Thread: 75098 Assault On Hoth

  1. #11
    So a little more info has surfaced.

    There is a listing on brickset for a new star wars direct to consumer set.

    The set number and MSRP are the two most important pieces of info. The box size and weight is known as well. It was noted that the box size is the same as the ewok village so maybe we can expect a similar piece count.

    Set number75098-1
    Name{D2C set}
    Set type Normal
    ThemeStar Wars
    Year released 2015
    RRP$249.99
    Dimensions58.2 x 48 x 9.1 cm
    (22.9 x 18.9 x 3.6 in)
    Weight2.96Kg (6.52 lb)

    You put everything in metric (the correct scale, ftw), but is the price US? or British Pounds
    If US, with typical SW pricing, that puts the set about 1300-1800 pieces.
    if in pounds, then it's probably 2100-2500 pieces.

    The price is US$.

    1300 pieces for a $250 set? Are there any examples of that?

    The Ewok Village was $250 and was a hair under 2000 pieces.

    Yeah, no, something must be off with that. The Slave 1 was 1996 pcs and sold for $199. The 1300 pcs sets are typically in the $130-$150ish range.

    I'm still holding out hope that this rumor is actually a UCS AT-AT. $250 price tag for about 2000 pieces. That'll work.

    I just copied/pasted that informational part from brick set...

    The Ewok village, that it is being compared to because of box size, is 1990 pieces but you also have to remember that it has a ton of minifigs (the set with the second most individualized minifigs ever produced if I remember correctly).

    i expect the Hoth Base to have a lot of figs too, but maybe not that many. My guess is that it will be in the 1800-2100 piece range.

    Hoth was my favorite Star Wars location when I was young, and quite possibly still is. As long as it is not totally overpriced, I definitely want one.

    You know, I'm probably getting my Canadian and US prices mixed up.
    Red 5 was $249.99 up here, as was the B-WIng (1485 pieces)

    Imperial shuttle (2482 pieces) was $309.99 up here.
