Lego wasn't shabby in producing a unique minifigure torso design for the male spectator. (King? No crowns back then).

I also like the minifigures alot. The horses are cool but tend to fall apart.

This is my favorite set, because of nostalgia (it's my first castle set!!) and because of the general design (realism, colors, etc.).
Like others, the blue knight is my favorite. I like the very simple and "neutral" emblems. And the two blue cups look funny to me!
Something that hasn't been said: this is the only set where the "building" scale is 1 × 1 comparing to the figs. I mean that on other sets, walls, towers, carts, boats, etc. are very short regarding the size of a fig. So, for example, the top of the Tournament tent is higher than a castle wall on another set!
