    Comments: A tough, aggressive short-range fighter, the V-19 Torrent experienced an expanding role throughout the Clone Wars. originally intended as an assault fighter configured to destroy an enemy capital ship's fighter escort, it quickly graduated to planetary assault at the Battle of Muunilist, and then to escort and defense after a retrofit added a small hyperdrive engine. Complex controls kept it from being deployed as widely as the ARC-170, but it still formed a significant proportion of the Republic space forces.

    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.
