This set ruined KK2

KK2 was always on the verge of fantasy and reality. Maybe sticking their toe over the line with the occasional "magic crystal" or something like that but in general it was always some knights bashing some other knights. They've gone and tripped over the line with this set :roll:

This set took some hard knocks on Amazon and some other sites, and I was quick to bandwagon the idea. However, once I neared completion of the "Jelly Bean" collection, I found myself yearning for it. I got it for $30 (a STEAL) on ebay and had a FANTASTIC time putting it together. It has some great "moody" pieces, from the fragmented tower, to the scorpion, and the dangling cage harkened me back to images of the movie "Willow". I think it's a solid set in hindsight, and the 2007 Crownies "borrowed" a nearly identical design for the "Skull Prison Tower" or whatever it's called...which I found to be a much less interesting set.
