Weekly Set Review: 5138 Castle Equipment

Discussion of official LEGO Castle Theme sets and products

Postby JCool » Tue May 01, 2007 1:29 pm

I remember getting a couple of these accessory packs back in the day. My parents didn't want to shell out money to buy me big sets, so i could usually get away with getting an accessory pack or two... must have gotten about 4-6 from '92-95.

That being said there are some GREAT pieces in this pack. And just about every piece is immediately useful in a castle collection. Looking back these were a great deal as well, especially with the armor! I give it a 10/10.

I love the Lance it comes with, It is the best one they ever made. It did not have any bricks to build with so it is only a 3/10.

Just kidding, It has a beard, how can it not be cool. All the accesory packs have been great.

Not one of TLC's better sets. Limited part selection. No bricks or plates, fer cryin' out loud!!! No instruction sheet, and (need I say) little or no options for alternate models. Really, now, who needs all those weapons and helmets. Sheesh.

This was an amazing accessory pack (which I never owned). But is just edged by http://guide.lugnet.com/set/5184 for sheer use-ability of every last part...

God Bless,

This is a good set. I used it as an army builder and had about 10 or 12 of them.

I was a little peeved when this one came out tho because it replaced the set that had the Black Falcon and Crusader sheilds.

According to lugnet I own this and I think mine is still sealed. Nice parts pack with the rare white plume wheel. The rest of the parts is quite average and quite easy to optain.

I also tried to order this set through Shop @ Home, but as posted before I was too late. I really wanted that set for the armor and helmets. I remember seeing this in one of those catalogues from the sets and when I came out of my Dark Age.

Oh well.

I would like to see TLC offer more of these types of sets today, but I can get what I need via BrickLink or Ebay.

If LEGO would put Knight figure packs out like that have for Star Wars then I would definitely lay some cash down.
