    Comments: The Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho) action figure poisoned our minds into believing the young Jedi didnít wear his full Jedi wardrobe underneath his battle poncho. Fact of the matter is, he not only wore the tunic he was seen in before that point, he also sported a belt over the tunic -completing his Jedi transformation- on which he kept his trusty Lightsaber. To date, neither kenner or Hasbro has made a rendition of Luke wearing the complete Jedi outfit including the belt.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho) 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.
