As an important point of reference let's look at the winning bid price for the Kenner Employee Retirement Ring auction. This piece, which may not have seemed too important to many collectors, just sold for $1,500 in an open bid auction. Despite my efforts I was outbid, but it is equally interesting and reassuring to see the value some collectors place on Kenner's vision of Star Wars and maybe it is time for the community to demand current licensees to fully appreciate, respect and emulate the Kenner era and how it has served as the bedrock upon which all we have now was built.

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.
