Star Wars or Castle?
Posted 20 October 2008 - 06:17 PM
Anyways, lately I bought my first few of the new castle sets 5x Knight, 1x Good Wizard and 2x Mine Defender)
Unfortunately with my mind being easily changed, I watched Star Wars again and I kind of would like to build some Star Wars mocs. I don't have enough pieces to do both and would like to display them for a while. Minifigure wise I have an ok amount of figures, and I was planning to get both some castle and Star Wars after Christmas. So my problem is, what do I choose, Epic Fantasy castle or Sci-Fi brilliance Star Wars?
Thanks everyone if you can help
Sorry if this topics in the wrong area...

I think Castle is much better for MOCing. Practically everything from Star Wars of reasonable MOCing size has been done in an official set. I guess you could try to do a Star Wars styled MOC, but that doesn't appeal to me. Castle seems to have more possibility for creativity.

I don't think 'brilliance' is a word I would describe anything Star Wars (non-Lego) put out in the past decade.
I myself prefer Castle over Star Wars, but I did buy a few of the new Storm Trooper Battle Packs. I prefer the Yellows to the Fleshies.

We really can't just choose for you, everyone is different, it would be like asking: "What is better: bananas or apples?"
If we all say castle, and you follow us, you might end up feeling sorry you didn't choose Star Wars (or the other way around). If you can't choose, go with Captain Zuloo's "option".

I'd say castle. Star Wars is neat, but seriously limits your creativity. You need to go by what other people have written to much. To me it feels cramped.
With castle you can have all sorts of things, like orcs in fleets of blimps battling each other with ice-cream catapults! Yum.
P.S. If you spell each other eachother the second option is psychotherapy in spell check. Weird!
