DARTH VADER Star Wars 1/1 Scale Legend Edition A New Hope Helmet
While collectors were able to view the prototype in person at Celebration V, eFX Collectibles didn't open the pre-order for their A New Hope Darth Vader helmet replica until April 2011. There were two versions of the helmet offered. The Limited edition, which was a idealized version of the helmet with a production run limited to 1,000 pieces, and the incredibly screen accurate Legend Edition which perfectly reproduced every brush stroke on the actual prop. Initially, the Legend Edition was to be limited to only 250 pieces, but due to overwhelming response from collectors, eFX chose to extend the production run to the actual number of Legend Editions ordered. In the end the production run for this version was set at 364 pieces. THe Legend Edition helmet began shipping in June, 2012.

Poll
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.
