Weekly Set Review: Troll Battle Wheel
Ben E. 27 II 11

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 7041 Troll Battle Wheel.

This wheel driven siege machine was released for the Trolls in 2008.

Three crown soldiers defend their spike covered battlement with a catapult. Two trolls propel the giant siege wheels. A third troll controls the siege tower and its' firing projectile.

Various accessories such as a banner, pikes, troll sword, crossbow, shields, sword, and flags are included.

Bruce 25 II 11

A few months ago we took note of the collaborative Lowlug layout on display at Fanwelt 2010, featuring several CC members. That tall structure in the middle is by DNL. Since that time he's modified it and uploaded many photos of the medieval city Prhean. All of DNL's impressive MOCs can be found on Flickr and Brickshelf.

Medieval Castle Today
Bruce 19 II 11

Matija Grguric is an architecture student from Zagreb, Croatia. He's created a number of impressive castle MOCs, including former CCC entries, and his most recent MOC was originally going to be along these lines. He changed his mind, though, and brought it forward several centuries to become a modern day tourist destination as a Medieval Castle Today. Visitors to LEGO World this weekend will be able to see Matija's creation as part of the Croatian contingent's city layout.

Matija is one of the founders and the current president of the Croatian LUG Kockice and is a former LEGO Ambassador. His MOCs can be found on Flickr and MOCpages.
