    Stops to question: Obi-Wan and friends
    Falls for: Jedi mind trick

    Comments: Jedi mind tricks often work on the weak-minded. Such is the case when a sqaud of sandtroopers ask Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi about the two droids heís escorting in a landspeeder. Obi-Wan makes short work of these sandtroopers, and they conclude that "these aren't the droids we're looking for." Luke Skywalker is amazed at Obi-Wanís ability to easily fool their pursuers.









    Points of Interest:
  • This Sandtrooper figure is a retooled version of the VOTC Stormtrooper with a new belt and added accessories.
  • Due the torse articulation, the thermal detonator and the survival backpack cannot be worn at the same time. However, the detonator can be stored inside the backpack when not in use.
  • The black-pauldron Sandtroopers are also known as Sandtrooper Corporals.

    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.
