This set is :shock: :shock: :shock: wow!

I want like five. Does anyone know if this will come to the Americas? Not that it matters all that much as I can get one shipped to me but still. Wow! :shock: :D

Excellent find!

Finally Morcian soldiers! Perhaps not the prettiest, but theyre nice to have! A large load of Shadow Knights and a creepy undead queen! Nice! Cheap price, and all army builders WILL go wild on this, if theyre into KK2! :D

Wowie! What a cool idea.

In Germany this lists at 45 Euros, which xe.com says is ~$55 US, for 24 figs with accessories plus a light blay baseplate plus a bunch of light bley and black plates. So it's just over $2 per fig if you consider this as a pure army builder. I'm not 100% thrilled about the blue soldiers, but they would be an interesting addition. There are cheaper ways to build an army, but this is an immediate way to get two good-sized armies.

Chess is cool, too.

Can anyone make out what is on the baby blue pawn's torso?

I'm not too thrilled about the baby blue color in general, so I'm not sure I would want tons of figs in that color.... Anyone want to split this with me? I'll take the black figs. :)

I just talked to Jake about getting this set in the US, and he says it will probably be available at S@H.

However, before you get too excited, James Stacey pointed an idea out to me, which I then asked Jake about.

Jake believes that the figs in this chess set are glued together.

Much like the keychain figs or the picture frames.

He's not 100% sure, but that's the word he remembers hearing about them.

That makes sense, anything that looks like it is essentially a minifig pack, turns out to have problems... :roll:

Hello!


If those figs are not glued together it would be a set that's worth buying.

That probably means the price in the US will be $45 :-)

:evil: Argh!!!!! :evil:

Is this available now in Europe? Is it showing up in LEGO stores there? Any word about this set on 1000steine, Jojo?

--Just a thought. Are the figs in the "Save the Kingdom" board game glued? It may not be relevant because it seems that building the figures is part of the game play.

Glued together?!! Seriously, could anything be worse! After years of waiting, we finally get an interesting parts pack (the powder blue helmets look a bit off though) only to find out that the whole thing may be glued together! If this is indeed glued together, it certainly isn't worth much.


If this isn't glued together, I'll probably pick a few up. If it is, I'll be letting this one go!

I don't think that they're glued together, the TLC website shows pics of the guys with their arms in different positions, so I don't think they're glued together.

I might buy this one(if it's officialy that the figs aren't glued)

wow... a cool evil queen, a respectable vladek, and finally morcian soldiers (i don't mind the baby blue from behind... but we'll have to see what silly sort of design they may have in front).

I'll be 2 or 3 if they are not glued... maybe even one if they are!
