Released in 1980, the Kenner STAR WARS Hoth Ice Planet Adventure Set was a retooled version of the earlier Land of the Jawas set (featured here), made to fit with THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. This was one of four Hoth sets released for the movie, and while I didn’t have this one, I had the Imperial Attack Base, which was one of my all-time favorites. The icy planet of Hoth provided one of the most iconic backdrops in the STAR WARS Saga, and some of the most memorable vehicles (see yesterday’s AT-AT entry), so it’s only fitting that it also had some of the greatest play value. The Hoth Ice Planet Adventure is today’s entry into Hasbro’s Force Friday Countdown Calendar, as we look back at four decades of STAR WARS toys leading up to the September 4th release of the first wave of goodies from J.J. Abrams’ STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.
