Wow, Ben, what a great experience that must have been. Thank you for the article (very well written, by the way). It's a great to have a peek into the process it takes to create a theme.
Quickblade22 wrote:Excellent article Ben. I'm glad that they chose someone with very good idea of what fans want for this process. It's good to see that the company cares enough to get fan input like this. I think you made the most of your time there, which is probably the most important thing. Great job.

That first knight (the one beside the wizard)...that's the one from the Skeleton Tower, right? Is that knight going to find its way to other sets? The visor knight seems to be pretty heavily used, which is fine, but I'd like to see a lot more of that one (especially in "good guy" oriented sets).

Great work guys!
I do not know if the grill helmet knight will be in other sets or not. You could purchase grill helmets on bricklink and place them on the Tic-Tac-Toe knights.

I like the extant of mechanical devices and the Great hall.
Ben your castle kitchen is a good example of what separates Lego from its competitors, the ability to create detailed brick built scenes using well designed and detailed blocks, plates and mini figure utensils and why I would always be willing to pay more for them, over other brands;
Yesterday when I first saw the mini figure selection in the latest 7029: Skeleton Ship Attack, I instantly thought I could see the influence of AFOL those crown knights heads give the impression of well seasoned man at arms and the homage to the pirates theme.

Cool stuff, Ben. Very, very cool. Thanks for your work on this, I know how painful it must have been *pic with Ben holding MISB set and HUGE grin flashes through mind* Wink Altruistic? I think not.

Will Classic-Castle benefit from this, in the sense that product images will be released here (say a couple of weeks or a month before release date) to placate the community and build anticipation? I am sure I am not the only one who wants to see the Dwarves Mine 70XX that is supposedly coming out in November (although I was hoping October as my b'day is just over half way through that month).
