Classic-Castle Set Review: Black Knight's Treasure
Ben E. 18 XI 12

Join the Classic Castle set review discussion. Please post your opinions on the set play ability, piece selection, design, etc. Which sets stand up to our catapult of critique and which ones crumble in shame!

This week’s set is 6011 Black Knight's Treasure.

Black Knight’s Treasure, released in 1985, was a treasure cart for the Black Falcons. It has one falcon cart driver, a horse, and accessories. This is the only set with the rare light gray treasure chest.

History of Britain
Bruce 14 XI 12

James Pegrum, who goes by peggyjdb in our forum, has a fascinating ongoing project, the History of Britain, highlighting important events from British history, such as the creation of Stonehenge, the plays of Shakespeare, and the Royal Air Force in the Second World War. Here we see his depiction of the signing of the Magna Carta on 15 June, 1215, in Runnymead.

James is from London, where his involved in the Brickish Association. He also occasionally posts in our forum and on Eurobricks. His MOCs can be seen on Flickr and MOCpages. Our English readers should stop by the Stratford LEGO store to see his most recent work, the Gunpowder Plot of Guy Fawkes.

Knight Statuette
Bruce 7 XI 12

Luke Johannesen is a TFOL from Los Angeles. His creations can be found on MOCpages and he has some involvement with LUGOLA. In the second round of the 2012 MOC Invitational Tournament he was challeged to recreate an object and recreate it at 1:1 scale. He was inspired by an 8-inch tall knight statuette, and came up with this great LEGO version. So far Luke has only a handful of MOCs posted publicly, but based on this one alone he is a builder to keep watch on for his future work.

Camouflaged Outpost, released in 1987, was the first Forestmen set. This tree and rock outpost opens in three ways including a secret door. The set has six men, treasure, and accessories.

Colossal Castle Contest X
CC Team 1 XI 12

The CC Team is proud to announce our tenth annual building contest: The Colossal Castle Contest X. It will begin on November 1st and end on December 31st, 2012.

This contest is a bit different than other contests. We have a variety of categories each with one prize for the winner. Some categories require small creations and others need larger ones. Everyone, even with a limited supply of bricks, should be able to enter several categories. We are looking for creativity, not who has the most LEGO.

Check out the prizes. Eight Classic Castle sets including the popular Armor Shop, Bandit's Ambush, Dungeon Hunters, Royal Drawbridge, Black Falcon's Fortress, and Black Monarch's Castle are prizes. There are are also new books written by AFOLs, custom medieval weapons, custom leaves, and new castle sets. It truly is colossal!

Thank you to Rich Stehnach "Blackrock", altBricks, BrickArms, BrickWarriors, No Starch Press, Skyhorse Publishing and the LEGO Group for donating prizes. The updated rules can be found here. Enjoy!

Drive the admins crazy with silly contest questions here.
