System Knights Kingdom 2005

I'm not really that impressed. Here's what I think of each of the sets.
8873 - I'm not really sure what it is. Something with a buzz saw. Not really very impressive.
8874 - Doesn't look that great. It's OK but seems a bit messy.
8875 - Looks pretty good. Maybe a bit similar to Vladek's Battering ram, but at least it doesn't have cardboard on it now. I like the rock at the front.
8876 - Looks OK but too empty and boring.
8877 - Probably the best of the bunch. It looks very big.
- Lots of horses
- Triangular shields
- Lots of Shadow Knights (I can see 9) :-D
- Vladek has new armour
They're alright I suppose, I just don't think i'll buy any. Although by looking at ClassicCastle.com lots of people like them.

Buzz Saw: Its the load of a catapult... (Similar catapults on the big castle's walls)
New (?) accessories for horses: A shame that there isn't any additional thing for covering the whole body of the horses, but nice to see a start by the head-covering parts... (Especially in several colors)
8874: Nice parts (gates, horse + headgear, weapons, helmets,...), but nothing special
8876: sweet, the scorpion looks good from what I can see, and I like the hanging cage on the right...
- BURPs: two new brown ones AND the new smaller molds from the ice alpha team series in new brown
- Build on tan plates, no baseplates -> good! (IMO) ;)
- The buzz saw catapults look good ("realistic", at least in comparisson with the catapult from the small set)
- The big sloped pieces (Haven't any.... :'()
- Overall some cool parts like accessories, minifigs, windows, chains, gate doors....
- The big bionicle swords at the entrance.... |-/
Overall: Nice set!!! :)

maybe i should make an MOC Knight Transformation set, to exsplain why the knight suddenly look different, and got smaller shields ;)

Basically.. better figs (I love the smaller shields and the printed armour looks cool), there are more figs! (lots of shadow knights), the set look alot better (8874 reminds me of the old dragon master sets in the 90's), lots of new pieces (its not new really, but the chrome boulder on the battering ram looks great!)
So I am impressed, the only complaint (as Apo said) are those large bionicle swords, the bionicle style mask at the top of castle and the circular flame pieces. They really should be thrown back into the bionicle sets!
I can't wait for these to hit the shelves.. I may buy a few of the sets.. after the world city and 100 clone walker sets along with the rest of the star wars line. I had better start saving last year!! :P

Though I guess some will be happy that Lego has produced some
The only set I'll probably buy is the large Castle. It looks pricey, but
a very good decision to Include chrome armor (even though there
is only 3 sets) and Exclude the large one piece base-plate thingy....
boy, it feels good to post here. I was starting to get worried a great place
to post would be down for the count.
Thanks, Ben M.
