I would really love to see more of those rohan helmets, I could really use lots of those. The ones on the right in AK's post are amazing, I love those as well. The bottom ones are fantastic for enemies! I agree with AK, these are definitely fantastic helmets to make more of.

Also, I would love to see more foliage in the cheaper castle sets, as I tend to get those, and not the expensive ones. Especially 3x5 leaves, and multi colored ones.

Ok so adding to mine i have to fourth on the leaves. More leaves in cheaper sets, and more fall colors! I hate the only official orange leaves seem to be in the elrond council set, an we only get like 4.... come on give me a good fall tree set! Also a set with more rock work!

I would give anything to see those bullet helms return. They are easily my favorite castle helm.

Foliage, as you all have mentioned are perfect.
Also, I love the new factions, now I want to see their peasants and villagers.

And I've been complaining about the horses for a while too. The new ones are great, but we need light brown, tan, speckled, gray, light gray, we need them all!

If they were to do battle packs, I wish they would do them like the Star Wars. Four figs, a little catapult/siege machine/etc. I know forest ambush has this, but I want faction specific battle packs. I know I would buy quite a few of them.

New helmets, as some have pointed out, would be great too, but if you think about it, we really we have a pretty good selection when it comes to those, particularly if you count Hobbit/LOTR offerings.

Here are just a few examples of helmets that have recently been/are currently available, other than the brimmed and neck-guard ones that are most common.

Yes, I agree. I need a good way to get those rohan helmets for my army,although I doubt lego will do it. Also, I agree with the leaves thing. I can always use for foliage.

You basically just spoke my mind. My thoughts exactly.

I'd like to see sets that aren't so similar to the ones release in the last line. And better heraldry... And more basic bricks...

Lets have a tan castle!

Lets have a tan castle!


Here here!!! (says the Queen of Tan) But then...reality? Castle sets are always more disappointing and I would prefer to just build my own tan castle. BUT...having said that, any new tan parts that can enhance my castles are always welcome. SO...please make more tan fancy arches. AND...an inverted cheese slope...in tan.

I have cleaned up this thread. PLEASE stop double and triple posting. This is getting VERY annoying.

Inverted cheese would be ace in any color really. If Lego ever did make those among, other fancy arches, I can see them flying out the window because of the demand. As for different colored leaves, Lego might be testing the water to see if there is a major demand for any new variety. Hopefully they'll realize we'd like more, a lot more!

What I would like to see is two things, one sets with just bad guys and a set with just good guys. With this new wave there is no way to get more dragons than lions and it sucks. Second I would really like to see a dock with a boat/ship that would be awesome.

Yes, I agree. Something like the Star Wars battle packs ($11-13), with just a set of good and a set of bad. I second that for a boat/ship, they haven't done that in a while.

Maybe even a battle pack of villagers, and not just soldiers.

I second (third? Maybe more?) those comments about the Rohan helmets. They go great with all sorts of castle characters.

I do like the current castle sets and factions; still, after Kingdoms Joust, I was somewhat expecting and hoping for more falcon knights. Perhaps some day.

A villagers pack sounds a bit too good to be true, but you know, us Star Wars fans never thought we'd get utapau and Kashyyyk packs, so who knows? Lego has been pleasantly surprising us lately.

Sounds like the Mill Village Raid! http://brickset.com/detail/?set=7189-1

I seemed like they teased us with a lot of new animals but then they haven't really used them anywhere else! (The tan chicken was also in the Blacksmith Attack and a non-printed pig in 2 City sets).

Thoe old style horse still feels like more of a war horse/work horse to me, with the newer horse more of a pony/light cavalry type. I like the extra poseability, but it doesn't look quite right pulling a cart to me.

I doubt we would ever see an exclusively civilian/peasant castle set, but would love to see a couple more civilians in a set that involved being robbed or attacked or something.

I also really liked the small 'impulse' sets (Crown wizard, Kingdoms Jester, Kingdoms Dragon Wizard) and would love to see a couple of these for the new Castle range. A few suggestions would be a charming Lion prince, a female sorceror/evil Queen, Dragon or Lion 'Hero' knights.

An impulse set would be great. I think we need a knight with battle equipment like the little ones in the past. Maybe a soldier with a weapon cart/stall? Something small, but oh so desirable.
