Castle Battle Packs/Minifig Sets

Postby Username » Thu May 21, 2009 7:22 pm

I read the Weekly Review thread of 852271 Battle Pack Knights and got to thinking about all the boxed minifigs sets I bought back in the day: 6103, 6105, 6031, and, for the Ninja fans, 4805. Maybe 6026 King Lego could fit in this category. I really like these sets, and at the price at the time, they were really good buys.

So, here is my question: what type of Castle battle pack/minifig pack would you like to see? Here are a few ideas I've kicked around:

Faction pack: 4 soldiers/knights with gear plus one horse with gear all of the same faction.
Faction pack with bricks: 3-4 soldiers/knights with brick built item (catapult, cart, etc) ala SW battle packs.
Medieval Life pack: 3 civilians with gear, 1 soldier/knight/town guard with gear and small brick built item (vender stall, horse cart, etc)
Versus pack: 2-3 soliders/knights of opposing factions (4-6 total minifigs) with gear.
Mixed pack: Soldiers/knights of opposing factions plus a civilian ala 6103.

I like your ideas. Another pack could be a set like 9247 Community Workers, with civilians, several horses, carts, and chariots, accessories, and knights from every faction.

I think this idea has been mentioned in the past. In any case, it's still a fantastic idea. A large pack of figures and accessories would be an ideal way to build a medieval world. I think such a set would work better without carts, chariots or any other large brick-built objects which would eat into the total figure count. Given the AFOL obsession with amassing large armies of medieval figures, I've always wondered why LEGO hasn't bothered doing something like this.

I completely agree with just about anything here! Blueandwhite, ive also wondered about that. Cant TLC
imagine how many money they would earn if they made such things? or maybe some sets like "black falcon siege pack", with about 20-30 black´falcons with different weapons, a trebuchet and 2 balistas or something like that.
