One thing Celebration V offered that no other Celebration before has had is a very close look at the origins of the visual aesthetic of the saga we love, and how crucial Ralph McQuarrie was to what we saw on the screen. Don't take my word for it though, just follow this link and check out The Art of Ralph McQuarrie Gallery and see for yourself.

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.
