I finally bought this set because I find a good bargain.
I was very happy to have in my hands a big castle set since the last one was the 10193 MMV. And this was only my second castle after the 6085 Black Monarch's Castle
I have to say that I am satisfied by the set: it's really neat and I think it satisfies AFOLs expectations from different points of view.
First of all it is modular and that's great, both for children and for adults, since it's good both for playability and creativity. Then the design is really interesting, in particular the two towers on the back.
The new (for me) system to open the gate, without any wire, is clever and well-thought.
Having said so, I have to admit that the building was a bit boring but I know it is difficult to avoid that in a castle when you have a lot of walls to build.
I think this castle has a lot of playability features and that's very good for children... less for me... indeed I have already an idea to use this castle's parts in my next MOC.
Indeed this set is just amazing for parts (933 parts): a lot of them and really useful.
It goes without saying that I didn't put the stickers on. The new pieces (panel, corner...) are not as bad as expected: they are smaller than their ancestors and that's good. This set is very rich in small parts and that's even better.
Minifigs are ok, but just soldiers and a king. Only one horse is included.
A good castle but I would not pay 100 euros for it.
