But you have to remember that the sets are ment for children and i can't imagine a eight year child having all the Castle sets.
Since I was a child back in the day when the Classic figures were released I thought this would be a fair comparison.
I made up a list of all of the crownies released so far. This includes the medieval market village, but not the other 2009 sets. If you buy one of each set including the game sets you get.
25 light infantry.
8 heavy infantry.
7 heavy cavalry.
I suppose when you look at classic castle, the crusaders were released over a 9 year span nonstop adding up to 60 figures. Although a few years they only had 1 or 2 sets they were in. If the crownies were still going 6 years from now I think I would poop my pants.
I think we are in a different age right now so I will not worry about that.
As it stands if you include this years leaked releases the crownies will have as many minifigs in sets as any of the other factions ever made. I put it at 60 crownies after this years releases, although 5 of those are kings. Obviously it is possible that late this year some sets may be released as well.
In conclusion a cowardly scottish peasant once said. "Home... The crownies are too many!"
In 3 years the crownies have reached the levels of the Crusaders... (and could surpass them late this year) If someone doesn't stop them soon we will have to start up a new thread about who will win the castle war.
