As a Norwegian it is my duty, as a patriot, to collect the Hoth sets. At least partly, I mean, it is one of the, if not THE, coolest planet in the Star Wars universe. My Hoth collection began with 4504 Millennium Falcon, which was slightly Hoth based, since then I've gotten every Hoth set, with 10178 Motorised Walking AT-AT as the only exception. In my opinion my Hoth-scene was as complete as it could be, with last years AT-AT and Wampa Cave, but, alas, they've decided to release yet another Hoth set. It is entitled Hoth Echo Base, combining the previously released Hoth Rebel Base and Echo Base, my question is: Will it be the biggest, best, most film-accurate Echo Base to date? In that case I will have to buy it. If it's yet another tiny trench and turret, I'll probably still buy it, but I won't be as pleased. If it's a copy of the old Hoth Rebel Base, I will have a dillemma on my hands...
Let's take a look at what elements they haven't brought us yet, through their previous Hoth sets: The BACTA-tank, where Luke is restituted after the wampa-attack. This would be an interesting addition. With the BACTA-tank, those who didn't get Emperor Palpatine's Shuttle will have a chance to get the 2-1B Medical Droid, a big plus in my book. We could get General Carlist Rieekan, even though he wasn't hard to MOC after they released the officer uniforms last year. What more is there? It will be a chance to get the new, dotted-eyes, dark haired Leia figure, and... What more? The only thing I can think of would be the ION-cannon, and that thing is HUGE! What do you think? What additions could this set possibly come up with?
Actually... There is one thing... Dare I say it? Dare I hope for... THE GHOST OF OBI-WAN "BEN" KENOBI? I can't think of any other set to put him in... He would probably be cape-less, unless it's plastic... I'd say it's possible, they did it in LEGO Star Wars II... Well, I'm excited to hear your thoughts on this, in my opinion, very important topic.
