In 2003, the set was produced again as a “Legend” and is available from Shop at Home for $39.99.
Id like to see this re-released again with the current 2008 world exchange rates.
US$39.99 by the time I paid for postage etc to SAH it was more like $75.00 US for me last time to purchase this from LEGO. I was unable to locate the set in any stores in Australia.
This little castle packs a very large punch, I would rate this set on a piece by piece comparison as the best castle set of all time, there are no undesirable pieces in this set for me. (Exception is the juniorised yellow Tudor castle wall piece I prefer brick and plate built Tudor).
It has for me the right combination of walls/plates and roof slopes, and all are in the desirable colours unlike black walls for 6086 Black Knight's Castle and 10176 Royal King's Castle.
I’m sorry this set predated horse barding and unique castle minifigure head design but this is easily made up for by having a two horse to 6 minifigure ratio and knights with plumes ect ect.
In 1986 with 6041 Armour Shop and 6067 Guarded Inn this was part of a great castle line up, then in 2002 with 3739 Blacksmith Shop instead of 6041 Armour Shop it was part of what I consider the ultimate 3 set castle line up.
