Weekly Set Review: Knight's Kingdom Catapult

Discussion of official LEGO Castle Theme sets and products

If this set was in Wal Mart or something for a dollar, I'd buy it. But since it's an old set that was only available in Japan, I have no need for it.

3/10

Woop de doop. Another small set, that I never saw before, with a guy (poorly armed) and an ugly catapult. Nothing much else to say, except boring.

I get kind of tired of all these small one-fig sets. Often they are too small and pointless to be truly usefull, other than of course, as "army builders if you have the time, money and need to build one.

This is just another one to the pile.

I just found this set (and the other three) on Ebay. Starting bid of $35.99 for all four. That is 8.99 per set, so that gives us some kind of price per piece guide for this set. Rather spendy for such a small set, with no rare pieces...


I would never pay that for a set like these. Maybe if the set was from the falcon era

I'd buy it if it was cheap(under 3 bucks)

:roll:

My opinion: Its too small. When I buy a set I go for its size, figs, and pieces. This set has no value what so ever. Yet, if you want an army of bull (oney) knights, the I guess it would be a great army builder.
Respectfully submitted,

That's strange; wasn't Knight's Kingdom released in 2000?
About this set: it isn't anything special; just another little catapult with figure set. I think the colours do not reflect the style of the bulls either. 4/10

You are right, KK is a 2000 series. Of course these Kabaya set is from 2000, too. There is another Kabaya Castle series from 1998, so probably it was a Freudian slip.

This catapult again is far from greatness.

All four KK sets in this Kabaya series cost 1000¥ together when you bought it from the shelf, that's about $8 for four sets. And you got these delicious sweets...

I say, what face is that? i dont think ive seen it before and im glad i havnt lol :lol: its squinty :wink:

i think that this set is pretty cool cause it has some cool parts (besides the face). seems like it wouldnt be too expensive but it is rare and uber expensive i guess! and looks like it would be kind of cool. I would prolly get it cause its rare and cause i dont have any bull parts, and they seem kinda rare. anyway i'd say that was a pretty decent catapult also (well more like a mini-catapult)

Hordesman:Good parts,
Nice fig,
Two weapons,
Bad face,
Good set.

lol exactly what i think
