Welcome (even if you've been here longer than me!).
3667 was one of the first sets I got when I started collecting, it's such a great set, I think the 90s had the best overall stuff for the knights theme.

3669 is indeed cool as heck.

Maybe so, its heraldry is great and I love the entire purple knight range, but its 1986 predecessor 3329 is properly sweet. It's the ONLY unopened box I shall hold on to while slimming down my collection:



Simply because the back art shows how this set more than any other marks a departure into new territories: Just compare that badass armour with those guys on the wall! Bye bye, Klickyland, let's get ready for the nineties. :yup:



Apologies for browsing some old threads.

Best wishes

Welcome. That is a great set you have at your feet there.

If you ever do open it, the Gummi (rubber band) on the crossbow will probably have perished?

Yes, it's a lovely set!

Probably. But the thought that there is an untouched old-style chrome sword inside that box gives me a warm feeling.

So do NOT collect the newest Dragons Theme sets with female figures. Those klickies will be bald in about 25 years.

What's interesting about that set is that it appears in a couple of catalogue images, this one and at least another show them as part of the Nuremberg Kingdom. Then they appear as attacking the old castle and old chrome knights, making way for the 3666 generation of knights.
