I've been collecting Castle since the begining of Knight's Kingdom II, and I thought this would be a fun thing to do. I thought it would be cool to learn people's favorite sets, so here's mine: (And they have to be ones you own
1. 10193 Medieval Market Village
- Now this is probably one that will defiantly be on a lot of these lists, but this set mainly got me back into Lego (Kinda like what got me addicted). I wanted this set really bad for my birthday. My parents couldn't find it anywhere, so I didn't get it, but I got a lot of awesome sets too (I'm not ungrateful
). But, I actually bought this set using the money from my uncle that he gave me for that same b-day. I ordered it from S@H in late March when it was still on backorder. It surprisingly started to ship in less than a week of waiting. Then a week later when I came home from school, there was my glorious 10193
! It took me about 5 hours too build total.
Anyway, it has great architecture, must have figs, cool accessories, even cooler market stand, and amazing brown cows! My favorite set of all time.
2. 7079 Drawbridge Defense
- This one actually almost beat 10193, but it didn't because it has a couple flaws, but overall, it's one of my faves.
I got this set for this past Christmas. I like to space out when I open my sets so I can enjoy each one, so I actually didn't open it 'till the 27th when a friend was over (and he built it with me). It took about 30-ish minutes to build.
This set is really cool! The highlight is defiantly the (again I say,) must have figs, but the design on the drawbridge is very nicely done. The drawbridge effect is great too. Flaws: Design in the inside/back of it is really lacking and if the chains of the drawbridge come off, they're really hard to put back on.
3. Ok now I may get yelled at a bit for this one, but my final pick is8799 - Knights' Castle Wall
. I got this set from my Grandma a couple Christmases back. I don't remember much about it except for the fun I had with it. My brother got the matching set to go along with it, 8800 - Vladek's Siege Engine
, and we had a blast.
The colorful minifigs have been great for other minifigs now down the road, and the castle pieces have been a great resource for microscale (Don't worry, I have it still in tact...kinda). The dumping rocks feature was nice as well (at the time I guess). The only thing it's missing is...Danju!
Let me hear yours!
