Oh noes! I'll have to be fast and get some of them before they become extremely rare and expensive :lol:


Seriously...I don't have any Kingdom sets yet, but I hope mine won't have the pink problems...

No problem with mine figs also. Originally I thought I hadn't noticed it because of being slightly colour blind :D but it seems that it may be just a problem with a certain batch.

Picked up another set this weekend.

Second of the carriage. The captaive did indeed look slighly pink on his white paneling.

1 of 10 of my nights is wearing pink... He won't tell, I'm not gonna bother asking. His prerogative.

No, they're not out; officially. They've only started trickling into TRUs, and such.

Perhaps this printing issue is limited to North America. As Stuifzand, Jojo and Ragnarock report no issues with their figs, is it possible that the issue hasn't appeared outside of the United States? I hope this is corrected swiftly as I am not a fan of these poor prints. I may be nostalgic for old sets; bad torso prints are another thing entirely.

I do hope it is a faulty batch. All the pictures I have seen on Brickshelf appear to have red torsos but I cannot speak until further firsthand evidence is seen. However thanks for the heads-up and I'll try to veer from the Bl stores centered in Asia.

It takes a REAL MAN to wear pink!

Sure the other minifigs will laugh at him, but when he cleave their hands and arms off... who'll be laughing then? :P

It's a distraction I tell you!

I am a little scared, but I will buy them anyway. I have seventy dollars saved up and rising so I can buy as many of them as possible. I will let you know if I get pink ones. I am really looking forward to getting the Green Dragons, though, as they seem neater. Let's hope they aren't discovered to have bad printing... :(

I just managed to stop in at TRU today but because of their INFLATED prices I didn't purchase any CK sets. However I am waiting for them to pop onto Amazon for some free shipping. Does anyone know if they have started appearing in LEGO stores, or the new minifigures? I am going to a store this weekend and I want to know if I should bring some extra money for them. Thanks,

Weird. My TRU had the Outpost and Prison Wagon for normal prices ($19.99 & $9.99), the Knight Showdown for $6.99 (not sure if that is high or not), but the two impulse sets were $4.99 each! Yikes! Didn't have the Prison Tower or King's Castle.

The Kingdoms sets arrived in some LEGO Stores (like mines in NJ) on May 17th, nearly 2 weeks ago. The battlepacks and the foam weapons arrived on the 19th.

You might wanna check your local LEGO Store sometime... Aside from Kingdoms, new sets for Power Miners, Space Police 3, City, and World Racers arrived. aka "parts themes" for your Castle collection.

I was given a few of the new sets by some very kind family members who saw them and while they were picking up some for themselves decided I could use a few. So now I have the wizard, jester, the catapult attack and the tower and catapult. If mine are pinkish it is not that pink so not too much of an issue. I am actually fairly happy with the new line and really am digging the new dragon knights. Their new dark grey weapons are amazing!

Yeah all the impulses were 4.99 so I blew them off immediately. Including regular farm impulse w/ pig and dog. The outpost was $19.99 so I was tempted to buy it but I would prefer to wait and evaluate before I buy. The Prison wagon(pretty sure) was $10.00. But the biggest of ripoff is the larger Prison Tower. $47.99? :o since when does LEGO have prices like that? And for 365 pcs? It should predictably be down to $40.00. Have the Jesters begun appearing in the US?
