Of course, many have already seen this on other sites, due to our inability to post pictures during our “error 503” phase — however, now that the site is back up again I thought I might as well post images anyhow!
So, here’s the full description, along with a ton of images:

One thought on “LEGO Star Wars UCS Assault On Hoth (75098) Official Description and Images Released”
I don’t like the look of this set. A UCS is a big investment., it should look and feel special. This looks lke a collection of small £20, £30, £40 sets. The components could easily have been released separately. While I have no doubt it will have lots of playability it has no wow factor.
