STRING BLING Yomega - String Bling Star Wars Yo-Yos by Yomega

Yomega's Star Wars String Bling line is available in 4 different character designs – Darth Vader (red), Boba Fett (orange), Clone Trooper (white) and Yoda (green). The yo-yo is a version of Yomega's Fireball technology which is a take-apart design (great if you get knots in the string) featuring a plastic transaxle over a solid metal axle. This design provides for long sleep times while still being responsive enough for anyone to make the yo-yo return to their hand. The response system is plastic "starbursts" that enable the string to grab and return when the thrower tugs on the string.

The key feature of the "String Bling" models is the included Character Ring. This is a plastic ring shaped to match the character on the side of the yo-yo, and is worn by the player when the yo-yo string is secured over the ring, with the idea being that the ring will stop the string from cutting into the player's finger when throwing. This is a clever idea as the slip knot on a yo-yo can become very tight and cause an abrasion or callous, especially on children.

Poll
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.
