hmm so this is something new then, really like it too. But nothing too new and special about her, and is so like this or does she belong to a set (haven't watched the Link yet)
Edit now I watched the link, hmm okey I like the minifig but I don't really like the set. I like friends sets and the they are made with girls in mind and what they like and also the Duplo pink Disney castles go. But pink walls, hopefuly there won't be any more pink castles!

My thoughts on this princess, she doesn't seem all that new to me. She reminds me of the pirate maiden that existed and Elizabeth Swann from POTC. But her colors are a little weird. I'm not sure about that bright pink especially when the gem on the skirt is red. And she is a bit...too fancied up. It's like a little girl who didn't know that you should wear the beads or the bow, but not both. But either way, she's nice.

Nicely said, that pretty much sum up who this set is designed for, little girls. :D Seems to be a new "Creator" line for young children, pretty good idea, hadn´t seen this before.

But there is some great parts in this set, useful to use in "grownup castle" (not the pink parts :P ). But strange that TLG included black pants in the set and no saddle for the horse, like seen on the backside of the box, looks a bit strange.

They should put white legs and a saddle.

It is the same skirt as the pirate maiden, but it is a new top. I'm glad there is another female to add to the mix.

Looks good to me. I plan to snag a set to get her when I find it.

This is pretty nice. It's too bad it seems to be a one-off and not part of a princess series, though I would understand that LEGO wouldn't want a competing 'girl theme' going against Friends. I agree that the legs should have been white, but it's a nice inclusion nonetheless.

If she doesn't have a crown, she's not a princess. Any 5 year old girl knows that much!

Really a nice set beside maybe the pink parts, the princess minifigure and a new horse. I think I will get one.

Hmmm. Color scheme doesn't match any factions I currently have so.....she may well become the matron of a new faction in my LEGO world. :D Always glad to see more female minifigs in any line, and especially in castle.

The new horse in white would have made this a lot more desirable for me, and would have fitted better with the set colours in my opinion. Other than that, all I see is a new torso and a whole lot of pink :s

Bit I guess its done well in terms of its target market, and maybe we'll see some more castle-themed buckets.

I'll probably pick it up for the horse and minifig but I must say the printing on her is... odd. To me it looks like a odd combo of the 7189 Mill Village Raid minifig and the white one(For life of me I can't remember what set(s) it was on but it's not in any Kingdoms sets. I think the torso was used in a Modular Building also) .

So I bought this set, all happy and excited for it..and then it was a "meh" moment when I realized just how much I paid for it. Sure it is probably in line with other pricing but it really wasn't something I was excited about. Is it worth the price? Not to me. Maybe to someone who wants a lot of horses. It's nice. But meh...I wont' be buying another.
