    Comments: Once Alliance engineers perfected the combat and environmental refit of the civilian T-47 airspeeder on Hoth, modifying similar speeders to other extreme planets became simple. As workarounds and techniques filtered throughout the Rebel data network, the T-47 became a common display of Alliance airpower, especially against Imperial armored infantry. Worlds on which the Rebellion had previously been forced underground by seemingly invincible Imperial walkers suddenly exploded into open war. Though no force in the galaxy could stand against the full might of the Imperial army, the modified airspeeder gave the Rebels an undeniable edge.

    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.
