The rumoured UCS Hoth Echo Base set is one of the most anticipated sets of the year and is apparently intended for release in October. LEGO Star Wars videos frequently feature upcoming sets and thanks to LegoSW we might have our first look at the upcoming Echo Base in a short animation recently posted on the LEGO Star Wars website.
This video features 75049 Snowspeeder and 75054 AT-AT from last year along with several unfamiliar models. These include the Echo Base North Entrance doors, the ion cannon, the command centre, the Wampa cave, the shield generator and some Rebel gun emplacements. It might be safe to presume that these new models will make up the UCS Hoth Echo Base set.
Personally I am not keen on the ion cannon at all and was hoping that the base itself would be a little more substantial, but otherwise I am quite impressed. What do you think of the set so far?
