Series 7.... It's a Boar! (and other castle parts)

When series 7 was announced, and since it came out, I initially decided that the Boar Knight would be like the Black Falcon in the Royal Joust exclusive set (i.e. special and singular). Since opening a few from the box I ordered, I have decided he is actually quite AMAZING and I want an army of them. The way the metallic and crimson colors catch the light is quite sinister and a GREAT human faction to go alongside the orc/troll armies from the Castle fantasy line. I love this new knight, and if you all don't want yours... well, I believe they are quite FANTASTIC. And at 5 to a case, I will find it easier to build this faction than it was to get my Roman Legion set up. :mrgreen:

Given the last post weighed up against some of the earlier ones, there's clearly quality issues. I have ordered one through Bricklink from Canadia, I wonder what it's going to be like :o .

I grabbed an open box last week. Have to say that while it's nice to have another faction, the Boar Knight is not my favorite. I'm pretty unimpressed with him, actually.

I have not seen them around here yet but will get one when I see them. If they are good might get more than one.

I got 2 last week (for EUR 1,99) and I think the production quality is ok... the contrast of print/background is sufficient on shield an armor... BUT: as a whole I'm not very impressed with the design... the black armor is rather shiny an looks not as menacing as in the photos... I guess I'll only get a few more and refrain from buying a complete army

I just noticed something odd, in the new magazine the black knight has no insignia on his shield :?

Went to TRU today and they had 66 S7 so I got a Evil Knight, Aztec Warrior, and Viking Woman, believe me I wanted alot more than that :P
The boar on the Evil Knight shield was almost brown sadly :?

That seems to be the general consensus.

That is sad, as what was already a low sought-out minifg for me (beyond the one for a set) has somehow become even less desirable.

Have you (or anyone) tried the Viking Woman's new helm and hair piece on a male minifig? I'm very curious as to the results.

I'll try it today and get a pic up on my Flicker.
To bad I don't have any male Vikings though :? .

Oh, WOW! :shock:

I definitely didn't pick up on that. What a great tribute to one of the best movies EVER!
