It's one of those quirky little sets that makes me happy for some reason.

10/10!

:D

I had no idea the cat has been around so long... I thought it was a relatively new mold. Duh! Anyway, it's not a bad little set, if you don't mind the fig...

This set would have made a great Halloween impulse set.

Good call. One of the less absurd Fright Knights sets, and not a bad selection of parts. I'm not saying I want more than one of those heads, mind.

This was the first actual Castle "set" I bought, a couple of years ago via Bricklink. I still sometimes pull out the parts and assemble it, just for laughs. Willa/Hubble Bubble has a goofy-looking face but I do like her body design. And as far as I'm concerned you can never have too many cats, bats, or crystal balls.

Plegh...
Willa. Again.

I'll grant the 75 deg slopes are nice (can never have enough of those) and I don't recall a smaller set with a cat. This set always seemed like more-or-less a lame excuse to get rid of a buncha Willas.

I can normally find some redeeming value to get a set, but this one just reeks of fail. I don't know many kids who would spend their hard-earned $3 on this kinda set, I mean shoot, even the KKII mini catapult was better than this, and it's another catapult.

My humble opinion...

I personally think that TLC should release more sets like this, and luckily they are! The sets that are small and have a useful minifig are one of the best things about LEGO.

cheap like all the other sets ofthis size and time... They don't give so much value for the dollar now.....ANyway the pieces are good with many desiable pieces for a cheap price. Design itself fails a bit, due to simplicity and possibly a 5min design, but based on the fact this is the old lego its excusable. Value for slightly better design and part is the trade off now... This set fits badly with the other sets for fright knights, but perhaps it is a good piece getter and is cheap.

Hm.... Im not really a fan of wizards and witches, particularly those specified for a faction. Not god parts, either. 2/10.

Figs/Accessories: 3/10 (an all-time low...)
Design (then): 5.5/10
Design (now) 6/10

Overall Score: 4.8/10


Black bat, black CAT(?!?!), giant crystal ball, haters be ware!

10/10 I'd LOVE a modern [and less "flying mechanisms"] version of fright nights!!

...Oh wait, that was the Crownie/Army of Darkness theme that released while I was broke and jobless. :mad:

I must admit I bought this on ebay for the cat.
