So today is a fantastic day! We finally have the full details of the UCS Betrayal on Cloud city set 75222.
After waiting what seems like years, news broke last night that today we would be getting full details on the much anticipated LEGO® set and here it is.
The set comprises of 2812 pieces, comes with 18 minifigures, and will set you back $349. This set is to be released to the public on October 1st, but if you are lucky enough to be a LEGO® VIP member you can get it on 13th September.
Cloud City measures over 6” (16cm) high, 22” (58cm) wide and 22” (56cm) deep
LEGO® have split the set into 4 sections, each section depicting classic scenes from the movie the Empire Strikes Back.
Section 1 features a landing platform with a sliding entrance door and Boba Fett’s Slave I ship with an opening minifigure cockpit, movable wings and space underneath to store the Han in carbonite element
Section 2 features a dining room with a table, seats for 5 minifigures and a decorative Cloud City micro build; lounge with a transparent sculpture and 2 chairs; garbage processing room with an incinerator, conveyor belt and a deactivated IG-class droid; and a promenade with tree sculpture, mural relief and opening doorways leading to other parts of the model.
Section 3 features a sensor balcony with railing and swing-out function, plus a maintenance cabin with opening round window for epic Lightsaber duels, plus a carbon freeze chamber with lever-activated ‘freeze’ function.
Section 4 features a dark-red corridor leading to the interrogation chamber with a turning interrogation chair, plus a prison cell, hangar with a secret trapdoor and tool & weapon rack, and space for the Twin-Pod Cloud Car with opening minifigure cockpits and 2 stud shooters.
So the first big difference that you notice with this set compared to the previous set is its open, which I didn’t really know how I’d feel, but after seeing it I do really like it. LEGO® has re-done the carbon freeze chamber which looks fantastic, and the sensor balcony is just amazing.
