Oh yes they are. 6059 and 6062 are far far superior, and TLC could still build things that good if they wanted to. 6061's wall is not too exciting, but it's siege tower is probably the best one yet.
The wall in Vladek Attack Kit looks terrible. Oddly shaped, lots of large parts that don't seem to go well together, still no generic good-guy soldiers, and that blue just looks awful on the wall. Still, it has some good parts, namely the doors and minifigs.
The siege engine... ug. I dislike the big cardboard parts on the sides. The whole thing is very bulky looking, just like a lot of the KK1 stuff. It lacks the efficient and elegant design the stuff in the 80s had, but I must admit that the slopes in the centers of the wheels are a nice touch.
I think the best thing about this set is that it suggests that all portions of the land of Morcia will eventually be the host of at least one castle set. Now we just need the gang to visit a forest where bandits live in hidden tree fortreses...
...but I'm sure TLC would somehow mess that up as well.
