A new, previously unknown KK2 Set?

Postby SavaTheAggie » Tue May 25, 2004 8:27 pm

This link was sent to me by a reader of FBTB. It's an image of a KK2 set previously unseen as far as I know.

I sure hope this thing is a real set, cause it looks like nod to 80's Castle set design, in my opinion.

A siege tower and a fortified gate, pretty cool stuff.

Here's the image while it lasts:

I looks both better designed and more affordable than the existing castles, anyway. And more castle (if KK2 is Castle) is always good. :D

It reminds me of this set: battering ram

A wall with tower and gate, an attack-tower. the basics are quite the same. just the looks are totally different.

Well, my german is'nt the best, but does'nt the add say that it's som kind of special-offer for october only, wich would indicate that it's not an "official" set?
I like the design, and I would by it if I got the chance!

It is a value pack like they often did in the good days and like they did with the Harry Potter Marauder's Map Kit special.

This value pack contains two sets together for 30 (some currency). Buying them together in this value pack saves you 25% off of buying them each separately.

However, we have never seen these sets yet. I am thinking that KK2 is going to follow up the 2004 sets with some Jan 2005 sets and these are two of them that will be available a little early for this special offer in Germany.

The offer is available while supplies last.

Doing a bit of math, it would seem that the siege tower and the wall are going to be $20 each when purchased separately. They seem rather pricey like that, but at $30 for the whole thing it's actually pretty good. I hope this offer is also available in the States.

I must agree!
This set, if offered, would be the only one I would purchase and not feel let down.
Well, maybe a little disappointed, but not THAT much.
I still plan on buying as many Green Knights as I can, those breastplates are perfect for Elven soldiers!
Sadly, Bricklink doesn't have any up yet. The figs they do have, well, at $7 a pop, they're still pretty pricey.
So, this double set offer would be perfect to accomplish my plans!
Please let them offer it in the US!

I'm actually impressed with this combo. I have to agree,
it does remind me of the Battering Ram set, and a quick
way to get all the JellyBean knights.

The tower is reminiscent of scaled down Bull's Attack, with
a bit of a structure and another decent source of Scorpion
soldiers.

I'm not too keen on the large "plastic" shields used in
some of the sets, but...

to me Castle is still Castle, and these ones are worth it,
in my opinion, even though they won't be out (most likely)
until early 2005.

You know, if everyone's conclusions here are right, we might be getting a hint of some really good news: instead of being released for only one year, as in KK1, we may see a whole second batch of sets come out next year, just like in the good old days (remember ninja, year 2; adventurers, year 2; etc?). :)

(Let's just keep our fingers crossed!)
