First Battle Packs and now this? I'll make a note to sign over my paycheck to LEGO from now on. Its hard to look professional at work when drooling over stuff like this. Chess never looked so good! This is a definate must have! :shock: :D

Ohh my...I held off on the first castle chess set because I had three Viking chess sets. However, I will have to get one of these.

My geuss of the price of this set will be $200 Canadian. I hope I will have enough when it comes out. Goes and pouts becuase of a lousy paper route for a jog.

This looks like lego is trying for a higher aged audience. Evil thrones? Check. Random weapons scattered about? Check. wicked sweet armies? check.

How much do you think it will cost?

Over at Eurobricks, some posters estimate it will be US$150. I think that's about right. In the UK, I reckon it'll be between £90 and £110.

This is sweet. I sincerely hope that I can afford this, because it's unbelievable in its scope and fig selection. It's like I've died and gone to heaven...

A lot. Likely $150 or more. I expect a sales limit per customer and a massive crush from the Bricklink shop owners. This set is worth more than the retail at a per part count to them I am guessing. Many fortunes will be made and spent on this set.

So wait....Let me understand this. I can buy this and the Advent Calender, and the minifigs are fine? There are no Magnets or glue on them?
