Pretty cool review of the new 7879 Hoth Echo Base on FBTB. It's a must-have set for me.

    Great review, terrible set, terrible price (especially at (TRU), an absolute no no for me.

    A real pity too - this set should have had more substance and at least a damn Snowspeeder >_<

    @crackseed couldn't agree more long debated on another thread about what could/should have been this set is a let down however you look at it. I was looking forward to this set more than any other for quite some time and, well just look at it! and the price is nothing short of extortion given the piece count. TLG dropped the ball plain and simple and are in cload cookoo land if they think it should retail at £92 (let's not even mention tru's little hike aswell). Thank god we have the podracer set which represents much better value and design and retains some of my faith in the sw line.

    These summer star wars sets are really pricing me out of buying them... 3 £80 or more and others not that much cheaper. It's a shame, cos I love Lego star wars but I just cant really justify the pricing.

    @burakki62 I think licenced themes will soon price everyone out of buying them! I stated on another thread that children are supposed to buy these sets with pocket money etc. but the cheapest licenced sets (that aren't battlepacks) are £20 upwards. At least the city and other non-licenced themes are still just about affordable.
