    Comments: Even at the beginning of the Clone Wars, Trade Federation manufacturing capacity quickly outstripped that of the Republic. Soon, breaking planetary blockades became highly dangerous, as Republic capital ships would be faced with twice their number on the Separatist side. Enter the Y-Wing starfighter. The low profile, heavily shielded fighter could fly directly into a storm of defensive fire, deliver a fusilade of missiles, and fly to safety as the enemy ships blossomed into flame behind them.

    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.
