Well, I got mine for Easter in '86 plus a kid's MC of "Benjamin Blümchen - Als Ritter". The musiccassette deals with a talking elephant called "Benjamin Blümchen", who has to go through many adventures (by now 96 methinx) with his little human friend Otto. Those cassettes are very successfull here in Germany among kids.
In that special adventure he and Otto went to a tin factory to get some armour and then they travel to the town's castle "Burg Eintracht" in order to relive the adventures they read before in books. They try to rescue a maiden - who is the cashier of the tourist-tour, who was trying to hide in front of an knight-like armoured elephant in her office. In the end everything is resolved and we have a happy end.
Ok, this little story may help, why I like this set so much: On the tape, the story dealt with a maiden and this set gave me the first maiden (6067 was for birthday, later in the year) - and I could re-play the adventures with the elephant (Fabuland
On the other hand I liked the gray legs, because they symboled that the soldier didn't actually belong to a special fraction but had to serve his lady.
The construction of the set with the open canopy was done very well; you could easy reach the interior and sit down a minifig.
And after all, Robin Hood could rob the cart and capture the maiden
