75322: Hoth AT-ST Walker Set Review

Some things just go together like cheese and onion, jelly and ice cream, Starkey and Hutch, you get the picture. The same can be said for AT-ST and the first moon of Endor. Almost every single LEGO® version of this classic Star Wars vehicle is tied to Endor. But in 2022 things get chilly as the focus is very much on the ice planet of Hoth. In the last few years, there’s been a couple of different AT-ST sets both of which have used the same base design. This new set uses a new build as well as featuring characters connected to the Battle of Hoth. So for the last of my 2022 Star Wars set reviews it’s time to see what the Hoth AT-ST has to offer.

LEGO Hoth AT-ST

There have been a few different LEGO AT-STs over the last 20 plus years. But it wasn’t until 2016 that we got a set that truly captured the appearance of the Empire’s armoured scout walkers. As mentioned above the same design was used for the Raider’s repurposed AT-ST from the first season of The Mandalorian. Apart from the brown and red patch job on the Mando version, regardless of where the walkers are deployed, they look just about the same. In canon, the Hoth variant doesn’t get very much screen time, but they are supposed to have longer legs and a slightly different cockpit.

These differences are slightly apparent in this new set. It’s a little higher than the 2016 AT-ST, which feels like it’s due to the legs. The feet are also very different, with more detail than before. At first, I wasn’t sure I liked this aspect of the Walker as they feel a little too pointy but the more I look at them I appreciate the extra level of detail. The legs are also an improvement, with more cladding covering up the base bricks beneath.

The cockpit or head of the Walker is definitely more compact compared to past sets. But this is also an improvement and captures the Walkers which are briefly seen stomping alongside the AT-AT walkers during the Battle of Hoth. The head is also where you find a couple of play functions. These include the ability to rotate the head, using a barrel at the rear of the set. This is where you’ll also find two Technic rods, which can be pushed to activate the flick missiles. The inside of the cockpit can be accessed by completely opening the roof or flipping up the hatch.

The set also includes a smaller buildable section which is an Imperial Probe Droid. This obviously ties to events from the film and considering the scale, it’s a rather neat take on the spy probe. As the recent displayable Probe Droid taught us, the one featured in the film is largely dark grey in colour. It still feels odd not being completely black but the level of detail the little section has is impressive, most impressive.

Although on the surface, the AT-ST doesn’t scream Hoth, the Minifigures certainly do. The set contains three of them. There’s a Rebel Hoth Trooper, this uses an updated torso and plain white legs. It also features a backpack, which was lacking in the Hoth-themed Minifigure Accessory Pack. Chewbacca is also included, but this isn’t just the same old Wookie Minifigure, it features unique print detail. So Chewie is sprinkled with a little snow. Finally, there is an AT-ST driver and rather surprisingly this is one of my favourite Star Wars Minifigures in recent times. The new helmet is a vast improvement from past versions. His Imperial uniform is simple but nicely done although it would have benefitted from dual-moulded legs. But his face is amazing. He looks so cheerily mischievous. Normally Imperial folk, are rather stern-looking, not this chap, he’s enjoying his time suppressing the galaxy.
