IG-88 Star Wars Assassin Droid 1/6 Scale Figure
Originally announced by way of a slideshow shown at the Star Wars Collectors' Panel at San Diego Comic-Con on July 24, 2010, Sideshow Collectibles' IG-88 Assassin Droid 1/6 scale figure wasn't addressed on their web site until they published a sneak peek video feature on September 21, 2010. The figure officially became the first of The Empire Strikes Back bounty hunters to join the Sideshow collection when it went up for pre-order on July 18, 2011. IG-88 began shipping in January 2012.

Poll
The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
