The Medieval Market Village is definitely my favorite. I've bought seven copies of it over the years as parts bags, and one is currently still in its box. Not because I want to sell it. Just because I'm saving it. At some point, I'm either going to display it as-is in a future, more roomy home, or I might incorporate it into a full display after sufficient time has passed to make it seem cool and retro rather than lazy.

Though that time might be coming pretty soon. I found a copy at BrickFair VA this year, with all parts including minifigures, pre-assembled in a tub (no box), being sold by my favorite vendor for a rather delicious price. I snatched that one up, and then stuck it in my medieval town display. Someone -- not a Castle newbie -- didn't even notice that the buildings weren't MOCs until I mentioned it offhand. I figured it would be obvious to everyone, but I guess when they're slipped in between MOC buildings and accompanied by landscaping and crowd and market stalls, it's easy to miss when you're not expecting it.

Seeing the set alongside my MOC buildings was interesting. I'd never put it side-by-side with my own stuff before, even though I used the parts and I try for a very similar Tudor style. The buildings fit, but it also made me realize that I could do even better. That set has a level of detail and amount of parts that went far beyond the original price tag. I wish we could do more of that stuff rather than the crappy Nexo Knights.

6086 is easily the best IMO, I love all the cool unique pieces, the massive amount of figs and the design in general is just awesome.

My fave was the first ever lego castle I got, the King's Mountain fortress. It was my xmas present when I was about 7 or 8. It had everything. working drawbridge. working trapdoor. secret door. prison cell. basement for the treasure. It also had the ghost and princess figures. Female figures became very rare for castle sets, and I became quite sad when I lost the princess' skirt. I never got another one until the witch figure came out with the horror nights sets.

King's Mountain Fortress is an amazing set. I got it a few years ago used and it's probably one of my favorite vintage sets.

Overall, my favorite set that I own is probably either the 2010 King's Castle or the Kingdoms Joust.

My first castle has sentimental reasons (and I still have some of the pieces) - the Black Falcon's Fortress from the mid-eighties https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/ca ... %5D#T=S&O={%22iconly%22:0}

The best from a technical perspective was probably the market village https://shop.lego.com/en-US/Medieval-Ma ... lage-10193 though not a castle it was of the standard they should have aspired to all along in my view
