I never thought I would see the day when lego directly copied Mega-blocks... : ( Frankly I think these sets have lost some of the surreality that I always loved about lego (think classic castle in the 80s and early 90s). Not to mention the beasts or red 'fort'. It would be nice in old brown... The cretor sets look good though....

God Bless,

Haha I really liked the way you putted things on that phrase!

Maybe some people can think on the same way, instead of only whining about LEGO, before they remember that classic castle fans aren't even close to 80% of the LEGO community.

This sets, with bionicle monsters can be fun. You can smash those bionicle parts you hate with your little furious vikings! Would you prefer crashing some other cute minifigs? I don't hehe :P

I think we all should be thankful and happy, because this way LEGO will sell to a bigger % than if it was a pure classic castle, and that is good for us!

Let the fight begin :)

Absolutely right, Akuma. I think we should really encourage TLC, be thankful for what we get (which we are; very!), and hope that this is the beginning of the bettering of LEGO sets!

There's no way for us or TLC to know that because most of the LEGO community has never had a chance to know classic castle.


I agree with others in that the monsters would be better if they were more like the Designer sets. At least the Serpent is.

Now when can we get some valkyries and valhallas?

Well actually the scans may differ (a lot for at least one) from the release versions.

Um, no. If someone dislikes a theme, they should be able to say that, within certain limits of course.

Yes, I'm sorry if you thought I meant that no one should voice their opinions. What I did mean was this: just be careful not to always be complaining, complaining (not that anyone is). And of course, just my opinion.

The Fort looks red because it uses that new Reddish-Brown color.

Personally I'm not all that impressed by the Viking sets. I agree they are a step in the right direction, but I was never a fan of the technic piece invasion since Throwbots, Robo Riders, and finally Bionicle have become popular. I am a big fan of the brick and the sets of the 80's and 90's. Just nostalgia I guess. But I don't think I'll really be collecting far beyond the Dragon Masters theme years. I did grudgingly purchase some (or really most) of the KK2 sets, but just for some minifigs and pieces. The red, green and black knights work for me, aside from the visors. But back to the Vikings, it is good to see some more imagingation back in the castle line. As well as the new minifigs and accessories to fuel our creative flame. It looks good, but it is not for me.

Really? Would you say the changes made will be for the good? (To most of us castle fans). The scans look awesome to me thats why.

Wow ... simply amazing. I think the bionicle parts will work well for the beasts. Plus, I'm glad the horns are removable. now a quick overview of what I think of the sets.

7015 -- interesting little set. the wolf looks intimidating(despite the odd legs), but I'm not sure if I like the look of the new helm without a beard.

7016 -- not much here. the boat isn't too good-looking. and the kraken looks like a mix between 4506 and 4796. Although there is a crows' nest.

7017 -- nice to finally have a bigger dragon. Glad it's not all one piece. The siege weapon in the background looks interesting, and the set includes two bearded Vikings(finally, new beards!), one with the big helm.

7018 -- amazing. The sea-snake is the best giant LEGO snake done(much better than the Harry Potter or KK2), and the longboat is awesome, i don't know where to start. so i won't(a lot of others have covered my awe)

7019 -- nice fort, but if I get it, I'll probably modify it so it's not in the water. Chrome euro armor, great design, great Vikings, red beard ... the only downside is the beast.
