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.

LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base Set Teaser?

LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base

LEGO has published a new mini movie over on the LEGO Star Wars minisite called the Battle of Hoth and it may give a teaser for the new LEGO Star Wars Hoth Echo Base set that’s rumored to be released in October. The last Hoth Echo Base was released back in 2011 and it looks like there will be a lot of updates and play features to go along with it.

The mini movie shows the entrance to the base itself and the control room. There are also a couple of turrets shown as well as an ion cannon. The shield generator is also shown in the video which might mean that it could be in the set too. The previous version did not have it. Other things that are shown includes a e-web turret, a speeder bike, and a snowspeeders. The video also Luke hanging in the Wampa cave but whether that part will be included in the set remains to be seen.

As for the minifigures, there are some Rebel troopers, an updated Leia, K-3PO, and R3-A2 in the Echo Base scene and Han was at the Wampa cave.
