|Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith|
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is a LEGO subtheme of Star Wars. The theme was created to coincide with the release of the sixth (chronologically third) Star Wars movie of the same name. The subtheme recreates the battles, vehicles, characters, and locations seen in the movie. Because of the theme spanning the time period of the Clone Wars, many of the sets in this theme have been re-made and will be re-made, in the Clone Wars theme. The events of the Episode occur in LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga.
The Clone Wars, the intergalactic conflict between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems (or Separatists), are coming to an end. Anakin Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi fight in the space battle over Corusant, making their way towards General Grievous's flagship, the Invisible Hand, on which Chancellor Palpatine is held captive. When they come to the room where the Chancellor is held, they are confronted by Count Dooku, and Obi-Wan and Anakin are involved in a duel with the Sith Lord, ending when Anakin beheads him. Anakin, Palpatine and Obi-Wan then try to escape, but are captured by General Grievous and fight his MagnaGuard Droids. Greivous then escapes, leaving the Jedi to defeat the MagnaGuards and pilot the nearly-destroyed ship into Coruscant's atmosphere. After being appointed by Palpatine as his personal representative on the Jedi Council, Anakin is then told by the Chancellor that the Jedi plan to betray the Republic. Anakin doesn't believe him so easily, but starts to have doubts after the Council asks him to spy on the Chancellor. Meanwhile, Obi-Wan travels to the sinkhole planet of Utapau, where he confronts and defeats General Grievous in a lightsaber duel.
After his wife Padmé Amidala notifies him of her pregnancy, Anakin begins to have visions of her death in childbirth. Palpatine leads Anakin to believe that turning to the Dark Side will allow him to save his wife from this fate. Anakin notifies Mace Windu that he believes Palpatine is a Sith Lord, then intervenes when Windu and a team of Jedi attempt to arrest Palpatine, killing the Jedi Master and pledging his loyalty to the newly-revealed Darth Sidious.
All clone troopers turn on their Jedi Generals with the execution of Order 66, eliminating almost all the Jedi across the galaxy. Dubbed Darth Vader by Palpatine, Anakin kills every Jedi in the Jedi Temple (only Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi are among the few left), then goes to the lava planet of Mustafar and kills all of the Seperatist Council. Padmé confronts him, unaware that Obi-Wan has stowed away on her ship, and heartbroken that Anakin has changed. Anakin then sees Obi-Wan, accuses Padmé of bringing him to kill him, and Force chokes her, leaving her unconcious, before confronting his former Master. The furious duel between the former friends ends with Obi-Wan cutting off Anakin's legs and left arm and leaving him to die burning on the shore of a lava flow. Palpatine later finds him and has him remade as a cyborg atrocity. When Anakin questions his master about his wife, Palpatine tells him that in his anger he killed Padmé, through the truth was that Padmé had lost the will to live, but before dying successfully gave birth to twins, Luke and Leia.
Most sets in the theme were released in 2005 to coincide with the release of the movie, although a few others were released in the years after. The theme had completely stopped in 2008, but was revived by the set 8088 ARC-170 Starfighter, which was released in the United States in late December 2009 and worldwide in January 2010.
The only UCS to be released so far from Episode III is 10186 General Grievous.
