I love the Castle theme dearly, but I am not as big a fan of it's current assortment. Locations and buildings are wonderful, I love them in this line and those we've been given are beyond great, but I tire of the constant battle sets that have no tactical landmarks within a "castle". The siege engines of the Trolls and Crowns and Skellies are well made... but they need more places to bring the battle home. The Troll Fort is just not at all inspiring when I look across the themes at what City main and exclusive assortments are available, and we only have the two buildings of the Medieval Market Village to defend for our little yellow people. In the future of Castle, I want more Castle Theme places to visit that produce market capital for the Royal Crown (whoever that might be) and if there must be a battle, let it be around those sets. Targeted prices need to be between $29 to $99 (USD) for main sets, with more in the middle/lower end of that range and more available impulse to $10 sets that offer good parts/people.
Bottom line is I don't think I can keep going in my beloved Castle theme collecting if there are no places of business, dwelling, farming, merchandise exchange and questing knights. Sets need to work together like the City Theme sets do, IMHO, to forge a Castle community (and to keep those of us in our virtual community).
