I also think that the VAK is a very cool kit mostly because of the pretty design. But I think there should be like 3-4 more Shadow knights or TLC should bring out an KK2 minifigures set with 3 Shadow knights, King Matti, Rascus , Jayko, Santis. THAT would be a very very neat army builder.
But I agree with you guys. I don't think that the KK2 line is that cool. Just give me the good ol' Black Knights
