yeah, but I'm afraid at what the set will cost.  I may need a mortgage
just to afford the set...

I got this list from Bricksworld (Lego exclusive in Singapore):

8873  Fire Ball Catapult         S$14.90
8874  Battle Wagon              S$39.90
8875  King's Siege Tower      S$39.90
8876  Scorpion Prison Cave   S$39.90
8877  Vladek's Dark Fortress S$199.90

For your information, 1 USD is approximately S$2.

I like KK1 cos the colour scheme is more striking. However, I'll buy all of them when it's released. I've to save money starting from now. Hahaha.

I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't find 8799 and 8800 at here. Perhaps it was not released in Asia or what...... I really don't know. A bit frustrated.

Thanks for the info! :)

I bought my very first Knights Kingdom set yesterday (Vladek Encounter) and I have to say that I like it more than I thought.... The figs and color schemes are still silly, but the accessoiries could be useful for some fantasy style knight things... Nothing in there for any realistic MOCs, but fantasy is possible....

I find some of the KK2 sets also good part-packs, when they're for sale.

For example, the Border Ambush is a great partspack. Many plates, many bricks. Also many new lightgray bricks. And a Shadowknight! :-)

Looks better than last year. Still I think that KK is too fantastic. It needs a little more realism as in the good ol' castle days. The castle is big and bulky. But it's getting better and better. Maybe in 2010 Lego will be able to produce a castle theme as strong as when the Black Falcons, the Crusaders and the Dragonlords ruled the realm.

i personally would like to LEGO do some more fantasy type sets with the castle theme with dwarfs, elfs, orcs, etc. Also, they need to put dragons back into the sets. Not the dragon like in the Vikings set but the good ol dragon.

They do need to put minifig-scale monsters/other races in Castle themes.  I disagree on the dragons though.  The old dragons are nostalgic, but I'd prefer a larger dragon.  NOT something like the Vikings dragons, but something of similar shape/size with waaaaaaay less large pieces.  Make the wings hinged at the joints, so that they can curl, for one.

Well I do like the dragons ! But they could be imporoved a lot with a simple thing : make the legs move !!!

They could also improve the horses (waiting for CC fans to scream).  I mean look at them, those poor things can only move their heads ! how cruel !!!

I too like the old horses.  I think jointed horses would look really odd.

they would look odd, the old dragon would have been better jointed, though. I always wanted lego to mace a lego zoo. My friend even painted a white horse striped for a zebra! anyways, back on topic...
