Things I'd like in castle wave 2

Postby Brickninja » Wed Nov 13, 2013 9:41 am

Does anyone else have a mild obsession with that new rubber-tipped spear piece? I would like them to start putting those in Castle wave 2(I hope there is a wave 2). Also, I would like to see a focus on village life, siege engines and battle packs. As of now, I have forest ambush, The gatehouse raid, and kings castle, and they 're great. I hope lego continues this theme for a while, with an increase in the things I said.

Lego might do again. They did a little bit in the last two Castle lines, with the MMV, MVR, and the Blacksmith shop, so there's a slight possibility I'd say.

Yes, I love those new rubber-tipped spears, they are great! I sure hope they keep using them, as everyone I know (in person) loves them! I would love to see them make a siege weapons set, that would be interesting, battle packs would be awesome. Village life, I think they already made that with the Kingdoms Mill Village Raid, and the Medieval Market Village. Although I would love if they came out with another Medieval Market Village set, as I didn't have the chance to get one, and I would really like to, as it is an amazing set.

I would like to see some battlepacks, although I'm not sure how likely this will be.

Another thing I'm always praying for is new helmets to add to the mix, so I'll have a keen eye out for those. I'm doubtful that new helmets will be introduced so quickly after the Great Helm was in 2010, but a FOL can dream, can't he? :)

What kind of helmets are you thinking of? LOTR Ranger helmets? Other castle new helmets? Or new ones they should make?

My ultimate dream is for LEGO to bring back the bullet helm, but revamped with a nasal guard. Any other sort of helmets from the medieval period not already made by LEGO fall into the same category too.

Recently, there's been a surplus of new swords in the past 2-3 years, but we only got 1 new type of helmet. Bring on the new helmets!

Can you post a link to the bullet helmet? I am not familiar with that one. Yes, I agree, bring on new helmets!

I believe he's referring to the more commonly known as 'archer' helmet.

I can say I've always heard them as bullet helmets, and yes they are not made anymore.

Adding more on what I previously said, I'd like there to be more civilians in the sets as well. Not necessarily civilian themed (ala MMV or KIngdom's Mill Raid), but maybe just a man with his goods getting caught up in the middle of a Lion-Dragon battle. Or something ala Blacksmith Attack, featuring both action and a small civilian based set. Maybe introduce some new peasant prints too? We've got a plethora of civilian torsos, but we could always do with more! :D

There seemed to be a general wish for a Dragon Knight King/Castle/Fortress in the previous 'Kingdoms' line. And it seems like the current 'Castle' Dragon Knights have a similar situation, being led/ruled by an evil wizard.

So on that note, I'd like to see a Dragon fortress with King/Overlord. And possibly a bandit faction to mix things up from straight red vs blue.

I'd love battle packs, like they had in the previous 2 castles subthemes, although the forest ambush could be seen as a sort of battle pack. Wouldn't it be cool if they started using the Rohan helmet? Also, where are the halberds? They were in Kingdoms, but I haven't seen a single one in this line.

Yes, I did a topic like this on the lego.com message boards, and one thing I suggested was a return of the forestmen :wink: . Another thing that came up was ridable gryffons :D

I would be nice to see a battering ram for one side and a siege tower for the other. Also, what about a" lion/dragon knight army" set, like the army of vikings set from 2005, the uruk hai army and the mirkwood elf army. Wagons of equipment, 5 or 6 figs, and a spy from the other side. Also, a blacksmith shop, with a lion knight or 2 to deck out in all the armor and weapons. One more thing. Lose the new fancy shortsword. It's hideous. I'd much rather have the claymore, gladius, or classic shortsword.

What about the neck protector helmet but with out the neck protector, so it was like a Norman helmet? That would be AWESOME! Also, yes, bring back the bullet helm.

@overload(it wouldn't let me quote for some reason) absolutely. I would want to high five the lego designer who started making civilian sets with lots of new peasant torso pieces. Yes, more blacksmith attack type stuff!

For castle 2.0, i would like to see a return of forestmen, also i would like new village type sets. I have yet to get my hands on any as they are at preium prices. New helms an sowrds would be nice as well as the previous stated seige weapons. Also an acctual castle with minimal pannels would be really appericated!

Like many people, I'd like to see a return of a forestmen/Robin Hood/bandit type of characters. Something else I'd like to see included in any future Castle themed wave/sets would be the addition of different colored leaves and horses. Those are two things I've wanted for a long time as can be seen in other threads.

New colors of leaves of both sizes have been creeping in ever so slowly in LOTR, Chima, and Friends sets, but the overall selection and availability is pretty sad. What better way to offer more colors in larger amounts than to have a wave set in a forest setting in autumn. Alt bricks has a nice selection of colors, but for purists and even me, getting some official ones in sets would be great.

The new horses are something I've become a fan of quite quickly. I only own one brown one, but there are 3 colors to choose from. From 1984 until 2012, we have had 3 colors to choose from. They made a light blueish gray one in 2011 :roll: 28 years of 3 colors is sad. With the new design, a horse in either shade of gray would look great for statues, not to mention an actual gray horse. There are a few other natural colors for horses that I think would appeal to fans and I think having them in new Castle sets would add to the value. I had hoped that a new stable set for City or the Lone Ranger sets would provide an opportunity, but it looks as if the Friends line got a stable set and The Lone Ranger was just one wave.

Those are just the top things on my mind at the moment.

A dark tan horse with a black mane would be amazing. More horses and leave colors are definitely suggestions that I can get behind.

New helmets, as some have pointed out, would be great too, but if you think about it, we really we have a pretty good selection when it comes to those, particularly if you count Hobbit/LOTR offerings.

Here are just a few examples of helmets that have recently been/are currently available, other than the brimmed and neck-guard ones that are most common.
