Rogue One: A Star Wars Story surprised fans by revealing Darth Vader's foreboding castle on Mustafar, and now you can build the residence of the Dark Lord of the Sith from the comfort of your own home.

It's a shame Darth Vader's castle couldn't be a little more to scale when it comes to the inside, but that would surely require a lot more pieces. Plus, at the end of the day, it's the exterior that you'll want to display on your shelf alongside the rest of your other Star Wars LEGO sets.
