Yep, there's plenty about this set that I'm finding on here now. I guess I should have looked around a bit more on here before posting this thread. My bad. I guess I was just excited to be getting a new set and wanted to talk about it. Anyway, it's not the best set ever, but I thought it was a good deal for $35.
It was a STEAL for $35 as this is a $50 set. On top of that, it's got a TON of things going for it, IMO. I got this set for my Birthday 3 years ago and sat on it for a while, waiting for the perfect time to open (which I do for all sets now
). It took me all evening to build b/c I mixed the bags together b/f building (FYI: what's the deal with "numbering" the LEGO baggies in the box?!? It totally relieves the process of searching, which is a key figure of enjoyment and time orientation
Anyway, for a mid-sized set there's plenty of action: Invaders, Knights, and most importantly, the Blacksmith! Here he has a sweet shop for building great weapons. One of my favorite accessories is his fiery furnace. Also, there is the hangman's prison w/rat - COOL. And certainly not the least interesting is the fourth story tower, atop which exists this fantastic crystal ball b/w some great animal skull pieces...a solid set. I'd recommend it to any and all as a great addition.
