    Comments: This repainted and refitted Mark II was pulled from the museum aboard the Battlestar Galactica and forced into service during the first few, panicked hours after the Cylon attack on the Colonies. Since then, it has been painted black to make it sink into the dark background of deep space, hiding it from visual scans. It has had every bit of unnecessary equipment pulled out, sacrificing mass for acceleration. Targeting systems have been replaced with electronic countermeasures pulled from a Raptor, allowing it to spoof enemy dradus. All these changes make it an ideal short-range, high-velocity recon and courier ship used on black ops throughout the fleet.

    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.
