    Comments: Luke Skywalker X-wing Pilot was the first official costume-changed character figure. In a way, this figure, which made its debut in the second assortment of figures, was the push that propelled the small metaphoric snowball down the frosty slope thus creating the monolithic orb on which we blissfully play that is Star Wars action figure collecting.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, Luke Skywalker X-wing Pilot has no major variations.

    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.
