I'll have to wait till I can have a extra space for a glass cabinet, only will I start to fix the LEGO up.

I got to know about this Death Star LEGO 10188 when I brought the DK Star Wars Visual Dictionary LEGO book.
Before I had only known that there was a Death Star LEGO 10143 which was released in 2005.
In case anyone is interested, the ISBN for the book is : 978-1-40534-747-1 which features the entire Star Wars LEGO from 1999 to 2009.

Seeing this new Death Star 10188, reacting the scenes from many familar Star wars scene, I... simply love this set!
So I started my search on the internet for more informations and look at some videos that were posted on youtube about this Death Star.
Confirmed that I really wanted this set, I set out and brought one home...

Not sure why this image I uploaded it tilted this way.
