If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the official release of the upcoming LEGO Bespin Duel Set, you’re not alone. Unofficial images of the new Star Wars LEGO set have been floating around the internet for several weeks.

Just yesterday, however, astute Star Wars fans noticed that the official instructions have landed on the LEGO website along with authorized images of the LEGO set.

The LEGO instruction booklet features an introduction by Creative Director Jens Kronvold Frederikson. He wrote:

“No. I Am Your Father.”

This Darth Vader™ reveal quote is probably the most poignant line from any of the Star Wars™ films; the defining moment when Luke Skywalker™ learns the devastating truth about his family heritage – and chooses his path.

Now you can build this iconic scene from the Star Wars Saga, released as an official LEGO® model for the first time, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. Happy building!”
