I'm saving my money too, but I think I mean it in a different way.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I do not like the direction the castle sets are taking. It's like how KK2 started out awful and slowly got better. These new sets started out all right and seem to be growing more gaudy and outlandish.
I realize they're going for a fantasy theme, and they've put out some of the best castle figures in ages, but the set designs still don't feel as tight as the stuff in the good ol' days. They all have a bulky and cluttered feel to them.
However, it's not all bad. The bridge set looks like it has a lot of good parts and figures, but the Jester seems kinda random. I also like the brick-built doors on the troll fort. I only wish they were non-symmetrical to give it a more chaotic look.
I hope there will be some smaller sets to go with these, but there's probably a limit on how many fantasy siege weapons/contraptions people are willing to buy.
Right now though, the Medieval Market is the only 2009 Castle set that's on my "must-buy" list. These others... we'll see when the time comes.

King's battle chariot perhaps the same as the skellie carriage or troll assault wagon?
Drawbridge the same as the tower raid?
Trolls Mtn. Fortress same as the troll warship? It looks to be less part intense than the king's castle siege and with smaller armies along with them so I’d assume it less.
Anyone have any thoughts on it?
To be fair I think the mountain fortress does not look bad and I will pick one up unless it is unreasonable in cost. The two troll trolls in one set is rather neat, especially with all the unique minifigs.
I think the bridge is the best though! It looks great. Cannot wait to get the Gold Knight. I hope the shield is not the simple crownie one though.

I thought that is was sure that we won't get any elves set in 2009. Am I wrong?
