6074 Black Falcon's Fortress along with 6066 Camouflaged Outpost. It was the best combo ever... I think my dad loved Legos more than I did, and he didn't even have them as a kid. Robin hood versus the Sheriff of Nottingham. No wonder I became a fan for life. Those were the best sets, imho. Of course nostalgia has a little part in it.

My first was
http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=6035-1 Castle Guard with the red octagon piece
and Black Knight. Also had a red case of lego which was probably my first set ever. It was a small rough case of basic bricks that opened with two latches. Cant find it on bricklink.
And the reason I know I had to two first sets is that I lost the good pieces to it like the plume, helmet, sword and ghost. But I went searching my whole house because I got lego crazy all of a sudden and I found all of it like under my parents bed and down in the air vents lol

Hey wait... You know what...that was just a storage container.. No wonder I never found it as a set. Then if I got that in 1985...and those castle sets were what..1986-87? Then my parents just bought the container for nothing? lol I am guessing they just bought me a basic building block set, because I only distinctly remember the two small castle sets and a bunch of basic bricks.

The guy I bought it from on eBay said that the little pirate and castle sets that he included with it didn't originally come with it. But I think he had another 1985 and a 1986 case so there was probably different years Lego made them. ~KnightMan~

my first castle themed set was the forestmen's crossing, my first castle was the black falcon. My grandfather would always purchase me a lego set for any gift worth occasion.

I started out with this three-pack of sets which I just happened to pick from a bunch of stuff they had put as presents for kids to pick from at the factory where my dad works, it was a yearly happening. I still own everything except the manuals and to this day I feel extremely lucky that's what I picked 'cos I can't even remember taking it from a shelf and if I hadn't I might not have gotten into castle. http://www.bricklink.com/SL/casbon-1.jpg?0

This might be the bricklink entry for the set. It says 1984 for the date released.
You would rather be building right now.

But mine doesn't have those little trays and that one doesn't look like it has latches like mine. ~KnightMan~

Well, I thought they looked quite similiar, and the year is really close, but I guess it still remains a mystery.

I started with LEGO Castle when I was about 9, so my first set was 7009, or The Final Joust.

I can hardly remember my first sets, but it must have been one of these:

Image
6016 "Knight's Arsenal" - since it's the oldest one this must be it... although there's also the chance that I just imagine having this set...

Image
or it could have been "Knight's Stronghold" - but I guess it was my first castle... oh the good old days :sly:

Mine were these (I think these are in order that I got them):

I wish that I had half the funds available back then that I do now. Those sets were so fantastic. I'm just glad that we took pretty good care of the few figs that we had, and they are still part of my collection :)
