Everyone loves to get Applause ... It's no different for Star Wars fans, as the company flound out when creating its line of Classic Collectors Series. By offering different items such as large vinyl dolls, figural mugs, PVC figurines, even keychains, stauettes, and danglers, Applause discovered a new market for character collectibles. For the 20th Anniversary Special Edition release of the Classic Trilogy, Applause created a series of toys that were available through Taco Bell.

In 1999, Applause returned with a new line based on characters from Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace. Dozens of new items were created for the movie, including the "Defeat the Dark Side" promotion through Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Pizza Hut.

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.
