I was actually looking forward to get this when I travel to US next month, but since it is available here in Hong Kong, I would not hesitate to get it even the pricing is extremely high at around USD 80! Hey, it is Hoth!

The highlight of the set needless to say is Wampa, although it is still a little comical, but I would say it is better designed than TaunTaun, the big claw that can hold a minifig is quite interesting.


The Wampa is separately packaged, you would still need two blue pins from the bags to connect the arms though

Talking about packaging, here are the content of each bag, the items on the right side are from small bag within each bag

But the coolest thing from the set would still be the snowspeeder, yes, there are already Nth versions of it and this one may not be any much different than the rest, but it is always exciting to see a Snowspeeder coming, the Hoth battle is just too fascinating for many of us.

But one disappointing observation is the sticker, the alignment seems to be not right for this part:

And the structure that seems to be simulating an icy environment does not look good to me either, there are many great examples out there created by Lego experts which I hope Lego would learn from.

The fake bone thing is quite interesting but the laser sword holder is a strange idea

And see, they found a way to add a Castle Skeleton to Starwars

And how can we forget Luke, I think this is a new Luke minifig, please correct me if I am wrong

Overall it is a must get set, but I hope it would not suffer the same fate as 7749 Echo Base where a lot of idle stocks are around.
