Yeah that is a pretty nice collection. Now if only I could win the lottery and have the disposable income to just snatch something like that up :)

That's a nice assorted collection of classic castle sets ranging from small all the way to large. If I didn't already have most of those sets I'd consider picking it up. I do like how he displayed them in a custom scene for the listing - that's a nice touch that you don't see very often.

yeah, the presentation caught my eye too... sad that most of those sets from my childhood are bagged up in the basement... I would love to have space to do a scene like that

That's quite a span of years for that collection. I do wonder why he has the Dark Dragon's Den (a fairly poor set) front and center.

It looks like the only one he has that fit the bottom of the hill. The others are elevated at least somewhat and the Den should be in the hillside. I liked the scene so much I put it on my monitor background to watch for a while. I have those sets and more and I am wondering how to display them... Many castles and little room to display...the usual woe, but still I keep wanting more. I'm in the market for 0016, 15, 6102, 6103.

I was wondering the same thing.

It is a nice display. I have most of those sets displayed in my basement. I think I should take some pictures to share.

The lot went for a cheap price too, com paired to if he sold each as their own listing.

An incredibly cheap price. I think I'd have bid had I see it in time.
