Excellent, thanks for the confirmation, StJohn! When you open him, could I have a photo for the DB? I'll add it to 5670 now. I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of the set is reused parts.

Well, I've already sent them on their way to their final destination without properly unwrapping them! So sorry, sbblabotw. But I trust that some other member might be able to supply a picture in due course.

The word at Klickywelt is that Geobra has meanwhile stopped supplying red trolls through DS, at least in Germany. Some people got lucky, though.

Best wishes

Of course, that's what you should have done. (Unless you were keeping one.) I've cropped the box-photo in the meantime, better than nothing. Anyone else have to photograph for me?

Just resurrecting this old thread from the dead to share my bewilderment about the Geobra design department in their finishing touches to the 5670 Castle Gate with Troll:



I finally unpacked one and was dumbfounded to find out that the rock formations on either side of the castle facade (where they should go according to the building instruction) are not connected. I mean: they do not hold on to the wall – you have to position them against it! :doh: I know that the box art does indicate so, but was still struck by this sloppy design. The same part (30 20 7323 - Rock formation, small, fits around corner of building) does connect nicely to the 5480 Secret Dragon Fort, and similar rocks are fixed tightly to the facade of the 6697 Take Along Black Baron's Castle. What I mean to say is: these rocks and these walls aren't meant to be together, yet ended up in the same set.
