  • DARTH MAUL

    Real Name: Unknown
    Weapon: Sith Lightsaber
    Motivation: Vengeance
    Comments: A creature of pure evil raised and bred for one purpose, and one purpose alone - the total destruction of the Jedi







    OBI-WAN KENOBI

    Member of: The Jedi Order
    Padawan to: Qui-Gon Jinn
    Doubts: The prophecy of the Chosen One
    Comments: Though he was but a young Jedi during the blockade of Naboo, he was already a cautious man, who never approached a situation without careful thought. The sudden appearance of a Sith warrior was a huge shock to both him and his master.







    QUI-GON JINN

    Believes in: The Living Force
    Helps free: Anakin Skywalker
    Assigned to protect: Queen Amidala
    Comments: More mystical in his beliefs than many of his fellow Jedi, Qui-Gon Jinn explored many undiscovered aspects of the Force.







    R2-R9

    Model: Astromech Droid
    Manufacturer: Industrial Automaton
    Vehicle: Naboo Royal Starship
    Comments: One of the astromech droids assigned to the conveyance of the royal personage of Naboo, R2-R9 displayed the characteristic bravery of his model when he trundled out onto the exterior hull of the Royal Starship, only to be obliterated by a turbolaser blast.






    Points of Interest:
  • Darth Maul is a repaint of the figure from 2005's The Sith Evolutions set. This time around, he only comes with his lightsaber.
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi is based on 2000's POTJ Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi) with an added peg on his belt. This time around, he comes with the his own lightsaber, a commlink, and a "soft goods" cloak.
  • Qui-Gon Jinn is based on 2000's EPISODE I Qui-Gon Jinn (Jedi Master). This time around, his skirt has been changed, and he now comes with a "soft goods" cloak.
  • R2-R9 is a repaint of 2004's VOTC Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) without the extra accessories. The front panel is not removable.

    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.
