Hey Nelson,

This is outstanding! Any one of the individual vignettes would be great by itself, but the idea of putting them together in this way is just great. My favorite build details are the way you used panel pieces on the tomb in Haunted Haus, the cast in Comedy Corner, and the floating ghost in Wizard Woes.

I nominate Castle de Vignette as the new line of TLC My Own Creation sets (a la Siskind's Blacksmith's Shop).

Marketed in one of two ways:
1) Nine separate mini-sets (as presented);
2) Eight separate mini-sets, with each of the eight wall sets containing parts to the central courtship vignette (as is done with SW mini sets).

Either way, a great deal of fun!

Well done, Sir Nelson!

Very original idea. I really like the way you integrated all of the vingettes into a very decent looking castle. What idea came first, the castle or the vingettes? Either way very nice work!

Wow, great Vignette SirNelson. I was tinking about doing the same thing awhile back but instead with a tuder style house.

Great work!

I really iike how you have done this idea. I really like the simplicity of the keep and the sense of fun of the vignettes - you made me smile today :)
I also like the word play - Arch rivals, King of Spades - would have liked to see him in the stables ... Which came first the tower or the bungee? ...
I really like how your did the elements in the Wizard woes tower the ghost especially and the cross on the tomb.
I may borrow that idea.

This is so great, I cannot describe it. I think this is the most creative castle ever! You really inspire me Sir Nelson!

Sir Nelson: you astound me. That is sheer brilliance. You've got to be one of the most inventive castlers around. You pack so much into a small space, and with great humor, not to mention building. :shock: I love this...That tomb is really really kool, and it's so simple that I keep thinking "why didn't I think of that?" :) Great, great work, man. :D

That's a cool idea! And well executed as well. The set has a ...well... set-like look on it, and I like that.
The single vignettes are very funny, too.

That's awsome! It's so cool, and looks really nice on the outside.
I'm going to have to try that!

Thats an awesome idea dude. I love it. It would be such a great thing for TLC to release. Imagin, a line of vignettes to collect. Try and get them all to make the whole thing. A best seller in my opinion. Great job.
