I imagine we'll all sit back one day fondly remembering how much fun these toys were to play with, but sometimes action features just go a little too far. The idea, I imagine was a good one, "let's make a figure with a Jedi Kick," but in execution it just isn't quit there. Basically, it all happens so fast there's really nothing to watch. Yes, Obi-Wan III-27 kicks like a pro, but that's pretty much all he's good for. If you’re a collector that doesn't mind setting this up on a shelf and maybe showing it off to a few friends, it will be great, but if you're look for something with extended play value, keep looking.

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.
