Name: Mill Village Raid
Release: June 2011
MSRP: 69.99 USD
Contents in the box: 7 bags + 2 green plates
2 Instruction booklets, both of which were bent.
The mini figures and most importantly, the new animals.
Rotate the windmill through the crank located in the back. The fruit basket can be brought down by spinning the "rooster compass" (what's the official name for that?)located on the top of the mill.
The mill opens up. Very reminiscent of the Majisto's Magic Workshop set.
Back of both buildings.
Playability: 9/10 ((3 "bad guys" + 3 villages + animals) on farm = awesome )
Design: 9/10 (Nice set, complements MMV very well)
Price: 6/10 (Fair pricing .)
Overall: 8/10 (A set not just for Castle fans)
And with that I'll leave you with my version of a raid.
Acknowledgments: I would like to thank my friend Nannan Zhang, who generously donated his time and camera editing skills into making this review.
Thanks for reading!

I must say this set is worth it - play features - fantastic - minifigs and animals - AWESOME !
The animal prints are just the bomb !
The mill's mechanics are spot on (I watch Time Team and I'm a little bit of a history nut) !
Oh, this one is on the buy list and I don't care what the wife says !
K.O.B. everyone !

Nevertheless, thanks to Donut for reviewing the set. I'm so jealous.

And "rooster compass" is called weathercock :)
And thanks for the review Donut! I hope there will be more and more sets with peasants.

Sometimes I wished I was born just a couple of decades later because the Lego-sets just keep getting better and I am not in a
position to keep buying them. (Sometimes I sneak one in the last one being the logcabin).
I really love this Windmill set. It looks just great and I am very tempted to get this one.
