More LEGO Star Wars UCS Assault on Hoth (75098) Details

LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base

A few months ago, I posted some details about the upcoming LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base including the set number of 75098 with a recommended retail price of $249.99 which was found over on Brickset.

I have some more details about the set from a very reliable source. The set is actually called the Assault on Hoth (75098) and it will be a Ultimate Collector Series set. Pretty much everything that was shown in the mini movie will be in the set minus the AT-ATs. You can see some of the stuff in the screenshots I took above and below. Han is also shown riding the Tauntaun as well as a small Wampa cave with the Wampa bigfig and Luke hanging out.

Finally as far as the release date? I’m not sure about that but I was told that it would be released in August for New Zealand so I’m guessing it might be a May the 4th set since LEGO has traditionally released UCS sets around that time.

Upcoming LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base Confirmed?

LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base

To further speculate that LEGO will be releasing a new LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base set in a few months, there’s a listing in Brickset’s database that may have just confirmed the set. There’s a direct-2-consumer set listed with set number 75098 which has a recommended retail price of $249.99. The dimensions of the box are also listed at 22.9 x 18.9 x 3.6 inches which is the same size as the Ewok Village (10236). That set had 1990 pieces so I’m thinking that the Hoth Echo Base will have around the same number of pieces.

If you haven’t watched the LEGO Star Wars mini movie that could be a teaser for the set, you can check it out over on the minisite. Thanks to Joseph for the heads up.
