    Comments: The Lando Calrissian (General Pilot) action figure is pretty inaccurate. In a surprising move, it appears as if the figureís sculptor decided to use none of the reference material made available by Lucasfilm. Not only is this figure sporting the wrong belt, and missing the huge comm. Link that should be was on Landoís right wrist, but they sculpted the wrong shirt on the figure as well! That entirely aside, the head sculpt was fairly accurate and the cape was completely off the hook, helping this figure to become one of the coolest in the entire collection despite its discrepancies.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Lando Calrissian (General Pilot) action figure has no known 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.
