While you do still see point of purchase action figure display bins and hanging signs from time to time (like right now actually...), they are all an important part of the history of the Original Kenner Collection. In the US, Kenner produced five different display bins for the Star Wars figures between 1978-79. Follow this link to check out one of the 1978 12 Back bin headers.

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.
