    Comments: After the fall of the Republic and the emergence of the Galactic Empire, war planners determine that a new start is needed. Slow, heavy starfighters are de-emphasized in favor of more nimble and numerous single-seat strike craft. The V-wing, already in limited production, is moved to the top of the priority list, and vast numbers of this dangerous craft are produced in a short time. As the Empire begins to consolidate its powers in the wake of the Clone Wars, swarms of these starfighters become a common sight in the skies over worlds reluctant to pay homage to their new Emperor.

    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.
