Buhs, sorry to hear about your loss
(genuinely, I'm not being a jerkwad). I agree with you, some of the UCS sets are just so awesome/classic that a re-release, even without a redesign, would be received enthusiastically (at least by me). I would love to get my hands on the old X-Wing, Y-Wing, Blockade Runner, TIE Interceptor, and Snowspeeder. Sadly, those all were released when I was younger and didn't have an extra few hundred dollars here and there. . .
