If I am to say one single negative thing about the set, it would be the lack of truly unique minifigures. But that's a minor complaint, this set is amazing overall. A true beauty to behold.
I may have to get Kingdoms Joust and see what I can do with the two of them together, now. But next up will be building the MVR, which I've also had for just over a year now.

In the present moment, I'll settle for gazing longingly at the box.
Perhaps the MVR will provide you with some slightly more 'unique' peasant minifigures. Honestly, the minifigures have changed so much even since 2009 - it can be a bit glaring at times to see them side by side. I've often thought the MMV characters seem a bit outdated now compared to their post-2011 counterparts.

Given how long MMV has been on the shelves, I wouldn't assume the Joust set to go away just yet... I wasn't even planning on getting it at first, as I found it underwhelming compared to MMV, but I have since come to the conclusion that it's still good value for money and has a few interesting figs.
Yeah the reason I hadn't built it untill now is the same: lack of space to build and store. I have other unopened Castle (2007) and Kingdoms sets that awaits being added to my landscape as well.
I did that a lot as well during the past year, it gives quite a kick looking at that beautiful box art and knowing that some special day, you're in for a real treat when opening it!
Yeah the MVR has good figs and interesting animals that will supplement MMV really well, I think. I'm not sure I agree with your assesment about the figures though, I think thsoe from Castle (2007) blends perfectly in with Kingdoms (and vice versa). It starts getting edgy if you go further back than that, though.
