Wow! I didn't know lego had the white plumes in an accessory pack! I always thought it existed only in 6086! That said, other than the white plume, I'm not too big a fan of anything else in this accessory pack. I like the black knights' shields and euro armour, but I have plenty of those already.

If it were 1993-1994 and I knew how lego is going to progress in the next 5 years (we aren't even talking about KK2 yet) I would shell out $3.50x 3-4 buy a few packs. But at today's prices, no way :)

I wish I would have bought dozens of these (instead of zero). So much useful stuff. They should release these sort of packs again, or even just a plume pack, but that's getting off topic.

I really do miss theme-specific accessory packs though. :(

It was in two packs:

LEGO probably made too many white plumes just for one set. These packs were a good way to clear out excess inventory.

I want this pack so much, I did not get it either. It has to be one of my favorite packs. Since I do not have it, I can't give it a overall :cry: .

The accessory packs were a great way to get specialty elements when the only way we had to buy LEGO was from TLC itself. Nowadays, most of us would go to Bricklink and pick just the things we need. So, this was a great set then, but not so much now.

I never had this, but I pretty much have all the pieces. It would be cool, though, to have another boost of useful accesories. The accesories from the era of lego castle this was released in were my favorites. They were just so cool and useful! :D :D

Oh, I'm not so sure about that. I would gladly pay upwards of $4 for a very simelar product now straght from TLG. For instance if the '07 castle line had an accessory pack of the same basic make up (ie three diff. helms, six shields, bow and quiver, swords, etc) I would think that a $5 pack would actually be cheeper than buying those shiney, new, and 'rare' elements from seperate sellers on BL.

But maybe that's just me... :)

Knowing me when I was younger, I probably had this pack and lost 50% of it. I wish I wasn't so dumb now :shock:

Love these accessory packs, but wish they had a promotional fig in it, like a peasant.

I loved the accesories packs when TLG made them. I even bought a couple of the fright knight ones just to encourage Lego to keep making them. I don't understand the comments that things like this aren't so good anymore. The 2 euro armor alone are worth more on BL or Ebay than this set alone cost when released. I would buy several of a "crown knight/undead" version if TLG releases one.

Absolutely unbelievable. The array of weapons and accessories in this pack are great, including the armour, quiver, longbow, swords, and numerous shields. I hope LEGO comes up with something similar soon.

I very like this pack, because he has many necessary bricks, weapons, hats, and so forth :!:
