    Comments: "That's no moon...it's a space station." The Death Star was supposed to be the Empire’s ultimate weapon in crushing the last remnants of the Rebellion. The massive space station was capable of destroying a planet with a single blast from its superlaser. During a full-scale Rebel assault, however, this technological terror was ultimately no match for the power of the Force!



    Points of Interest:
  • The design for this representation of the Death Star allows the superlaser to change from normal (empty) to active (green) when twisting the station around.

    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.
