Very nice indeed. Very Happy

I'm not buying it just for full turkey, however, so I guess I'll be hitting brickshelf...

Does this mean RTB has melted away for the Pirates theme? We can actually talk about it now? Neutral

Is there an official release date for this set?


This set has me more excited than anything in recent years. Cattle, peasants, good colors... you'd think that LEGO listened to us or something.

And the RTB is still in effect for any leaked photos, sets, or details. We now can talk that pirates is coming, but no further details are out there, so it pretty much starts and ends at that.

You'd think that, but no. The laws of probability state that if you stick a bunch of monkeys in a room with LEGOs, they'll eventually produce something cool. And given the Exo-Force and first generation MM sets we've seen, it was only a matter of time before they finally produced something awesome. Smile

To be honest, I've never really gotten into Castle because I can only afford so many sets, and I've been buying from several other themes instead. However, this set may very well be the set to make me decide to re-allocate some of my funds into Castle. Sigh... If only I could afford them all. Crying or Very sad

What an incredible set!

I'm definitely going to grab this. Great design, great figs, and... a turkey! That's an immediate sale right there. Thank you LEGO!

Does anyone of the designers at BrickCon mentioned, why there is no baseplate - which connects all the buildings, market, tree - included?

Lego seems to like to sell play sets like these without baseplates. I'm thinking of sets like Arkham Asylum, Sentai Fortress or the Hoth Base of recent years as well as many others. Whereas the larger sets of my youth like the old Galaxy Explorer came with plates. No doubt it is done largely to keeps costs down. Since this set is designed with AFOL's in mind, Lego can reasonably argue that we already own lots of baseplates, and we are always ready to buy more.

So with this set I am willing to give them a pass. Some of the other sets I mentioned are geared more towards little kids who would have an easier time playing with the sets if they came with baseplates. But as for this set, I can only say that it is beautiful and I can't wait to buy one for my little girl, aka Baby Crusader.

Wow....this set is amazing. It's a definate must have. I wonder if we will start seeing more Castle sets like this...if so, then Castle is going to become a great series. I've really liked the recent Castle sets, but the big ones didn't catch my eye much, so this is out of the blue, and I love it.

I definitely going to raise funds for this set. What would be awesome is if they made a corresponding Village Defender set with a proper tower with mini barracks (not that lame one from the Tower Raid in the Orcs line) and about 2 one-level cottages.

While CDN$150 is still a great price for 1600 pieces, why would I NOT make a trip south of the border to pick one (or three) up? I guess not all Canadians are lucky enough to have a LEGO retail store nearby (~2hrs away).

Fourth-ed.

If pressure to stay competitive in the US retail market is the main reason for the US/Canada price differences, why is there an even larger than usual discrepancy on an exclusive set like this?

I built one as a scale reference, Mine's roughly about twice as big or 1/3 as big as the LEGO House(s).





Incredibly fun to build, so I can imagine the real LEGO set will be superb.

5th-ed. Don't want to turn this discussion into another international price complaint session, but the difference between the US price and the price we have to pay is frankly a slap in the face to Canadian fans of Lego.

This makes me so tremendously happy it's not even sane. . .I must say, for the longest time I was severely disappointed in TLG's caste line, I'd say after king Leo, the Lego castle just blew up in a fiery explosion. . .but this completely reversed the process. . . TLG finally restored the castle line to it's former glory! I may just need to get one of these.
And despite every other great thing about it, I'd have to say the cows, duck and fish stand are by far it's best attributes. . .

What I like about this set are the cows, I guess. I'm more of a action-based set kind of guy, and theres not much thrilling adventure in this, except for "Billy buys a fish."

But, the cows are good, giving us a whole new Lego animal, and perhaps the horns can be used for viking helms?

I also like the trans-orange feather "flames" as well. They are perfect for this dark knight fig I am working, and nothing beats a firey plume.

well thats a presumptious thing to say considering I actually involved fans in this sets early development phase and the whole idea was developed from designers participating in fan events and forums. But, please go ahead and continue to assume we don't care. Wink

Steve,

Everyone here knows I'm a presumptious patootie, but it's nice that someone finally called me on it.

To be honest, I meant it as a joke, so try not to take it too hard. I know that you do actually try hard and take suggestions. It's just that, given the choice between fawning praise and snarky wise-cracks, I generally choose the latter. It's just the cynic in me.

So yes, this set looks awesome, You are awesome. Thanks for being you!

I have to disagree. I hate the new cows. I just picked this set up from my local lego store...and well the cows don't match the sleek classic design of the horses. They kinda look like scaled-down DUPLO pieces. I wish their heads had the strong flat profile of the horses.

Always a spoilsport in the midst.

I'll wait to pass judgment on you though, as i haven't seen the cows yet myself. Laughing

Oh sorry...I should have added a much deserved compliment in my post. This set IS the best castle set I have ever owned. Seriously. The cows are the only design flaw.
