My son has some 2-3 of them, mostly as gifts and he thinks the set is really good as it comes with lots of men and a horse which is something really lacking in castle/kingdom sets the last few years.
I'm also inclined to think of this as a 'mere' waggon, rather than a prison
waggon, and as a mere waggon, it's not bad. At the very least, it's a one-horse waggon that's actually not massively oversized, like King's Battle Chariot was. As mentioned already, it is an excellent army-builder, coming with two generic soldiers, as well as a generic knight--with that lovely new helm. That it comes with a shield for each faction is nice (the next set down does not), but it's a bit of a disappointment that the Lion soldier--the prisoner--does not.
Design: 8.5/10 (if you think of it as a 'mere' cart)
Overall Score: 8.3/10 (B+
