    Comments: The first of the Eta-2 model Jedi starfighters was this exhibition model, demonstrated at a secret test facility in front of the Jedi Council. Featuring many of the system upgrades and mechanical tweaks suggested by Anakin Skywalker, the ship’s agility and speed even when controlled by a clone pilot impressed the Jedi observers. Unlike other Eta-2 starfighters – built on a production line – this ship was hand built, and included many personal touches left by the technicians and droids that assembled it. Though it never flew again, the ship ended up in the personal collection of Darth Vader following the collapse of the Republic.

    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.
