    Story-Driven Castle Themes?

    Personally, I'm "anti-story" when it comes to Castle. I started collecting the theme in the late 80s when characters/minifigs may have had different heraldry, but remained nameless and "generic". I preferred this. Because it let me build the stories. But I'm no dope. I appreciate the advantages of branded, or "story-driven" themes/waves. And understand that some folks prefer them. We're all entitled to our preferences. I don't judge others for theirs. That said, if The LEGO Group did go the story route with a new Castle theme, I'd hope they steer in a direction that could potentially serve multiple masters. I'd propose something like a G-rated Game Of Thrones. A story/theme featuring different, feuding factions (or houses); all lightheartedly duking it out for the kingdom's crown. Adult hobbyists would enjoy new shield designs, original prints, updated weapon molds, etc... And kids could sink their teeth into a serialized adventure story brimming with over the top characters and hilarious plot twists that older fans could just as easily ignore in favor of enjoying the sets separately, and on their own merit. This approach would also (hopefully) encourage color schemes that aren't overly bright and boisterous. I guess my point it is, given my druthers as a Castle-loving AHOL, I'd like something with new/revitalized factions that isn't too-Junior. But don't see why a competent LEGO design and creative team couldn't put together an updated theme that embraces the narrative success of Ninjago for kids, but stays neutral enough in tone and set composition to give patient, and long-suffering adult Castle fans something to get excited about again.

    Roof Technique idea

    Roofs are the part of custom building I tend to struggle with the most. So any technique suggestion is a good one in my books. Thanks for sharing!

    [MOC] Dwarven Barber Shop

    I love this! A barber shop isn't what immediately comes to mind when you think "high fantasy", but it makes sense! And this is a beautiful build! Thanks for sharing.
