After all these years, I still wonder if Santa either exists or reads our mail, but now, I have a proof that, at least, TLC took note of our wishes.
First Kingdoms batch gave us modular buildings, two opposing human factions, and new parts, now, we shift a big step forward with MMV' class civilians sets, the pitchfork return, the new coloured horse, one-part animals.
I think it is hard for Lego to meet kids and Afols requirements, but I'm confident we are not too far from that.
Next step I would see peasant's tools, two-pikes fork, scythe, hoe, a little bread oven, a wood workshop. Another set would be nice with one or two cows (dark tan this time, with tan horns), a pastor, a dog, one or two goats and little nest where to hide from weather, and elaborate cheese.
Blacksmith's water weel could have been achieved with car doors, while I must admit round browns are more generic. It could have driven a breathe to the forge, to change from the mechanical hammer already seen in the MMV. Also we can see a new? part with the 45° tile 2x1 with plate half.
For the arch window shutter, I would have loved something like the 1x2 shutter with an extra upper rounded part, useable without the window frame too. Wings could have use the old lattice design.
Trees are playable in their original shape, unlike MMV's ones, that loose their foliage everytime.
Nobody noticed the new whip part, with 2/16" cylindrical end.
Once more, no dark brown round plate 2x2 to finish well with the dark brown barrels, while I got two ones from non-lego brick brand.
I don't see why everybody reserves the use of the blinded horse to carriages, mounted horses are often blinded too.
And what's wrong with another blacksmith? Didn't we get quite a wizards' overload too, who ever dared to complain about that?
Well, all in all, it is incredible, Lego castle is back, and thanks for that, TLC!
