    Comments: The workhorse of the Republic navy, the ARC-170 is one of the most widely deployed fighter craft of the Clone Wars. Fast and well-armed enough to take on multiple Trade Federation fighter craft, but heavily-armored enough to deliver ordnance against enemy capital ships, this fighter is an ideal all-purpose war machine. In addition to formidable offensive capabilities, the ARC-170 is outfitted with a highly advanced long-range sensor suite and a substantial hyperspace drive, making it as valuable a reconnaissance platform as it is an assault fighter. As many battles are won by the Republic due to the information delivered by a single ARC-170 serving as advance scout as by ten squadrons of starfighters annihilating Separatist forces.

    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.
