I really wish i had been able to get this set, but those days were far and long ago. Fortuantely it looks like with 07 castle we might finally come out of the dark ages.

OMG! I was dusting some of my Lego display shelves today and realized that I don't have this set. I really thought I did, but I was confused with http://guide.lugnet.com/set/1596

How bembarrassing. Off to Bricklink/Ebay to compare prices!

This was one of my favorite sets when I was younger (though I haven't gotten it again since I first came out of my dark ages). Love the knight and the ghost, and for some reason I really dug the enclosed building (essentially a shack).

I loved this set as a child. It gave me my first swivel visor, the dragon plume attachments, the breastplate, oblong shield, and of course the glow in the dark ghost. All for a small price really, and while I only had one of this set I could see where people would want to load up on it to get a small army of knights.

A great little set that any castle fan would like. Its just a perfect all round set that can be made into an MOC but it loks great anyway. :D definetly 9/10.

I remember getting this set when I was little... I loved it!! The ghost was awesome, and I think this knight ended up being one of my favorites. I think it was my first bird as well. Also, I think this small set made a good companion set to 6059 Knight's Stronghold (which I got at some point as well), since that set didn't have a Black Knights knight, just three Black Knights soldiers to defend the wall against the Black Falcons (who did have a knight in that set).

Not much to say about it, nice horse, nice knight with euro-armour and visor helmet, wall corner panels, and little rounded-top doors and arch, a blackbird, and a glow in the dark ghost (wich I didn't get).
All-in all, nice for parts but barely poor as stand-alone set.

Oh, and two squires with each one flag of different color, very nice too.

This was my very first Castle set as a kid, I was mostly into Space Lego in my earlier childhood. So this set has a high nostalgic value for me, and I love it!
Can have some fun with it too: Brickshelf link
