    On the ice planet Hoth, Luke Skywalker leads a courageous snowspeeder Rogue Group against an Imperial taskforce consisting of several AT-AT walkers. As Luke and his tail gunner, Dak Ralter, attempt to disable an AT-AT using harpoons and tow-cables, Luke is suddenly hit by enemy crossfire and must execute an emergency crash landing.



    His tail gunner mortally wounded and snowspeeder crushed under the weight of an AT-AT, Luke boldly attacks the walker’s underbelly using an ascension gun. He uses his lightsaber to slash an opening and throws a thermal detonator inside, blowing the AT-AT up from the inside out! Indeed, Luke is a strong warrior determined to do everything he can to save the Rebels who must quickly evacuate Hoth.



    Points of Interest:
  • The Snowspeeder can be displayed hovering on the base post, or "crashed" into the snow bank. Both the hatches and cockpit can be opened, and the pilots are removabe.
  • The Rebel insignia on the Luke Skywalker and Rebel Pilot helmets are all incorrectly painted sideways.

    The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
    Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
    Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
    Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
    meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
    Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
    Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
