Official Details Of 75098 Assault On Hoth

The New York Toy Fair press release gave us the first information on the newest UCS Star Wars set and now that the show is underway we have a huge gallery of pictures as well as the official press release.

Introducing 75098 Assault On Hoth – 2,144 pieces, 14 minifigures

75098 Assault on Hoth Box

Hoth is one of the most iconic planets in the original trilogy and 75098 attempts to capture the entire rebel base with a selection of smaller builds that can be connected together. The modular builds include an Ion Cannon, Wampa cave and Snowspeeder among others. There seems to be a lot of people disappointed with the modular approach the designers went with.

As soon as we know the Australian RRP we will be sure to share it. The set will be available from the online LEGO Store on April 30th – so we shouldn’t have to wait too long for local pricing.

Check out the full image gallery and press release below.

    Individually there’s some cool stuff in this set. I really like the power generators.
    UCS? I don’t think so. I see at least on LURP

    Very sad :(

    I do think it is a very nice play set, if you missed out on previous Hoth sets, but it is certainly not an UCS set. This does not even hold a candle to the Ewok Village, let alone the standard of other UCS sets.

    In a way it was always the wild card, as a result of the theme, here’s hoping the other two UCS sets due out this year, meet the mark.

    Aussie price is confirmed and it’s as bad expected…$400! http://shop.lego.com/en-AU/Assault-on-Hoth-75098
