If I had to pay for them, I'd rather buy Black Falcons, they can be had New for less than $2.00 a piece on Bricklink right now. That's 4 1/2 Black Falcons for every Vladek encounter, I would definitely rather have the Falcons.
My sentiments exactly. Eventually, when the sets are cheaper, I want probably one each of the new knights, but if I had money to burn, I'd hunt down some Falcons.
I'm afraid that I must disagree.
Within the confines of the official factions, I would much rather have Falcons to the Knights of the Peasant Order of the Jellybeans, but I regret to say that most of my building (and thus purchasing) isn't geared towards the factions these days, but towards my own legendarium. That means that I'll take armour and un-designed shirts over BFs any day. I mean, the BF helms and weapons are better, but all those falcon-crest shirts are useless unstickerized, and I would rather have KK2 faces to give to my baddies than smilies. They just look uglier.
So I will definitely be buying the new provincial castle. And probably the Vladek thinger. True, I don't get a ton of figs, but they are useful, and I've almost completely drained my bricks containers, so restocking those a smudge won't hurt either.
And as for the number of Vladek Encounters entering my room......
