    Comments: Originally purchased by the Royal House of Alderaan for use as a consular vessel by Senator Bail Organa, this storied ship was perhaps the first vessel to be used in an act of rebellion against the new Galactic Empire. Organa used it to rescue not only Jedi Masters Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi from death at the hands of the clone troopers formerly under their command, but also to deliver the infant Luke and Leia Skywalker into hiding. It continued to serve both the Royal House of Alderaan and the Rebel Alliance for more than two decades before being captured and destroyed by the Empire.

    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.
