Weekly Set Review: Wolfpack Renegades

Discussion of official LEGO Castle Theme sets and products

You mean that the S@H existed back in 95... Man I did'nt eaven have a computer then!

Any way, I like this set, it's not that big but it sure is sufficient. It is to be used for hiding the things this wolfmen steal and get away with it. It's a masterpiece in Lego design, that's all I have to say :D

Got it on some kind of special offer on the ferry over to Denmark in 92, same summer I visited Legoland in Billund. Those were the days!
I'm back, and so is Castle!

I have this set and it is my only wolfpack set apart from a DM set that had one wolfpack guy. It's perfect to use to rob a village or a castle. 10/10 :D

I did not have online capability back then either.... or until 1998 for that matter. However, Lego Shop at Home always sent catalog's to my mailbox. I believe I got four a year or so. Those catalog's provided me with a healthy outlet to unload some grass cutting money when I couldn't find the sets I wanted at the store.

I haven't gotten a Shop at Home catalog for years now. I wonder if they still send them out?

Yes, shop at home has existed for many years. It was just not on the internet then. People still order with the catalogs which you can request. Or if you buy online from Shop at Home they will start sending you the catalogs to tempt you :wink:

As a kid we would always look at the shop at home catalogs and occasionally be able to save up to buy something out of it.

Btw, Wolfpack Renegades is a superb set with great playability, useful plates and hinge bricks, and nice figs.

One of the best sets TLG produced for me.

Has a nice cart that would go well in any town setting, lots of weapons and two wolfpack henchmen. It's a pity they didn't flesh out this faction a bit more.

The two wolfpack sets and the kings mountain fortress were the only ones I kept during my dark ages and reassembling them sparked the lego fire again. For that alone this set gets 9.5/10

I love this set, I got bought it of a friend many years ago, built up my little Wolfpack group a bit more!

Its a standard wagon though, with the addition of a chest (a well hidden one, too) but its a very nice construction and looks nice (blue goes well with the faction for some reason).

Its great. :)

Hmm...missed this review the first time around. Anyway, great set! Love the hidden treasure option and all the weapons. Easily the best wolfpack set and ironically, I have never gotten it. I could probably build it, but I have never picked it up. My sister had this when we were kids and I wanted it so bad. First crossbows I ever saw in real life, oh I was so jealous! :)

It is one of my favorite sets that I missed out on. Which is a long list, and I think it is #3 on it.


I give it a 9/10.

Old but not dead. We are doing re-reviews now since we have gone through most of the older sets. I also seem to remember Ben saying that we were doing this because lots of the new members never got to review some of these.

This set was on my wish list for years... until my dark age came. It's full of equipment, and the two 'classic capes' are always useful! Good use of pieces and nice design. Excellent little set. I'll rate it 9/10, too.
