Don't worry about it. Jojo is just being cutesy.

Are those custom minifigs?
Excuse my noobyness but I haven't been a fan of Castle very long. I first got interested in Castle when KK2 was around (blah) (I was too young before that to be interested in Castle stuff).

My dad was too old to catch the Lego wave (he was 34 when I was born, and mom was 35), but he had something called "American Blocks" or some such. I think they were only available as 2*4 red blocks with some white (?) roof pieces.

I felt sorry about Jojo. As a man devoted to charity I'd suggest to trade your 40 for 400 jellybeans :twisted: I'm kidding of course - there is no power on Earth that could make me buy even 40 jellybeans.

Okay, but what about 40 KK2 figs? :P

Anyway, due to an appalling lack of cash on my part, I only have three crown knights. But my financial condition has improved lately, so I'm hoping to update that dire, small figure.

Hmm that made me think. Are other American AFOLs waiting for their rebate checks to spend them on Legos? $600.00 could buy an awful lot of Crownies... :D

Here's my crown "army":

It's pretty small, but enough for my needs. 8 knights (4 mounted), 6 men-at-arms, 7 spearmen, 5 axemen, 3 archers, and 2 crossbowmen.


DaleDVM: Being an AFOL, yet still a dependent, I only got $300, but I can tell you that I spent a third of it on a Lego PaB order :wink:
