Weekly Set Review: 6102 Castle Mini-Figures

Discussion of official LEGO Castle Theme sets and products

Postby Legoist » Fri Feb 20, 2009 11:35 am

I think this old kind of minifig packs of the 80s were much more effective than the currently available ones.

1 pack = 6 minifigs + 1 or 2 accessories each

It's not that complicated, could cost today certainly less than 10$/e.

Now we have impulse sets of 3$/e with 1 minifig + 2-3 accessories and a bunch of tiny bricks. It's not bad, but somehow not cost-effective IMO, and despite the large number of impulse sets, you still have very little choice within a theme. Buying multiples gives you identical minifigs and too many spare bricks and accessories IMO.

The new pack of 4 city figures is a good idea, it meets my favour much more than the impulse sets. It still has less minifigs and more bricks than the old packs, but roadsigns, park benches and semaphores seem to be much more useful in multiple copies compared to the typical content of the impulse sets.

Same should be done with all other themes: pirates, castle, space, star wars, indiana jones, powerminers, ALL of them should get 1 or 2 minifig packs.

In fact, at least Castle gets the humans and skeletons battle packs, but unfortunately they are not available to all countries!

I don't think that there was a better series than the crusaders vs. the black knights. This is my childhood Lego, and these little minipacks meant as much as the castles to me. If any set gets a 10/10, than this one is it. What more could you ask of a minifigure pack?
