The other day I happened to enter a little toy shop in Budapest, and there it was on the shelf along with some other KK1 sets. I had that particular time capsule feeling when I saw these ten year old sets MISB.
Anyway, I felt it should be left where it was. It's no good messing with time...
Thats always a great feeling that the shop owner may not want to share (dead stock sitting on a shelf).
I was very excited by the KK1 in 2000 this set cost $7+ Aus dollars and was the most expensive of the single figure KKI impulse range, at the same time there were still literally thousands of good army builder Fright Knight and Ninja impulse sets on department shelfs for around $3 - 2.80 Aus.
I didn’t know about other AFOL resources at the time and I was exclusively into army building so I purchase a lot of this set (20+) as a good armoury source i.e. shield, crossbows and halberds even though the price was double other available sets.
My appreciation of the bull knights has substantially increased over time; I’ve now forgiven LEGO for the ridiculous bull horns attached to Cedric’s helmet.
It’s interesting that at the time I purchased equal numbers of Lion and Bull knights but am now only interested in today’s Crown knight mini figures. In hindsight I would have preferred more Lion Knights. (LEGO tastes change with time)
As far as what this set is supposed to be I think LEGO just built it as a quick impulse set to display its weezil character using a relatively new alternative brick wheel to the then typical small wagon wheel as was the case with 6096 and 6032.
Why the crossbow; Cedric’s Soldiers have been taught to use their crossbows by Weezil – so be careful!
The review: the set was good then and gets better with age.
As for what happened to Weezil when he grew up, first the 2003 appearance wearing a wolfpack ensign?
I’m still undecided which of these two 2006 mini figures I’d like to think he became;
