New LEGO Star Wars sets back in stock
In January 2022, fans of the Star Wars series, along with many other new products, received their own sets in bags unique to this line. It’s about kits. 40557 LEGO Star Wars Defense of Hoth and 40558 LEGO Star Wars Clone Trooper Command Post.
The main feature of such unusual sets was not only the packaging, but also the internal content. Both kits proved to be good enough for creating desktop clone armies.
They attracted the attention of most construction fans because they are reduced battle sets of 3 miniature figures in each. At the same time, they put a lot of emphasis on realism, and not on gaming potential. This makes it clear that the novelties were originally addressed to adult lovers of “brick” models, that is, collectors.
At the same time, the unusual sets of the LEGO Star Wars series have become very popular among children, who appreciate the designers not at all for collectible toys, but for the created game locations. All kinds of accessories, models and new characters of the sets began to be used for their intended purpose. And how could it be otherwise, if the name of the first of the two sets “Defense of Hoth” already promised an exciting adventure at the rebel base?
At the same time, to play your own battles on an ice planet, prefabricated sets have everything you need:
- minifigures armed with blaster rifles;
- P-tower 1.4 FD, well known from cult films;
- stationary protective laser gun;
- a pair of small stationary guns, each consisting of three blasters.
Such weapons, in principle, should not stand idle only as exhibits of the home collection.
It is understandable why these prefabricated kits lingered for a short time on the shelves of toy stores. And the cost of 14.99 euros made it possible to purchase “package” sets for a wide range of consumers of products from the Danish company Lego. In general, taking into account all these factors, new items quickly fell into the category of scarce goods.
To meet demand, the Danish manufacturer decided to release an additional batch of “package” kits. Thanks to this, from the beginning of November, both prefabricated sets 40557 LEGO Star Wars Defense of Hoth and 40558 LEGO Star Wars Clone Trooper Command Post reappeared in the assortment of Lego stores. This means that the army of clone troopers has become available to those Star Wars fans who did not have time to replenish their home armies at the beginning of the year.
This time, there should not be much excitement due to the fact that a restriction has been introduced. The thing is, a hundred now each customer can only order 2 sets at a time.
