    Comments: The P-38 was a tough, powerful, long-range craft; the equal of any starfighter fielded by the Republic for the entire length of the Clone Wars. In addition, piloted as they were by the droid bodyguards of General Grievous, they lacked the need for space-intensive life-support systems and storage. The designers used the space savings to pack in larger engines and more powerful weapons. With some of the most powerful weapons and shields of any fighter craft anywhere in Republic space, the P-38 starfighter presented a serious danger even to the legendary Jedi starfighters.


    Points of Interest:
  • This P-38 Starfighter is an all-new vehicle for this line.
  • It was originally designed for the Utapau militia, but has since been used for General Grievous' Magnaguard bodyguards.
  • This vehicle was released under both names P-38 Starfighter and Magnaguard Starfighter...there is no difference in the deco.

    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.
