Bruce to me it looks like a cart, and a small gate house/ tower. I cab see the gare piece on the lower right and it almost looks like a brown hatch or porticuls under the barel/ crows nest.

Depending on the price point, that one might be worth picking up. It has the lion-head piece as well as a couple of printed 2x2 clip flags. Just about everything looks useful, despite the presence of the two large panels.

Yea Im with you Ak, i may have to pick it up from a parts stand point. Also the western themed sets look like good parts sets too.

You're right on this castle set. Looking at the parts again it looks like it will be a gate, with those two 3x4x6 panels topped with battlements made of these angled bricks and some blue slopes, on either side of the gate. Presumably the lion head masonry piece will be on an arch over the gate. I'm guessing the crows-nest piece will be part of a simple two wheel cart. Not sure about the curved railing piece - maybe as part of the cart. Who knows about the little catapult. Probably on top of one of the two little turrets.

The zombie-like figs in the Escape Glider look very cool. I would add Waste Crusher to my Space setup (not that I've set it up in a while...).

I'm sure I'll get a bunch of these for the parts mixes (just like I did the Time Cruisers sets).

Okay I really like that castle one lots of great peaces. I'm actually surprised that it had two castle figs and not one. As you people have said it does look like a gate with a cart. I'm really hoping it won't be to expensive.

I hadn't seen the 'unrevealed' pictures (brickset has pictures of all the 'revealed sets, due to some url hijinks). The fact that the sets have alternate and somewhat more normal builds, such as the ice cream truck, suddenly make these sets a whole more interesting to me. Especially the castle set.

I'm imagining this is part of the film storyline, where the protagonists are chasing through different worlds of lego and reconstructing normal things into more crazy contraptions.

Has anyone else noticed that Emmet (The guy in the middle, main character) has no pupils?

Also, with Abraham Lincoln and William Shakespeare, they are the minifigs that are based on real people, and they are yellow! Not fleshies!

Just my two cents.

Ah but remember young pachyderm that fleshies are for licenses and while these are from a movie, I would imagine that LEGO owns that license, so..no fleshies. Real human or not, which may be able to be debated by the fact that they could just be people in costume for the movie. Both of those guys are dead so unless this is Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (LOOOOOOOVE that movie!), they probably aren't the real men.

I believe Emmet has no pupils because they were trying to capture the classic smiley aesthetic. And as Blue said, Fleshies are for licenses, it doesn't really have anything to do with whether the figs represent "real people" or not. :)

I just noticed that the small western set has the normal kind of pistol and not the Lone Ranger kind which for me is a happy sight.

Hey guys just got the photo on my facebook from lego. The alternate build for the castle set is a gatehouse with a cart. If i can link it or dig up a picture tonight I will.

I just posted about it in the Castle 2013 set thread. Guess it's a bit of a crossover!
