I haven't been a member very long so this is a bit late to be posting, but what the heck.
I bought 6096 about a week ago for what would be $38.00 American dollars, right off Ebay. It was (sadly) the best deal to get on Ebay, and ended up as the best for quite a few months.
I did A LOT of research on the set prior to purchasing it, as to make sure I was getting value for money, but there's only so much you can find out about a retired Lego set. Obviously Classic-Castle came in handy, as well as (suprisingly) Lego.com and stuff like google and junk. I don't have long so my analysis will be short and brief (well, short and brief for me).
People are VERY right in saying that there aren't enough minifigs, AND that it's junk if you don't have another castle/fortress or a friend with one, but in my opinion it is still a very good set. I have a lot of castle lego... well... not a lot compared to what I have seen on this site, but still a bit. I already have enough knights to support this set and a castle (although... I dread to say it on Classic-Castle but it isn't Lego... it's Imaginext.
Hey I got it a few years ago when I was even younger than I am now, and I'm only 12 ! It's alright to use as a place with a prize at the top or something like that, but not a primary defence castle, because you can't fit the Lego onto it or anything) but I also have some small scenery that is... I dread to say this even more but... megabloks...
but I don't want to turn this into a Lego versus megabloks discussion so... on with the topic:
This set is good to eradicate annoying friends Lego Castles that are just so freaking fortified it isn't funny... it's just annoying ! But it would be even better to use it as a primary component of a siege, and to include a large assistance party (if that's what you call it) and have your own base aswell! Too bad there were hardly any good bull sets sold with a lot of figs. But you could get around that by using the universal excuse of "Alliances". That's how we do it where I come from ! There are a lot of people that complain about the firing cannons because it isn't historical and whatnot but remember... Knights Kingdom wasn't ever supposed to be real... just look at Knights Kingdom 2! Lightning from their swords ! It's all up to what you want OUT of the set that determines how good what the stuff IN it actually is. Anyway, I think I'm going to go think of ways to use the ideas in this message and some other stuff I've thought of to harness "Bull's Attack" to my liking. Still have to wait for it to arrive though... stupid Ebay...
P.S. As for it compared to 6062 Battering Ram... the castle is good. The ram... isn't. And the new "King's Siege Tower", "Vladek's Siege Engine" and "Battle Wagon" ARE very good, but look at thier prices added up together when "Bull's Attack" offers just about as much. I.e, a prison, siege tower, catault and figures (uh... irony...) just a little more... "Classic"
Gotta love the classics! I do!!
P.P.S. The Bull Warriors are cool!!
