Collecting vintage misb castle sets

Postby ngsimlim » Sat Oct 07, 2017 9:39 pm

Hi all!

I have been late in the game but have been collecting the US version misb castle sets for a year now.

Would anyone know if 6067 and 6055 comes with the US box print? I could only find them in the samsonite version or otherwise international version.

Greatly appreciate any advice!

Hi Sim,

I am fairly certain that 6067 only came in the European style box without a piece count and in the Samsonite Canada version. It is my understanding that this set was mainly sold in the US from Shop at Home and limited retail outlets. Other sets like 6011, 6023, and 6055 likely also only have European boxes and were not widely available in the states.

Thanks Ben!

This information was really very very helpful! I no longer had to keep waiting for a box version that didn't exist.

I am just curious if you know of castle polybags during the period as well?

This was in reference to a recent an eBay listing for an archer. I am wondering if there are polybags of other classic castle minifigs?

Thank you!
Sim

I actually do not know much about that polybag in question. The lion printing does look accurate for a circa 1984 figure. Quite a few rare items do not always make it into set databases.
