    Comments: Incredibly fast and maneuverable -- especially considering they are essentially civilian craft jury-rigged with combat modifications -- the Alliance T-47 airspeeder is nearly unmatched in aerial combat effectiveness within the two-dimensional constraints of atmospheric flight. Heavy armor supplements an already rugged airframe; two elements especially important to Luke, who just took a solid hit from an AT-AT turbolaser and then plowed into the glacial permafrost at near top speed.

    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.
