Best....Lair....EVER!
" As the brave knight rides ever closer to the ominous prison tower at the top of the mountainous cliff, he studies it's defenses. To save the princess, he must either ride through the dangerous gate, or get off his horse and climb the tower. Either way he will be confronted by one or both of the opposing Knights of the Dragon. Luckily he has his squire along, so there is a third option. He sends his squire up the staircase and rides through the strangely open gate. Jumping from his horse, he climbs the steps on the inside of the tower, and confronts the green knight. Defeating him with his shining sword, he bounds up the rest of the stairs, and glimpses his squire grappling with the archer, both their weapons scattered. Helping each other, the two Knights of the Lion tie up the enemy. They fling open the prison, and descend the tower with the princess. After jumping on his horse, the knights and the princess are promptly fried by the two dragons they had previously thought to be gargoyles.
The End.
I hope you enjoyed this story that has highlighted the best points of this product, and I hope you are fortunate enough to be able to get one yourself. "

Stand alone set or detailed addition?
" When you get this set, you build it, thinking you are building an outpost for the kingdom. What you are really doing, though, is building a tower that can stand alone, combine with another one or more, or add onto the castle. I have two myself, as does my little brother. So far they are great sets, and I can't wait to build a castle with them. The minifigs that come in this set are great. Three minifigs in a $20 set is pretty good. One thing that I can say about the Kingdoms line is that they have a ton of minifigs and accessories. This set has a good mixture of grey, red, green plates, and brown details to make it interesting and fun to build! I suggest you get one, and if you have a lot of money, get two! "

Red Castle Extreme
" This is a large castle, and it is the largest Lego set I have ever owned. The detail is astounding, and the functionality is awesome. I have added minifigs from my collection and from other Kingdoms sets to supplement it's inhabitants, and it has greatly upped the fun. The gate mechanism is one that I would never had thought of and could play with for quite a while (then again, I'm easily amused.) The catapults are fun, but you have to be sure to point them well or you'll hit your own castle! There are flame pieces in abundance. The King's horse, with a helmet and blanket that is reminiscent of knight's kingdom horse wear, is one of the best parts of the set. The towers are fun, and their and the wall's modular setup is an enormous boost to the playability. You can be creative and make several different fortresses if you want. With some modification you can turn the corner towers into separate buildings altogether. The walls remind me of classic castle sets when I set them apart from the other modules. It took me a while to figure out how to lock the drawbridge up. It's the tan axle with a stud on the end that click-hinges down to lock the drawbridge in place.
If you get this set, I hope you like it. The only thing that is even remotely mediocre about it is the price, I would have liked it to be about 80 dollars. Through the VIP program I got 10 dollars off - so I did get it for only 90 dollars. "

Tiny But Strong
" This set is one that embodies the older sets from the Castle theme. It has two minifigs for such a small set, and has a nicely detailed catapult, as well as being accessory-rich. There is a sword and shield for the Red Knight, and a sword and hauberk for the Green Knight. The new helmet pieces are great, and this set comes with a dark metallic gray one.
Overall this is an awesome set, along with all of the other set in the Kingdoms line. "

Kingdoms!
" I was overjoyed to find this set in the shop at home site. The new Kingdoms line is finally here, and I'm so happy! I can't wait for more of the sets to come out, for as of the writing of this review only one is on the site.
The VERY best thing is that there are no walking skeletons or anything preposterous like that. Both sides are human (although I wouldn't mind dwarves or elves or something like that.)
P.S. I'd also like to say that I love the baby dragon piece that came in the Kingdom line! (Not in the US as of yet.) "

