Prince Xizor's
VIRAGO

Source:
(Shadows of the Empire)

Year: 1996

Assortment: MicroMachines Action Fleet

Weapons and Accessories:

  • Opening Cockpit! Poseable figures fit inside

Technical Information:

  • Height: 21 Meters Long
  • Manufacturer: MandalMotors
  • Type: StarViper assault fighter
  • Affiliation: Black Sun
  • Weapons: Two double heavy laser cannons, proton torpedo launchers
  • Comments: The Virago was a prized possession, a heavily modified MandalMoters StarViper built to Xizor's exacting specifications. The vessel had two flight modes. In passive mode, its body armor and weapons systems are folded flush to the primary hull. In combat mode, the vessel blossoms like a deadly metallic flower, its armored wings spreading out and its pair of double cannons swinging forward to bracket the cockpit module. The Virago's greatest drawback was its voracious power requirements. Four heavy grade power generators were tucked behind each wing. Though expensive to maintain, such considerations were paltry to someone as wealthy as the head of Black Sun.

    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.
