  • Comments: Moisture farms, like the one owned by Owen and Beru Lars, use moisture vaporators to take precious water vapor from the dry Tatooine air to use or resell. A womp rat lurks on the edge of the farm as stormtroopers arrive, searching for R2-D2 and C-3PO. The troopers question Owen and Beru about the missing droids with typical Imperial harshness. When the troopers are finished, they set fire to the farm, leaving no one alive to reveal what happened.

    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.
