    Points of Interest:
  • This figure of Darth Vader is based on the figure from the POTJ 25th Anniversary Final Duel set, although this new version does have a 2005 datestamp.
  • This figure was available during the official Celebration III convention on April 20 -24, 2005. Collectors were limited to one figure per day, and their badge was punched to show proof of purchase. The exclusive clamshell case, designed with special imagery, was sold separately for $3.00 each.
  • The display base for this figure includes a voice chip sound effect recorded from James Earl Jones. Four different phrases can be heard by repeatedly pressing the button on the bottom right front corner. To listen to the different sounds, click here.

    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.
