Still don’t like the UCS Hoth set? Maybe a tiny version will win you over

When the Ultimate Collector’s Series (UCS) 75098 Assault on Hoth set came out, it was strongly disliked, which carries on even today. Seeking to miniaturise it and make the set a bit more likable, IamKritch has remade it in microscale. Minifig tool pieces are used a lot here, with screwdrivers, hammers and wrenches as various laser barrels. One hammer is even used as an aerial.

The minimalist Tauntaun in the back may just be the best part.

    Damn, that’s awesome. I especially like the shield generator. I was trying to figure out how to do something similar for a microscale build myself recently. Too bad there’s no instructions…

    Wow, thanks so much for featuring my build. The Tauntaun is my favourite bit too.
    (Also just noticed that in the first image the link to the flickr page doesn’t work)
    Thanks again
