I don't particularly care for this set. So-so minifigs, very little brick, and a... blah... structure.
In terms of the structure. the main thing I don't like is that it's completely open. Although almost all 1990s sets are pretty open, this one was particularly airy. I think this set would have been better with more space on the top area for a little more of a fortress look. Even though it's so small, I DO love the top bit. And the stairs are pretty cool.
If this came out now, I'd snap it up. But I'm not going to be rushing to get this on BL anytime soon.

Not totally true. I probably have less brick than anyone here, but I dislike BURPS. Not much variety, and I find triangular BURPS a pain to work with. BURPS on their own are ugly. However, if I was building a mountain, I would definately want some to conserve brick.
Only beaten by the Great 6086.
Are you serious? Or do you mean among the DM structures?
P.S. Waaay better set than Fire Breathing Fortress!
Hmm... I dunno. FBF looks better in my opinion, and is a structure versus a den.
Now that DM has asked why everyone hates BURPs, I want to ask why everyone hates raised baseplates? They are quite good for mid-sized structures.
