LEGO strikes back with 'Star Wars: Assault on Hoth' playset

Although most of the new Star Wars toys are, naturally, tied to the blockbuster The Force Awakens, LEGO will take us back a long time ago -- to 1980, to be precise -- with its upcoming "Attack on Hoth" playset.

Arriving in April, the 2,144-piece set (priced at $250) will allow brick enthusiasts young and old to recreate early scenes from The Empire Strikes Back, from Luke Skywalker's encounter with a wampa to Han Solo's search on his tauntaun to the Imperial assault on the Rebels' Echo Base.

USA Today has a breakdown of the features, which include a base with modular wall and trench sections, an ion cannon with spring-loaded shooters that fire LEGO studs, a snowspeeder, a speederbike, a wampa cave, an exploding generator and 14 minifigures.

In addition to the aforementioned Luke and Han (with tauntaun), the figures include the wampa, Toryn Farr, a Rebel Officer that looks a lot like John Ratzenberger’s Bern Derlin, pilots Wes Janson and Wedge Antilles, the droids K-3PO and R3-A2, five Rebel troopers and two Imperial Snowtroopers.
