Set data

6013: Samurai swordsman

Year: 1998

Subtheme: Ninja

Pieces: 13 + 1 extra (Helmet Samurai Horn)

Price: Euro 4 circa, MISB, including S/H, on eBay

Building time: less than 5 minutes.

More info: Bricklset - Peeron.

I stopped buying Lego in 1986; i started again in 2007. That makes a lot of dark years! And a lot of missed subthemes. I had another Ninja set, but I thought I wouldn't skip this one.

My first thought was: No instructions? No problem!

Then I guessed the flag was in the instructions sheet. But I found no instructions on the internet either.

So the point is: I bought a MISB set and one piece was missing. And not a 1x2 plate, but something more rare and expensive. Damn.

The set itself is good, simple, cheap. As usual, a 1x2 plate and a 1x2 brick will take place if the horse doesn't have the saddle. Good colour choice (black and blue ALWAYS work great together); great torso and head pieces too.

I don't think I would have bought the larger sets, but the small Ninja products were great. (search the forums for other member's review, or check the index).

Looks like a standard in my reviews, but I also rate this one 4/5.

This is a very nice Ninja set, which featured a samurai. A great army building set, which include a full Samurai outfit plus a horse. I can't find any flaws on this set. I will love to buy multiple sets of these without a blink of my eyes. I am a Ninja lover as well. :wink:

The best part of this set (assuming you have a few samurai and aren't an army builder) is the cool mini poster/brochure. I wish they still included those...

God Bless,

Norro, I agreed with you. The mini poster or brochure are fanastic and is great for pin up. For exampe, in the 6083 Samurai Stronghold, it included this mini poster as well which I had included in the review.

Thanks for the review.

I have this set myself and it's a great addition to the Ninja theme.

The only thing that annoys me is the banner.

I can't stand the plastic used..I'd much rather have canvas banners.

Ninja sets are always great, it is the set I want back, even more than pirates possibly? :thumbup:

That's a very nice review, The Cobra! :thumbup:

I voted for Outstanding:

This set includes everything you need for a good ninja knight. Plus an included horse it's a great opportunity for ninjy army building (I only own one until now - but surely I'll buy some more in the future)!
