It's around 100 bucks, but it's in the best condition possible.
Well...there is one on Ebay right now, from an adult collector, it says mint...with a current bid price of 15.50.
You know, I hate to admit it, but I am coming around to almost liking the Fright Knights. At least as MOCfodder. They have some very useful torsos, heads, pieces, etc. I have even found a use for Willa's head.
Now about this set. I never got it, but I think it was partially there in one of my big Ebay lots because I have all of the unusual pieces that come with this. Looking at the pics, it is not a horrible design. It is ugly but at least it has a wall all the way around. It was the worst castle to date but compared to what came after, its not too bad.
However, there is one thing that has always confused me about this set. It is this piece http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/30100
. It only comes in this set and could be rather useful at times. Now it has the same footprint as two of these http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/2345
, so the only unique thing is the window, right? Well, in this set, they cover up the window! So why did they even bother molding a new piece if they were just going to cover it up!?
That has always seemed weird to me...any thoughts on this?
PS. This set comes with my favorite barding. It is the only barding that has no heraldric symbols at all...you can use it for anyone!
