    Points of Interest:
  • 501st Legion Trooper is a repaint of 2005's ROTS Clone Trooper III-41. This time around, the armor is clean.
  • This Saga Legends figure was released in an earlier assortment using the body of the Tactical Ops Trooper.
  • When the Tactical Ops Trooper was orignally shown at Comic-Con 2005, it sported the Super-Articulated Clone body, but the actual figure ended up being a repainted AT-TE Tank Gunner because of the tooling available at the time. By request, fans can finally get the SA body repainted in 501st colors at long last!

    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.
