    Comments: Phenomenally fast and maneuverable, the TIE defender rivals even the legendary A-wing starfighter in its capacity for seemingly impossible twists and dives. Designed in response to the successes of the Rebellionís fighter forces, it is a substantial departure from previous generations of TIE starfighters, incorporating heavier armor, deflector shields, a hyperdrive and far more powerful weapons systems. Unfortunately, it is also prohibitively expensive to manufacture, ensuring that it will never be produced in the same vast numbers as other Imperial fighter craft.

    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.