I laughed, I laughed more, it was moving, but...
" This product is, as most everyone knows and is crazy over, the first feature length Lego movie. That alone made me want to see it, and the previews I saw beforehand made it much more. It has characters ranging from a pyromaniac fireman, to a clumsy prince, to a villain bent on world domination. (Isn't that what it's always about?) The team of heroes is made up of minifigs used to working alone, but against all odds come through to save the day.
There is one main problem I see with this epic. It's antagonist is a wizard, wielding magic, and leading an army of skeletons. I find this somewhat disturbing, and rather annoying. I hope that in future movies, Lego will not include these themes.
My mom thought it was silly, and didn't watch all of it. My little brother and I liked it. I guess it all depends on how hard your Lego core is.
Things I especially liked:
Soundtrack was great.
Baby rockmonster was awesome.
Knights and forest were vibrant and colorful.
Characters were funny and interesting
"Good guy" giant troll.
Things I didn't really like:
Wizard
Magic
Skeleton Army
All in all, it was a good movie, but I wish it hadn't had those specific defects, although some of you will not mind at all. Add to your collection, or rent it from a library, you most likely will not be sorry.
I hope for many more Lego films, and that some of the characters at least carry over. May there be sets based on these films? I would hope so, but I don't think it will happen. "

It's a keychain...
" This purchase is my first keychain. While the keychains overall are awesome, I especially like the bricks, which are universally symbolic of Lego.
The Play Experience is about nil, because, well, it's a keychain! You don't generally play with a keychain. Unless you like creations that can hang from your keys, or dangle on your backpack's zipper string...
I think that this is a good buy, unless of course you don't have keys... "

Dwarven Warriors
" These little (no pun intended) dwarves are ready for battle. With three axes, a torch, and...shovel? Pick axe? Hammer?
Ok, so the hammer, pick axe, and shovel could have been replaced by more axes, swords, or even a battle hammer! The ore is a nice touch, adding some play experience to the set. The play experience was rated a 3, because well, it's a set made up of minfigs, so there aren't any special functions, or vehicles. This set is more for somebody who likes minifigs, not for somebody who likes big sets with vehicles and buildings. (That kinda goes without saying, right?)
Overall, I would say that this is the best Battle Pack currently made, having axes, beards, amazing helmets, and two torsos only used by dwarves. "

Speeding? No sir!
" Officer: "Yes, I'm afraid you were in fact speeding."
Kranxx: "Poodoo."
"While this set is amazing in and of itself, the pieces it incorporates into it's build are great! From the minifigs to the weapons, this set is well worth the money.
The minifigs, Kranxx and the Officer are great. The officer looks like he's seen it all, and then arrested it all. Kranxx looks like he's a gangster who just loves to speed on his space bike - characterized by the tentacles streaming back from his head. The sign and traffic light are intriguing - they can be used in any town, whether futuristic or modern. The weapons are play-invoking. The Space Police arsenal - flick fire missiles, make you want to shoot them across the room, and you can once you get the hang of it! The blaster on Kranxx's bike gives you some nice pieces, a translucent cone and long stick. You can take it off and use it as some sort of staff weapon for Kranxx if you wish.
Overall, this set lights a fire of creativity in you, and enables you to play with the vigor of a 5-year-old, whether you are 10, or 50! "

Pitter patter pitter patter...
" You see Squidman brush past you as you're standing on the street corner on Ackrenia 7. You here the sounds of sirens and hover engines. You gasp in amazement as the Space Police Raptor zooms by you, in hot pursuit of the criminal. You look down, and see a lonely $100 bill laying at your feet.
Ok, let me say a couple things about his set. For one, the Space Police Raptor is amazing. This vehicle is sleek, and just LOOKS fast. You have to love the way it bends in the middle. The two downsides to this set is that there is only one dollar bill,(that's only a mild complaint,) and that Squidman is on foot. Like in the short story at the beginning of this review, the criminal would have no chance. This consequently lowers the play value quite a bit. Even if he had a small speeder like in Gold Heist, or Space Speeder, it would up the play value a ton, because you can fly them both around the room, instead of trying to fly the Raptor around, while making the criminal run.
Even with the downsides, this set is still a great price for the pieces and play value. If you have the money, go ahead and buy it, especially if you're a Lego space freak like me. "
