Star Wars: The Rise and Fall of Darth Vader (Slipcase)

SYNOPSIS
He is born to a poor mother on the planet of Tatooine. He is raised there and is fated to stay there...until he meets a Jedi Master who takes him away to be trained in the ways of the Force. At the Jedi Temple, he flourishes. Great plans are made. But his weakness is his fear of loss. At the moment the Jedi need him most, he turns to the dark side. He becomes the most-feared leader in the Empire. His embrace of evil is complete–and completely undone by the return of the heir he never knew he had.

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.
