WOW. . . :shock:

One of those turn your back for a weekend and guess what happens. Can't wait to get my hands on this set, err, five of these sets. :D
LEGO seems to be getting good at taking all of my money.

I think I might have to turn to a life of crime to get all these awesome sets.

Ever since the new city sets started coming out, the uber detailed building fronts, I've been holding back my money, just hoping that TLG would do the same thing for Castle. And now it's finally here, all with a truely massive amount of hard to find pieces. A whole turkey!! I'll definately be picking this up when it comes out, if not 2 or 3 copies.

It's the same as the Mutt knife in the Indy sets.

This looks to be going down in history... does anyone else think that 20 years from now the female figs will be as rare and costly as the forest lady is right now? And the set will be as valuable as ten Forestmen's Crossings..

It all depends on how many sets are produced and where they are released. 6071 Forestmen's River Crossing is a rare set because it was only released in North America and Denmark and includes a figure only found in that set. 10193 surely will be a very popular set and command high prices (double to triple the original msrp) in the future, much like Dan Siskind's 3739 Blacksmith Shop does today.

P.S. Matt and all of the Castle Team - Thank you very much for this great civilian castle set. It is nice to see some of the earlier concept models and fan ideas incorporated into this set.

I saw this set at brickcon and am planning on buying it next year, also I,m sure some of you have noticed that the tavern maiden is the same one from the advent calendar,and so it got me thinking what if the jester and the witch also come in sets for next year.

Don't need to wait for the witch on next year sets, you can get one in the massive chess set. :)

It's a seriously cool set. The water wheel is pretty neat if a little undersized but that new hexagonal plate will allow for some terrific expansion. I really like that we're getting parts lately that allow for divisions of threes and sixes. The stable girl is pretty hoochie, not that that's a bad thing. Dark brown farmers hoods, more dark brown carrots and a few more dark brown plates and such. The speed racer fenders as door and window arches actually look pretty neat.

The pics on the 'net do not do this set justice.

Question: Were there any hints/rumors of this spectacular set that I perhaps missed? Must not have been since this seems to have taken everyone by surprise. I wonder if they intentionally wanted to avoid a "banner year for castle in 2004" type debacle.

I'm glad they were able to keep a tight lid on it. It made the surprise even better. Plus, I'd hate to be comparing the final product to leaked prototype pics right now.

TLG hinted that we'd have a surprise at the end of 2008. When the preview pictures of the Advent Calender came out, we thought that was the big surprise for us castle fans. But of course, we were wrong! This AMAZING set is the true surprise!

Donut, what I mean is (is the advent calendar a preview set) example the bar maiden is in the advent calendar,and now we find that shes in this set as well ,so my thought is that the jester and the witch from the advent calendar might also be in the sets for 2009.

And a big Thank You goes out to you as well Ben. Mr. Ashton and his team talked about fan involvement, and you were mentioned for your contribution. As well, they talked about reading our forums (amongst others) and gleaning inspiration from what we were saying, and what we were building. Matt cetainly deserves much credit for the resurrection of Castle. I was able to thank him in person, but again to Matt, Simon et al, thanks again!

Of course the "no elves, sorry" comment went under the radar... :wink: We will have to content ourselves with our own for now.
