Weekly Set Review: [Knight's Kingdom II] Catapult

Discussion of official LEGO Castle Theme sets and products

Postby Rick-Ricks » Tue Feb 24, 2009 2:50 am

When My mother found this set at Wal-mart she bought about 8 for my brother and me to earn, two or three where given as gifts to our friends for their birthdays, so I ended up with 2.
I remember keeping one of mine intact for a while, (a whole two days) compared to the usual amount of time I keep mine together. I also remember using the other one to make the crank work to fire the catapult. (It looked horrible, but it worked.) All in all I like this set for it's pieces, and it's one of the few sets I kept intact for over a day.

Seems like a pretty good set, because of the pieces.
The colors and everything else are fine, though it could use a minifig...
I'd give it a 6/10.

House Catapult Review-

Postby Tirechewer » Fri Mar 06, 2009 8:43 am

I don't care much about piece count and rareness of pieces on a set this small and inexpensive. I care about playability. Would I like this at 12 years old. Well to be critical, it could have used an actual horse pulling it Also, the crank is so small that it doesn't throw the stone very far. I would prefer a missile like trajectory. It would have been a lot of fun if they had rigged a small Lego rubber band, and made this a tension winding catapult. Kinda like those small cars that have rubber bands. But still as an adult, great price Lego!! Clap Clap!!

I have never seen this set anywhere. Thus, I am almost positive that is why I do not care for it at all. If I was ever purchasing lego and saw this impulse set for a dollar my opinion might change, but just at a glance I dont see much of anything valuable in it (with respect to the types of lego I am after) that I cannot find in the other sets I buy...
