5979 small dragon castle review
« on: August 11, 2012, 13:57:14 »
Here is a review of the 5979 small castle set.  Bought this at TRU at a 50 dollar price point. 



Here are the walls and front gate.  The walls are like the 3268 empire castle walls but with a different color.  Also the breakaway wall is in the curve on this set.



Here is the front of the tower.  This is all one piece on the front.  All the walls, gate and tower front are the same size.  The back of the tower attaches just like the current castle towers.

Here are the klickies.  It uses current figs but sporting new silver flare and bucket helmets. 





As you can see here, the viking crest thingy has been added.



The front gate is pretty cool.  I wish PM would release a castle with the new blue and black axe knight heraldry.  Seems like we have plenty of dragon stuff.

Nice review, Elric! I love the klickies! :)

If you look closely, its the baker that has been scalped and held for ransom.

Perhaps four towers in each corner?? and make a square castle?

Thanks a lot for this review. It seems like a cool set, but there really should be more than just two figures and a small dragon. It seems a bit empty to me. And why is the platform part of the wall light silver instead of the matching shade?

I want these helmets! :)

I was wondering about him too. :lol:
