Ten years ago two things came together. There were several people interested in telling LEGO-illustrated castle stories, and many were unhappy with the online options available to them. Also, there was a move to create collaborative displays at AFOL events, and a group of builders got together at BrickFest to hammer out the details of a building standard (what became known as the Classic-Castle City standard). The conversation continued as a series of e-mails, and on September 15, 2003, a new forum was announced, Classic-Castle.com, the source for all your LEGO Castle needs. The years since have included ten Colossal Castle Contests with nine Master Builders (no MB that first year) and numerous other contests. Mascot figs Henry and Harold have criss-crossed the globe, visiting builders in many countries. The Classic-Castle Role Play ran for about five years, and now a new collaborative world, the Lands of Classic-Castle has arisen and has been going strong for almost a year and a half. We've seen the downfall of the Jelly Bean Knights, the rise of the Fantasy Era, followed by Kingdoms and now Castle, with lots of great sets and new figures. We've also seen Vikings, Prince of Persia, and now an oft-requested Tolkien line, not to mention lots of great castle figs in the Collectible lines. The number of MOCs we've built as a group is uncountable. In the ten years we've been here, we've gained 2961 members, started over 22,000 topics and made over a quarter million posts! On behalf of all of the admins and mods, I'd like to thank you, all of the CC members, for making this one of the best forums on the web. It's been a great decade, let's party!
