    Comments: The ideal puirsuit and quick strike fighter, the A-Wing easily outclassed even the fastest and most maneuverable Imperial fighter craft. Though light armor and armament made it vulnerable to the superior numbers of ships often fielded by the Empire, the tiny ship was nearly impossible to hit for the slow moving asrtillery of capital ships, forcing Imperial commanders into costly ship to ship combat. The sheer skill required to take full advantage of the A-Wing's capabilities made it the ship of choice for many of the Alliance's elite pilots.

    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.
