Wow! That's a lot of helmets! I like the diversity of the weapons and armor. The ninja sword and hood, The shield and helmet of the Bulls, wizard hat and beard, etc. If I was really into castle when this was out I would buy several.

Give it 9.5/10 (no euro armor)

I really wish that Lego would release another one of these type of sets. I never got this or any of the accessory packs, and they are awesome.

A lot of nice equipment. Not sure what you're going to do with a green ninja hat and no green ninja to go with it...

I wanted this set ever since I saw it in the catalouge. I got it for Christmas that year from my older brother or brothers.

I got my first Euro visor with this set. (one of the reason's I really wanted it. I was really jealous of my brothers, who had more than one each.)

Parts: 9
Playability: 4 With that skeleton, the possibilities are endless!
How much I like it: 9

Gosh I really regret not having gotten any of these. This has a really nice selection of items, I would rank this just below the accessory pack in the 90s where there was euro armor and white dragon plumes.

I remember seeing this in the Lego catalogue from a while back. About a year later I tryed ordering this set but they did not carry it anymore. i really wish I got a couple of these.

Favorite Part: The pointed visor and helmet. I have always loved this piece even though I have few.

Score: 8/10 This is a great accessory set (I know because my friend got one). I don't give it a perfect score because for as good as it is it would be better if it included some minifigures.

Shoulda gotten a bunch of these, but it was during my "dim ages" and I was saving for other things (darn college)...

But basically, yeah, that about says it.

I see some things in that pack that would have made me go out and buy many, many, many bags... the peasant hat alone is drool-inducing, as is the samurai helmet.

The crown (ANOTHER crown) and wizard hat... not so exciting, but worth the price.

I almost half-expect to see these pop-up again in a year or two, the way LEGO seems to be waking up and bringing better and better offerings to the table. They seem to be getting very good at understanding what we want these days - something that makes me (but not my wallet) very happy.

This was a great pack. I should have bought more than I did (only one!). Excellent selection of pieces and my first green ninja wrap! Made a pretty cool ninja with that green oriental torso from the Dragon Fortress too...

well all those packs were great so give us some more!!!
I was never a big fan of ninjas so I think they could have been replaced with other helms and swords.

I'm short of helmets and shields, so I'd definately pick up a couple of these if I could get them now. Got no use for the crown or the ninja piece tho.

What I liked most about this accessory pack is that I was able to use about 5 pieces that I really needed and still get back the price of the set, selling the other stuff... :)

These type of sets were fantastic, although I'd have prefered more generic weapons and headgear instead of some of the speciality pieces (crown, wizard's hat, ninja gear). But of course any such bag would be most welcome nowadays...

Nice assortment of bits, plenty of helmets that's for sure. The inclusion of a skellie is great.
