Aww, cool. If someone

Aww, cool.

If someone else want to cover this, go right ahead. I never liked the Corellian Corvette design; I prefer the prequel Republic Cruiser. Too many engines... =/

TLG did a UCS version several years ago, it's one of the better UCS releases, although its biggest flaw was the weight of those engines hanging off the back. It was very easy to touch the rear section and have the entire engine section fall off.

Moving to a minifig size version seems to prove TLG figured out that minifigs are where the money is at, since they haven't done a UCS level piece that wasn't still a minifig set.

While I haven't bought a set since the UCS Falcon, it's nice to see TLG going back to the original Trilogy after so many CW and expanded sets.

What- the only way you'd accept her is if she were in slave attire?

BTW, where's Vader and the boarding party 'Troopers???
