Is this the LEGO Death Star crew?

The next LEGO Star Wars D2C exclusive set is expected to be the Death Star, set number 75159, with a release date of October 1, 2016. This has long been rumoured, with different snippets of information turning up over the past nine months, although reliability has been patchy.

Now, Promo Bricks have summarised information that the website considers reliable — although all should be considered rumour until confirmed by the LEGO Group. Particulary notable is the price:

3) 4,016 parts for 499,99 Euro

The new Death Star may be assembled from 4,016 parts. By comparison, the final Death Star (10188) consisted of 3,803 parts and included 24 minifigures. Has also changed the sales price. So the new model in the LEGO Store will cost 499.99 euros, 80 euros more than its predecessor.

The most interesting reveal, however, is the minifigure line-up that Promo bricks are reporting:

Grand Moff Tarkin
Imperial Officer
Imperial Navy Officer
Imperial astromech
Han Solo
Han Solo (disguise)
Luke Skywalker (disguise)
Luke Skywalker (final duel)
Luke Skywalker (Tatooine)
Princess Leia
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Darth Vader
Death Star Gunner
Death Star Droid
Emperor’s Royal Guard
Emperor Palpatine
Death Star Trooper

Is this proves to be accurate, it may be time to stock up on Stormtrooper battle packs.
