One Set
Two Sets
If you look close, you can see that the main structure is double wide with two sets combined.


Ooooohh, okay. Now I see it.... :cry: WOW, there is a huge difference and I definitely prefer the mega-version. :? Arg.

I was looking more closely at the details of this great set and the first thing in my head was that some people from CC was involucred in the design of this set (or it's a tribute for them :) ).

By example:

1. The King has a library, the Admin Bruce likes books.
2. The floor decoration on the towers. I saw here in CC many MOCs with similar floor patterns (but I can't remember who is the creator).
3. The Falcon Knight, a tribute to the Black Falcons faction so beloved for many members here.
4. Details within the tower building.

Update: 5. Also, there are many minifigs that I suppose represents every admin or mods from CC,

or is just my imagination? :?

Well, I guess I might as well give my two cents.

My theory is that the Black Falcons faction will make a reapearance, probably along with another faction (i.e. Forestmen, especially due to the Forestman Collectible Minifigure). This is due to the way the Castle line worked, with Dwarves and Trolls showing up midway along the line.

Someone said earlier that they thought that these Black Falcons would only show up in sets but not have a castle of their own. May I draw your attention to the Dwarve's Mining Fortress? Or even the Troll Mountain Fortress? I can certainly see these new Black Falcons having their own castle. Here's to hoping that I'm right!

Looks like this set will be released on December 26th according to the store calendar. Maybe I'll save that christmas money from all these pre-christmas sales...

Really happy to see what may be a return of the Black Falcon faction. Even if he is a lone BF character he sure is awesome. Look at that shield and the spiffy breastplate.

The level of detail in some of these new Lego sets has been great. I love the windows and the general building of the surrounding structures.

I was very excited when I first saw the images of this set in october :tasty:. That finally a joust tournamet set from Lego, cause this was something that has been on my mind this year, that why dosent TLG do a set with Joust. Then I started to look more closely at the images and then saw the shields with a Falcon, then I was really excited :shock: yes finally Lego does bring back the Black Falcons :D.
Gatekeeper wrote:The Falcons are great, and I do hope they come back, however, I have to agree with many of the posters here. We won't know what LEGO is really going to do with the Falcon's until they decide to release it.
Here's to hoping for the Falcon's reboot!
a one time thing
I agree to that we`ll see is this going to be a one time thing or a reboot. I for one really hope so
But then to one thing the price, whoa that is pricey. These sets are getting more expensive for every year that goes. 119,99 dollars, in the US thats 89 euros and that is not at all bad. But then again thats not the price in Finland, in Finland and around here Legos are very expensive, this set is on in Lego shop for Finland 139 euros = 185 dollars :mad: :orc: that's ridiculous.
Ok now I am just being a whinner, but that doesnt change that fact that Legos are way to expensive. Thats why I buy them from abroad or on 50 % sale.
But back to the beginning, great set, thank you Lego for listening to your consumers/fans for making these great sets.

I just have to note the reason that I appreciate this set. I live in GA and we do have a renfair that happens in april each year. The main gates are almost exactly the same as the archways and towers of this model, and now im thinking what the heck, why not try to build myself a nice renfair map out of it and some of my spare parts. Probally will never happen BUT is something that my coworkers and I have already discussed and might possibly do.

Now i just gotta figure out what pirate ship to break down for the "Pirate Ship" shop and a minifig befitting of my friend who runs it, Captain Matt.....

I will be giving the set a full review most likely when it comes in and I build it for store display.

Ok building The Joust for display purposes and I do say that I rather like it. Good mix of parts, I love the competitors tents and such. Well done towers without the use of the big wall plate we saw so much in HP sets.

Overall Good set, 20 bucks more than MMV with a few less parts, BUT it still is more than worth it. I will be doing the 2x version that it shows on the back of the box.

Hello guys and happy new year!(This is my 1st post for 2012)

Well i am not sure if you have noticed, but if you check the emblems on the black falcon barding:
http://www.eurobricks.com/bonaparte/ima ... ck_010.jpg
Are similar with the emblem on the lego minifigures musketeer:
http://www.1000steine.com/brickset/mini ... col051.jpg
This may be a nice idea to use the barding for a musketeer horse, or you can even use the musketeer torso for a castle archer (a black falcon elite archer since it is also blue?). It also has a belt "to support" the quiver. What do you think? :raiseone:

I bet this has already been said, but just in case it has not - this is my favorite castle set ever! I know most of you prefer the older castle sets, but IMHO 10223 is second to none! Here is a list of the top 3 reasons why I love this set -

1. Good price/piece ratio
2. No panels (all brick built)
3. Awesome knight mini figures (black falcon!)

Seems like a great idea. Not a big fan of the shirt collar, but the idea of the belt supporting the quiver is a great observation :)

Picked up my Joust set this weekend! :) It really worked out too, because I received a $100 gift card for Christmas to the Lego Store. Then, my new Lego catalog came in the mail on Thursday, and it has a 10% off coupon for any one item. Plus, I had $15 in VIP accrued on my account. So, it ended up with the coupon savings, VIP, and gift card, I only owed .77 cents for my Kingdoms Joust. :D :D
