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.

Assault on Hoth Base Set Confirmed

Assault on Hoth Base Tease Thumb

While having a look for information about the New York Toy Fair we spotted confirmation that LEGO’s rumoured large scale Hoth set is on it’s way.

There have been plenty of hints and teases but now we have something official. Fingers crossed we will get pictures once the Toy Fair kicks off.

The set is officially called Assault on Hoth Base and it will feature 2,144 pieces and at least 6 minifigures including Luke and Han. From the description it sounds like the set will be made up of several sub-builds that can connect together in various ways to create your own Hoth Base layout. The press release specifically mentions a Wampa cave as part of the set.

With a US price of $249.99 this set is likely to be around $400 in Australia.

LEGO Assault on Hoth™ Base will Challenge Even the Most Skilled Fan Builders
Experienced builders can recreate the Rebel Force’s Echo Base from Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back in an unbelievably detailed recreation of one of the most iconic scenes in the original Star Wars trilogy. The 2,144-piece building set inspires fans to build their own scouting missions with the Snowspeeder, armed with twin spring-loaded shooters, and get back to base on the speeder bike to help Luke, Han and the other Rebel heroes. The modular design enables fans to customize their Rebel base configuration, including a Wampa cave and Wampa figure.  The set features LEGO minifigure versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, K-3PO, and more. Available May 1 for $249.99.

New Star Wars And City Sets In Latest Big W Catalogue

BigW 200x200

The latest Big W catalogue doesn’t really count as a sale – it’s more of a highlight of the fact that new sets are in store now.

The catalogue reveals the everyday price for a range of Star Wars and City sets. As we’ve come to expect from Big W these prices are all a little lower than the regular RRP. While the catalogue only features a few items there should be some other items from the January release in stores now too.

We mentioned that this isn’t really a sale, but there are two Friends sets reduced…

41097 Heartlake Hot Air Balloon $28.00 (RRP $44.99, RRP Discount $16.99 or 38%)

41093 Heartlake Hair Salon $25.00 (RRP $44.99, RRP Discount $19.99 or 44%)

Both of these are great prices, so stock may sell quickly.

You can check out the full list of items included in the catalogue below, or view the catalogue yourself here.

First Look At The 2016 Star Wars Buildable Characters

There seemed to be a mixed (but generally positive) reception to the Star Wars Buildable Character range when they went on sale in Australia. Luckily for fans of the range it seems that LEGO is bringing out a second batch in January with characters from the Force Awakens.

The first picture of these has appeared via the US LEGO Club Magazine and they look pretty great (Click on the picture for a big version).

2016 Star Wars Buildable Characters

The six characters includes are: Poe Damaron, Finn, Rey, Captain Phasma, First Order Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren.

I suspect the characters wearing helmets are going to be more popular as they seem better suited to the style.
