    It is a time of crisis. Han Solo, frozen in carbonite, is being taken to the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. As Princess Leia mounts a rescue mission including Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, and a brilliant young pilot, Darth Vader pits himself against a cunning and ruthless rival. Xizor is the leader of a powerful crime syndicate who seeks to supplant Vader for the favor of their mutual master, the dreaded Emperor. Their target: Luke Skywalker. Suddenly Luke finds himself the potential prize of the two most evil entities in the galaxy -- one who wants him alive...and one who wants him dead.

    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.
