COMMENTS
This series of comics were released in Toys R Us stores right after the release of Attack of the Clones. Each were given away free, usually at the customer service counter, though some were placed in the Star Wars aisle.

For the most part these stories can be considered out of continuity as they are basically ads for the Star Wars toy line.
SYNOPSIS
Mace Windu and Yoda give Obi-Wan Kenobi a message to deliver to their allies on Albecus. They are concerned for him, but he is not; he has the new Jedi Starfighter.

He has some time to meditate on the two hour flight to Albecus, but before he can plot his course around the asteroid field, he is attacked by Slave I.

Jango Fett fires several volleys of laser fire on Obi-Wan before he makes evasive maneuvers into the asteroid field. Fett unveils his secret missile launcher and fires several at the Jedi's starfighter. R4-P17 warns him of the incoming missiles and he manages to dodge them, but his shields are weakened considerably.

Obi-Wan then reveals his secret, the attack mode of the Jedi Starfighter! He manages to strike a direct hit on Slave I, forcing Fett to speed away.

Obi-Wan feels he will see this particular individual again sometime soon.

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.
