When he and his fellow troopers are surrounded by battle droids, outnumbered and outgunned, he never wavers in his commitment to the mission, even if it means this battle could be his last.













    Points of Interest:
  • Captain Rex was also available as a Sneak Preview mailaway figure. This version has dirty armor with lots of 'carbon scoring'.
  • This figure has had several running changes: a "dirty" armor version was the initial release, followed by a "clean" armor version with damaged stripes, and now a "clean" armor version with clean stripes (which have been painted a lighter shade of blue than the Sneak Preview figure.)

    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.
