In a recent report, we uncovered that the X-Wing Racer -a new convertible vehicle in the popular Galactic Heroes line- is a repaint of the TONKA Truck Adventures vehicle known as Dunes.


Rebelscum readers Dave and Kevin point out that it looks like Dunes was inspired by an old Kenner toy from the MASK line called Firefly! Check out these images of the old toy that inspired the new vehicle. Obviously, there are differences, but it's interesting to see the same concept adapted into the Star Wars universe.

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.
