Well, this set came out just as I was going into my dark ages. I never had it, but it looks like a neat set. I don't personally have any catapult sets, before KK2. I'm not a big fan of the faction, I think the hearaldry had gone down hill after the dragon masters, whick were my last acquisitions before going dark. I like the design and the extra shields, although I agree the piping is strange. The breaking mechanism in the front is a nice idea, especially with it being on wheels. I can't well rate it, never having had it, but again the 80's rocked for lego. 3/06/80. I would gladly take the set if it were given me, but as for purchaseing, it's not for me.
My but it takes a long time to quit being a gong farmer, Yay POO!
