    Comments: Originally constructed to protect Imperial convoys from the lightning raids launched by Rebel snub fighters, the Nebulon-B escort frigate soon became common on both sides of the conflict. Imperial defections and a series of important victories brought several of these powerful capital ships into the Rebel fleet. In Rebel hands, the Nebulon-B served many roles, from hospital ship to planetary assault.

    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.
