I actually don't mind skeleton surprise. Very much like Black Monarch's Ghost
, this set was simply a way for kids to get a skeleton without shelling out a small fortune for 6090, or paying $30 for 6078. At the time, the skeleton was something unique. The design isn't anything special, but it does come with a number of useful parts.
For me, this set is probably the best of the Royal Knights line. Still, I would have preferred a set that was compatable with the modular format of the 1980s.
