    Comments: As the role of the Jedi Generals in the Clone Wars expanded, so did the need for equipment that allowed clone pilots to keep up with them. The heavy fighters fielded early on lagged behind the nimble Jedi starfighters. They often turned into death traps for clone pilots daring enough to attempt the maneuvers pulled by Jedi pilots, torn apart by their own inertia. The V-Wing was the answer to that, with complex computer systems and powerful engines that allowed clone pilots the same agility as their leaders.

    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.
