I agree with all of you:

Its awesome and about time (for a civilian set... and what a way to do it)
And no pitchfork? Sad, but not a show stopper. Im in for one.

The only problem I have is that it looks more like a MOC than a Lego set, which means that it will look a little out of place around other sets from this time period. That isnt going to stop me though... it is still wicked awesome.

Right, but that makes it more appealing to the AFOL community doesn't it? How many of us buy sets for display?

well i dont post often but i allways see the news.

I dont know about you guys but this set is something i was dreaming for years. So the truth is that i will buy it multiple times. This gives us the chance of making large enviroments. w00t I will be able to finish my city with those sets.

I only worry that if my woman see the money i will spend, i will have serious problems :shock:

After hours of watching this pictures I saw the horns of the cows. They are different from the viking-horns! Maybe they are only attached and we can use them in the viking-helmets?

This set is awesome. It has opened the door for more civilian sets hopefully. The new pieces all look useful, and I think this set will make beginner builders better. The cows aren't as impressive as Brick Forge's, but it gives the purists something to moo about. :wink: It seems that this was a surprise to most AFOL's, and what a surprise it is. This should teach the :roll: at Euroleak that surprises have a purpose. I'm also pleased that the rain of tears of non-fantasy fans will subside for quite a while. This is what I was hoping for, the best of both worlds. :D

Official Announcement from Doghouse Studios, maker of the Glomshire Series:
Due to welcome surprise of the Medieval Marketplace set, Glomshire II: Mordock's Attack will be released by mid-October. Production on Glomshire III: Lord Jerek Returns will not commence until after Doghouse Studios acquires a minimum of one Medieval Marketplace.

In other words, this is what I've been waiting for! :D I love the look of the set and am envisioning various additions/modifications and outright MOC'ing that I can do to expand my little films into a series.

Great looking set...I'd change a few things about it, but I'm not gonna complain. I'm not really surprised that they came out with a set like this. What is surprising is the's a complete 180 from the direction they've been taking the fantasy castle line. Which is great since I don't care about the fantasy elements.

Sanctified Bovine!
It's been a while since that was appropriate.

And here I thought that buying two of the Castle Advent calendars was my Christmas present to myself.

I will now have to enter into negotiations with my NLSO about getting this set (multiple times???).

Apart from that, I am speechless.

Thank you, TLC.

This was a jaw-dropper.

No pitchfork does suck, but is anyone else as excited as I am for two cows and two troths?! Troths! And those brickbuilt chickens are fantastic.

When I get a few spare bucks I'm going to nab this and a Knight's Battle Pack and an Advent Calendar for good measure. After all, the evil hordes have to have somebody to attack, or what's the point in having defenders? And what's a busy market scene without a Jester entertaining the kiddies?

Now I just can't wait for some of those Elf sets to hit ... I have enough warriors, thieves and barbarians to last me a long time ...

I don't mean to gush with hyperbole but I honestly thinking this is the greatest Castle Set LEGO has made, including classic.

And I grew up playing with all the Forestmen and Black Monarch sets.
P.S. If you need help making MOCs, making posts, or don't know what to do next, please, let me know! I'm here to help! ;)

Wow, go away for a few days and look what I miss. This looks to be the best castle set ever.

Peasants, cows, horses and a turkey! I want at least two of this set. Practically everything we've ever asked for. Even plumes on the chickens.
