|Weekly Set Re-Review: Crusader's Cart
Ben E. 5 IX 10
Join the weekly Classic Castle set review discussion.
Please post your opinions on the set play ability, piece selection, design, etc.
Which sets stand up to our catapult of critique and which ones crumble in shame!
This week’s set is 1877 Crusader’s Cart.
Crusader’s Cart, part of Variety Pack 1675, was released in 1990.
This was the last Forestman cart to appear in LEGO castle.
The cart carries hay and has a secret compartment to hide a forestman.
Two forestmen, a saddle, a pitchfork, a whip, and various weapons are included.
Set 1680 is identical to 1877 except it has an additional forestman with a red collar.
