    10305 mod - Wolfpack Castle

    I kinda feel that castle is too fancy for the Wolfpack...
  2. Nope, mine haven't even been sent yet. Really frustrating to me that LEGO can't even handle shipping in stock goods in a timely fashion. I can live with bricks & pieces usually taking 6 weeks to ship, as that's a special fan service they aren't really making a lot of money on - but selling sets is their core business. They should employ more workers for packaging.

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    I just built this set, it's a fun build. Full of nostalgia, and it's great to see both new Forestman torsos and - especially - new versions of the classic shield. Absolutely loved it.

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    It seems to be sold out in Europe now. I sure hope they still have one for my order, which they have yet to process...
  5. Oh that's a shame. Perhaps you can still cancel and re-order? It was heavily rumored to be released today, so I took my chances and believed the rumor.
  6. Waiting paid off for me, as I managed to get both the Castle, the Forest Hideout GWP and the Pirate pack add-on.
  7. A very nice improvement on what I see as one of the best sets from the KKII theme.
  8. Thanks for that image, I hadn't even realized that there were two different Lion Knight torsos in the set.
  9. Well how often have we gotten only a King? I don't recall anyone making much of a fuss over that, any of the times it happened. Would it have been nice to have a King, a Prince, a Princess, a jester, more civilians, more animals, etc...? Yes, for sure. Do we *need* them? Not really. As previously mentioned, there are plenty of valid reasons why a King is not necessarily present in the set - also when looking through historical lenses.
  10. Sure, people have a right to their opinion. Having opinions on the design, coloring, size, price, amount of peasant minifigures, number of horses, chosen heraldy and stuff like that is all quite valid. Having an opinion on whether a children's construction toy is historically accurate enough when portraying women in the military, however, is quite silly.
  11. Really? Oh, that's great. I did not see one in any of the pictures.
  12. As you say yourself, there can be many reasons why a king is not present in the set. Is he away? Is he dead? Has the queen never married? Either way, I'd assume most of us can create a nice and fine king from existing minifigure parts. I, too, am puzzled about the barebone wizard torso. For a set of this size, magnitude and price, they could have included a printed torso. Personally however, I already have several good wizard torsos I can use (a few of them even blue) - so I'm not overly bothered. The things that bothers me the most (and these are minor) are: 1. No Forestmen shield included. I have the GWP, but it seemed like such a no-brainer to include at least one here as well (I actually assumed they were created for this set, and just re-purposed for the GWP). 2. The sheep should have been a goat. Yes, this would have been the perfect time to do a new goat mold.
