  • Comments: "What is thy bidding, my Master?" Darth Vader asks, kneeling respectfully before the holographic image of Emperor Palpatine. They have both felt a great disturbance in the Force; Palpatine believes that Anakin Skywalker's son is the cause. Vader suggests bringing Luke over to the dark side to make him a powerful aly. "He will join us or die," Vader vows to his Master.










    Points of Interest:
  • Darth Vader is a repack of 2004's VOTC Darth Vader.
  • When the base is pushed, it plays the entire dialogue between Vader and the Emperor from The Empire Strikes Back.
  • When the hologram is disconnected from the base, only the first line of dialogue is played: "What is thy bidding, my Master?"
  • This set was available from TOMY during Star Wars Celebration Japan. It was also sold during San Diego Comic Con, but without the Japanese text labels.

    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.
