Enjoy! FBTB also has a vast majority of all the sets in high quality (like harry potter) so here's the link to the photostream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fbtbnet/
My Thoughts:7946 King's Castle -
Honestly, I don't know what to think of it yet...you tell me!7947 Prison Tower Rescue -
I'm not really excited about the design of this one, it's got some great pieces and minifigs though. The price per piece ratio is pretty bad, in my opinion. The princess has a nice design and new hair color, but the same face...boo.7948 Outpost Attack -
This is going to be the one that, I'm guessing, is going to be bought the most (At least by AFOLs)((If you're offended by this, please, by all means, prove me wrong
)). You've got three minifigs, a reasonable price per piece ratio, great pieces for making castles and expanding a piece collection (Like the corner ones).7949 Prison Carriage Rescue -
...The price is waaaaayy to steep for this one. 50 pieces for $11 bucks? You're kidding right? Well, I'll probably buy it once, just so I can say I have it. It's nice for the minifigs right?7950 Knight's Showdown -
Personally, I'm a sucker for cheap sets, and I'm lovin' this one. Two minifigs, accessories, and good pieces. I'd probably buy a couple.7953 Jester -
Once again, sucker for cheap sets, and this one is looking great! This set is awesome for somebody who doesn't have one already. The only thing I don't like is the flags at the top. They look too awkward...7955 Wizard -
Yes! Black beard? I'm in heaven! So getting this set although the price is a bit steep. The only other thing that I don't like, is that the minifig doesn't have a printed chest! I'm still getting it though... (One more time, I'm a sucker for mini sets...)Minifigs:
Honestly...they're just reprints of crownies, not that they're anything wrong with that...for me.
Crownies *In my opinion* are great. I've got about twenty, and I'm looking forward to having a three way battle with the two new ones in Kingdoms, but they're JUST REPRINTS. Just different colors and emblems, for the most part.Concerns:
Pretty stinking sweet...
Tell me what you think!
