Star Wars
fans will best know him for his work as Director of Photography on A New Hope, but with credits on 70 films over the span of his career, it's likely that you saw his mastery on more than one occasion.

Rest in peace, Gil and thanks for the memories.

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.
