Weekly Set Review: Castle Mini Figures

Discussion of official LEGO Castle Theme sets and products

Now this is a classic! One of my first castle-sets, my parents got it for me during a vacation to Denmark in the early 90.s

The only thing that I can complain about is...
well nothing really, it´s simple but perfect! :D

Love that peasant guy, he´s a nice touch!

Maybe it can be a legend in combo with som other small sets?
I'm back, and so is Castle!

Good Idea old chap! Sorry, got a bit funny there. Really, that is a good idea! Combo pack of minifigs and small vehicles. Maybe they need to produce redesigned legends in the style of the golden years!

By far the best minifig pack ever! I wish that LEGO would come out with supporting packs like this. Peasants, two factions, and weapons. I need a time machine for this one, I remember seeing them and thinking Oh I can always get these later. I need to go back and slap myself. Also to warn of the upcoming change in gray bricks so I could have begun hording them back then. Awesome set!!! LEGO why have you forsaken us!! :P

There's nothing nicer than a minifig set. It doesn't matter what line it's from, all the sets with a few factions / pirates or soldiers / and so forth, are all great.

The day they stopped coming was a sad, sad day. I remember still being able to get Black Falcons like five years after Black Falcon sets stopped being sold because these little things were still in a ton of stores. Fantastic stuff.

And it comes with a peasant! If anything, Lego needed more villagers when it came to Castle.

I love this set. Great assortment of figures. Too bad i only got 1 of them.
9/10. 9 because I dont like forestmen that much, and I would have like to see another Crusader.

Ah, the source of my original sigfig (Black Falcon swordsman). 10/10, for sentimental reasons. I bought a total of two sets of these figures, and it would be awesome if LEGO reissued it.

Hello!


It's a classic set. It comes with a good assortment of figures. It was one of only two sources of these infamous pitchforks in Germany. I, however, only got one copy back then. Even if you lived when those cool sets were produced it didn't mean you'd have bought thousands of them :wink:

This is an incredible minifig pack. Lego include all the best things they done in those years:
-Lions
-Falcons
-Forestmen
-Peasant
-Forestmen Shield
-Brown D Basket

That is simply incredible. I don't have it however, and I always hope to have it. It's so amazing. The problem is the value of this set in the market actually. It's sure I'll buy one.

Really nothing to complain. Perfect. :D
10/10

Not much to say, except that Lego needs to really consider making this kind of sets again :x . I love the pitchfork that the villager has, and with 20 of these sets you can make a nifty little army to go with a castle. Definetly a favorite of mine, I would love to own a couple. 10/10.

Excellent set. Since I rarely collect anything besides minifigures, this set is especially great.

I was in my dark ages when this set was released. But I would consider this the best Minifig set that Lego has ever produced. I absolutely love the black falcons and the forestmen....fantastic era in castle sets.

I just wish that LEGO made a new set that was simular to this one, it was a great and usefull set. They also can make a new set that contains farmers with equipment. and a civilian pack with just civilians in it. that would be great :D
