(I know the title above is not the correct quote, but I didn't have enough room.) This set was given to my 10 year-old younger sister and she has loved this set. She has said it's the best Echo Base set and her favorite! She built the set within 3 hours and had lots of fun with it. It was not a difficult build and it was sturdy after she was finished. There are many negative comments by several reviewers which my sister and I would both like to show why we disagree. They range from all different topics including looks, structure, playability, and minifigures. We'll first look at looks. Many have complained that it is not movie accurate and ugly looking. I think LEGO did a great job because, as one of the negative reviewers, hdbbfs said, "the exterior is shown more often than the interior in the movie." LEGO did not have much to go off of except for the controls area and bacta tank room. LEGO wanted to add playability and thus looks is not as important, because there were no looks to be based off of. Agreed, this is more suited for those who like play functions and not display. This is why others have liked previous Echo Base sets better and they also liked others because they focused on one spot such as the hangar bay and blast door. However, LEGO tried to give a great set with many functions and include as many scenes from the movie of the base as they could, which they accomplished. This leads us to the structure of the base. Many negative comments include crowdedness and complaints of certain features such as the entrance, bridge, cargo holds, weapon racks, and icicles. My sister thought it could be slightly wider, as she likes it in the square form, to minimize the crowdedness but it's not too bad. Others complain the entrance is not large enough for a ship to fly through, but it was not designed as a hangar bay, only an entrance. As a result of those who thought it was a hangar bay, they believed a snowspeeder should have been added, it should not. Some believe the bridge, cargo holds, and opening of the weapon racks is pointless. On the other hand, the bridge is a great sniper position, the cargo holds are for the fun of moving things around such as small weapons or helmets that you can fit in there, and the weapon racks open to the outside to allow soldiers get more weapon while fighting. Finally, the icicles are somewhat difficult to put back into the positions but are still a fun feature and stealthy attack against unaware snowtroopers. Almost everyone agrees that the minifigures are awesome. This is true because many are rare and new. The only complaint is of the dual faces. My sister enjoys them because of the different emotions they express and I personally do not mind them. A recurring complaint in almost all sets is the stickers. My sister had absolutely no problems with them, yet so many older builders do. I don't get it, they are not a problem with us, and we have received more than 30 Lego sets in the last 3 years. Finally, some concluding thoughts. The price is a little on the high side, $80 is a better range. Also, my sister and I agree, a Rebel soldier or two would be a great addition to the set, it needs some protecting against the snowtroopers. Other than that, this set is great and is a perfect addition to your Hoth battlefield.

As the user, Dignition, has already said in his review: The only worth-while aspect is the minfigures. As you know(if you've read my other reviews), I'm pretty critical about LEGO sets, but the sets always gets a good overall-score in the end. I'm sorry to say that this set won't get such a happy ending. (Dramatic silence falls.) The architecture of 'Echo Base' makes me want to gag. No, I'm serious; I nearly threw up when I was finished building. I got his set thinking, "Woah, look at these figures! And another Tauntaun! And some cool play features!" But in reality, I should have thought,"AHHHHHHH! This set is over-priced, the play-features aren't going to work, the whole left side looks horrible, and on top of all that, there's no SNOWSPEEDER!" You really have to buy this set(Don't.) to know what I'm talking about, but if you're smart, you'll just take my word for it. Pros: Minifigures. Tauntaun. Useful parts to build a custom Echo Base(That's what I did.). Cons: Play-features stink! Horrible design! Over-priced! (Should wait till it's on sale, and even then you probably shouldn't get it...) Very.... 'junorized'. Conclusion: Not worth the money at all. Please don't buy it. This is a new low for LEGO. I'm sorry, but it really isn't worth it. I love LEGOs, but this set is the worst I've seen in a LONG time. -Keep on building! (Just not this set.)

Comments about LEGO Star Wars Limited Edition Hoth Echo Base (7879):

finally i've been waiting for this to retire so I can submit my review (no reason) but anyway here it goes first I will talk about the MINIFIGURE they are: Han Solo in his Hoth outfit he has a hood and he also comes with his brown hair. Next is Leia she comes with a popsicle. Then there is Luke in the infirmary at HOTH Echo Base, he has a double-sided head, one showing his horribly injured face on one side and him getting better on the other. Next is Chewbacca he comes with his BOCASTER. Also there is R-3p0 he is the red version of C-3p0. The set also comes with two SNOWTROOPERS and a speeder bike and a heavy turret. Now for the set oh and I forgot to mention but it comes with a TAUNTAUN. NOW for the set first we have the infirmary that has a opening BACTA tank for Luke to go in. And also there is a swiveling hospital bed that you can put him on. Next there is a gun rack that holds 2 sniper rifles and 2 se-14 blaster pistols (the medium-sized gun) Then behind the gun rack there are 2 opening doors or windows that can be used to grab a gun (or guns) from the rack next there is a control room that has an abundance of computers and a bridge that you can put a MINIFIGURE on then it has 2 radar dishes or satellites that can spin around. Next there are TECHNIC pieces that allow it to open and close. Then there is a door where you can release and bring in the TAUNTAUN also a place for vehicles to come in and a power generator Oh I almost forgot I cant forget about the icicle traps!!! they are on both sides of the base OVERALL GREAT SET!!!!! MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!

    Comments about LEGO Star Wars Limited Edition Hoth Echo Base (7879):

    My kids wanted this set for a long time. They were so excited when they received as a Christmas gift and incredibly disappointed once it was all put together. The box is huge ( and so is the price),but the set fully assembled is very small. It took them less than an hour to put it together. We were expecting so much more. They do like it and play with it quite a bit. They especially like the many mini figures that come with it. As with all Lego sets, the quality is great. Once its assembled, its hard to break apart(and my kids really put it to the test). I'm happy that I got it for them, but I'm even happier it was on sale and not full price.

        This was the one item that my grandson wished for for Christmas and I was thrilled I found it at the store. My grandson loves his Legos and this one will keep him
        busy for hours. Presentation and display for the Legos were tremendous making
        It so easy to find what one needed.

          I recently purchased several Star Wars Lego sets online. Using the pay cash option, I payed for these sets at a Babies R Us and had them delivered at home. Very convenient! These sets are for my grandson to share with. Just like I would built Lego sets with my daughter years ago. These sets are a great way to share quality time with your love ones. Enjoying Lego building again!
