  • Comments: Among the Emperor's elite shock troopers, the Shadow Troopers utilize advanced cloaking technology to ambush enemies. They can remain completely undetectable until the moment they strike. With keen tactical awareness, the Shadow Troopers can cross Rebel lines undetected and use their stealth skills to gather intelligence that can be used to organize future Imperial attacks.

    Emperor Palpatine: The Emperor relies on information as much as fear and brute force to achieve his aims. His Shadow Troopers provide him with intelligence that can be gained no other way from enemies - or supposed allies - who may be plotting against him.

    Shadow Stormtroopers: These Imperial shock troopers are given advanced training in stealth tactics, in addition to standard combat techniques. They are, indeed, shadows: blending in with such skill that their targets remain unaware that these covert spies were ever present.

    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.
