Set 6305 Guards on Horseback
« on: November 20, 2013, 05:45:58 »
Would someone please explain why this set is listed in the knights theme?  For lack of a proper theme or even in History, maybe in with the Pirates theme.

I wondered about that too. It doesn't really fit with pirates either though. History would probably be the best place.

Just a guess, There are more collectors who visit the medieval section of the web shops that any other so getting exposure for the set is more important than putting it in the most logical place
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

Yes George they are but you can only buy them in the pcc and only 2 per person  :loco: "play fair" Its like throwing a piece of raw meat in the crowed hungry lion cage, "Now behave"

Well, that should be in "Victorian" or "1900's"  like the original one but as that theme is not around anymore I guess they put it where it fits the better according to existent themes.

As they are "soldiers"... the closest by association is "knights".

This might be why they are now stating that new sets are chosen that will fit in with current themes.

Makes sense I gues, means more sales from the regular buyers who only have stuff from the last few years.
