    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm not sure why some people seem to think that there are fewer details in this set than usual. The interiors look just as decorated as any other WV set, maybe even more so. I'm pleasantly surprised by the building on the left being a music store, I don't think we've gotten one of those before, period!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    This looks good! It's different from what we usually get, but no town is going to have the exact same architecture. It's definitely pricey for two small buildings and a vehicle, but I prefer it staying at $100 then being a larger set and losing its "quaintness." Hoping the building on the left is a bookstore, the one on the right seems to be a toy shop or emporium of some kind. The trolley is a highlight, nice to get a unique vehicle after all of the cars we have gotten over the years. I'm glad that Lego hasn't fundamentally changed the Winter Village line like it has many of its products recently.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think that a village inn would be a slam dunk, and I'm actually surprised that one hasn't been made yet.
  4. ^ And the new barding piece fits on the old horses, but not the helmet.
  5. We somehow made it through nearly a decade without a single Castle set. I'm sure we'll find something to talk about!
  6. It's pretty eye opening that the majority of people who have voted so far believe that it's been 30 years since we last had a great castle. As I remember it, the 2010 King's Castle was universally loved, not only for how it looked, but its innovative modular system and the fact that it wasn't an open-backed layout like many of its predecessors. If anything, I'd like to hear the rationale for why that one is not a great set.
  7. I maintain that the Fright Knights have the most potential as an "updated" faction. Imagine switching out sets like Witch's Windship in favor of gothic-style architecture and some vampiric elements...

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    I feel like they could have pulled off an Ewok village-style set that would serve as their home base. The River Fortress is pint-sized for a flagship set, even in the 90's.

    [MOC] South From Gettysburg

    That withered evergreen in the back is nicely done. Neat SNOT usage as well!
  10. I hate to be the killjoy but it's likely that Wooden Duck is referencing the GWP rather than a set we don't know about. The article was published on May 14, around the same time we found out about it, and the original hideout itself is in the picture they're calling a "clue."
  11. That's nearly a reasonable size in comparison, which just goes to show how huge the blacksmith is. I think the MMV buildings would look good next to the castle.
  12. There's an interview with the designers out now for those who haven't read it: https://brickset.com/article/78892/interview-with-milan-madge-designer-of-10305-lion-knights-castle A couple of interesting takeaways: - They considered a giant Forestman hideout instead of a castle because of how well the faction did in the poll - They spent a lot of time making the structure as realistic to defend as possible, without any weak spots for attackers that smaller-budget sets and even previous flagship castles have. That's something that stuck out to me after I saw it closed up for the first time. - We almost got a new knights' helmet, but they went with the new arch piece instead - The lead designer was inspired by Kingdoms!

    Future Castle Sets?

    I don't think it's too much to ask for, at the very least, some small follow-up sets that don't even necessarily have new prints or molds. The most common complaint I've seen about this castle is how expensive it is. Lego rolling out a small cart or catapult with a minifigure or two next year would address that. It could even be a creator 3-in-1 like this was for space fans: https://brickset.com/sets/31111-1/Cyber-Drone , but with a Crusader with a chain mail torso, and a build that could be a cart, trebuchet or palisade.
  14. Don't have much to add that others haven't already set, but this thing looks incredible. Bravo, Lego. With the four sets released in the last year, we've got a proper revival of Castle, complete with two well-stocked factions, a modular-level blacksmith and even something for the Forestmen. If they keep this up I'll be out of things to complain about, so speed the day. This set is bringing everyone out of retirement, huh Welcome back!

    Even better! Hope that's the case. Do you remember where you saw that?
