The Box

The box is fairly standard and illustrates the set well.

The Back

The back of the box is just an advertisement. :thumbdown:

The Instructions

The instructions are simplistic, basic, and short.

The Back of the Instructions

The back of the instructions show the other impulse sets, as well as a few others.

The Weapon Rack

This nifty little weapon rack holds the sword, the shield, as well as a different style helmet and armour plate.

The Minifigure

The minifigure is of the standard castle variety, with the basic torso and helmet, and a slight scowl on his face.

Accessories/Weapons

The set comes with a shield, a spear, and a sword.I particularly like the pattern on the shield

Different configurations

With the extra pieces of equipment I mentioned earlier, itis possible to turn your figure into something totally different...

The Entire Set

This picture shows the weapon rack and the knight, ready to ward off skeleton invaders!

Overall

Build: 9/10 The build is simplistic and suitable for all ages.

Design: 7/10 There really isnt much to judge in this category...

playability: 8/10 With another minifig, plenty of exciting battles can be made!

Minifigs: 9/10 With plenty of customisation options, you can turn this one minifig into almost anything.

Price: 10/10 This set is well worth the price tag.

Overall:43/50

Conclusion

I really enjoy these impulse sets. For a casual lego-builder who doesn`t want to invest top dollar in lego, they are perfect, and for the hardcore fan, you could easily buy 5 or 6 of these to boost your army. This is the best impulse set of the first wave and I highly reccomend that you pick this set up soon, before they are all gone
