Originally produced for Japanese consumers, the infamous Takara Walking Wind-Up R2-D2 was sold in a little baggie before Kenner Canada made a small quantity available to Canadian consumers. Like most Canadian Star Wars items released through 1978-1985, it had its own sense of style, and was packaged on a blister card. To find one still sealed on the card is tough. To find one this nice is the thing of legends. Follow this link to have a look at this great piece!

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.
