Following an extensive interview with Sideshow Collectibles' Creative Director Tom Gilliland regarding the newly revealed Interpretative Maquettes concept (which I will transcribe and publish as soon as I can), there was a casual conversation on the topic of Boba Fett and IG-88 where he revealed that SSC will be handling these characters in a similar manner as their Jabba's Palace collection. If all goes as planned, collectors should expect to see all six bounty hunters released in a short period of time and they should be making space for an accompanying Polystone Executioner's Bridge diorama to display the set. In addition, it was also revealed that there is a fully fucntional prototype of the IG-88 figure and we should be seeing it some time soon. Eagle-eyed readers will spot it in the gallery attached to the Collectors' Panel story below.

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.
