Thanks Andi,

That is an interesting sword with the gems  :hmm:
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:

While the sword is a little bit "He-Man", it would make a nice quest item for stories.

Of the 4 green knights, this guy isn't the "beefiest" to my eye, and I'd have arranged the body parts differently within the group of 4. All the better for those of us who customise.

I like the looks of those new boots, unfortunately this new group is being eyed up mostly for parts.

 :lol: True, but I always use the add-on packs for customising, if there is enough variation between the figures. For example, the 4 Gauls in 7923 & 7924 do not make much of a horde, but get 3-4 packs of each and swap parts around and you have a very nice group. Try swapping parts between the legionnaries in 7878 and, not so good, but then the whole joy of the Romans is their uniformity.

Great review of this set, Andi  :)9!
  Forget about all of the other stuff,....all we need is the reintroduction of the 3526 Fire Engine!

It is quite HeMan-ish but I was liking it for your idea of a prize in the quest, especially how TJ lights them up from the bottom and gives them a sort of magical appearance  ;)

Thanks for the pics, Andi... I'm still not sure if I like these sets but I will have lots of time to wait and think and wait (and wait) before us overseas folks have a chance to buy them!

Thank you, Andi!

This Green Dragon Knight is my very favorite of ALL the new Dragon Knights!

I copied a picture of him weeks ago (although his boots and pants are a bit different). I've been wondering how long it would be before I would finally be able to buy one.

Hopefully, they'll be over here in the United States soon ... ;)

Thanks again and all the best,
Richard
