Thanks, Jojo. You beat me to it! :)

And yes, this set will be available (not surprisingly) in North America as well. It's just not ready in the site just yet.

Thank you for the excellent news Jake. I will edit the main page to show that the figures are not glued.

Heh, going to buy two soon enough. Me Shadow Knight horde is getting bigger, The Sorceror and Vladek got happy now. :D

Assuming that it eventually rolls into North America for a decent price, it becomes the ultimate instant army builder of all time. Admittedly, I'll probably Rub'N Buff all those Barbie Blue helmets. Hopefully it (and the entire Vikings line) will show up at the LEGO retail stores (nothing like the luxury of chosing from two different store here in SoCal). 8)

Thank you, Jake and Jojo! My mind is at ease now, and now this minifig pack is at the top of my list.

That is great news. Everyone can get rid of their "no glue" avatars now.

That's OK, Jake, us Americans still think you're awesome. :D Remember, Germany is six hours ahead of the U.S.; so, it's pretty understandable that Jan would get this info first. I mean, after all, he does live in the future. :P However, there's at least one advantage of being in the past: Shop @ Home U.S. still has a ton of old Classic Castle sets in stock. Ha, ha, Europe! We've even still got 6041 Armor Shop! Honestly, I own so many black shortswords that I've had to start letting my dinner guests use them as toothpicks just so I can get rid of some! :twisted:

:P ;) :D

I know this set is not being sold in the US, does this also mean Legoland CA? And do we know when this might be released in the US.

Well, I really liked the idea of a lego chess game, but I do not like the pawns' color. In my opinion, it would be better if the blue pawns had normal grey helmets. I don't like the undead queen either, it's a little ugly.

YES! My prayers have been answered! Thank you LEGO, and thank you Jake! :)

Man, this day started out so crappy, but then I get my driver's licence and learn of non-glued figs within an hour of one another! MAN, life is good. 8)

Awesome news! Thanks Jake, Jojo, and Jan (the three J's) for bringing it to us.

Looking forward to Jojo's review. :)

Yippee! No glued figs!

Seriously, I'm sooo happy that these figs are gonna be freely made. Finally, a KK2 set that has more figs than any Classic set. :wink:
