Kenner's Original Collection was made available pretty much all over the world through distribution partnerships with other toymakers. The first company to distribute the toys in Japan was Takara, and their product line differed from their US counterpart in many ways, making a collection pretty unique. Despite all the products created specifically for their market place, Takara did release some Kenner products including two of the Large Size Action Figures: Luke and Leia. Both were hard to find before the Tsunami, and now they may be significantly to locate, so it is worth mentioning the Takara Princess Leia Organa Large Size Action Figure currently up for auction.

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.
