Some basic information:
Set: 6034 Black Monarch's Ghost
Subtheme: Black Knights
This is my second review here, and I noticed that this cool set has never been reviewed on EB, so I hope you like it.
First, to show the entire set and the box:
As you can see, it's a small set, but it contains some cool stuff.
Here are the instructions:
There isn't much to build here, the structure is small, but still very nice in my opinion.
Now, the back of the box:
This is something I really miss nowadays, LEGO used to show 2-3 alternative builds on the back of every box, even on such small sets like this one. They have stopped doing that and it's a real shame.
Next, a photo of the set: the small structure, the ghost, the horse and the knight.
I love the doors, I think it's the only pair of such doors in my collection. Their colour is great, dark brown.
Here is the mighty knight in his armour:
This armor is so stylish, such a great design! And the helmet cool, it gives the minifig a menacing look! It really looks like the real thing, I'm sure you know, but just to demonstrate, here a photo I took recently in a museum in Vienna full of Medievil armor suits and weapons:
Now, the back of the little tower, where the ghost haunts:
This set can be attached to other Castle sets in the usual manner shown here:
Playability: 8/10 - You can have some interaction between the ghost and the knight, but this set is best used together with other Castle sets, where it gives you plenty of options.
Design: 10/10 - Simple, straightforward design of the structure, with cool colours - exactly as I like it.
Value: 10/10 - A small set, but it comes with a horse, a knight with a great armor, an owl (not shown here) and a ghost. The ghost is made of phosphorus and glows green in the dark! As a child, I loved this (well, I still do). This little set had a special place in my kingdom, I placed it between the 6073 and the 6066 as a kind of neutral territory between the opposing sides.
And to conclude, here the evil ghost is attacking the unsuspecting knight:
I hope you've enjoyed my review, feel free to post feedback and your thoughts on the set itself.
