Review: 30061 Attack Wagon
Posted 18 March 2010 - 01:53 PM
Set Number/Name: 30061 Attack Wagon
Year Released: 2010
Pieces Count: 37 (not sure though, counted them myself)
Price: 9,50 € from Bricklink
Wow, i think this is a premiere! It's the first time i get to review a brand new set that almost nobody has yet! Someone posted a link to a Bricklink seller last week, so of course i couldn't withstand and just bought one straight off. I must say i already love this new theme though it's not even out yet, but now let's go straight to the pictures!
Most likely the most interesting of this set. Gotta love that torso and helmet! The torso also has some nice back printing. I'm not sure if the head is new too, but there are so many heads it's not easy to keep on track.
Overall shots of the wagon itself:
The completed set:
As you can see the set also comes with some good accesoires, like 3 spears, a sword, and a telescope piece with fire.
Not much to say here, a dark green cheese piece and a "viking helmet horn" piece.
I don't really know if something like that really existed in the medieval age, and i also don't know what it would be used for (maybe someone can enlighten me?), but overall this is a really nice little set. It should have been released as a normal impulse set rather than just a promo i think. Hope you enjoyed the review and pictures, can't wait to see what you all think about the set.

This set isn't anything special to me, an average set that has it's pros and cons. I like the new colour for the helmet and the there are some useful parts like the dark green cheese slopes. I don't like that the soldier doesn't get a shield, it would have been a much better army building set if a shield was included. And I was kind of hoping for a new head, nothing wrong with this one but I already have like 5 of them from the Pirate theme.
If there was a poll for this set (hint hint ) I would have voted a 3 out of 5.

I am really excited with the whole Green Dragon faction, and these polybags are quite hard to get too, since these are promotional and exclusive. I do hope I could pick a few soon.

My 30061's have just arrived today. I absolutely love the fig. Beautiful two-sided torso with a real menacing-looking dragon head pattern. I miss a shield, though, and I'm somewhat disappointed that the shortsword is PLG, when there are new "pearl dark gray" (?) weapons in some sets...
I won't keep the wagon itself assembled, but the 4-spiked mace thing is useful for troll, ogre or giant armies.

Wish it came with a dark pearl bley sword and a dragon shield.

Anyways not much to say besides that the minifigure looks great.

I really want it as it is great to build an army or create a large MOC

It's great to have this early pre-view on one of the new castle factions. If my funds permit me I'll be buying some of these upcoming castle sets.

Perhaps, if well-balansed, the carts like this could be pushwd from the hill towars the advancing enemies to break their lines?

Heaps of weapons on a cart that wants to make a point !
The build is simple enough but effective looking as a battlewagon...........now someone asked did were there any around in those times...........can't find any info on Wikipedia.
Keep on bricking !

I like the look of the battle cart. It looks like it's supposed to be some sort of battering ram.

I would say above average too; the set itself is average, nothing special on its own (save for the minifig, which is outstanding! ), but the parts you get are fantastic. You can build great things from this little set...
So 4 out of 5 from me!
