    Points of Interest:
  • Darth Vader is a repack of the figure from 2005's ROTS Anakin Skywalker to Darth Vader Evolutions set. This time around, the figure has a 2-piece removable helmet.
  • Originally, this figure was to include a 3-piece removable helmet (dome, mask, and breathing apparatus). However, the sculpting wasn't done in time, so it was switched to a 2-piece instead. A 3-piece removable helmet is now unlikely to ever be released.
  • This figure contains an extra "Droid Factory" piece to Build-A-Droid. This figure includes R7-Z0's head and middle leg.
  • This figure has also been found in TLC wave 3, with the head of 56D-RA-7.
  • This figure has also been found in TLC wave 4, with the head of MB-RA-7.

    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.
