    Comments: An astromech droid on Queen Amidala’s Royal Starship, R2-B1 is one of the droids that tries to repair the ship’s damaged shield generator. As the starship attempts to get through the Trade Federation blockade, R2-B1 and another droid are destroyed by enemy fire, leaving only R2-D2 to complete the task.







    Points of Interest:
  • R2-B1 is a repaint of 2005's ROTS R4-G9. Also included is a repack of the droid harness from the original 2000 EPISODE IR2-B1 figure.
  • Since the original R2-B1 figure remains hard to get, it did well in the Saga Legends tournament. But many fans felt that they would rather see the droid upgraded to the new and improved sculpt. Hasbro listened, so that's what we see here. As a nice surprise, the harness is also included...another fan request!

    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.
