75098 UCS Assault on Hoth Revealed

75098 Assault on Hoth discussion, on Eurobricks

 

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. Check out the official descriptions and all of the pictures and discuss the set in our forum, and be sure to check out the designer video below for a great overview and an explosion!

  1. I can’t believe they have done this as an ultimate, it’s just a combination of previous sets. The turrets look less like the film versions. The grey round gun turret ?
    Where is that from ?
    The only good thing about this set is shield generator which looks good.
    Never been so disappointed by a new collection.
    I’ve heard that another ultimate of a snowspeeder is in the pipeline ?
    Why ?
    Why do they insist on stuff from the original trilogy ?
    The new advanced tie and a wing combo, the ties wings are far too short.
    Also saw another two from theblive show that weren’t even in the new film.
    Arrgghh.
