definitely best of KK2&3 so far and i actually like this one:
1) nice part selection - tan, dark red, old castle walls (only black though
), slopes with rock pattern, stairs, 'used armor' etc...
2) piece count, resp. price per piece - 967 pcs, you can get new one on ebay.de for 60 EUR (77USD) -> that gives you 0.062 EUR (0.079USD)/per piece which is very decent for a new set
3) looks actually like a real castle, no raised baseplate, good old hinge system (although castle is missing the back part - easy fix with some black bricks and walls
4) size - this thing looks really majestic, very spacey inside
5) vladek's knights are cool
- black not grey (although maybe better black than bley)
- rainbow knights
- bionicle parts (can always throw them to bin)
Overall great set for me (given the current selection) With some redesign and better figs, it could stand next to the 80's castles without getting ashamed.
P.S.> still prefer the good old 80's but this one really works for me
