Rumors about this set have been floating around for a while now, but it’s finally official: LEGO’s next set in the Ultimate Collector’s Series will be 75098 Assault on Hoth. It’s a play set, a bit in the style of the Ewok village, with all of the essential Hoth locations. You need to piece together 2144 bricks to build the main hangar, the trenches, the ion cannon, the Wampa’s lair, a snowspeeder… so it’s the definite Hoth playset. It contains 14 minifigures, many with updated prints, and they all look gorgeous. If it’s still to small for your liking, I have no doubt this year’s 75138 Hoth Attack set will be perfect to expand your trenches and your armies. All in all, it looks like a nice set (especially with that gorgeous box art), but to me it’s not much more than a lot of sets slapped together. To me it lacks the wow-feeling of a detailed and elaborate construction that’s so characteristic of the UCS sets. There’s no denying its tremendous play value though: this will be high on many a kid’s wishlist! This set will be released on April 30th, just in time for the May the Fourth craze, and will set you back $249.99/£219.99/€249.99.
