I don't know if you have already this set IRL :

Posted Image

I found this in my local toy shop in Paris. It was the only set of the range.
The mage has georgous dark green clothes : legs and hat are nicely printed, but the torso is plain.
The head is the same as the Governor in the Pirate line.

The tile is printed with a parchment pattern where it is written : "You are far more powerful than you would ever imagine..."
Moreover, there is a new jumper 2x2 and a little Dark Green Dragon.

To conclude : I really like this impulse, it's a great addition to the previous Lego mage.

If you always do what you always did, you always get what you always got.

I'm extremely jealous, I can't wait for the Kingdoms sets to be released, and hopefully the impulses will be also releases in America (More specifically Canada!).
Thanks for the news!

*Screams like a little girl* Great mini review! I was hoping that the wizard had voldemort's new dark green robe torso, but alass, it was not to be. That impulse is as epic as the troll one was a while back, and I love the printed scroll piece, even though the prophesy sounds more like the paper from a fortune cookie. :hmpf_bad:
The inclusion of the dragon (which only apears in the second largest set barring this) makes up for those two dissapointments. Also, Dark tan 2/2 1 stud! (I barely have any dark tan so this excites me) Did I mention the Wizard himself? Je n'ai que un mod pour ca; EPIC. (I have but one word for it) This will be a must buy for me... when it shows up dans les 'Etats Unis! :tongue:
Edit; though I love the pic, I took it out of my post as to not clutter the thread.

I hope you don't mind me splitting this away from the main discussion topic. I thought this was important enough to warrant its own thread.

Thanks for the picture and little review, this is a great little set. I like the printed tile, but am not sure about the English text. I might have preferred it if it was ineligible like previous scroll tiles.

Great review! I can't wait for this set to arrive in the US! I love how it has the mini-dragon peice, a black beard, and a printed script tile!

Thanks for the pic!

Too bad the minifig doesn't have a torso print, or a face that matches his beard. Everything else is great, though.

this is gonna be an awesome impulse set. i notice the hat has been changed, so noe we have proof the magician is part of the dragons faction (though that wa spretts obvious from the colors since the biginning, anyway). can't wait to get my fingers on all these new sets, i've gotta rob a bank soon cause i even still don't have all sets from the fantasy era!

I also preferred the old practice of making scroll text illegible, but at least the fact that it's in English means this wizard impulse will probably be available in the US.  I wasn't able to buy nearly as many of the last ones as I wanted, and this one looks even better.

Sweet Sassy Molassy!   :thumbup:   That printed hat and tile look awesome!  I really like the leg printing as well.  Black beard and all this is a great little set.

Is it just me or is the buckle print on the hat really off?  Hope they aren't getting sloppy with the prints. :sceptic:

Love the Dragon's color scheme, and the wizard is no exception.  Would have liked to have seen a printed torso like other have mentioned, however.  I'll probably end up swapping the torso and head out for something that matches a little bit more.

It's an ok se-did you say blank Dark Green torso?! I love the dragon and the tile, but I don't understand what it means. :tongue: Now the Black beard will probably be easier to get. :classic:
